The Adventures of Tintin, Vol. 5: Land of Black Gold / Destination Moon / Explorers on the Moon by Herge3.5 stars!
I spent the last couple of months reading through a few volumes of Tintin (Volumes 3 to 6). Since I didn’t have a lot of specific things to say for each one, I thought I’d share this summarised post/review. Here are the books in order of preference:
Volume 5 which contains Red Rackham’s Treasure, The Seven Crystal Balls, and Prisoners of the Sun – 4 out of 5 stars
Volume 6 which contains Land of Black Gold, Destination Moon, and Explorers on the Moon – 3.5 out of 5 stars
Volume 4 which contains The Crab with the Golden Claws, The Shooting Star, and The Secret of the Unicorn – 3 out of 5 stars
Volume 3 which contains Tintin and The Broken Ear, The Black Island, and King Ottoker’s Sceptre – 3 out of 5 stars
And here is a list of the stories these volumes covered, listed in order of most enjoyable to least (least being good, but not as good as the ones above):
Explorers on the Moon
The Seven Crystal Balls
The Prisoners of the Sun
The Secret of the Unicorn
Red Rackham’s Treasure
Land of Black Gold
The Shooting Star
The Crab with the Golden Claws
King Ottokar’s Sceptre
The Black Island
The Broken Ear
Volume 3 is where Tintin begins to connect various stories. You will run across characters from previous stories after Volume 3. Which is why it may be a good idea to stick to the order the books were written in while reading them.
Regardless of how you go about reading them, don’t miss out on Tintin and his adventures. They are books and stories that everyone must try, at least once. Stay tuned for the summarised review of the rest of the volumes (which will probably come up in a few months). Until then… Happy Reading!
Food and Beverage Service

Our mission is to make food and beverage the heart and soul of our hotels by thinking like restaurateurs and delivering an experience that is excellent, relevant and authentic.

The food and beverage sector grew out of simple origins: as people travelled from their homes, going about their business, they often had a need or desire to eat or drink. Furthermore, going out to a restaurant is the number one preferred activity for spending time with family and friends Restaurants Canada, a. Look at Figure 4. As you can see, Americans spend significantly more of their total food dollars in foodservice establishments than in grocery stores, and in Canada we spend more of our total food dollars in the grocery store than we do in foodservice operations. For a perspective on how sales are distributed across the country by province, and how different foodservice operations perform in terms of revenue sales dollars collected from guests , look at Tables 4.
