“Hy Conrad does a wonderful job” (Green Mountain People Review of “Mr. Monk Helps Himself”)

September 26, 2013
This is my first Monk novel I have read, and will definitely be reading more. Hy Conrad does a wonderful job of writing about all of Monks quirks. I have watched several of the Monk shows and this book would fit right in.
This book had me at page one where it describes Monks 100 phobias.
“He’s distracted by shiny objects — only in his case the objects are odd numbers and germs and dirt and a hundred major phobias. Exactly one hundred. {…} When ever a new phobia phobia pops up, he has to either eliminate one of the old ones or, more often, combine a couple.”
I would suggest this book to anyone who wants a good laugh! (Or enjoyed the Monk T.V shows).
