5.0 out of 5 stars Epic, Pretentious, Stupid...and Hilarious 19 Feb. 2013
By W. Pinsent - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This review is long overdue. I read Prelude to a Super Airplane after getting addicted to Brian Spaeth's hilarious blog Brian23.com. His posts are usually short, odd, and extremely funny, and that's a pretty good way to describe this book. This is one of two books that has made me consistently laugh out loud. The other was Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. Everything about PTSA from the descriptions, running gags that are laced in, and the intentional grammatical errors is great.

It's hard to get through a full page without one really good laugh. And then there was the epic drama, that had me look up from the book just like Bruce Willis.

If I say anymore, I'll just keep repeating how funny it is. But I really enjoyed this book, and would recommend it to anyone. Just go in knowing that you're about to read something completely ridiculous (intentionally so), be open to the humor, and you'll be in for a great read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wooed by a deceptively muscular protagonist... 18 Jun. 2012
By Romi M - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I never in my life thought I would be SO invested in any of the following things:

-a 46-story airplane (I may be off by a few floors)
-solid-gold robots
-a fitness model with a children's pop star alter ego
-Bruce Willis explosion movies
-a protagonist that can only fall in love at airports

Somehow it all tied together in a gripping tale about airplanes, missed connections (not airplane-wise, but love-wise)...and the American dream. Or something.

It's all thanks to the deceptively muscular protagonist who is singularly unique and who is very much inspired by the author himself, or so I think.

I don't need to say anything else about the story, because if the list above does not compel you to download this book, we are so NOT on the same page.

I already purchased the sequel and it's been patiently waiting on my Kindle for two months now as I dealt with life things, so I can't wait to read it this summer!

4.0 out of 5 stars Energy Drinks, Bruce Willis and Airplanes: A Psuedo-Political-Economical-Psychological-RomComThriller 19 Jan. 2011
By Tuck Tucker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Sometimes life imitates art. So there I was, in an airport on my way to NYC, drinking a Monster Lo-Carb Energy Drink, waiting for my flight on Southwest Airlines...when I started reading the first book I've tried to read on that Kindle thing on my phone, and this book is about airplanes, and energy drinks and Southwest Airlines. Naturally, I was perplexed, shocked, awed and amazed, and also hopped up on taurine and whatever guarana is.

Brian Spaeth is a tough egg to crack. He's got more twitter accounts than anyone I've encountered, and he, by all accounts, doesn't sleep much. Those two things may seem inconsequential, but they seem to help to explain Prelude To A Super Airplane more than anything else. The book is poorly written, plot-hole ridden and repetitive. But it is also hilarious. About 15 pages in (or whatever the equivalent of 15 pages is on a smart phone app), I bought in; and I enjoyed it tremendously.

Maybe it had something to do with the fact that I was reading a much more serious book at the same time, or with the fact that I was reading a book on a phone, and that I was never truly comfortable with that. But Prelude To A Super Airplane was a blast.

So pick it up and follow along with any of the character's twitters, or references to said characters in Who Shot Mamba? (Youtube: Who Shot Mamba), or read the author's old blog at Yay! Sports, or just follow the madness at Brian's blog or his personal twitter.

I'll say this much: I was an English major in college, and I can safely say I've never read anything like this book before.

5.0 out of 5 stars I have a fear of flying. 12 Oct. 2011
By Kooz Zorb - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
HAHAHAHAHA! This book was so funny. I've never read anything like it. Sure, it's taken me 2 years to read it, but that's because I kept dying with laughter at every sentence. After reading one line I had to call up my best friend and tell her what I'd just read. Then we both had a good laugh until the next time I called her. The reason reading this book took so long was because my friend is British and the humor in this novel is decidedly American. I had to become a major USA history buff to explain every sentence to my friend.

I think the best thing about this book is that it has so many characters in it, my favorite being the little orpan boy who put up his fists like a 1920s boxer. And I think this book cured me of my fear of flying somehow.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Prelude 23 Dec. 2010
By cazjuice - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is one of the greatest stories ive ever read before. He shows some sort of raw savage ability to tell a story in a singular unique way. Everything in this story made no sense. But it was all connected in ways not seemed possible by mere normal humans. This book is honestly fantastic.

I myself have a somewhat poor memory but i was still somewhat able to keep up with who was who. It would been smart to keep a character list as i was going but im not smart like that. My favorite part was when he was standing outside the super airplane. As he debated the realitty of the situation in his head. Was it real? Was it just a story he made up? Or was he just trapped in his own mind.

The story makes you think in ways you never thought possible.
