    1. 1 New York Times Bestselling author Lee Goldberg is a two time Edgar Award and two time Shamus Award nominee whose many TV writing and or producing credits include Martial Law, SeaQuest, Diagnosis Murder, Hunter, Spenser For Hire, Nero Wolfe, Missing Monk and The Glades He s also the co author of the Fox O Hare series with Janet Evanovich The Heist, The Chase, The Job, The Scam, The Pursuit etc , The Walk, Watch Me Die, King City, the Dead Man series, as well as the Diagnosis Murder and Monk series of original mystery novels.

    2. Some of Monk's behaviors really irritated me in this especially his refusal to accept the differences between Lohr and San Francisco as well as his treatment towards people with physical anomalies. In addition, him stalking Dr. Kroger to Germany was a little far-fetched even for Monk. He followed Natalie was understandable because she was his assistant and she did not do a good job in breaking the news to him but I remember an episode in the show where Dr. Kroger went on vacation and Monk did qu [...]

    3. Monk finds out his shrink is going away for a week and determines to keep his appointments anyway. He and Natalie follow Monk to Germany where Monk finds the 6 fingered man. Is it the man that killed his beloved wife Trudy? Read it and find out. I enjoyed this book very much as it has the usual monkness going on with some really quick dialogue and a good plot. A very quick read for a change of pace to more suspenseful thrillers.

    4. I loved the Monk TV series and I generally like mystery novels, but this book is an insult to both. It's safe to say it never would have been published, and certainly wouldn't have the rating it does on this site, if it wasn't riding on the coat tails of the TV series' popularity. The writing style is artless and extremely simplistic. The story is poorly crafted and contrived. The main story doesn't start till around halfway through the book and much of it feels like a regurgitation of the autho [...]

    5. This is the fourth Monk book I've read this year and either I'm beginning to burn out on the series or the tales are becoming repetitious. The premise of Germany is a good one, but it is flawed. Monk flies to Germany with Natalie to chase down his therapist and while there finds what he thinks is evidence in the slaying of his wife. Fans of the show know Monk lost his job as a San Francisco detective because he was grieving her loss.So the premise is intriguing. Instead, we get unlikeable charac [...]

    6. Just not as cute and fun as other Monk books. And this one does not capture the sweetness of the TV show and characters.Monk's paranoia and comments about people with physical deformities was cruel and rude and not very amusing.There wasn't much unique about this story, (view spoiler)[ "The Monk" reprised his persona on medication as "The Monkster," as Monk trailed Dr. Kroger to Germany, like Monk stalked Natalie on vacation in Hawaii, and Monk obsessively pursued a man with 6 fingers on one han [...]

    7. Fans of the TV series will enjoy all the Monk books. The characters take on a slightly different personality in the books than they do in the show, however. Mr. Monk seems a little less human and Natalie seems a little more edgy. The books also have more objectionable elements than the shows do, which was disappointing to me, especially since they rarely have any bearing on the story. At times I find the characters acting in ways that do not seem in harmony with the personalities we have come to [...]

    8. Mr. Monk's therapist has gone to Germany for a conference and Monk cannot manage without him. So Mr. Monk and Natalie head to Germany for his regular appointment. Of course, it's not long before Monk is drawn into a murder mystery.I didn't care for the book as much as I did the TV series.

    9. Story is so-so. It read like a script not a story. After somebody said something the author wrote "monk said, or I said." over and over and over. It became annoying and tiring to read. It felt like I was reading a third grade book. I won't be reading anymore I said.

    10. If you enjoyed the series on television then you'll like Lee Goldberg's Monk novels. In fact, I'd bump this up to four stars if you are a fan of the show. Even if you haven't watched the series this is still a solid read.

    11. I liked this book but I wish there were more places in Germany he went to. I would have liked more descriptions of towns, food, etc. Action took place mostly in one town.

    12. I'd been looking forward to this book for ages because it promised the apparent appearance of one of the people involved in the murder of Monk's wife -- a man with six fingers on his right hand. At the time the book came out it, had been a couple of years since the show had had any developments on that front. Granted, I didn't expect the book to _actually_ further the mystery -- Goldberg works hard to keep the books fitting to canon, but the books still _aren't_ canon, and I knew he couldn't act [...]

    13. I really enjoyed this book. It was a lot like an episode, which is really the point of the novels, I think! They are written by Lee Goldberg, who is actually a writer on the show, so I wouldn't expect anything less.The story was a good one. Dr. Kroger goes to Germany for a conference and Monk is left totally incapacitated. He forgets how to swallow, he loses track of his blinking, he is miserable. He takes his medicine (as seen in the episode Mr. Monk Takes His Medicine and in one of the other n [...]

    14. Monk faces his biggest challenge yet. When his therapist goes on vacation to Germany Mr. Monk has to overcome the normalcy of his life by going there for his week sessions. Daily phobias aside Mr. Monk is in a foreign land where he learns he must solve a murder (and possibly one that hits home a little too much than he's expecting).This one went from good to okay at times. Sure the books are all about hyperbole and Monk's silly quirks and flaws but there were moments in the book I didn't find ve [...]

    15. I absolutely loved the series (when it was on TV) and the books could not be better. They are exactly like the show, with only one slight difference, they are told from the perspective of Mr. Monk's assistant, Natalie Teeger. In this novel, Monk and Natalie travel to Germany so Monk can keep his appointments with Dr. Kroger, much to Dr. Kroger's dismay and Natalie's delight. Before they leave we experience Monk's amazing abilities (aka, his gift and his curse) first hand and the action doesn't s [...]

