THE CASTAFIORE EMERALD may in many ways be Herg's masterpiece, and it is unquestionably the funniest of all his tales, revolving as it does on the theme of miscommunication ("No, this is not Cutts the butcher!").

Meanwhile, Captain Haddock's life continues to be a string of minor misfortunes and misunderstands thanks to Castafiore, Professor Tournesol, the parrot, Dupont and Dupond, and the unwillingness of the local repairman to come out and fix that step.
The visiting opera singer Bianca Castafiore is followed by journalists and her equivocal attitude to the press is hilarious - she embraces one magasine yet hates another simply because she didn't like one of the pictures of her which was published in it.

 Brightsurf: The Castafiore Emerald (The Adventures of Tintin) by Herge
Later in his career Herg set himself of writing what amounts to a kind of anti-Tintin adventure, where nothing really happens to his cast of characters (there are no opium smuggling rings to smash nor any political coups to thwart), and yet everything happens all the same.
Still, "The Castafiore Emerald" is well worth the read Hergý does a delightful take on that new fangled invention, the television.
With the interplay of the Captain and people like Castafiore, the pet parrot, troublemaking journalists, and the insurance broker, Jolyon Wagg, this Tintin album is hilarious from beginning to finish.

Probably the slowest-moving and most sedate of the Tintin books, it was conceived as a narrative exercise by Herge.
They investigate and upon learning that the community chose that site on account of being forbidden to use any other location, the Captain invites them to his grounds of his estate, Marlinspike, over the objections of his butler Nestor.
As soon as the emerald is found, it is (temporarily) lost once again by the Thompson twins, only to be found again a few frames later by Snowy and called a "rock", underlining the fact that the emerald is merely a McGuffin for the whole story to happen, and is in itself meaningless.

As Castafiore repeatedly points out, she has brought along her jewels, including an emerald given the signora by the Maharajah of Gopal.

This was Herge's ninteenth Tintin book and thus his style is established and refined as are his racial prejudices.
In fact by now Herge was a champion of the anti-racism cause.

The Castafiore Emerald is probably one of Herge's most mature works.

 Buzzwords Blog: 3AM Magazine: 3:AM REVIEW: TOM McCARTHY'S TINTIN AND THE SECRET OF LITERATURE
In spite of this, or because of this, McCarthy seems rather fond of the Captain, and in books full of not only humour but gags, Haddock, he says, not only makes a fine Situationist prankster, but his repetitive slapstick tripping over things and his continual Baudelarian falling is against life itself.
As Tintin connoisseurs will be aware, Frederic Tuten worked through issues of Tintin's manhood in Tintin in the New World, where the boy finally gets to use his penis and becomes a husband and father.
