Hilarious. Weird. Fast paced. Weird. Couldn't put it down. Did I say weird?

Christopher Moore's imagination is unbelievable. This is the third book of his that I've read and I'm still amazed at his creativity. He definitely thinks outside the box - actually I'm not even sure he's ever seen the box. I also love the fact that he's a little demented, he always makes me laugh. I'm looking forward to reading the rest of his books.

I want to say this wasn't the best Moore book I've read, but I've only read like 4... but besides that, the man is obviously insane. Where does he come up with this stuff? Dude... this was one screwed up book! Having said that, it did make me nostalgic for Hawaii, where I lived for several years.

This was a very funny and sometimes poignant book about whales, friendship, loyalty and discovering wonder in unexpected places. I liked the characters Nate, Amy, Kona, Clay and the Old Broad.

This may well be one of the oddest books I've ever read... and it's not the first I've read by Chris Moore so that's really saying something. He truely has a way of taking something of interest (why do winged whales sing anyway???) and going somewhere with it you'd never imagine ending up.
I've absoluetely laughed my butt off while reading the books of his I've read so far and this one was no exception.

H-I-L-A-R-I-O-U-S!! And so are all of Christopher Moore's books. He's a comedic genious and one heck of a story teller. So worth a read if you love books that make you laugh.
