The Best Political Thriller of All Times

Would you consider the audio edition of The Day of the Jackal to be better than the print version?

I am seldom inclined to say that the audio rendition of a book is better than the book itself ... however I find this (new) audio version very enjoyable.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Claude Lebel, the French detective - he came to have a good feel of who he was after, and, somehow, became able

Which character – as performed by David Rintoul – was your favorite?

Superintendent Bryn Thomas of Scotland Yard's Special Branch.

Any additional comments?

In my opinion, this new (Random House) audio version offers a better narration by David Rintoul compared to the first (Blackstone Audio) version read by Richard Brown.
A must read, listen, and even view (Fred Zinnemann's film adaptation) for all mystery, espionage, and political thriller fans !

great thriller

narrator whispers a lot which makes it difficult to listen to without headphones, because you'll constantly have to adjust the volume.

As good as, if not better, than the movie.

I love reading Frederick Forsythe and listening to one of his books was a real treat. It was well narrated and spell binding. It kept me on the edge right to the end.

Worth every letter of its fame

Where does The Day of the Jackal rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Top 3

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Day of the Jackal?

Almost every moment. The meticulous planning, the plotting, the detail and never one dull moment. Reason I took so long to finish it is I kept rewinding so I wouldn't miss a single word

Have you listened to any of David Rintoul’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Not yet but I will

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Obviously when he was cornered in the end. You root for him the bad guy so much that you want him to succeed so much in his wicked mission

Any additional comments?

I recommend this book to anyone looking to bury themselves in a good well written and narrated story. I will read this book again.

Wish I could shoot French presidents for a living

What made the experience of listening to The Day of the Jackal the most enjoyable?

David Rintoul is a genius. Frederick Forsyth is brilliant in his writing but David brings it to life with such style.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I liked the Welsh, British Secret Service guy. He is what you think these public servants are really like.

Which character – as performed by David Rintoul – was your favorite?

The Jackal of course. Why, well because he makes him so real, so cold, so good and so bad. Oh, if I could be so wicked.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

No, just wish I was in this underworld with such skill and adventure.

Any additional comments?

Boys own adventure stuff. No nationalities were cliché or made to look stupid. All done in good taste without any cartoon characters rearing their ugly heads. Great stuff. Must read The Afghan now.
