it was ok
Read in October, 2010

I'm not usually interested in mystery novels, but this one was recommended by a friend at work, so I decided to give it a shot. The plot follows a detective who is suffering from total amnesia, the result of a carriage accident. The self-assessment throughout the book – should I know this person? why does so-and-so seem to dislike me? was I a callous jerk in my previous life? – gets rather old.

Monk is attempting to track down a murderer, without the benefit of any memories from before his accident. The hunt is entertaining, and follows a much more logical path than I think was standard at the time.

I can't say I didn't like the book. I actually don't really have any feelings on it at all. I don't think I'll bother borrowing the rest of the series.
