    Just why do humpback whales sing? That's the question that has marine behavioral biologist Nate Quinn and his crew poking, charting, recording, and photographing very big, wet, gray marine mammals - 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.

    Jill says: "Entertaining story, as usual!"
    "This is why I listen to audio books"
    Overall

    After listening to "Fluke" the first time, I sent a note to Bill Irwin, thanking him for such an entertaining experience. His interpretation of these characters--laid-back Nate and Clay, Clair, the Old Broad, Kona--fleshed out Moore's book in hilarious and unexpected ways. His performance was, in my opinion, pitch perfect.

    My favorites? Kona's reaction to the news that the Chinese eat kitties; the Old Broad's insistence that the big whale wanted a pastrami sandwich. Moore's work is why I read and Irwin's narration is exactly why I listen to audio books.
