Book Review: The Black Island by Herge

The Black Island by Herge

An unregistered plane landing nearby arouses Tintin's curiosity, but the pilot and passenger want no witnesses so they shoot him. Tintin recovers quickly and sets of in pursuit. Tintin is off on another adventure, eventually winding up on the eponymous fictional Scottish isle. The story moves from set piece to set piece almost too quickly--Tintin gets injured or put in jeopardy several times and recovers so quickly that he doesn't lose the trail of the bad guys. Even for a Tintin story, the pacing seems to be a bit of a stretch. Otherwise it's an enjoyable adventure and seeing him in Scottish clothing is fun.
