TinTin and Suspense

Francisco and I went to see TinTin last weekend. It’s wonderful. Then I read the NY Times’ interview with Steven Spielberg. He says, “I became enthralled with the way Hergé told his stories. Grand, epic, global adventures about a young reporter who goes all around the world looking for stories to tell and then gets himself deeply involved, and dangerously involved sometimes, in the stories he’s telling.”

Thinking about his statement, isn’t that the reason we like suspense novels? We enjoy reading about characters who are deeply involved. We root for characters are concerned about what’s happening in the world around them, and taking actions to make the world a better place.
