    One thought on “Mr. Monk in Outer Space

    1. Crushi

      Purely for my entertainment. I believe I get much more out of these books and the Monk character than others. These are my versions of trashy CSI-type thrillers or best sellers.I love the characters, the plots, the humor, and the OCD problems Monk has. I'm pretty sure some are overly magnified for comedy but some of them aren't and are very revealing as to real OCD fears and problems.Since nobody ever reads these reviews I can admit that it took a while for me to get the nerve up to watch the fi [...]

      When a fast food chain executive is shot three times in his office by a professional hit man, Captain Leland Stottlemeyer of the SFPD calls former partner turned private investigator Adrian Monk. Along with his lovely assistant, Natalie Teeger, Monk arrives on the scene (after outsmarting a revolving door) and reveals that the victim's death had been caused by a heart attack. In other words, the corpse had been desecreated. This prompts Stottlemeyer's current partner, the quirky and sometimes di [...]

    3. Krista

      Actual rating: 3.5.Not my favorite Mr. Monk book I've read so far, but a good read with a plot that keeps you guessing. I wasn't able to guess 'whodunit' until almost the very end, mostly because I watch a LOT of mystery shows and can pick up on clues easily enough but definitely enough twists and turns in the story to keep you interested, with a little ironic humor - as is true to Monk's style - throughout. Reading this makes me miss the show. = )I recommend this book for the Monk TV show lover [...]

    4. Karine

      Very funny and entertaining. I enjoy the Mr. Monk books even more than the TV series since they allow for more complicated plots, a greater number of cleverly solved murders, and more elaborate settings. This book is particularly amusing for fans of Star Trek and Battlestar Gallactica and the like. The parody of a sci fi tv show, characters, convention, and fans is hilarious. I loved the "Beyond Earth"-iverse.

    5. Vanessa

      I'm not a huge fan of the sci-fi theme in this book, but I still enjoyed it. I loved that Monk's brother, Ambrose, was part of the story.

    6. Zachary Smith

      A good book This book is told from the point of view of his assistant, Natalie - and that's great, it keeps the story moving.Monk's point of view, after all, is flawed.Still, Natalie is the show's straight-man.Whenever she's alone, or getting too introspective the book gets a little lackluster.Even so, I'd recommend Lee Goldberg to anyone. He has a real flair for character.

    7. Cherri

      I listened to this in the car. It was an enjoyable whodunnit but I got tired of Monk's OCD making things ridiculous which was much worse than it had been in the TV show. I loved the TV show but they took it further in this book.

    8. Ben Steiner

      I would recommend this for any fans of the Monk TV show, I want to read the rest of the series now. Even if you haven't seen the show the books are worth reading.

    9. Kevin Magpoc

      I should first mention that I did not read this book with my eyes but listened to the audio book as read by Angela Brazil. I figure hearing a fiction book read affects the listener's perception of the characters, especially that of a narrator's reading of characters I've previously heard portrayed by other actors on the original TV series. There doesn't seem to be much thought into imitating the original actors (not that there's any reason why she should have to), in fact, the parts aren't acted [...]

    10. Ken Heard

      This is the third of the Monk books I've read and, while not the best so far, Lee Goldberg's book is entertaining and easy. Written in the POV of Monk's assistant, the story focuses on the death of the creator of a Star Trek-like television show at a convention. Goldberg pokes fun at the mania behind the Earthers, (or is it Earthies) ala Trekkies. Monk's OCD issues come through yet again. They are both funny and, at times, somewhat shocking in the insensitivity Monk shows. For instance, when tal [...]

    11. Colin

      This a fun,undemanding read.I loved the tv show and have dipped in and out of these novels from time to time.It is very much in the style of the tv show,my only misgiving is that Monk's phobias are much more overplayed in the novels and can get a little tiresome.This also takes a gentle swipe at the sci-fi,Star Trekky type convention circuit ans is very funny.If you liked the show ansd want more adventures from Adrian Monk,this is for you.It is a gift,it is a curse!

