I read a lot of British literature so I've grown used to seeing the British poking fun at the French, but I think Asterix in Britain is the first time I've seen it the other way around. It is hysterically funny, with Asterix and Obelix commenting on the weather, the food, and the strange habit of their British comrades to drop everything at the same time every day to have a hot drink.

Possibly the greatest Asterix adventure? ( )

Très drôle; les auteurs jouent avec tous les stéréotypes; et c'est même meilleur (pour un étudiant en français) avec ces explications. ( )

Asterix and the gang are always good for a laugh. In this adventure, he and Obelix visit Britain and experience all of the weirdness that the Britons take part in! Lots of fun. ( )
