    2. We ve arrived I smell gangsters To quote Snowy Tintin has arrived This is, as far as all logic dictates, the first Tintin book in the series in the conventional sense The first two Tintin in the Land of the Soviets and Tintin au Congo are oddities which are interesting in their own right, but really recommended for Tintin completists only.Great snakes This is entertaining as all heck, and to think the best is yet to come There isn t much I can add to this review, really If you are a Tintinologi [...]

    3. Gangsters, machine guns and police brutality Welcome to the good ole U.S of A Tintin On a mission to clean up corruption in Chicago, Tintin is kidnapped, shot at, gassed, tossed in a lake, and clubbed by a copper Then it s onward to the Redskin Reservation to make fun of some Native Americans Here Tintin, the little towheaded Paleface, is shot at some , trapped in a tunnel, and manages to discover oil Don t worry oil company men instantly materialize to reap the profits and screw the Red Man out [...]

    4. When I first read Herg s Tintin en Am rique in German translation as Tim in Amerika as a child and I guess I must have been about nine or ten years of age , I did indeed find the general storyline somewhat and mildly amusing But even then even at that time , I was already thinking that Herg had been rather strangely loose with his fusing together 1920s 1930s Chicago gangster and organised crime culture with what can only be considered and described as the so called Wild West and its utterly ster [...]

    5. After Africa, and Congo precisely, Tintin went to America.From his arrival in Chicago, he has a lot to deal with gangsters who seem to have given themselves the word to lead him the hard life They will try every means to harm him threats, kidnapping, transformation into Corned beefTintin will go to Indian territory in pursuit of a brigand Note that Herg s vision is far from being uninteresting as to what happens to the Indians once oil is discovered on their land.Well, this album is far from be [...]

    6. Re reading Tintin series is special experience to me, he was the comics hero i rated highly when i came to Sweden as a kid Of course i cant remember much from the actual stories now other than i liked the over the top fun,adventure.Rating this as an adult is different and i thought this volume was a clear improvement on the black and white early,immature artwork of the first volume Tintin in Soviet and the weird,off putting animal slaughterhouse that is Tintin in Congo.This volume the art is muc [...]

    7. This book was so lazily written Everything was soooooo convenient Tintin should ve died, like, ten times Oh, Tintin s been tied to metal and dropped into the sea Nevermind It was accidentally made of wood Oh, Tintin is tied to railroad tracks Nevermind Some lady stopped the train because she saw a puma maul a deer Tintin needs a way out of the room Oh, there s a secret door Tintin needs to find the criminal Oh, he bumped into him in the desert It d be insulting to the reader if it wasn t so godd [...]

    8. Tintin ini emang beruntung banget yak Dikejar kejar mafia, hampir mati dikejar suku Indian, etapi sukses sukses aja akhirnya XD

    9. Herge Criticises the American Way4 February 2012 This is not really my favourite Tintin story, though it is only the third one ever written The story appears to be set immediately after Tintin in the Congo and it is suggested it has been a long time since I read a Tintin in the Congo, if I ever actually read it in English so I can only garner from what was said about it at the beginning of this story that Tintin busted a diamond smuggling ring in the Congo and then travelled to the United States [...]

    10. My first taste of Tintin I can see the cheeky appeal.There isn t much plot here, just a long series of narrow escapes, some through clever planning, but most by dumb luck Yes, the attitudes on race are badly dated, but I think it s at least a little tongue in cheek In other cases, the attitudes of the time are refreshing There isn t much of it, but the political and social commentary, when it comes into the story, is still fresh all these years later My favorite bit was when a hotel detective st [...]

    11. This is the first color edition of tin tin As I have read few latest editions than these, I felt that it is not like those All the adventures in the latest editions are wonderful and tin tin escapes from them by his intelligence and spontaneity, where as in this one it is of luck Also the cartoons are too geeky and the narration was boring at some times Nevertheless the brand name of tin tin will make u read it completely and entertains u well

    12. 1 This book would fall under the category of a junior book, graphic novel.2 Tintin is a reporter who somehow gets out of extremely sticky situations It is set in 1931 in Chicago where Tintin manages to chase down gangsters across the Midwest 3 critique a As far as graphic novels go, this book is not that great The characters lack development and the plot is pretty lame b Graphic novels often lack the depth of character development, but this book goes seems to lack even a bit of development The w [...]

    13. This is one of the three pre war Tintin books which are not in general circulation in English, and for fairly good reason it s not all that good Tintin goes to America in 1931, briefly captures Al Capone who was still just about at liberty in real life at that stage , is himself captured by the Blackfoot tribe, and then has a series of unlikely and disjointed adventures ending with him rolling up the entire Chicago Syndicate of Gansters and sent back to Belgium as a hero The only African America [...]

    14. This was the first coloured edition of the tintin books and much of the racist outlook and Various propaganda were thrown out of the window, making this portrayal of Tintin much closer to the one we have known and lovedThat said the Talking Dog and Characters not dying after stuff like explosion, car accident and Train accident still exists making this issue despite a much better installment than its predecessor still a book that hasn t aged well for this day and age

    15. A disappointing start to the Tintin series A simplistic series of incidents strung together by unlikely coincidences onto a threadbare plot Tintin is one dimensional and uninteresting in this story.I know that the series gets better as I read some of the later ones to my children when they were younger Therefore, I will persevere and hope that Herg hits his stride quickly.

    16. End ups being very repetitive and exhausting to read Tintin gets saved a dozen too many times Certainly hints at being a good book but overstays it s welcome and at 60 pages that s quite a bad achievement.

    17. I hardly remember anything Read Tintin so many yrs back, maybe some 14 yrs back Rereading the whole series And thoroughly enjoying again

    18. We love the Tin Tin series since we traveled through the Loire Although it begins with a precise date 1931 and location Chicago and features a real historical figure Al Capone , Tintin In America is Herge s tribute to the mythical America of dime novels and silent serials especially gangster stories and Westerns There s a real Perils Of Pauline quality to Tintin s misadventures, which see the young reporter and his faithful terrier Snowy attempt to clean Chicago of gangsters, and which includes [...]

    19. J ai lu Tintin en Am rique dans le cadre d un d fi de lecture, pour la cat gorie un livre banni interpr t au sens large du terme, quelques biblioth ques ont refus , pendant un certain temps, de l avoir sur leurs tablettes et je dois dire que je ne suis vraiment pas surprise que a soit le cas certains passages sont tout simplement horribles, entre autres parce qu ils contiennent des commentaires racistes, et ce m me si ce genre de discours tait plus accept l poque.M me en dehors de ces passages d [...]

    20. I read this last night to my two boys, aged 5 and 7 Holy Smokes It s a good thing they are so young I was actually appalled by some of the things I read The lynching of negroes The displacement of American native peoples If Herg was trying to voice his opinion on these things, I would not have suggested that he do so in a book destined for children who do not understand satire My kids sure didn t get it, and luckily I was able to mumble through such parts, but boy oh boy I sure wouldn t want my [...]
