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.

Weird and Interesting...also slightly creepy
October 30th, 2014
I've read a few of Christopher Moore's novels and I like his quirky style and odd subject matter, it's very creative...but this time around it was just a little too out there for me. I was grossed out a lot which isn't really what I was looking for in a book. I'll never look at whales the same way again.

Great quirky read

Fluke is a wonderful read that will make you fall in love with whales and Christopher Moore at the same time. The story is quirky, brilliantly delivered, and will leave you smiling. As with all of Moore's books, I was pretty sleep deprived for the few days it took me to finish reading. Some books are just too good to put down.

I love the reference to Vancouver. Very odd book. Hard to call what will happen next because it is so off the wall.
