Product Description

Review

The Asterix books represent the very summit of our achievement as a literary race. In Asterix one finds all of human life. The fact that the books were written originally in French is no matter. I have read them all in many languages and, like all great literature, they are best in English. Anthea Bell and Derek Hockridge, Asterix's translators since the very beginning, have made great books into eternal flames. THE TIMES"

Book Description

The 20th album chronicling the much-loved adventures of Asterix and friends.

6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By The real Jane Austen on 5 April 2009
Format: Paperback
Buying an Asterix comic when I was young was the highlight of the month. They were fairly expensive and I had to buy them from my pocket money, so it made them more of a treat. I can't really decide which one is my favourite, but this one definitely ranks in the top 3. Apart from the usual 'in-jokes' about Obelix and the villagers, it's an hilarious portrayal of their insular neighbours and their traits and quirks. Thirty years on, I pick it up and still love these books.

A really funny adventure of Asterix for those of us who knew Corsica 20 or more years ago.
For French speakers, the original French version is obviously better but this is a very decent English translation.

Amazing what geography and culture can be learned from these books set outside Gaul! My 8 year old grandson has now completed the full series. Anyone who listens to a child reading this out loud will get pure enjoyment. Reading it together can be just as much fun. What a series of characters, stories, puns and jokes; not to mention some brief, albeit not totally accurate, history.
