Mr. Monk Goes to the Firehouse (Mr. Monk #1)
The brand-new mystery series starring the brilliant, beloved, and slightly off-balance sleuth from the USA Network's hit show!
Monk's house is being fumigated, and he has nowhere to go. Fortunately, his assistant Natalie and her daughter are kind enough to welcome him into their home. Unfortunately, their home is not quite up to Monk's standards of cleanliness and order.

I would have rated it three stars had it not been for the fact that this is Adrian Monk we're talking about.
Really, I have only three complaints:
1. Said is dead. Lee Goldberg kept using "said" over and over again, and it drove me crazy.
2. There were a few bar scenes...bleh. That was expected. But that doesn't mean that I had to like them ...more
In this episode Monk has found termites in his building and it must be fumigated. This leads him to stay with Natalie and Julie for a few days.

The story is that since Monk's house is being fumigated, he moves in with his assistant, Natalie. When a local firehouse dog is killed, Monk investigates. He discovers there was also a fatal house fire on the same night and feels they are all tied together somehow. If only he could figure out how. So it takes digging through garbage to find out, plus making some powe ...more
This one was definitely the funniest of the 3 I've read so far - I literally laughed out loud in so many parts. This one was adapted into the episode "Mr. Monk Can't See a Thing", and now I really want that episode to come on TV so I can watch it again.
Nice way to still be able to enjoy the series.
I know that the television series is over, but I love that I'm still able to visit my favorite OCD, ultra-phobic detective, Adrian Monk.
In this book, we seen Mr. Monk, Natalie, Captain Stottlemeyer, and Lt. Disher. Monk is brought into a case of a firehouse dog that's bludgeoned to death, and ends up unearthing a conspiracy that leads to more deaths. Only Monk's brand of detective work coul ...more
The gang is all here: Monk, his assitant Natalie, Captain Stottlemeyer, Lt. Disher and others who we used to watch on television every week. Monk is irritating, brilliant and funny, as always. Since Natalie is the narrarator, we learn a bit more of what she is thinking as she accompanies her ...more
But what a journey it leads him on, with Natalie in tow as usual.
This series has fast become a firm favourite with me - first via the TV and now through Lee Goldberg's hilarious stories.
I've borrowed them from the library where I work, or rather I've requested copies of every title available in the county. They are all the large print versions, so I've made them my bedtime reading.

This did go on to become the basis of the TV episode "Mr. Monk Can't See a Thing" in the next season of the show.
Read my full review at Carstairs Considers.
Natalie and captain Stottlemeyer give strong role to to all series of Mr.Monk. I wonder the feeling of them when they were with him.
In this series, thanks to a firehouse dog!

To be honest, I listened to this because of my experience with "The Heist" which he co-authored with Janet Evanovich. I wanted to know whose voice was more prominent in that book.

Saya tau Mr.Monk pertama kali dari film serial di Star World. Sayangnya jam tayangnya sangat nggak kondusif, selalu tabrakan sama jam sekolah atau lesnya Luna.
Adrian Monk terkenal sebagai "Obsessive, Compulsive Detective"
Kejeniusannya dibarengi dengan sifat yang aneh. Monk sangat mendewakan keteraturan dan higienitas. Dia juga sangat suka dengan sesuatu yang genap.

gue suka banget buku ini
mengingatkan gue serunya baca buku misteri dan detektif
hal yang gue suka dari buku ini adalah banyak kejutan
dan meski perlu cara yang berliku, akhirnya kasusnya terpecahkan :D
karakter Mr. Monk juga unik membuat Hana sadar tiap orang yang memiliki kelebihan yang begitu hebat juga punya kelemahan
Take Monk, for instance. His antics were captured well in the narrative, but all that wonderful Monk personality vanished in the dialogue. He came off as more of a spoiled jerk. Natalie was too impatient and sarcastic, Stottlemeyer was a pushover, and Randy seemed too mature and authoritative. Also, the first-person perspective seemed ...more
