really liked it
Read in January, 2009

This is the first book I have read by Christopher Moore, and I was really surprised at how much I enjoyed it. It is about Nate Quinn, a biologist who is studying humpback whales trying to figure out the meaning of their song. Odd things start to happen, though, like finding a whale with ‘Bite Me’ painted on its tale and somebody breaking in and trashing his lab. While trying to figure out who would want to sabotage his research he starts to question how much anybody could even care about the work he has done for the last 25 years, and realizes that even if he finds the meaning in the song, nobody would ever believe him. Throw in a few near death experiences, a cast of the most eccentric and eclectic characters I’ve ever experienced, and Killer whales named Kevin, and you’ve got a spectacular book that was far more enjoyable that I had expected.
