A wildly inventive novel,

This review is from: Tintin in the New World: A Romance (Paperback)
This is Tintin's final adventure. Our clean-cut hero is languishing at Marlinspike with little to do when he receives a mysterious letter beckoning him to visit the ancient Inca ruins of Machu Pichu in Peru. He's off like a shot, dragging the old sea captain Haddock and the faithful Snowy along as usual. But this is not your usual story of evil criminals, dastardly plots and gun battles where no one dies. Tintin is truly on a trip to the New World of sex, death and feeling.
I found Frederic Tuten's new novel to be a beautiful, mesmerising philosophical work. Even the parts I didn't understand read so well that you cannot help but enjoy the amazing use of language. Highly recommended and I am sure worthy of a second reading.
