Review: Tintin in America by Herge

Own the book: No
Source: Library
Format: Hardback
Price: N/A
Date Read: 3rd April 2014

Tintin in America is the third book in the series by Herge. Unlike its predecessor, the Congo, there is far more of a ‘Tintin Adventure’ feel and I really enjoyed it. As with most Tintin books, situations and places can be very dated (this was written in 1931!) and extremely stereotyped – the Indians in this book, for example. However looking at the book as a story, rather than as an example of the time period, I did very much like the style of writing and the mix of images to move the story along – a picture is worth a thousand words after all!

I look forward to reading more.
