A cartoon drawn with such supreme artistry, and a text layered with such glorious wordplay, satire and historical and political allusion that no reader should ever feel like they've outgrown it. TIME OUT"
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" --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
The 13th album chronicling the much-loved adventures of Asterix and friends.See all Product Description

Forced to leave their village and enter the Roman world, Asterix and Obelix find out just how insane 'civilisation' really is. What we have, at the risk of sounding over-analytical, is as brilliant a satire of modern life as ever there was, from the decadent world of avante-guade theatre to the tax-collector who speaks only in the manner of a multiple-choice questionaire. You will never sit through a pretentious play again without hearing "Orgies! Orgies! We want Orgies!"
