    Book details

Phoenician merchant Ekonomikrisis has forgotten the druid Getafix's order for rock oil - an essential ingredient in the magic potion. So Asterix and Obelix go prospecting for black gold in the Middle East. Can they also outwit the Roman secret agent Dubbelosix and his amazing folding chariot, equipped with all the latest spy gadgets?

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 OUTThe 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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

    Uderzo quickly redeemed himself after the awful previous book, which was the first created on his own. This is much more like the old stuff, a sure footed adventure on a mission overseas. There's lots of humour in this one without watering down the action, and some of the little plot devices are excellent. Features a spitting image of a certain famous espionage agent. Near to getting 5 stars, but the weak ending let it down.

    I am 22. I read the Asterix books years ago when I was in school and I have just started to buy them for myself again. I know you are probably thinking "What? He`s nuts! " but I feel that the humour in these books is more suited to an older audience. I am pleased to say that I will have these books for ever now and I will be able to share them with my children, as and when they come along.

    When Asterix and Obelix go to the Land of Black Gold they come across the most breath taking adventures. The illustrations are fabulous! They show the all the details of The Promised Land, the way it looked in 50BC, at the time of the Roman occupation! Asterix and Obelix have the funniest way of doing things, when they go on the first quest ever for black gold!Just Brill!
