By Christopher Moore
Just why do humpback whales sing? That's the query that has marine behavioral biologist Nate Quinn and his team poking, charting, recording, and photographing very monstrous, rainy, grey marine mammals. until eventually the intense day while a whale lifts its tail into the air to demonstrate a cryptic message spelled out in foot-high letters: chunk me.
Trouble is, Nate's starting to ponder whether he hasn't spent a little bit an excessive amount of time within the sunlight. 'Cause not anyone else on his crew observed a specific thing -- now not his longtime companion, Clay Demodocus; no longer their saucy younger learn assistant; now not even the spliff-puffing white-boy Rastaman Kona (né Preston Applebaum). yet later, whilst a roll of movie returns from the lab lacking the the most important tail shot -- and his learn facility is trashed -- Nate realizes whatever very fishy certainly goes on.
By turns witty, irreverent, interesting, confusing, and superb, Fluke is Christopher Moore at his outrageous best.

Isn’t fascinating how they use science when it’s for their benefit, but reject it once they feel like it interferes with their faith? One minute science is brilliant; the next minute science is garbage. Creationists have such a problem with the Theory of Evolution in particular because it is the only scientific theory that would directly disprove their religious beliefs. You don’t hear many (or any) creationists arguing against germ theory, atomic theory, or cell theory because none of those theories interfere with their personal religious faiths.
