I've rarely read a book that made me laugh out loud, but this one did...over and over and over again. The juxtaposition of anachronistic characters onto surreal settings with a fine undertext of spirituality made for a quick, interesting read that kept me laughing and ultimately startled me by cappnig entertainment with thoughtful statement. From the moment Jim Morrison rides a boat with Doc Holliday through the gates of Hell to hire Virgil as a guide through the brothels and casinos of the commercialized fire and brimstone, I knew this was a book I'd always remember and have to read over and over.

Being a little too young to be a true Morrison fan, I came across this book by a friendly recommendation. One word - Fabulous. The idea of Jim morrison hanging out with Doc Holiday in Hell while a sexy Dominatrix watches porn inside Godzilla's brain with Jesus and a goat is more than simple "light-reading". (The hardcover is a nice conversation piece on your coffee table as well.) I highly recommend this book to anyone who can truly take a joke.
I just wonder what form of chemistry author Farren studied in school.....

Despite the title this book is about a rather Hell-ish Afterworld, not Jim Morrison. The Door's aficionado looking for a book about Jim Morrison will need to look elsewhere.
This amusing and very readable book has A LOT in common with the Riverworld Saga by Philip Jose Farmer which began with the Sci-Fi novel: "To Your Scattered Bodies Go" , written sveral decades ago. Or early Vonnegut (especially Slaughter House 5).
Don't expect deep ruminations of cosmic signifigance. This is a book filled with sarcastic wit, a complex plot, a sense of humor. It isn't about Morrison, or Doc Holiday or Aimee Semple McPherson. (However ASMcP's doppleganger "Semple" is one of the more amusing characters I have encountered in American fiction in the last 20 years.
If you were able to read "The Hitchhiker's guide to The Universe", or any Vonnegaut novel, you may enjoy this novel. The humor is certainly a notch above watching re-runs of Seinfeld.
It is a light-weight novel.. a great summer read. You'll score no points with the literati, but it worth reading. ESPECIALLY if it leads you back to the PJ Farmer "Riverworld" saga.
You don't need to be a SF buff to enjoy this book.

"Abandon All Hope, Ye Who Enter Here", displayed above the entrance to Hell, might be a good subtitle for this book. It was richly entertaining, but don't open it up expecting any deep meditations on redemption, the nature of the soul, suicide by stardom, or any of the subjects Morrison himself might have written on. No, this is just good, clean fantasy, a romp through the Afterlife, with Sex, Drugs, and a Rock 'n' Roll attitude. If you don't like this kind of wild fantasy, don't start, because this is a *long* book, one that demands a hefty suspension of disbelief and a good commitment of time.
