Fiction. Literature. Humor (Fiction.) HTML:

Marine biologist Nate Quinn is in love with the majestic ocean-dwelling behemoths who have been singing their haunting song for twenty million years. But why do the humpback whales sing? That's the question that has Nate and his crew filming, charting, and recording every whale that crosses their path. Until one day when a whale lifts its tail to display a message spelled out in foot-high letters: Bite Me....

No one has ever seen such a thing; not Nate's longtime partner, not world-renowned photographer Clay Demodocus, not their saucy young research assistant, Amy, not even spliff-puffing white-boy Rastaman, Kona. And when the film returns from the lab missing the crucial tail shot??and their research facility is trashed??Nate realizes that something very fishy is going on.

It only gets weirder when a call comes in from Nate's big-bucks benefactor, saying that a whale has phoned her, asking for a hot pastrami and Swiss on rye. Suddenly the answer to the question that has driven Nate throughout his adult life is within reach. And it's not what anyone would think… (mere)

He has written a number of excellent books including Expecting Someone Taller, and Flying Dutch, but they may be difficult to find at your library or bookstore.… (mere)

A fun sci-fi/comedy romp about scientists who study whales in Hawaii and the nature of life itself. Grand ambitions by Moore in this one and he pulls them off brilliantly.

So the first time I read, a long long time ago, I didn't like it. But a Friends husband was seriously confused why I didn't like it, so I thought I would give it a second shot when I found a copy in a thrift store.

And.... the husband is right. It is a great book. Funny, witty, and intelligent. Christopher Moore did his research. Characters a written fully, complete with faults. My only real criticism is the ending... everything is resolved, but it seems too fast. ( )

"Fluke" by Christopher Moore was part "Lost Horizon" and part Carl Hiaasen. But, it was about whales. I was treated to whalesong between chapters because I listened to the book. I did trip the light fantastic because it came from the mind of Christopher Moore, and it was delightful. I highly recommend this book to lighten your mood. ( )

Okay, yes, it's probably not as good, not as funny, not as enticing as other of his novels. But I love his style, okay?? And moreover, I think the plot was really fun, really inventive, really original, and I'm really, really into it. Not in a "i need more right now immediately" kind of way, because I think it ended nicely. But in a "that was amazing and I'm glad I now know of this universe" kind of sense.

I love Christopher Moore. I love him. Fight me. ( )

The beginning was fun and fairly typical of Moore. The end was just dumb. ( )
