Synopsis

Asterix at the Olympic Games by Rene Goscinny

It's Olympic gamers year. Brutus plans to be a sporting star at the Olympics, marry lovely Greek Princess Irina and then overthrow Julius Caesar. But the young Gaul Lovesix is madly in love with Irina too. Asterix and Obelix promise to help him win at the Games - the question is, how? It would be cheating to use magic potion. They must think of something else entirely in order to win the day, and the Princess's heart. Featuring exclusive bonus content and behind-the-scenes extras from the making of the 2008 film.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
