Just why do humpback whales sing? That's the query that has marine behavioral biologist Nate Quinn and his group poking, charting, recording, and photographing very enormous, rainy, grey marine mammals. till the intense day whilst a whale lifts its tail into the air to demonstrate a cryptic message spelled out in foot-high letters: chew me.
Trouble is, Nate's starting to wonder whether he hasn't spent a bit of an excessive amount of time within the sunlight. 'Cause nobody else on his workforce observed something -- no longer his longtime companion, Clay Demodocus; no longer their saucy younger study assistant; no longer 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 study facility is trashed -- Nate realizes anything very fishy certainly goes on.
By turns witty, irreverent, interesting, complicated, and striking, Fluke is Christopher Moore at his outrageous best.
