Review: Tintin in the Congo by Herge

Own the book: No
Source: Library
Format: Hardback
Price: N/A
Date Read: April 2014

Tintin in the Congo is the second in the Tintin series by Herge. It was originally written in 1930/1 and is extremely dated to that time. The attitudes to and the amount of needless slaughter of animals by Tintin was probably thought nothing of at the time, but nowadays I had to put the book down a few times and almost didn’t finish it. For this and many other of the attitudes shown by Herge/Tintin in the book I believe this is my least favourite Tintin and I won’t be reading it again. Apart from that, I do find the style of reading to be interesting, easy and engaging. The mix of words and pictures tell the story well and to all ages.
