It begins with Getafix competing against his peers at the druids contest, and winning. Then we are introduced to the Goths, a warrior race bent on conquest but somewhat lacking in brains. Having spied on the druids contest, they kidnap Getafix for his magic potion.
Things don't turn out as planned for the Goths, as Asterix, Obelix and Getafix manipulate the different Gothic tribes to turn on each other. First, with the magic potion, and then without it. The Goths are too dense and busy fighting each other to notice the effects wearing off!
This leads to mayhem in Germania that lasts for years, keeping them out of Gaul. A brilliant story.
The French is not particularly easy, and you will miss many of the puns (unless your French is much better than mine) but there are moments of pure hilarity, that make the effort well worthwhile.
I believe that TintinLe Secret De La Licorne (Les aventures de Tintin)is easier to read, but find Asterix more fun. It is a matter of personal preference.
A great story with the Goths talking in Gothic text, and lots of humour too what with all the running battles going on and such. The village feast scene returns at the end too. A classic Asterix tale.
