    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.

    colleen says: "Best way to ruin a good book."
    "Poor Narrator Choice"
    Overall

    This is one of Christopher Moore's best works. His style, subjects, and humour admittedly aren't for everyone, but Fluke is likely to find a wider audience than many of his other works. The story is pure Moore and not to be missed! Just don't bother trying to listen to this audiobook.

    The narrator not only speaks in an off-putting monotone, but his occasional attempts at inflection are typically a word or two off in any given sentence. Such poor narration ruined what should have been a wonderful time getting reacquainted with the quirky story and memorable characters that made me a life-long Moore fan by the second paragraph.
