Um WOW. This might have been the most immersive book I’ve ever read! The 70s encapsulated in every way, the good and the bad. The way it was written—in a unique sort-of magazine interview style—was really cool and made the characters seem all too real. Even with little “action” or typical descriptions, the dialogue captured everything about the band’s rise to fame, what they felt, what they pursued, who they were, who they loved. I couldn’t get over how alive TJR made each character seem, just by giving them words to say. There was so much to uncover between the lines. Never has lone dialogue conveyed so much. 

Growing up listening to Fleetwood Mac and being enamored with the band’s history and relationships made this book even more fascinating for me. You can clearly tell the inspiration is there, the similarities between Daisy and Stevie and Billy and Lindsey, etc., but it still felt like its own thing. I’m so excited for the show adaptation because I desperately need the band to be real. And the lyrics! Ugh they’re beautiful. 

This book is hyped for a reason. Believe it.
