Firefox was the only Craig Thomas novel to be adapted into a movie. Clint Eastwood's version, released in 1982, made for a faithful adaptation of the book. Though the special effects of the time are horribly dated by today's standards, Eastwood brought all the suspense of the first half of the book to the screen masterfully. And if it weren't for the film, I wouldn't of ever heard of Craig Thomas and be able to enjoy all of his books.
Have read all of Craig Thomas's works, this is one of his best, have been waiting to read this for years. Picking up exactly where the last let off, Thomas displays his masterful sense of precisely paced action, riveting aerial scenes and nuanced charachters
Have read all of Craig Thomas's works, this is one of his best, have been waiting to read this for years. Picking up exactly where the last let off, Thomas displays his masterful sense of precisely paced action, riveting aerial scenes and nuanced charachters. Not as personal a novel as "Firefox", which was more centered around pilot/pirate Mitchell Gant, "Down" is more of an ensemble piece with more charachters in the trenches.
This is a fantastic book which takes the reader into the stratosphere. Thomas became an English Teacher, working in various grammar schools in the West Midlands, and was Head of English at the Shire Oak School, Walsall Wood. This book proceeds at supersonic speed and is thoroughly enjoyable.
