very poorly translated from French to English

User Review  - fldpgny -

I was born and raised in France, but my English is perfect. I grew up reading Tintin (in French). This is the first time I see it translated into English. The translation is lousy, and literal, unfortunately. I could've done a better job myself. Charlene Staufer Read full review
