As most people probably know, the book deals with a plot to assassinate Charles de Gaulle, President of France, by a group opposed to his policies on Algeria Not only does the reasonably well informed reader know that, historically, de Gaulle was not assassinated, but Forsyth actually makes a point of telling us this early in the book So, in a most important sense, we know from the outset how the book ends And yet, it is one of the best examples I ve read of page turning, heart stopping, breath holding suspense writing.

21 507 1962 1958 22 The Day of the Jackal was over, and I was glad of that Just because this old thriller was related to a favored genre of mine the historical fiction didn t mean I would like outdated thrillers with no idea that hasn t been milked by movies of various characteristics But I learned one thing after reading this book, and that was that archaic books like this died intestate There were defining aspects in this hefty not too much though novel There were new characters that kept making entry until the last pages Also there was the fact that we know that The Jackal wasn t going to succeed At the other end of the spectrum, there was another type of sitting duck of the species known as Dead Meat Those who you knew were going to die did die But as the novel progressed, it was difficult to care for the victims The only brilliant idea in the story was that the info that set the ball ro One of the things that I like about Goodreads is that it s than just a bunch of book reviews It s a location where book lovers can exchange stories, discuss books, buy and sell books and simply go on and on about their favorite and not so favorite books So please indulge me as I provide a longish backstory before actually getting into my review because that is part of the fun To begin with please look at my bookshelves You ll notice that one of them is labeled seventies classics I was a child in the seventies born in 1968 and both of my parents were are for they are both still alive readers Mom liked classic dense novels, works about human behavior Carl Jung et al and the occasional serious work about the supernatural Edgar Cayce,Dorothy Jane Roberts and so on She encouraged my love of history and started my modest collection of historical works many of which I still own Thank
