Fluke
Fluke | Christopher Moore
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.Trouble is, Nate's beginning to wonder 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 (n Preston Applebaum). But later, when a roll of film returns from the lab missing the crucial tail shot -- and his research facility is trashed -- Nate realizes something very fishy indeed is going on.By turns witty, irreverent, fascinating, puzzling, and surprising, Fluke is Christopher Moore at his outrageous best.

I made my first #20in4 Readathon goal - finishing this book!
It was a unique story, a funny adventure, and has a Save the Whales message. Loved the chapter titles. Nice way to kick off the summer.
🐋🐋🐋🐋

My next goal was to read Saddle Up for Murder. I‘m switching books, and I won‘t finish it in a day, but I‘m planning lots of reading breaks.

I hope your challenge is going well @Andrew65

Andrew65 Great 🥳 Mine is coming along nicely. Already met one goal and should meet 20 hours later today. 2y
PaperbackPirate That‘s awesome @Andrew65 ! 2y

🐋 I‘m still reading and loving Fluke, which means I didn‘t meet my first goal, to finish before seeing Christopher Moore tonight. I‘m on p. 173/321. My new goal is to finish by Sunday.
🐿 The author was hilarious, and it felt good to laugh with a group of people again. Can‘t wait to read Razzmatazz!
📸 The event description said No posed photos, so hopefully this doesn‘t go viral. 😂
🐳 Thanks again @Andrew65 !

I may have failed at hitting my #SuperSeptember goal of finishing Fluke or Into the Drowning Deep but I did get this one finished today and I'm a good way through the other one plus almost done Imaginary Friend as well. I have zero self control when it comes to starting books 🤷‍♀️

I enjoyed this. It was weird as hell but pretty interesting. And I learned a LOT about whales. Some would say too much 😏

@Andrew65

Well, I didn't meet my goal for #SuperSeptember but I did get caught up in a whole lot of fabulousness with Canada's Drag Race so I'm not mad about it.

I did make a good amount of progress with both books I was reading and I'm almost done with the tagged book so I'm calling it a win for the weekend!

FantasyChick @Book_Fiend_Melissa It's on Crave. I haven't found it on cable yet but if she loves RuPaul she will love this! Fair warning....it's not censored. Also, if she has watched YTV in the past few years she might see a familiar face! 4y
MsMelissa Darn it, I don‘t think we have Crave 🤨 4y
FantasyChick @Book_Fiend_Melissa Awww crap! The only other channel it might be on that I can think of is OutTV. We don't get it so I'm not sure but I remember getting a free preview a while back and RuPaul was on it so I would think this would be too. 4y
Andrew65 That‘s good 👏👏👏 And plenty of time to go yet. 😊 (edited) 4y

So...my bookclub friend told me this was her favorite Christopher Moore book ever. I thought it had to be pretty darn good to be better than Lamb. And...it wasn't. It was so cray cray. A very imaginative storyline with some fun and the usual overabundance of unnecessary penises. 3 of 5 stars.

Readergrrl Lamb is my fave!!! 5y
Readergrrl Followed closely by Sacre Bleu 5y
Blueberry @Readergrrl I think my favorites after Lamb are Noir, The Stupidest Angel, and A Dirty Job, in no particular order. 5y

After trying Moore's Sacre Bleu many years back, and having it not work for me, I avoided starting anymore of his books. That was clearly a mistake that I am happy to have rectified. This is now the third book of Moore's that I've loved. This was fun and I love his smart ass sense of humour. I will keep going with Moore's novels. I've been loving them on audio and I think I will keep with this format. 3.5🌟 #44of2018

Suet624 I love Moore and it might be time for me to pick up one so I can giggle. 6y
jwashreads Sacre Bleu was not on of his best. A Dirty Job is my favorite of his. I tend to like his older works more than the books he's pit out in the last few years. 6y

Fluke or, I Know Why the Winged Whale Sings #longtitle #octophotochallenge #booktober. This book was so funny and incredibly stupid. I love Christopher Moore's older books and this one was definitely entertaining. The first time I read the title I definitely had one of those WTF moments.

Here's my #recommendsday! Christopher Moore's Fluke is a hilarious, absurd novel about marine biologists and some other-worldly whales. This book is crazy, but amazing and laugh-out-loud funny. It's one of those books that when you hear the plot, you can't imagine liking it.....but you will.😂🐋

Lizpixie You have to listen to the audiobook of The Stupidest Angel. It's read by a newsreader, and the contrast of his rich sensible voice with the whacked out story of an angel who resurrects a drunk in a Santa suit before raising a cemetery of zombies is hilarious! 8y
