    Didn't she write this badly??? This book is truly offensive. I really wish Judy Huddleston would've kept her bizarre sexual fantasies about Jim Morrison to herself instead of trying to present them as a "memoir" in order to make money. So, as long as someone calls a book a "memoir" they can say whatever they please? This reads like a kinky piece of fan fiction and I cannot stress the FICTION strongly enough.

I really wish Judy Huddleston would've kept her bizarre sexual fantasies about Jim Morrison to herself instead of trying to present them as a "memoir" in order to make money. So, as long as someone calls a book a "memoir" they can say whatever they please? This reads like a kinky piece of fan fiction and I cannot stress the FICTION strongly enough. I don't know what kind of fee the normally intelligent and honest Pamela Des Barres received for writing the foreword for this but it must have been a pretty hefty fee. Those in rock groupie circles have publicly stated that Huddleston may have known Jim Morrison for about five minutes, and that's about it, if she knew him AT ALL. (These idiotic books. Exactly how many long-term, serious relationships could a young man on the go like Morrison cram into a five-year period?) Huddleston wrote this decades after Morrison's death and had years of drug and alcohol abuse, head injuries from car accidents that were a result of driving under the influence, stints is psychiatric wards and yet she can recall her supposed time (none of the surviving Doors and none of their inner-circle seem have any memory at all of Ms. Huddleston) with absolute 110% accuracy. Every move Jim Morrison made, everything word that came out of his mouth, the color socks he had on way back when - I mean it is amazing how clear this "wild child's" memory is. I'm a lot younger and in better shape than she is and my memory is not that good. Des Barres says that Huddleston "kept journals". I don't know where Huddleston found the time to keep journals but if she did they must look like a set of encyclopedias. And I do believe that Huddleston owes a huge apology to sexual assault survivors everywhere. Huddleston clearly hung up her soul and used the word "rape" in order to sell her book. So, Jim Morrison "rapes" her and she spends the next four years hunting and tracking him so she can have sex with him again and again? That is offensive. Sorry "Judy", I'm not buying it, not for a second. You'll have to explain your ongoing attraction to and admiration for Jim Morrison to all rape survivors everywhere. So you decided to wait decades to write your..."memoir"...instead of taking legal action against Morrison for "raping" you - because it wasn't as if it was common knowledge that Jim Morrison was already all over law enforcement's radar or that they would jump at the chance to nail him on a sexual assault charge or anything, nah, everyone knew that law enforcement saw Jim as fine, upstanding young man - and seek monetary damages? Run out of employment options later in life or something Ms. Huddleston? After reading this I am left with serious doubts as to whether Huddleston knew Jim Morrison at all. This is just another Aschroft/Kennealy situation, with Huddleston, Ashcroft and Kennealy not quite grasping the fact that memoirs are supposed to be about what actually happened, not what they all WISHED had happened. And maybe my math is off, but according to Huddleston, she was dating Jim Morrison after he died. Nothing to see here folks. Just a spoiled, do-nothing, drunk, drugged-up girl and her offensive, tasteless, libelous attempt at making money off of Jim Morrison, and it is very convenient for Huddleston, as it was for Ashcroft and Kennealy, that both Morrison and Pamela Courson are no longer around to defend themselves. VERY convenient. (I'm absolutely thrilled that Huddleston didn't make a penny off of this.)

    I didn't really care for this book. It's not really a memoir of Jim Morrison. It's more of a recounting of intimate encounters between Morrison and Huddleston. That's really all their so-called relationship turned out to be, simply sex. While there isn't anything wrong with that, I just felt that she kept wanting a meeting of the minds, but all Morrison wanted from her was a meeting of the bodies. I also had a hard time with Huddleston herself. Granted, she is only a teen when she meets Morrison I didn't really care for this book. It's not really a memoir of Jim Morrison.

Granted, she is only a teen when she meets Morrison and fixates on him, which makes her actions rather forgiveable, but while other reviewers have mentioned that this is a coming-of-age memoir, I couldn't really see how she grew or matured at all throughout the book. Rather disappointed in this book.

    This book put me in mind of Peggy Caserta's "Going Down With Janis"; i.e. "I was once the lover of a famous, yet deeply troubled 60's rock star who died, aged 27. Although I survived, my life got pretty screwed up too." It told me nothing important I didn't already know about Jim Morrison. Although it did tell me quite a bit about Judy Huddleston, I'm afraid to say, I didn't find her interesting.

