    One thought on “Mr. Monk and The Blue Flu”

    1. Currently, I m up to Episode 10 of Season 7 of Monk on the Netflix Instant Watch, which means I m pretty close to the end of the series How do you get Monk if eight years wasn t enough One thing that occurred to me is reading the Monk novels by Lee Goldberg or to the point, listening to the book through Audible While I could have started with the first Monk novel, Mr Monk Goes to the Firehouse, I decided to skip that one as it was adapted to a Season 5 episode and opt for a novel that had a fa [...]

    2. Let me start by saying I find Goldberg s Monk books to be a little like updated Agatha Christie s They are quick, fun mysteries that are almost always readable in a day They sweep you along, and while not too deep, they give you the clues you need to solve right along with Monk, Marple, Poirot, Tommy and Tuppence, etc This was no exception to the fun, but I found it familiar While I d like to feel good about solving the main mystery very early, I think it may have actually been a television epis [...]

    3. I don t say this often, but the tv version was better Tony Shaloub s panache is missing and focusing on Natalie s POV waters down the plot for me.

    4. Fortunately for me just about all of our children have watched the Mr Monk television series with us I mention that because the novels written by Lee Goldberg just as a side note, please go to Lee Goldberg s website and read his bio, hilarious are excellent novels for a few reasons One, they are a great read on the beach or at poolside, two, even without the show they are an excellent read by themselves, and last but not least, there are now nine in the series and they are easy to share and pass [...]

    5.

    8. This was a great book It had all the regular Monk humor I really liked how there were so many mysteries It was fun to see Monk lead a team of other nut jobs to temerarily replace the officers that were struck by the blue flue My favorite part was when I solved the murder of Officer Milner chapters before monk did.

    9. If you think the plethora of phobias plaguing detective Adrian Monk is insufferable, wait until he is reinstated to the San Francisco Police Department as acting captain of homicide When the Blue Flu strikes the SFPD, including Captain Leland Stottlemeyer and Lt Randy Disher, the mayor reinstates Monk along with three other former detectives, each with their own mental issuesd assistants Much to the chagrin of Stottlemeyer, Monk happily accepts the job of commanding the scabs , and delves into a [...]

    13. Good one This was my test read I enjoyed it Now I ll get some mr monk OOPs, have to ONLY read Lee Goldburg, his replacement writer of the TV series is not nearly as good.

    14. When a blue flu hits the San Fransisco police department during contract negotiations, Mr Monk becomes acting chief of homicide To make up for the lack of officers, some other folks who lost their badges are hired back on too Monk winds up with a defective detective squad There s a senile old man, a paranoid lady who wears a tin foil helmet, and a guy who just likes to shoot things a little too much Best of all, they each have their own assistant Natalie thinks they should form a support group T [...]

    15. Title Mr Monk and the Blue FluAuthor Lee GoldbergGenre Mystery ComedyRating 2.5 StarsFormat Book on CDI snagged this book on CD at the library because I m a fan of the Monk TV show I have to cut it some slack because a book based on a TV show isn t going to be what you d call literary art It barely qualifies as a book It s like a script for a screenplay On the one hand, the book was pretty close to the TV character brilliantly played by Tony Shalhoub However, the book character was a little ove [...]

    16. So far this is my least favorite of the Monk novelisations When the police forbidden to take strike action all go down with a case of blue flu , the Mayor gives Monk his badge and makes him captain Also recruited are a group of madcap misfits from a trigger happy cop to one who is convinced the aliens are out to get her Each has their own helper much as Monk has Natalie They make our Obsessive Compulsive Detective seem almost normal by comparison Which I guess is part of the point.I just found i [...]

    17. Monk masih selucu biasanyatapi buku ini agak2 lebih nge dragging dari biasanyaentah terjemahannya yang cenderung biasa aja, atau memang di buku ini pengarangny lagi enggak niat hahahayway, kali ini Monk mendapat jabatan sebagai kepala polisi, dan musti mengomandoi personil berupa tiga orang detektif edan satu punya masalah anger management cenderung menendang memukul menembak meledakkan hal hal yang membuatnya kesal, satu paranoid mengira dunia ini diawasi suatu organisasi pemerintah yang bekerj [...]

    18. The first ten books in the Monk novel series were written in conjunction with the TV series while it was still in production.Monk winds up temporarily being a detective again when the union decides to hold a walk out for a better contract Multiple incidents and a staff that in some cases are even worse than him give Monk major problems, but it all comes together by the last page.Lee Goldberg has done a commendable job capturing the flavor and voice s of the series The ending has a classic backdo [...]

    19. This was a funny book Monk was asked to take over the detective squad as commander after the regular officers staged a blue flu in a plan for the officers to get a better contract with the city The bad news is that makes Monk a scab, and he doesn t like the sound of that But he has his badge back So does Mad Jack a violent sociopath, paranoid schizophrenic, and a senile old man, all former offers who had also been asked to come back So they pull together to catch an astrologers killer, clear a s [...]

    20. At first I really hated this booke writing was terrible and it made Monk seem crazyhaving OCD is a mental illness, not a joke like the book portrayed itever, I started to like the story so even with the terrible writing, it wasn t all bad The author s blurb said that Lee Goldberg also wrote for the television series and I think this is his major problem what comes off as funny on television doesn t always seem the same in a book.he is probably just not a good novelist but a pretty good screenwri [...]

    21. I found it harder to get into this book because the other scab detectives were so very strange, even strange than Monk Once I did get into the book, I found it did have some humor, both in those characters and in the situation I still prefer Mr Monk Goes to Germany Mr Monk and the Blue Flu is not as funny, or morally clean, and one reason that I liked to watch the series is that it is usually fairly morally clean, one of the safer things for my eleven year old to watch on TV I would not want my [...]
