Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really well-done stories and illustrations This book was the first one I ever bought in the Asterix series, and it's still one of my favorites. Everyone in the village wants to believe the rosy future predicted for them by the soothsayer, with only Asterix expressing any skepticism. I really love the artwork in this series, as well as the attempt at giving the reader a feel for the historical era --- even though it's as historically accurate of ancient times as the Flintstones is of the caveman era! Still, a fun-to-read set of books!
