Happy New Year, Peeps!
I spent the last couple of months reading through a few volumes of Tintin (Volumes 3 to 6). Since I didn’t have a lot of specific things to say for each one, I thought I’d share this summarised post/review. Here are the books in order of preference:
- Volume 5 which contains Red Rackham’s Treasure, The Seven Crystal Balls, and Prisoners of the Sun – 4 out of 5 stars
- Volume 6 which contains Land of Black Gold, Destination Moon, and Explorers on the Moon – 3.5 out of 5 stars
- Volume 4 which contains The Crab with the Golden Claws, The Shooting Star, and The Secret of the Unicorn – 3 out of 5 stars
- Volume 3 which contains Tintin and The Broken Ear, The Black Island, and King Ottoker’s Sceptre – 3 out of 5 stars
And here is a list of the stories these volumes covered, listed in order of most enjoyable to least (least being good, but not as good as the ones above):
- Explorers on the Moon
- The Seven Crystal Balls
- The Prisoners of the Sun
- The Secret of the Unicorn
- Red Rackham’s Treasure
- Land of Black Gold
- The Shooting Star
- The Crab with the Golden Claws
- King Ottokar’s Sceptre
- Destination Moon
- The Black Island
- The Broken Ear
Volume 3 is where Tintin begins to connect various stories. You will run across characters from previous stories after Volume 3. Which is why it may be a good idea to stick to the order the books were written in while reading them.
Regardless of how you go about reading them, don’t miss out on Tintin and his adventures. They are books and stories that everyone must try, at least once.
Let us know what you think of Tintin and which is your favorite adventure by dropping a comment below. Stay tuned for the summarised review of the rest of the volumes (which will probably come up in a few months). Until then… Happy Reading!
