    Just why do humpback whales sing? That's the question that has marine biologist Nate Quinn and his crew poking, charting, recording and photographing very big, wet, gray marine mammals. That is, 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 saw a thing- not his longtime partner, Clay Demodocus; not their saucy young ...

Christopher Moore at his best - just close enough to reality to imagine it could be true. Moore is a master of humor and his imagination is beyond compare.

Always a Wild Tail (pun intended)

by tall66 on Oct 22, 2009

Christopher Moore's style of writing is fun, a little weird, and always entertaining. Fluke is all of this and more with a number of twist and turns that are totally unexpected, which for me, made this a great read. This book is sure to leave a smile when you are done

more and more moore!!!

by RozHerk on May 26, 2007

another great book by christopher moore! ever wonder why the humpback whale sings? didnt even know humpback whales did that? for answers to questions you didn't even know you had, you have to read this book! in another literary giggle-fest, chris moore blends science and imagination into a story of love, whales, and Goo. Follow the adventures of Nathan Quinn as he learns why whales like pastrami sandwiches; the dangers of a prehensile penis (just ask Nathan's ex-wife); and most importantly: WHY THE WINGED WHALE SINGS!!! sound interesting? you gotta read it to believe it... you gotta have this book!
