I was triggered to (re)read this by the Tintin movie; the movie draws from several stories, some of which are here. Three stories. The Crab with the Golden Claws - Tintin meets Captain Haddock and they clear up a drug ring. The movie used a lot of this - Karabudjan, Tintin's capture and escape on the ship, the hijacking of the plane and the desert crash - plus one of the secondary villains here shows up in the movie as ditto. Like most Tintin stories, a lot of lucky coincidences, slapstick (mostly but not entirely from Thompson and Thomson), and puns. Fun. The Shooting Star - a very odd story about a giant meteor that falls in the Arctic; Tintin and a bunch of scientists head out on Haddock's ship to investigate, and it turns into a race with a corrupt financier backing the other side. The meteor eventually goes under, nearly drowning Tintin, but a chunk of its unique substance is retained, so it's a complete win. The science is so warped in this one that it strikes me as a bit dreamlike...but still fun. I wish we'd gotten to see more of the pilot, though. Nothing (or nothing major) from here in the movie. The Secret of the Unicorn - this story provides the basic plot structure of the movie. The model ship bought in the market, the secret, the duplicate ships - Sakharine is present, though he's not really a villain in the story. Haddock is also quite different, since he and Tintin are old friends - in fact, in the story, Tintin is buying the ship as a present for him. Haddock also knows the story of his ancestor, without benefit of a desert dry-out. And unsurprisingly, the movie's depiction of the ship battle was much more impressive, as well as more drawn-out (the number of stamping-outs of fuses got rather ridiculous, though it was very Tintin style). A good story, though it doesn't really have an ending - Tintin and Haddock get all three papers and discover that they need to go hunt the treasure, and the story ends. So two good and one odd but good story.

I am not as partial to the small format of this book, or the hardback cover.

This volume contains three of the weaker Tintin stories, most notable of which is The Shooting Star, which is quite frankly pretty silly. Although Captain Haddock first joins the party in The Crab with the Golden Claws, there is little else to recommend these stories over some of the really classic Tintin adventures, such as Tintin in Tibet or Land of Black Gold. In many ways, the present volume is appropriate for Tintin completists only.
