Asterix: Asterix and the Golden Sickle Summary

Asterix: Asterix and the Golden Sickle: Album 2 by Rene Goscinny

It's a disaster - the druid Getafix has broken his golden sickle. Asterix and Obelix go to Lutetia (now Paris) to buy him a new one. Soon they are tangling with the criminal underworld of the big city - can they outwit Navishtrix, Clovogarlix and the sickle-trafficking gang? Will Getafix ever be able to brew magic potion again?

Asterix: Asterix and the Golden Sickle Reviews

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
