    Bite me I’m disappointed Crazy for whales a Moore fan and the main character’s from where I live seemed like a no brainer Well not this time I like funny crude this is the kind you catch 12 year olds snickering over A third in I gave up not due to any maiden aunt sensibilities it was justlame Click spoiler for a taste

    I have yet to read a book by Christopher Moore that I did not like that failed to entertain and enlighten and to simply be a very enjoyable good read Fluke is no exception This is the story of a couple of marine biologists who have spent decades studying humpback whales and who really just want to know why they sing From here we get taken on

    After completing Fluke I started to envision this fantasy scenario on how the novel came to beBook Publisher Thank you for coming in today Mr Moore I wanted to discuss the manuscript you sent usChristopher Moore Yes of course The Song Cycles and Migratory Habits of Whales Did you like itBP Well liking it isn't really the point It's about whal

    In late May a young curious humpback whale swam down the St Lawrence River all the way to the Montreal Old Port She was by herself exploring and frolicking jumping around in that majestic and graceful way those amazing animals do Humpback aren't fresh water whales she shouldn't have been so far down the river in the first place but

    Soooo it took me about 43 years to read this book And upon thinking for a while and discissing it with Christina for a while I've come to the conclusion that my opinion is based on a two fold rubric Can rubrics have foldsAnywayPoint 1 Character Development The character development in this book sucked balls And not in the

    People swear by this guy in a devotional sort of way I was excited to try one of his novels and frankly I’m usually a sucker for otherwise human stories with some elements of the unexplained see Tom Robbins “Magnolia” or Lost Moore’s

    I love Christopher Moore this is my fifth book of his but this one fell short for me The story is of a scientist who studies whales and their songs He has worked many many years in the field and when he sees the words BITE ME on the tail of one of his whales he is determined to find out how it is even possible Things are further complicated when the town crazy informs him that the whale he saw called her and

    So far I haven't met a book by Christopher Moore that I've disliked Or even merely had a lukewarm feeling for Fluke is no exception I mean how can you not like a writer who produces such lines as A centipede the size of a Pontiac had once lived in the bottom right corner of the trunk but had long since moved on once he realized that no one was ever going to bother him so he could stand up on his hind hundred feet hiss like a pissed cat and

    I’ve been putting off reading Fluke It was recommended to me by one of my uncles who meant well but whose method of recommendation was to spoil almost every major plot point and who then sent me a copy as a high school graduation gift Knowing a little something about Christopher Moore’s brand of humor I didn’t make it a priori

Fluke Or I Know Why the Winged Whale Sings

H letters Bite meTrouble is Nate's beginning to wonder Fluke Or PDF or 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 Bu People swear by this guy in a devotional sort of way I was excited to try one of his novels and frankly I m usually a sucker for otherwise human stories with some elements of the unexplained see Tom Robbins Magnolia or Lost Moore s Fluke started out as no exception I was engaged by the characters laughed out loud a few times and was hooked into these mysterious events and the promise of something larger The insertion of scientific fact mostly marine biology and humpback whales and mysterious Defense Department goings on only increased my interest That same blend of factoidsanecdotes into somewhat bizarre fiction has caused me to tear through a few Chuck Palahniuk novels and that s the sort of pace with which Fluke flies by So it can t be all bad The story just lost me when it started explaining too much I think I like my mysteries unresolved or at least not so neat Not to geek out too much but I had this same feeling during the second season of Lost I felt disappointed when too much was attributed to some psychology experiment and everyone stopped being afraid of going in the jungle Here there s a different explanation And even though the second half of the book was entirely original with its own absorbing twists and turns it felt like a different book like something I hadn t signed up for All of the new developments started feeling less like originality and like a cop out The character development dropped off replaced with fantasysci fi explanations that I just didn t care for It s still a funny mostly engaging read but I finished Fluke with that feeling that is never a sign of a book gone well I didn t want In fact I wish there had been less
