Welcome to the forums! I agree with you about Shooting Star and King Ottokar's Sceptre, by the way.

My favourite one is The Castafiore Emerald. It has some suspense; it tricks the reader into believing there is yet another conspiracy masterminded by a diabolical genius. But in the end it offers a simple, innocent solution. It's nice to see a Tintin comic without an evil cuprit at least once. Just an innocent bird. I even find it somewhat relaxing.

So here is my top 5 Tintin books in order (I am counting the sequel stories as a single adventure here):

1. The Seven Crystal Balls/ Prisoners of the Sun(amazing suspense, spooky vibe)
2. Cigars of The Pharaoh/ The Blue Lotus (amazing plot, dangerous villains)
3. The Secret of 'The Unicorn' + Red Rackham's Treasure (good humour, interesting plot)
4. The Land Of Black Gold (tough villains, great setting/ environment)
5. The Calculus Affair (unpredictable plot)

Although I love all the 24, my least favourite would be The Castafiore Emerald - no real plot, average humour, decent suspense build-up but came in weak at the end which I know some people found good but just not my cup of tea I suppose.
