Fluke is a story about a man named Adam Fluke. He's just an average pizza delivery man in his 20's. He falls in love with a woman named Sara. It is a fun loving romantic story.... Until everything goes wrong.

Adam and Sara must travel back to Sara's hometown to revisit her past and sort find the truth surrounding issues that were haunting them both. When the conclusion is what they were hoping it wouldn't be, their relationship is in danger.

I feel like this novel was very well written. It started off as a fun, easy-going read. But, as you get further into it, it becomes more tense and issues start arising. I feel like the authors did a wonderful job with character development - something that isn't always very easy to do.

They touch on some very rough topics that unfortunately many people have experienced throughout their lives, and they handled the writing of it very well.

I really enjoyed this book; to the point where I would probably read it a second time. The characters were all great, the story was very well written, and I really enjoyed the comedy side of it mixed in with the rough topics.

It was an easy read, and well worth it.

Imagine the "average nice guy" who falls head-over-heels in love with the woman of his dreams, and he luckily has those emotions reciprocated - but is then repeatedly pulverized by his own discovery of layers of twisted truths. Adam, the protagonist in this novel, brings sentiment and interest to those who can relate to the average nice guy routine, and then captivates even further in the shocking events that arise after finding clues in his nonchalant search of his self-identity. The story mixes eerie and shady circumstances rooted upon psychological traumas causing fleeting paralysis, which beckons at one to read more. Catapulting from moments from "hmm.. wth is happening" to "holy ****, that's ****ed up," certain events provoke physiological responses to the reader including, but not limited to, dry mouth and a sensation of knots in the stomach. As the shocking storyline unfolds, the situation begs one to sympathize with Adam, and could only hope this never happens to me! The realism in sexuality driven by the love affair associates with taboo and generates itching suspense, causing one to guess at how the plot will unfold - especially by then, one could only hope for the best.

I must note that the title Fluke is perfect for this novel, as you will see why after you finish reading it. It makes complete sense. Aside from the shocking drama, if you enjoy humor in irony and awkward situations, this read is for you.

To sum it up, check it out - it's a great read =)

The book took way to long to 'beat around the bush.' We knew from the discription they met and thought they were soul mates but share a terrible secret that links 2 seemingly strangers together.

I found my self dragging thru this book to finish it just to see the big reveal. Maybe I am desensitized from reading too many f-ed up story lines. This one just don't seem that intriguing.

Also too many bowl movement descriptions. Seriously? who is interested in knowing the character's bathroom habits?

One thing to take from this book is "digging in the past might ruin your future." If they never went looking for trouble, they would still be the happiest couple in the book. Maybe some things that are too good to be true, usually is.

The title of this review describes best the effort of the authors, David Elliott and Bart Hopkins, in writing their inaugural book "Fluke." Composing a written story from first-person point of view is challenging, to say the least. I won't bore you with the basic facts of the book that are found on the Amazon website and the sampler, and I will not spoil the ending for anyone who is reading this review but has yet to read "Fluke." I will hit the major points as to why I rated the book as I did.

The plot is very intriguing and a few of Adam Fluke's twists of fate caused me to become emotionally involved, if only for short bursts. "Fluke," from the onset--as in the first two pages--lacks a notable writing style. In fact, it has no discernible writing style whatsoever, completely absent of any descripatory material, e.g. season, smells, streets, houses, and so forth. The elements containing the greatest amount of graphic description were Waffle House hash browns, bowel movements, and a particularly uncouth focus on the aftermath of an intimate moment gone wrong. "Even if I knew then what the future had in store for me, I couldn't say whether I would do anything differently" states Adam Fluke at the end of the first chapter, and that pretty sums up everything that's wrong with this book. It's all about Adam Fluke; portrayals of supporting characters, to include Sara, were shallow and pedestrian in nature.