    I couldn't help but be interested in this story. (guilty pleasure) However, it didn't deliver for me. The author writes about her life and adds the small pieces where Jim enters to treat her like a groupie. The book feels like her cash in on the experiences that she had with a famous person. I did not love it madly. I couldn't help but be interested in this story. (guilty pleasure) However, it didn't deliver for me.

    Around five in the morning, the phone rang, breaking dawn's quiet reign. "Judy, it's for you," my mother called groggily. I staggered half-awake into the living room and picked up the receiver. "Hullo..." "Hi--it's Jim!" He sounded like a bright child answering an impossible algebra problem. I actually didn't recognize his voice. "Jim who?" I asked. "Jim!" The persistent, plaintive cry came through. "Don't you even remember me?" "Oh yeah, I remember you," I answered. I'd hardly forgotten; it had been Around five in the morning, the phone rang, breaking dawn's quiet reign. "Judy, it's for you," my mother called groggily. I staggered half-awake into the living room and picked up the receiver. "Hullo..." "Hi--it's Jim!" He sounded like a bright child answering an impossible algebra problem. I actually didn't recognize his voice. "Jim who?" I asked. "Jim!" The persistent, plaintive cry came through. "Don't you even remember me?" "Oh yeah, I remember you," I answered. I'd hardly forgotten; it had been about a month since I saw him at the office in L.A. My heart beat wildly; I felt faint. "You don't sound very glad to hear from me." "I am. It's just that I was asleep." "You gave me the wrong phone number! All I got was a gas station in Culver City. What did you do that for? Then I had to go ask Ronnie for it, and he didn't even know what it was! So I called information. There was only one Huddleston in Corona del Mar, so I figured it had to be you." Jim sounded proud of suffering through such an ordeal. "Why did you give me the wrong number?" he asked. "I didn't do it on purpose," I said. "You must've forgotten to use the area code. There's a different one down here." It seemed like he should be able to figure this stuff out. "Why didn't you tell me then? Will you come up and see me?" he asked in a woebegone voice. "When?" I asked. "Now." "Now? Well, um, where are you?" "Hollywood," he said, like where the hell else would he be? "Yeah, well, where in Hollywood?" I asked. He named the Beverly Terrace Hotel, corner of Doheny and Melrose, suite number, and floor. "Are you going to come?" "Yes. But I'm an hour away, you know." I felt sure he hadn't the faintest idea where Corona del Mar was. My mom came into the room, shook her head and rolled her eyes. "But will you leave right now?" "Well, I have to put on some clothes first," I stalled. "How long will that take?" he asked sarcastically. "About ten minutes, I guess." "And then you'll leave? Are you really coming? Promise me you're coming." "I promise. I'm coming," I repeated to my mother's smothered laughter. "Please hurry!" he pled as if he was dying. Then he hung up.

    Having already read Judy's 'This Is The End My Only Friend', I wasn't sure how different this would be. A couple of pages in and all that is forgotten. I found 'Love Him Madly' to flow much better. The re-written sections are improved and the new text adds so much more to Judy's story. It feels richer and lends much more depth and emotion to the journey. The book is beautifully written - poetic, even - and it picks you up and drops you slap bang into the late 60's.

It feels richer and lends much more depth and emotion to the journey. The book is beautifully written - poetic, even - and it picks you up and drops you slap bang into the late 60's. The language doesn't merely provide you with factual information, it carries you away and takes you to a new plane of thinking - rather like a Doors song. On a personal level I can relate to Judy's situation with Jim so painfully well. Years ago, when I was 18, I fell in love with a drummer in a band. I know all too well that desire to have that person fall in love with you but in reality only ever experiencing a small part of their existence. I experienced those late phone calls after weeks or months of silence to say he was back from touring and would I come over and see him. I too would drop everything (including my determination NOT to see him) and fall into his arms. Everything about the relationship seems so familiar to me. Being with someone physically and trying to find that spiritual, psychological connection. Feeling so close one minute and then have them be so disconnected with you the next. Moments of tenderness giving you false hope for the future - believing that there's something truly special between you and then moments later the two of you are lying next to each other and yet infinitely miles apart. Going from being lovers to complete strangers. The shift between tender highs and painful lows was fast and cut like a knife. I've never known how to articulate some of the feelings I had about being in that situation, but Judy has done that in this book so accurately, it's like reading about myself sometimes. Anyone who has experienced this, who is curious or obsessed with Jim Morrison, who was or wishes they had been around in the 60's or, indeed, anyone who just wants to read a damn fine book - this is for you. I loved it.

