Fluke Christopher Moore read online review & book description:

Just why do humpback whales sing? That's the question that has marine behavioral biologist Nate Quinn and his crew poking, charting, recording, and photographing very big, wet, gray marine mammals. Until the extraordinary day when a whale lifts its tail into the air to display a cryptic message spelled out in foot-high letters: Bite me.

Trouble is, Nate's beginning to wonder if he hasn't spent just a little too much time in the sun. 'Cause no one else on his team saw a thing -- not his longtime partner, Clay Demodocus; not their saucy young research assistant; not even the spliff-puffing white-boy Rastaman Kona (né Preston Applebaum). But later, when a roll of film returns from the lab missing the crucial tail shot -- and his research facility is trashed -- Nate realizes something very fishy indeed is going on.

By turns witty, irreverent, fascinating, puzzling, and surprising, Fluke is Christopher Moore at his outrageous best.

  • Great read. Totally not what I expected.

    As a casual reader, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was an easy read and a fun escape. While it took a little bit to get going, I dove deep once the climax hit. I've been telling everyone about it!

    Having just finished Fluke, and having read several other of his books, i am pleased beyond words that i started reading him a few years ago. To me, he is first a story teller. This alone makes his work a joyous experience. He is also a writer who in his joy of subject, elucidates, educates and inspires. His humor is contagious, intelligent and whimsical. When i am engrossed in one of his lyrical journeys, i find his characters full and rich, his research compelling, his world view twisted and magical. Upon finishing every Christopher Moore I have been driven by one simple thought. Get me another one!

    This, and Moore's book "Lamb" are two of the funniest books I've ever read

    I loved just about every sentence in this book. Made myself very obnoxious by reading to my friends LOL passages. Even with little context as setup, I'd have them cracking up with the genius and humor of the writing. this is going to be in a lot of Christmas packages from me this year. Surprise ending: even the afterword was spectacular! Save the whales, mon!
  • A great book

    This book starts off funny and will keep you laughing until you turn the last page. This book was impossible to put down and is second only to Moore's greatest book, Lamb.
