      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 ab [...]

      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. The language doesn't merely pro [...]

      For the love of JimWhen 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 i [...]

      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 [...]

      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!

      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.

      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.

      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.

      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- [...]

      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 queenetty 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 lastput another notch in that belt.

      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 честн [...]
