    Disappointing. Asterix just isn't as funny as the earlier books. Mansions of the Gods had me howling with laughter. This one had me thinking they've just run out of good ideas and good jokes.

    A great gift for my grandson.

    Few Asterix fans would would not want to give Albert Uderzo credit for keeping the much loved series running single-handedley since the untimely death of partner Rene Goscinny. Every four years, without fail Asterix fans have a new album to enjoy and though the scripts have never quite managed to equal Goscinny's talents, Uderzo has done a more than capable job on that front, notably 'Asterix and Son' and the more recent 'All At Sea' being just as good as Any Asterix classic.Which is why it hurts to admit the great man just may have finally run out of ideas. Asterix and the Falling Sky is quite simply the worst Asterix album ever. Aside from having the most improbable (and fairly ludicrous) plot, there is not one outstanding moment in the entire book.An encounter between Extra-terrestrial good guys and bad guys reigns overhead whilst Asterix and company mostly observe and occasionally get involved. Had the adventure actually taken place in outer space it may well have been improved but you get the impression Uderzo just didn't have the energy to create an entire new world, and just settled for these non-spectacular Aliens (including a host of Arnold Schwarzenegger clones) slugging it out over the village we all know and love so well.Without wishing to give away any of the plot (no danger of that when there isn't one) this is little more than a few half-baked ideas strewn together. The good guy Alien (named 'Toon') ultmiately rewards the villagers for their half-hearted assistance by erasing their memories so that they would have no recollection of this entire adventure. If only he could have done the same for me.

    I have read every Asterix book ever published and was excited when a NEW one appeared, what a load of ****. This is just complete and utter stupid ****. Find a copy for a 1p if you have to read it otherwise give it a miss. It is just nonsense, utter rubbish, set in our favourite Gaulish villiage. Aaaaaargh! Hated it!

    This certainly is an odd entry in the Asterix saga. Perhaps Uderzo is running out of ideas, since he needed to introduce aliens. The story is only mildly interesting although it has its moments, but at no point does it reach the same level as the old adventures. The art is great as always though.I wish I could give it 2,5 stars, but since that's not possible I give it two stars. While most of the Asterix adventures deserve 5 stars and are always great fun for both kids and adults, this one probably appeals more to kids. They're usually great adventures full of humour. This one is neither. I still don't think it's as awful as most reviewers seems to think. It's good enough to kill some time with, but that's all. Asterix fans might want to check it out but don't have too high expectations. If Albert Udernzo would happen to read this, please, put some heart into the story next time, and if you can't come up with a better story than this, please hire a writer.

    I've just recently gotten back into Asterix. I think the key thing to remember is these books/comics/omnibuses or correct descriptive term are written for children. Children like robots and space ships, enjoy simple jokes and haven't spent the last 50 years reading Asterix comics. I think obvious parody and homage aside this was a really brave departure so late in the day for it's creator and despite some of it's excesses is pretty much childish fun. Not the best but I'd have to say not the worst and not deserving of such out raged criticism.

    What can I say that hasn't been voiced here already.A truly awful book.No real story and an utter disappointment after waiting years for a new story.Ridiculous 'Mickey Mouse' aliens, minus the ears, who even come from the world 'Tasildweny' - 'Walt Disney' if you look....Apparently Uderzo wanted to pay homage to Disney. I suspect Walt Disney would have been offended by this rubbish book.Arnie clones - in years to come, nobody will get the joke.Can you imagine Indiana Jones finding an island where Donald Duck is still living?Utter garbage.I've been an Asterix fan for over 40 years and have every book - except this one.It went to a charity shop shortly after I read it. I don't even want in on my shelf.
