Two rival chieftains have been elected to govern a little village in ancient Gaul - and a ditch dug through the village divides it, literally, into a party of the left and a party of the right. But the son and daughter of the two chieftains are in love.

Reviews for Asterix and the Great Divide (#25 Asterix)

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.
