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.

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