    12. Courtney Mosier Warren

      A very entertaining and light read. I bought this because I had a 6.5 hour train ride and I wanted something fun and easy to read that I could potentially finish in one sitting. It was a fun story and had all the charms of the TV show. While it was not great literature or anything, it was good entertainment during a long trip.

    13. Fajar Partomo

      Novel ini merupakan novl dengan tema kriminalitas, menceritakan kisah seorang Detektif, Adrian Monk, yang bekerja sebagai tenaga ahli di kepolisian. Tiga kisah pembunuhan yang rumit, mampu dipecahkan oleh Monk dengan analisis yang detil, tak terpikirkan oleh orang lain, dan cerdas. Cerita mengalir diselingi dengan humor, drama, dan tentu saja konflik yang digambarkan mampu menjadi nilai lebih. Tokoh Monk sendiri cenderung perfeksionis, kurang pergaulan, dan aneh namun cerdas dan pengamatannya ce [...]

      This is a funny book. I liked the monk the TV series and book is equally good. Monk is a obsessive compulsive detective who goes into depression when is wife is killed by a car bomb. He is thrown out of police force as he was unable to function after that. But as he is brilliant homicide detective, he is appointed consultant to SFPD. Monk is portrayed as Sherlock but he works backwards. He first choose the culprit and then finds clues to implicate him. So he is no Sherlock after all.Some excerpt [...]

    15. Rose

      I started this book twice before and each time got stalled before the first hundred pages. I don't know why -- there's nothing "slow" about the Monk books, and there was no reason for me to keep putting the book down just as things were getting good -- but the third time seemed to be the charm. Go figure.This book had a lot of wonderful bonuses to it, above and beyond the normal delights of the "Monk" series -- gentle Star Trek satire, the addition of Monk's brother Ambrose, and some wonderful s [...]

    16. Simbahenom

      sungguh tak terbayang jika harus berhadapan dengan orang seperti monk ini, mungkin akan stres dan ngamuk-ngamuk ga jelas. syukurlah monk hanyalah khayalan. sungguh takjub akan imajinasi penulis menghadirkan sosok karakter yang benar-benar menyebalkan seperti ini, jauh dari tataran watak yang bisa diterima masyarakat. dan takjub lagi, masih ada orang yang bisa berinteraksi dengan orang seperti monk, walau tetap dengan kesabaran tinggingkin karena ini buku terjemahan, entah mengapa saya kurang bis [...]

      buku ini cover na orange tapi sayang gambar na orang. sudah berpikir untuk tidak melanjutkan membaca na tapi karena bulan ini tema bacaan rhe adalah cerita detektif dan petualangan, maka jadilah lanjut membaca nayang membaca ini setelah baca holmes. mungkin jika urutan na dibalik hasil na akan berbeda. terbiasa dengan alur holmes yang cepat dan rasional -bukan bearti monk- tidak rasional- membaca buku ini berasa pengen ngelempar monk. gokil? ntah apa definisi kata itu karena rhe ga merasakan nam [...]

      I had a harder time keeping up with the characters in this story. Of course, I was listening to the CDs at bed time, so that could have had a lot to do with my hard time following the story. It was funny. Monk wouldn't go through a revolving door to get into a building where a murder was committed. He wouldn't take the elevator, and wanted the body moved to an even numbered floor. Monk's brother, Ambrose helps solve this murder. Monk moved in with his brother, while new carpeting was laid at his [...]

      There's a murder and a thousand suspects! A famed sci-fi show creator is dead and the killer caught on tape was seen retreating to a sci-fi convention nearby where the deceased would have appeared as a special guest. Who would kill a man that created such a beloved series? It turns out that the attendees are mad at a controversy that happened involving his show. Could that be a motive? Or is something more complicated afoot?This book is great and an improvement over the other Monk book I read ca [...]

    20. C. John Kerry

      An interesting book. I admit I have never watched the Monk television show and this book is not likely to get to watch it. At the same time as a mystery novel is was quite good. We have four murders which may or may not be connected. In two of the cases the murderer has been picked up by security cameras and is clearly identifiable. However he is in costume as the alien crew member of an old SF show complete with trunk for a nose, among other things. In fact part of the story takes place at a co [...]

