All in all, this Best Seller has not withstood the test of time. Jun 09, Kelly rated it really liked it Shelves: sci-fi-and-or-thriller. I watched the Flight of the Intruder movie starring Danny Glover, Willem Defoe, and Brad Johnson as Jake Grafton over the weekend and was intrigued enough to pick up the book it was based on today. I have to say the novel was excellent. It was a great glimpse into the world of navy pilots during the Vietnam War. Coonts himself flew the A-6 Intruder attack bombers and he excelled at writing suspense, thrills, and showing just enough of the technical side.
It was a great read. Somehow I expected more. I liked the main character enough I want continue the series but struggled very much with the language very technical and I suspect some of the used expressions were incorrect or used in very rare contexts especially since I'm not native English speaker. I wish there was a glossary for people without military aviation background to help with the many abbreviations most at least once explained - not always explicit - but still confusing if you're not used to them and Somehow I expected more.
I wish there was a glossary for people without military aviation background to help with the many abbreviations most at least once explained - not always explicit - but still confusing if you're not used to them and technical terms uncommon to the layman. I liked very much Jake's development within the story and the action sequences. I hope very much this book was mostly meant as introduction to the character, his background and political situation so the following books in series will be easier to follow.

It is always great to get familiar with Jake Grafton again. He is one of my favorite heroes in literature. No matter what the problem is, Jake is always going to take the right path.
I need to read them all again Mar 04, Fred Shaw rated it it was amazing. If you want to know what it's like to do a carrier landing or take ground to air missile attacks this book will do just fine. Actually the realism in this book by Navy fighter air craft during Vietnam Nam is unequaled. The main character grew tired of losing his wing mates, so he decided to take matters into his own hands. If you wAnt to know what he did, read the book. Incredible writing kept me on the edge of my seat, reading late into the night. Jan 20, Ralph rated it really liked it Shelves: audio.
Having encountered Jake Grafton much later in his career, I thought I should experience his first appearance in "Flight of the Intruder". Having been a Vietnam war A6 pilot, Mr. Coonts' writing brought me inside Jake's A6 and I felt that I was being catapulted off the carrier alongside of him. Those parts of the book that focused on the combat missions kept me completely engrossed.
The attention to detail, the exchanges aboard the carrier, and the historical background were much appreciated.

Nor Having encountered Jake Grafton much later in his career, I thought I should experience his first appearance in "Flight of the Intruder". Normally I find audiobooks with multiple readers, especially those with dramatic production values, to be distracting and diminishes my enjoyment of the work. Not so in this case. The various artists enhanced the book and the audio processing made the radio conversations totally realistic. My favorite parts. Interestingly, the artist that voiced Jake was the one that I thought could have been better. He was good, but he didn't stand out in many passages.
The voices of Cole, the skipper, and most of the other shipboard characters delivered stronger performances. Some of the passages were a bit overdone on the dramatic side performance wise and I felt that I could have used a bit more prose after the adrenaline filled resolution at the end of the book to help me wind down before the book ended. However, my criticisms are all minor. I enjoyed this book and would recommend it. Jul 12, John-Michael Wells rated it really liked it.

An exciting novel with believable characters and extensive detail only someone who was there could provide. The action is tense, detailed, and almost makes you feel like you are witnessing the events yourself. I found myself gripping the book tighter during carrier take-offs and landings.

The protagonist is neither good nor bad; but a real person caught in a messy situation with conflicting duties to his job, country, himself, and humanity. The author develops the dilemma of a military officer s An exciting novel with believable characters and extensive detail only someone who was there could provide. The author develops the dilemma of a military officer struggling with self-doubt and a lacking sense of purpose very well. The bravado and camaraderie among the officers is spot on and the morbid humor reflects what happens in a real combat zone.
The technical detail of the aircraft may be a little too much for some, but being an airplane geek, I enjoyed it. Aug 02, Steven rated it liked it.
This one was a tough one to rate. I feel the idea and plot of the book was fantastic. It is good to see the Intruder get some action in Fiction.
Flight of the Intruder
I just feel Coonts's writing on this one was lacking the spark to keep me thrilled about the book. At times I found some of the stroyline predictable like a classic World War 2 movie from the 's and 50's and lets not forget Spike Lee's writing disaster on Mirical at St Anna's woof that was bad!! I get it that it was Coonts's first go at a novel.
T This one was a tough one to rate. The major problem I had was the relationship with Jake Grafton and Callie. It was too mushy and predictable where it was like I knew what they were going to say. Too amateur hour for me sorry. I also felt like the character of Cole was not believeable as the loner the author makes him out to be. In my opinion the Movie was better than the book in this case. Way more bad ass Jan 19, Phylwil rated it liked it Shelves: a-z-author-name-challenge. I finished this book on the way to take a "hard hat" tour of a carrier, intending to leave the book for another visitor to pick up but, alas, forgot.
The book is mediocre in that it seems like the author is working a checklist: pilot suffers personal loss when his bombardier is killed--check; pilot gets a girlfriend--check; pilot disobeys orders in very, very bad way--check; pilot gets shot down and injured but saves the day through personal heroism--check. I can only think that parts are just c I finished this book on the way to take a "hard hat" tour of a carrier, intending to leave the book for another visitor to pick up but, alas, forgot.
I can only think that parts are just completely unrealistic. You just can't have navy pilots flying off on their own missions, dropping bombs wherever. Oct 06, Tim rated it it was ok. The characters became much more defined, while the story became much less technical. Apr 29, Gerald Maclennon rated it it was amazing. The purchase was something I should have done 33 years ago when Coonts first published it. I don't recall why I did not. Perhaps it was because the movie, Flight of the Intruder, was so bad, I figured the book would be, also.
The book is a great study on the emotions and attitudes of the pilots. I had to chuckle when I read about Stephen Coonts' effort to get published, because I've 'been there, done that' as well. Back in the 80's, he sent manuscripts and letters of inquiry to 36 publishers Ha, as if he really cares. And as follow-up, Coonts received a valuable endorsement of his book by bestselling author, Tom Clancy, and then, unexpectedly, favorable comments by then sitting president, Ronald Reagan, which sent sales skyrocketing.
Clancy endorsed Coonts. Coonts endorsed Fey. I've often said Author Fey touched on it briefly They were equal to us enlisted grunts Hell, more so in drunken antics. Author Coonts goes into that in detail. Funny thing is He talks about how easy, how sanitary it is, to release his bombs and fly away, noticing only a puff of smoke in the distance It does my heart good to know the pilots had these very human emotions.

Once, during our deployment, our photo recon squadron mis-targeted a building. The photo interpreters said it was for ammunition storage. On our recommendation, the attack birds took it out. BDA revealed it could have been a schoolhouse full of kids. Not sure. That still bugs me And I was not the pilot but I was one cog in the gears of the killing machine.
Maybe if it really was a just war by political science definition I would have felt okay about the killing and destruction.
