    • Svi koji zovu i vjeruju vidovitom Milanu (i njemu sličnima) bi trebali ovo pročitati. Samo se bojim kako ih pola ne bi shvatilo.


    • Der böse MentalistDieser Astérix-Band ist ganz klar ein Gegenentwurf zur von mir sehr geliebten Fernsehserie "The Mentalist" - Der Seher in diesem Band nutzt seine Cold-Reading-Fähigkeiten bei zugegebenermaßen etwas leichtgläubigen gallischen Hinterwäldlern aus, um sich materielle Vorteile zu erschleichen. Dass er dabei Unfrieden im Dorf sät, und Astérix der einzige ist, der sich nicht von den "nach Regen kommt Sonnenschein"-Vorhersagen des Trickbetrügers das Hirn verschwurbeln lässt, [...]


    • Ein Unwetter tobt, und die Gallier sind alle im Haus des Majestix versammelt, schliesslich könnte ihnen doch der Himmel auf den Kopf fallen! Und Miraculix ist an einem Jahrestreffen im Karnutenwald und kann das Dorf somit nicht beschützen Inmitten des unheimlichen Gewitters steht plötzlich ein Fremder an der Tür: Lügfix, der vorgibt, ein Seher zu sein. Da Obelix nicht zulässt, dass der Fremde die Zukunft des gallischen Dorfes aus den Eingeweiden von Idefix liest, begnügt sich dieser eben [...]


    • This book tells us not to believe to soothsayer. God has his willing. Think first before we believe what people said.The story began with a terrible storm in the village that scared everyone, especially because the druid was not in the village. Then, the soothsayer came and told everything, people began to belive what he said. Not only the Gaul, even the Roman believed what he said. That's why we need to think clearly before we believe what people said, especially if that come from a big mouth p [...]


    • For some reason I never used to like Soothsayer. I have reformed my opinion. A charlatan Soothsayer comes to the village, driving the Gauls into a frenzy of ambition and envy. The Romans see an opportunity, only for Centurion Voluptuous Arteriosclerosus to himself become convinced by the Soothsayer. Chaos and biffing follow


    • What is a soothsayer to do when confronted by Asterix?He should've run away. Luckily, he didn't, so Asterix and Getafix get to set him straight.I'm with Obelix, no dog readers for me, thank you!




    • In einer dunklen und stürmischen Nacht erscheint ein Seher im Dorf und verführt die Dorfgemeinschaft um einen Vorteil für sich dadurch zu bekommen. Nur Asterix durchschaut ob seiner angeborenen Zweifel das Spiel und arbeitet gegen den Seher. Albert und Rene bringen dem Leser nicht nur die gallische Götterwelt und die Welt der frühzeitlichen Vorstellungen, insbesondere des Aberglauben nahe - sie zeigen auch die Welt der Blender und jener, die willentlich auf deren Geschichten reinfallen. Dam [...]


    • I remember reading this as an eight year old and not really understanding what was going on with Prolix the Soothsayer. I think I still believed he was magical even by the end which, of course, is the point. We should see him as a fraud from the word go. So, while this wasn't a favourite first time round, in the same way something like Asterix at the Olympic Games was, it's a great read some years after.


    • Far from my favorite in the series. The redundant interactions between soothsayer and centurion wear. I did enjoy the fish-linked humor bits, and the discussions about the reliability of entrail reading as sources of prophecy made me laugh (and cringe when the soothsayer wants to use Dogmatix as reading material!). Does anyone else think the pirates need an intervention? Poor saps.


    • How intresting that a soothsayer may bring about the end of our favourite village. In the end as always, it all becomes just as we remember, a big feast at the end.


    • Asterix and Obelix have to keep their rational as a would be soothsayer creates havoc in the village and also among Romans!Maria Carmo,Lisbon, 20 March 2015.


    • Ottima storia. Il personaggio dell’indovino è davvero ben sviluppato e finisce col suscitare simpatia. Memorabile. Notevoli i paradossi del suo rapporto con i romani.


    • One of my favourites, with some excellent satire of psychics generally and the usual array of puntastic names.


    • Fun. The first I have read from the series, and I will be back for more favorite quote: "Can I have a taste?"


