    I like this book because at the beginning it makes you think that the gypseys are the thieves, and the Police think so as well.

    I also LOVE Polly.

    I think this comic is funny and amusing but also not the same as a usual Tintin which has guns and things but this has… MONEY/emeralds really.

    An action packed book and comic that will hook you in and wont let go you till you have read every line. Its one of the books that are so well written you can predict the next bit.

    ohhhhhh,Tintins back and better than ever before.One of my favourite ever comics how did Herge ever think of this amazing series of books.

  21. Mr Milne says:

    The Castafiore Emerald is not a typical Tintin adventure because (1) the whole thing takes place in Captain Haddock’s country residence Marlinspike Hall, (2) nothing much happens, and (3) Tintin’s not much involved. It is still pretty funny. It’s basically a comedy of manners and I especially enjoyed Captain Haddock – on the verge of a nervous breakdown, after suffering endless injuries and indignities – trying and usually failing to endure or escape the attentions (and singing) of Bianca Castfiore and her vicious parrot. That said, I think I prefer some of Tintin’s other adventures where he takes on criminal low-life around the world.

  22. cwitchell says:
