Reviews - What do customers think about Six Adventures of Tintin: Volume I?

A Workout For The Imagination  Mar 28, 2008
It is great to listen to a good dramatized story and imagine what is happening, the way our grandparents used to do when there was no television around! A good exercise for our minds!

Five of the six adaptations were great. The only one that could have been way better was "The Black Island", which is, by far, my favorite Tintin book. To me, that adaptation was disappointing: the story was cut too short, and Richard Pearce -the actor playing Tintin's voice- should have been more convincing. Still, one can see that "The Black Island" audio adaptation was the first one of the series. The next five stories are wonderful and all the voice talents are convincing!
Great buy,... I love it  Jan 2, 2008
This audio book set will delight any TinTin fan... I wonder when they are going to come out with the audio books for the rest of teh TinTin books.
Very good.  Jul 13, 2006
This was my first Tintin tape. It includes:

"The Black Island" - Tintin tries to solve the mystery of a crashed plane.

"The Secret of the UNICORN" - An old model sailing ship that Snowy breaks will lead Tintin and Snowy to adventure.

"Red Rackham's Treasure" - Tintin, Snowy and Capt. Haddock are now searching for the wreck of the UNICORN. Introduces Professor Calculus.

"Destination Moon" - Tintin goes to the Moon. Need any more info?

"Explorers on the Moon" - The real Moon adventure.

"Tintin in Tibet" - Tintin goes searching for Chang Chong-chen, the young Chinese boy he met in "The Blue Lotus."

Six Adventures of Tin Tin  Dec 30, 1999
These audio cassettes are wonderful. The actors do a terrific job bringing Tin Tin to life. My eight-year-old son loves listening to them while he plays or cleans his room or is in the car. It's like old-fashioned radio and far better than watching the TV.
BBC Recordings Add New Dimension To Tintin  Dec 28, 1999
Stories include: Black Island, Secret of Unicorn, Red Rackham's Treasure, Destination Moon, Explorers on Moon, Tintin in Tibet. The BBC has pulled out all the stops to provide top actors having fun with the Tintin stories, plus great sound effects and appropriately exciting or scary background music. The voices are quite different from the video taped stories, and so offer a completely new interpretation. And whereas the video tapes focus on visual presentation and pretty much treat the audio as a given (fair enough), these audio tapes fully exploit the possibilities of sound. Tintin is played absolutely straight, but the other characters are somewhat camped up, to provide entertaining parodies of themselves (for instance, the East European baddies have accents worthy of a Bond movie). Be aware that the accents are all very British or are British versions of foreign accents; but very clear recordings would make them easy to follow for most non-British English speaking listeners, I'd say. The stories follow the books more or less; the title 'unabridged' may mislead, as to compress the stories to a half hour each, much has been chopped out - consequently the stories rattle along at a fast clip. What have been added are touches of humour absent from the originals, such as an evil doctor describing Tintin as having signs of mental disorder which include 'infantilism, delusions of grandeur, a dog lover, and plus fours'. I bought these tapes for my 6 year old daughter, but we both enjoy them equally though in different ways: she for the plot and the escapism of the stories, me for the subtleties of the interpretation and the humour. These tapes are a steal at this price. Next stop: volume 2 for me.