    For the love of Jim When the singer of a rock band steps into the spotlight, our imaginations are lit, men idolize and see the singer as a reflection of themselves and woman see themselves falling in love with him. So what happens when you cross the line from fantasy to reality? Judy Huddleston’s new book Love Him Madly answers that question and it doesn’t live up to the fantasy we all want it to be. Love Him Madly counterpoints Huddlston’s relationship with Jim Morrison and time she spent in 1974 For the love of Jim When the singer of a rock band steps into the spotlight, our imaginations are lit, men idolize and see the singer as a reflection of themselves and woman see themselves falling in love with him. So what happens when you cross the line from fantasy to reality? Judy Huddleston’s new book Love Him Madly answers that question and it doesn’t live up to the fantasy we all want it to be. Love Him Madly counterpoints Huddlston’s relationship with Jim Morrison and time she spent in 1974 in a mental health facility. Huddleston met Morrison early in The Doors career and soon became infatuated with him. She saw herself and Morrison getting married while Morrison seemed intent on using her and calling her at his convenience, at first. Love Him Madly shows an evolution, although it may not have been a healthy one, and their relationship did go beyond just Morrison’s needs because Morrison wasn’t above playing whatever card he thought would get her to let him in the door or get her into bed. Love Him Madly also shows the array of emotions, insecurities and fears that drove Morrison to call her. It’s obvious the two were looking for two different things from the relationship. Morrison more of the Rock ‘n’ Roll love ‘em and leave ‘em, or a girl in every port mentality, while Huddleston was seeking true love on a romantic, idealistic model that would end in marriage and living happily ever after with Morrison, although every indicator pointed to that not happening. Huddleston’s prose has the stark beauty of Baudelaire’s poetry, as she unravels some ugly truths. Or, it could be a chapter out of a John Rechy novel (who provided a blurb for the book), or ironically enough, from a Doors song. Love Him Madly does show Huddleston’s growth and coming to terms with her relationship with Morrison and what it meant. There are still plenty of women out there that imagine themselves as having a relationship with Jim Morrison. Love Him Madly sheds some light into what a relationship with a rock icon such as Jim Morrison was actually like.

    It's amazing what Huddleston let Morrison do to her. This is a story about whose self-esteem is lower. Morrison's status as a 'Rock God' allowed him to do whatever he pleased. Meanwhile, Huddleston did not have enough in her to recognize the misery she was being put through. In the end I salute Judy Heddleston for publishing her memories. Morrison's brilliance and mad man tactics are highlighed in the book! It's amazing what Huddleston let Morrison do to her. This is a story about whose self-esteem is lower.

    I was pleasantly surprised by the writing of, what I thought would be a torrid lustful account of the author's affair with Jim Morrison. Instead, I found her style eloquent and self-effacing. She hit the nail on the head in describing the obsessive wanting and inevitable torment of a young woman desiring a man she never could have. I've been there myself which might be why this was such a pleasure, and heartache to read.

    Upon reaching the end of this book, I felt as if I had missed something important. I don't think I missed anything overt, but I wondered if maybe I had more life experience or...something, maybe it all would have clicked. Still an interesting read. I did have to skip several parts involving explicit sex, and just as a warning I'll mention that the topic of r*pe comes up and the issue is not well resolved. Jim Morrison was a talented musician, but he was not a very nice man. Upon reaching the end of this book, I felt as if I had missed something important.

    Not sure why I read this book but I stuck with it to "the end." I had mistaken the title that it was a book about the loves of Jim Morrison. In actuality it turned out to be of one woman's take on that, Judy Huddleston. Maybe not the worst book I have ever read but pretty close. It pretty much boiled down to her hook ups with Jim when he chose and her fascinating that he actually was in love with her.

