Review by

Although there were some parts that were probably not completely pc (they were published fifty years ago), I really loved returning to the antics of Tintin, Snowy, and Captain Hadock (especially all of his run-ins with various wildlife in this particular volume). Apparently reading and rereading books with a character who is often seriously intoxicated has not had the least effect on my development :p

Review by

Hergé steals a plot device from H. Rider Haggard in this one, or perhaps, to be more generous, pays homage to the master of the adventure story.Despite my slight annoyance on that point, this concluding "episode" is the better of the two-part story begun in <i>The Seven Crystal Balls</i>.Runaway trains, secret societies, mountain madness and high jinks in the jungle are just a few of the dangers facing Tintin, Captain Haddock and Snowy, crammed into just 64 pages. The action rarely lets up!
