Plans are in place to release an Audible version of The Captain Loves Caviar read by British Actor Paul Sullivan, (A video is about to appear on Youtube and my website featuring veteran actor of stage and screen Lewis Fiander reading chapter 34, A Waking Ship)
Comic novels can be whimsical or delightful or absurd or just plain funny. Rarely are they all these things. The Captain Loves Caviar is…I loved reading it. I loved its craziness! Howard Albrecht publisher Funny Stuff From the Crazy Gang. Hollywood.USA. Author of See You In Nairobi.
So hilarious! A riotous romp that’s sharply intelligent and refreshingly zany.

Read three chapters, and laughed out loud many times. How clever you are. The description of the characters is delicious...

We couldn't stop laughing about your book. It was one of those laughs that you lose your breath and I’m just now trying to work out which bit. It will come to me today xx

You keep your readers guessing, which is a good way to have ‘em.
Adored the albatross, what a great and unexpected beginning. Will he feature any more, I am wondering?
Just love some of your phrases. Not so sure about some of the characters as yet, especially as I am (believe it not) somewhat squeamish about body parts, fluids etc. —As for the rest, I keep seeing (even dreaming about) what a wonderful adult animated film it would make. Who to make? George Lucas?
Overall, congratulations, Chilli, on with the next one.

This book is terrific!!! And, it would make a GREAT movie---one kind of in the Grand Budapest Hotel genre, only this one on the sea.
