THE REAL HERGE The Inspiration Behind Tintin

by | Read by Simon Vance

Biography & Memoir • 6.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Fans of the classic graphic novel series Tintin will enjoy this biographical audiobook about its creator, Herge. Listeners will learn about his lower-middle-class childhood in Belgium, his experience as a teenage illustrator for a Boy Scout magazine, and his years as the illustrious and sometimes controversial originator of the beloved boy reporter. With his hefty catalog, Simon Vance is an excellent choice as narrator. His experience provides a first-rate listening experience. Vance's precise pronunciation of foreign names and places aids those without knowledge of the languages used. Imbuing his performance with an air of enthusiastic familiarity with the material further draws listeners into Herge's world. A.L.S.M. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2021]
