I know I’m a bit behind on this one, but with the recent death of Mick Farren (July 2013) brought his book Jim Morrison’s Adventures in the Afterlife back to my attention. I discovered a funny entertaining story that you can never tell which way it’s going to turn.
It won’t do any good to give a synopsis of the plot because it might seem ridiculous upon description, and anyway, it would pale compared to the writing. However, if you’re looking for some guideposts to Jim Morrison’s Adventures in the Afterlife it’s like a surreal Huck Finn or a psychedelic Dante’s Inferno (hell has gone to capitalism!). The cast of characters in the colorful afterlife of Jim Morrison include Doc Holliday, Aimee Semple McPherson, Moses, Godzilla and Jesus.
Jim Morrison’s Adventures in the Afterlife offers no insights into Jim Morrison, it doesn’t even try (except for Farren’s belief Jim Morrison was a junkie). No insights into life or death, except possibly that death is what you make of it, you can be a god, gunslinger, monster, savior, or Jim Morrison just as long as you don’t piss off the real gods.
If Jim Morrison’s Adventures in the Afterlife were a movie it would be a popcorn movie. It’s one that can be counted on to give you a couple pleasant afternoons of carefree reading.
Jim Morrison's Adventure's in the Afterlife is available on Amazon.
