This was not one of the funniest Monk books out there, but it is Monk so anyone that knows the character, has been a fan of the show throughout all the seasons knows that Monk is hilarious. In some parts it dragged and some of his 'issues' were overdone, but the airplane ride and lead up to it was so funny - think one armed therapist and one legged neighbor! I was a little bummed to have the storyline of him thinking the worse in his faithful and loyal longtime therapist Dr. Kroger though - glad it didn't last long. This book is worth the read because simply -- it is Monk!!

The show may be ending, but at least we'll have the books! Although I don't think ALL of the Monk books were equally fantastic.....this one was laugh out loud wonderful. How Goldberg gets in Natalie's head and understands her so well is amazing. And the next one, Monk is Miserable, is just as great. Make sure you read them both in private, unless you don't mind strangers staring at you. :)

If you enjoy the tv series, you will enjoy the books. They are fun and not heavy reading.

Mr. Monk's psychologist, Dr. Kroger, goes on a working vacation to Germany. Monk, naturally, is compelled to follow him. While there, he encounters another psychologist, a man with six fingers on one hand, which fits the description of the man who murdered Monk's wife, Trudy. As Monk investigates him, he becomes convinced that he is responsible for more than one murder, and must deal with the unknown elements of a foreign land and a conference of people with body deformities (Monk is particularly grating here) as he attempts to prove Dr. Rahner's guilt.

Lee Goldberg so completely captures the flavour of the television shows and uses the novel form to explore aspects that are not possible in a one-hour show. A highlight of this addition to the canon is the contrast between Monk flying one way in his ususal OCD state and the other on a personality-changing drug. Goldberg has even managed to do something credible with the search for the six-fingered man.

Duffy thought this was his least favorite of the Monk books so far. I think it is my favorite. I suppose for Duffy the reason could be that the books are, really, very formulaic. And that's true. I found this one moved along quickly and I suppose it's been so long since we've been able to see a new episode of Monk that we are all missing him and what is going on in the show. This novel wasn't really all that different from any of the others, except for the travel to Europe, which of course, I found interesting.

When Monk follows Dr. Kroger to Germany, he lands in the middle of a personal case. The first half was pretty slow, but once the main story got going, it was dynamite.

I think that the Monk tv show leaves out stuff and exaderates certain things.

I've read Mr. Monk series 1-6 an di loved them all. While this one wasn't the best thus far it is still a good and entertaining read. Monk in the woods is a classic scene.

I loved the Monk series when it was on TV and still watch the reruns quite often. I have read most of the Monk books and found them to be very much like the series! Enjoy!!!