    16. All in all - this isn't the greatest literary piece of the year, but it was a quick and entertaining read. If you really love the show, you can appreciate the extension of the story and the humor in it. Plot: Dr. Kroger goes to Germany for a meeting/vacation and Mr. Monk follows him there in order to keep his thrice weely appointments with his therapist. When he arrives, he spies a man with six fingers on his right hand (ties into the murder of his wife Trudy) and in his efforts to track him dow [...]

    17. "Mr Monk Goes to Germany" by Lee Goldberg is a fun mystery based on my favorite TV detective, Adrian Monk. The story is told from the point of veiw of his assistant Natalee, who has her hands full as she travels to Germany with Monk, hell bent on following his shrink Dr. Kroger to the ends of the earth if he needs to, in order to avoid missing an appointment. The fact that Monk has convinced himself his new one-legged neighbor is a sock stealing cannibal does't help matters, but it adds to the l [...]

    18. When Monk's psychiatrist, Dr. Kroger, goes to a conference in Germany, the detective falls apart. While she's initially reluctant, eventually his assistant Natalie acquiesces and accompanies him to the small town of Lohr so he can have his session. Another hilarious entry in the series, characterized perfectly in this passage. Because she knows Monk becomes uninhibited when he takes Dioxynl (he's too scared to fly otherwise), she purchases sleeping pills."I intended to spend as much of the fligh [...]

    19. Ok, Monk was -and still is- my favorite TV series. During the series finale, I cried my eyes out! (I still think that Natalie and Adrian should have started dating!) This book was amazing! It was like watching an episode of Monk. It had the many elements that made the show so fun and interesting to watch. There was a crime with interesting twists and turns that were never expected. The guy that I thought was guilty was totally innocent. There was drama. Like Monk slowly going crazy when he suspe [...]

    20. Here I am, still telling everyone I wouldn't like reading crime novels But then, MONK isn't really about crime. It's always been about Adrian Monk and his thousands of different phobias and other issues. When Lee Goldberg, one of the show's writers, started releasing MONK books I started reading them as a bonus to bridge the summer break before the next season. Now that MONK is over, it's funny to see this highly ammusing character continue in printed form. And with Tony Shaloub's hillarious por [...]

    21. Within the first few pages of the book, I could already picture the characters of Monk, Natalie, & crew having the conversations dialogued in this book. I thought, This author really has a keen insight into these characters. Then I noticed that he had written several episodes for the series. Makes perfect sense. Aside from some sloppy metaphors that didn't make too much sense (or were reaching), the writing style was enjoyable. Not at all pedantic, but not shallow either. There were more tha [...]

    22. When Monk's psychiatrist Dr. Kroger goes on vacation to attend a psychiatric conference in Germany, there's only one thing Mr. Monk can do. Fall apart! Well that, or follow him to Germany. Monk overcomes his fear of flying by taking the drug that makes him less OCD at the expense of his detective skills. While in Germany, he sees the six fingered man he's sure arranged his wife Trudy's murder. But things are not always as they seem, even when you're a brilliant detective. This book is a solid en [...]

    23. This was the first one that I've read in this series even though its the sixth one. I've watched the t.v. series for many years and always enjoyed it so when I saw there was a books series I was curious. I really liked it! I can't wait to read more of them. In this one Mr Monk goes to Germany following Dr. Kroger when he goes to a conference. As expected there end up being murders and a few mysteries. It gets very personal when he finds a six fingered man, which is connected to the murder of his [...]

    24. Even if you're not a fan of the television show, there's something appealing about these books. This is the second I've read, and it's like a minor vice, like an addiction to jelly beans. Monk, a sufferer from a variety of obsessions (in case anyone doesn't know) is upset when his psychiatrist leaves for a conference in Germany. He's upset enough to overcome his fear of flying, strange places, and strange people and follow the psychiatrist to Lohr, where he finds yet another murder, and also see [...]

    25. In this installment Goldberg has Monk follow Dr. Kroger to Germany (Natalie in tow) because he can't bear to miss his thrice weekly therapy sessions during Dr. Krogers much deserved vacation. Of course, being Monk, murder follows him. Wherever. He. Goes. It was fun to read about Monk even more out of his element than usual. I missed Stottlemeyer and Disher, but Dr. Kroger has always been a great character, and I was glad to spend more time with him.Poor Natalie really needs a vacation soon, and [...]

    26. After a long and tiring week I did finally get to finish this one. As I thought, it was "OK".I have some issues with the books, because the dialogue seems awkward at points. They're from the perspective of Natalie (Monk's assistant) and that is a little strange. Her thoughts and how they are expressed don't, for me, come across the same way that her character does in the show. Also Monk "swears" sometimes, and that is totally out of character for him. I guess it's from watching all the episodes [...]

    29. I like this TV show, when I can watch it; so when I saw this book in the library I decided to give it a try. The description sounded good too. It's written from the perspective of Monk's personal assistant - Natalie. It was quite entertaining. I figured out the second murder described in the book before everyone else in the book, including Monk. I thought it was a bit cruel what Natalie did at the end of the book, blackmailing Monk into going to France She knew Monk couldn't be held accountable [...]
