Some people are so difficult to please! 21 Nov 2009

Format:Hardcover
Ignore the carping: this is great fun. I agree that if you have never read an Asterix book before, this may not be the one to start on, but to the dedicated fan there is lots to enjoy here. Old characters reappear, scenes from old adventures bring back warm memories and the new stuff is a hoot. I particularly liked a section speculating on what would happen if everyone really did age fifty years instead of keeping their youthful looks and another with Cacofonix hosting an Andrew Lloyd-Webber-style reality show for aspiring bards.

Of course it’s slightly self-indulgent but if you can’t be self-indulgent on your birthday…

When material is cosily familiar, it’s invigorating to do new things with it and here Uderzo manages with great style.
