I cannot say this is the best Tintins, because it isn't. There is no true plot in the entire story, and, over all, this is one of Herge's poorer works. Though Herge failed in making a servicable plot, he did work into the story several hilarious parts.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

This is the first Tintin book I read, and is still a firm favourite. Perhaps readers would be better advised to start somewhere earlier in the series but whether read with the others, or singly, this book is still a delight. All of the characters are on top form, whether the sublime Captain ("Blistering barnacles!"), the infuriating Mr Wagg, the nitwitted Thompsons or the stroppy, hysterical Castafiore herself. It is probably Herge's most accomplished story, in both the drawing and characterisation. I shan't give too much away, but you simply have to read the article in 'Paris-Flash'. That, and its consequences, is hilarious.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
