Comments: This book collects Asterix and the Soothsayer, Asterix in Corsica, and Asterix and Caesar’s Gift.
“Asterix and the Soothsayer” The town’s people are cowering in fear of a storm. As the people cower in the great hall a Soothsayer joins them. The Soothsayer sets himself up nicely and begins to fleece the towns folk. Meanwhile, the Romans want the town. They move in and then move out. The Gauls with Asterix and Obelix leading them well mainly Asterix makes them see the light. He is a good guy and does look out for others.
“Asterix in Corsica” Each year the Gauls attack the Roman encampments so the Romans leave them empty for the day.  In the camp Asterix and Obelix find a man from Corsica and they return there with him. In Corsica, the Romans are extra lazy and the Corsicans are weird. This story drags on and on with tons of long names used that are hard to read. The story eventually ends and as it does it’s party time. The Gauls do love a good party.
“Asterix and Caesar’s Gift” Well Caesar does give a gift out and it is a Gaulish Village to a retiring soldier. Then it passes hands and a Bartender is now trying to be the new village chief. The wives of the Bartender and currant Chief hate each other and they are the cause of the strife. Now several people are trying to become the Chief of the village and lots of strife is being created.
Asterix may be the main character yet others are used almost as much. The characters are lovable. You will enjoy following along on their adventures.
