What book could you read over and over again?


Past Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd has a “lookalike“. He is a fantastic literary figure who is employed in many tricky situations as a problem solver.

I refer to Tintin the intrepid reporter who enters into many adventures. They are recounted in a series of books, each one being a classic. They are set out like comics and make for really intensive reading.

It goes without saying that my favourite character in literary terms is Tintin. I have all of Tintin’s books and love to read and reread his adventures.

Tintin occupies the pedestal and takes the gold award for mine as being the best of literary characters. Coming a close second albeit it in total comic form is ‘The Phantom’. If I have to choose between the two, there is no issue – it’s Tintin all the way.
