Description of this Book

Gaul was divided into three parts. No, four parts - for one small village of indomitable Gauls still held out against the Roman invaders. BOOK 21 On being demobilised from the Roman army Legionary Tremensdelirius gets the title deeds to the little Gaulish village. Soon, however, he swaps them for a drink in a tavern and the landlord Orthopaedix, his wife Angina and their daughter Influenza set off to claim their rights. Strange to say, Asterix and his friends don't see it quite the same way.

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ 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
UK Review Bertrams Star Rating: 4 stars (out of 5)