    • During a bad storm, a soothsayer arrives in our Gaulish village. Most of the villagers fall under his spell when he starts predicting favourable things about them. Only Asterix is the sceptic.Makes surprisingly deep statements about human nature; apart from that, standard Asterix fare.


    • Goscinny pistelee onnistuneesti ihmisten taikauskoisuutta ja taipumusta luottaa huijareihin jotka kertovat mukavia valheita. Myös tilannehuumori toimii.Asterix-seikkailuista parempia, joskaan ei paras.


    • A great comic book and time killer. I'v read it over and over again but if your looking for a more advance book, this is not what you want.


    • Klassinen synkkä ja myrskyinen yö -tarina, jonka muistan myös jo lapsuudesta. Kai tämä on sitä Asterixin kulta-aikaa. Hyvä albumi, toki ehkä vähän nostalgiaplussaa arvostelussa.



    • It was a dark and stormy night, when a stranger knock the door and asks for shelter. A bit later wants to "read" Intefix bones and Ovelix is furious and the troubles begin!


    • Mange år sidan sist eg las denne. Trur kanskje det er perioden frå Le chaudron og utover til omtrent cadeau de cesar som er sterkast i serien.


    • Este livro começa por uma tempestade. Que faz os gauleses recear que o céu lhes caia em cima da cabeça. Para mais o druida Panoramix foi para uma reunião de druidas. Nessa altura estão todos reunidos e aterrorizados na cabana do chefe e chega um estranho que diz ser adivinho e chamar-se Charlatanix. Só astérix é cético, mas o adivinho com meia dúzia de verdades de la palisse e dizendo às pessoas aquilo que elas querem, consegue agradar-lhes e apesar de sair da aldeia, todos vão ter c [...]


    • A turbare la tranquilla vita del famoso villaggio gallico, stavolta, è un misterioso indovino che prevede il futuro. E tale sarà il livello di facile creduloneria dei suoi abitanti (tranne ovviamente lo sveglio Asterix e il saggio Panoramix, che purtroppo in quel momento era fuori sede) che li spinge a credere all'imbroglione vestito di pelle di lupo e addirittura decidono, tutti quanti, di abbandonare il villaggio per rifugiarsi in un isolotto vicino. Ma il falso indovino, sfortunato lui, sar [...]


    • It's a dark and stormy night in the village. Everyone is in the chief's house when someone knocks at the door. It's a guy claiming to be a soothsayer (a fortune-teller). Although he's a total fake, he manages to convince the villagers that he's real and they bring him lots of food and money.He ends up in the Roman camp and agrees to get the Gauls out of the village which he manages to do by pretending the village is cursed. The Romans briefly occupy the village, but Getafix, Asterix and Obelix a [...]


    • Panoramix è via per l'incontro dei druidi è un indovino in una notte di tempesta si presenta al villaggio abbindolando tutti con false speranze. Tutti tranne Asterix che escogiterà un piano per smascherare il ciarlatano e far rinsavire gli amici.Albo dichiaratamente contro gli indovini e i veggenti e a favore dell'emancipazione femminile (le donne qui per la prima volta bevono la pozione magica). I personaggi vengono dipinti come creduloni, ma forse in fondo non piace a tutti sentirsi dire ch [...]


    • Ho letto una volta un'intervista a Goscinny in cui affermava che questo è l'albo di Asterix che vendeva meno in ristampa, e ne dava la colpa alla copertina decisamente più cupa rispetto alle altre. Non so se sia vero, ma è vero che io stesso più volte rimandai l'acquisto di questo albo prediligendogli altre avventure di Asterix, e inconsciamente la copertina può aver avuto il suo effetto.Di certo non è una delle storie migliori, ma si lascia leggere e ha qualche momento veramente surreale [...]


    • A sweet-talking soothsayer arrives at the village and soon fools everyone into believing his garbage, except the skeptical Asterix (the druid is out of town). The soothsayer soon manipulates the entire village into doing his bidding, until the Romans receive orders to arrest all soothsayers in the area (requiring a duplicitous game on the soothsayer’s part to survive).Humorous, with the obvious themes being gullibility and superstition.


    • The future is told by the fortuneteller, however he is in for a surprise when Asterix is determined to prove him fake. The soothsayer falls into the hands of the Romans, whereas the whole Gaulish village is deceived as well. The confusion in the village and the utter confusion in the Roman camp as well!
