Nick Sullivan’s narration begins with a neutral-voiced, straightforward description of Tintin, “a young reporter with a nose for news.” Soon Sullivan launches into dramatic characterizations, beginning with Tintin’s light British accent and his deep enthusiasm for the UNICORN, a three-masted model ship he buys. Almost immediately villain Ivan Ivanovitch Sakharine enters, his evil tones affecting just the right sinister sound as he tries to bully Tintin into selling the UNICORN without success. This speedy entry sets the quick pace of nonstop adventures—a mysterious scroll slips from the ship’s mast; Tintin is kidnapped and finds himself traveling aboard a sailing ship. Sullivan’s portrayals of the story’s larger-than-life characters take listeners to exotic lands, where treasure and surprises await around every corner.
