    I always defend Frederick Forsyth’s work because I adore The Day of the Jackal. Initially, I read it and disliked it because it was cliched. A few years later, my appreciation for historical fiction grew, and then I gave it another chance.

    I was shocked by how engrossing it was. You can blame my change of heart partly on the fact that I finally realized how dated the book was. It came out in the 1970s. Many of the ideas it includes were not quite as overused in the 70s as they were in the late 2000s.

    More importantly, for a short book, it feels incredibly dense. Forsyth changed the way I perceive fiction, which I appreciate.