    Snapshots of the author's encounters with Morrison between 1967-1970, detailed in the emotional language of a teen obsessed with an unobtainable relationship with the rock star. All the excesses of Morrison are included, including behavior fitting a borderline personality. A shorter version might have been more readable.

    She's not a bad writer. I just don't know if it's believable or not. Is it a work of total fiction? How would I know , how would anyone know? Because anyone could write a total scenario of the past that is just fiction. Perhaps this book is just pure crap. Is there some truth to it? Who the fook knows? She's not a bad writer.

    I read a while ago and again a few weeks ago. This is really more about Judy then Jim, her codependency and fragile teeen age psyche. But we wouldn’t be reading about her if she had not been sleeping with a famous rock star. Would we? That said, she has her moments of good prose and creates a consistent mood throughout the book of dread, pain, and anxiety about him, and being with Jim. Those are the feelings she conveyed of being with Jim. I never once thought they had fun together. He was seemin I read a while ago and again a few weeks ago.

Their conversations seemed strained and she often came across very snotty and cross with him. I don’t think she enjoyed being together except maybe it brought her status. He rarely took her out. It’s hard to know where her diary left off and where her older self began. I don’t think their relationship was healthy for her, it was sad all the way through. They were not authentic with each other, and both were so guarded with each other. I wish there was a more developed post reflection on the experience and how it impacted her, and how she grew from it.

    Interesting memoir of Jim Morrison I do like this book . I read it & I think the Author who wrote this book did a great job giving her details about those experiences with her rockstar Jim Morrison . I actually read the whole book in one shot which i do enjoy! A fan encounters a rockstar that their relationship lasted four years until he died . Amazing!

    Judy and jim This is a book about the author, Judy. She had a lover affair with Jim Morrrison, singer of the doors. They had this on again, off again affair for about 4 years. She tells you all about her life through this time. I liked the book because it showed a different side of Jim. Not always so high and drunk. It is sad of course because we all know the end.

The writing is vivid and often explicit. Based on Judy Huddleston's journals we've a sketch that will elicit every emotion from the reader. I guarantee that..... As another reviewer noted: with the voice of a rebellious teenager with tortured devotion, "It's a tale of sex, obsession, misplaced spirituality, and an unforgettable fall from innocence." Sue William Silverman says: "Jim Morrison's life is well documented but Love Him Madly delves into the profound personal cost of standing too close to such an incandescent and unpredictable flame." ----------- I can't begin to portray the intensity of Judy's story. I just don't have the words. You'll experience that intensity in your reading.

    I'll start by saying WOW! From the very first sentence Judy Huddleston engages her reader in a poignant story line. I found myself right there beside Judy as she tried to get Jim to notice her. Although Judy happens to be infatuated with Jim Morrison, and I'll admit I was curious too, I don't believe this story really was about Jim. It was about Judy. On a larger scale, perhaps it's about all of us and our ever-ending quest to know, do you see me? Do I matter? Love Him Madly is an intense roller- I'll start by saying WOW!

If you've ever wanted something so desperately you couldn't think of anything else, if you've ever loved so obsessively it made you sick, if you've ever ached so deeply the only cure is the poison which made you sick in the first place, you are going to love this book. I know I did!

    It was interesting to read from Huddleston's feminist hindsight. I also liked it when she described him as being "a permanent emergency." I dunno, he was kind of a giant drama queen...pretty accurate descriptive there. Did I mention that I'm sort of embarrassed that I actually read this? Welp. I am. Not the first time I've been embarrassed that I read something, won't be the last...put another notch in that belt. It was interesting to read from Huddleston's feminist hindsight.

    Love Him Madly describes in beautiful, intimate detail the inner turmoil of a young woman trying to find meaning in her life--something many of us can identify with. I wasn't actually interested in Jim Morrison so much as her story of love and addiction. I found this book hard to put down as the author unraveled the memories of a codependent love affair that pushed her to the edge--and over. I hope one day she writes more about the young life that lead to her insecurity and obsession.

    Осилила воспоминания одной из "группис" Джима Моррисона. Честно говоря, боялась что будет очередная дешевка в духе "50 оттенков серого", но с элементами рок-н-ролла. На удивление, оказалась довольно не плохо написано, и, по большей частью, создается ощущение, что все-таки честно. А самое удивительное: все было именно так, как я и думала.
