Fluke, by Christopher Moore

I really love Christopher Moore's writing. He has a true sense of irreverence and a similar sense of humor to Larry Niven, though his books are much more far-fetched/fantastical. This one is about whales, and gets weird right around the time when Nate, the main character, sees a whale with the words "BITE ME" written on its flukes.

Compared to Fool, another book of his that I've read, Fluke is rather tame in terms of vulgarity. It's good to know, though, that Moore can still write a damn good novel without having to resort to shock value. I'm incredibly excited to read more of his stuff, and have a feeling he might turn into one of my favorite authors.
