Obelix falls for the beautiful Panoromix, a new visitor to the Gaulish village, only to discover her heart belongs to Tragicomix. Tragicomix, who was forced to join the Roman Army, has been taken off far away to another land to fight for Caeser's great Enpire. Obelix feels it his duty to rescue Tragicomix so Panaromix will be happy once more. The best solution Obelix can think of is to join the Roman Army, and his beloved friends Asterix and Dogmatix come too. This is one of my favorite books in the series and one of the funniest.