      Tipe manusia ternyata macam-macam. Ada yang bersikap masa bodoh terhadap sekitar, ia tidak taku apa yang terjadi disekelilingnya. Namun ada juga orang yang sengat jeli memperhatikan sekelilingnya. Satu perubahan kecil saja sudah bisa mengungkapkan banyak hal. Contohnya Adrian Monk.Seluruh jajaran kepolisian di LA mengakui kecerdasan serta ketajaman analisanya, walau dilakukan dengan perasaan enggan. Namun bagi asistennya, Natalie, sifat keteraturan dan obsesinya pada kesempurnaan kadang tidak bi [...]

    22. Kent

      This was the fifth Monk book I have read.The title is misleading. I was thinking somehow Monk would actually make it to outer space. And the cover art indicates Monk ends up in a hazmat suit. Neither happen. Instead Monk is called on to investigate the death of the creator of a cult-classic TV program Beyond Earth (think Star Trek). He finally connects all his dots to figure out which "earther" (trekie) was the killer.I didn't think this book was as funny or clever as the others. And I am especi [...]

    23. Michelle

      The mysteries were good although I was not a big fan of the parody science fiction theme in this one. Still, I liked it for the characters development of the Monks, Natalie, Stottlemeyer and Disher. Ambrose being helpful and helped Monk solving his cases were always enjoyable to me as Monk often criticized Ambrose for his agrophobia and the latter more often than not proved himself to be more capable of taking care of himself to Monk and everyone else.“It wasn’t thrilling bubble-bath reading [...]

    24. Elizabeth

      First of all who puts only 29 chapters in a Monk book???? There needs to be one more chapter to make it an even 30!!! Anyway, it was pretty good. I did not like Natalie having a "friend-with-benefits." I know she is an adult and all, but it just doesn't seem to fit with the Monk atmosphere. Maybe I'm just naive. The Beyond Earth part of the book was interesting because it allowed Ambrose to show some true colors and allowed Monk to show that he can empathize with other people. The butterfly on t [...]

    25. Dewiyani

      Kali ini Mr. Monk harus mengungkap tiga pembunuhan sekaligus yang terjadi dalam waktu hampir berdekatan. Brandon Lorber, pemilik Burgerville. Conrad Stipe, pencipta serial fiksi televisi berjudul Beyond Earth. Dan seorang supir taksi. Terjemahannya jauh lebih baik ketimbang Mr. Goes to Firehouse yg sebelumnya saya baca, sayang ada beberapa typo yg sedikit mengganggu. Saya juga menyayangkan perubahan judul yang dibuat :(Bagaimanapun juga karena saya sangat menyukai Mr. Monk saya tidak bisa obyekt [...]

    26. Grace Jensen

      If you love the show, then you will love the book. Nothing new going on here. While I did enjoy the novelty of Monk on T.V it was only a few episodes before the hokeyness wore on me.This is something that carried over from the series. It was simple, trite characteristics in everyone, except for Monk. And I don't know if it was just because it's on paper, but it somehow manged to make fun of that level of O.C.D. in a way that made me feel offended for people with mental disorders. The one thing I [...]

    27. Karen

      An immensely enjoyable read that was true to the series. While those who haven't seen the show would still like it, I think, those of us who know Natalie (our narrator), Monk, Stottlemeyer and Lt. Disher will get more laughs from this lighthearted whodoneit. The creator of a beloved sci fi series with a devoted cult following (the fictional Beyond Earth, clearly modeled on Star Trek) is gunned down and Monk must solve the case. But where can he find someone who knows the way of the "Earthers" (a [...]

      Mr. Monk investigates the death of the creator of the Beyond Earth sci-fi show. He's horrified by what he sees at a convention - people wearing alien prosthetics and grunting in strange tongues - and worse, thirty-year old cereal! Monk's agoraphobic brother Ambrose features in this book - he's an Earther, as Monk is displeased to find out. He's written several books on the series. Monk's relationship with his brother undergoes some growth in the process of them working together. Natalie narrates [...]
