Thoughtful, irreverent, and often hilarious, Moore has crafted a tale that contains a bit of the saga of declining whale populations due to hunting and habitat destruction, as well as his over-the-top, decadent wit as applied to scientific methodology and professional jealousies. Moore notes a pasty, rival scientist "looked like Death out for his after-dinner stroll before a busy night of e-mailing heart attacks and tumors to a few million lucky winners," and that killer whales (which are all named Kevin), are "just four tons of doofus dressed up like a police car." Smart, sincere, and a whale of a story, Fluke is terrific. --Michael Ferch --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
This book is a quick, fun read that will leave you laughing out loud at times.
The plot overall is as crazy and unexpected as you would expect from Moore, but seems to drag a little toward the end.
When you read the book you really feel like you know the characters and you'll learn some nifty facts about whales.
Certainly an original story worth a lot of promise. I would have liked to see stronger character development. Read morePublished 4 days ago by Chad Stewart

This another "stand alone" book by Christopher Moore. His books are books that can be read over and over, and you most times you find something new. Read morePublished 4 months ago by The Old Man "Steve", Nampa, Id.
