Iconic but somewhat boring

A STORY WITHOUT MYSTERY
The Blue Lotus is a perfect continuation from Cigars of the Pharaon, in a sense that there is a real story, even more than in the previous book. But while this is interesting, the story is, for me, too classic and not that exciting. I much prefer Cigars because it is a true and fascinating mystery. There is no mystery in The Blue Lotus.
In this album, we can see that Hergé has done his work. This is far from Tintin in Congo and all its clichés.
Finally, the cover of the album is to me the most iconic one of all the Tintin albums. It is truly beautiful.
I give it 6 out of 10. Very good.
