Listener Opinions

    " Book group, of course. Historical fiction about Rome and the rise of Christianity. Interestingly, our book group members had read two different editions and one was definitely more sensuous than the other. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Fred Leavitt | 2/11/2014

    " I read this book in Dutch. I remember that I really liked it but I think I'm going to read it again in English. "

    " I prefer the Focus on the family verson the best "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mark | 1/23/2014

    " A stunningly powerful book. It vividly portrays the life of Rome during the reign of Nero. I found it very inspiring. It is well worth the price of admission. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jason Goodwin | 1/20/2014

    " loved it at 16. Would I like it so much now? Dunno. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carmon | 1/7/2014

    " A very moving book, portraying the great faith of the early martyrs of the church. It also portrays the depravity of ancient Rome, so not for the faint-hearted or those who have trouble reading about such things (no details, but alludes to things that sensitive souls might not like). "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 booklady | 12/31/2013

    " One of my favorite works of historical fiction...I just wish I remembered the entirety of the story better. Guess I need to reread. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chris Birck | 12/28/2013

    " The DEFINITIVE Polish epic. Sienkiewicz is a genius. "

    " read it in polish original "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dani | 12/20/2013

    " It wasn't easy to read, but it was so worth it. I loved it "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mom | 12/19/2013

    " A love story and a conversion story, this historical fiction describes the persecution of the Christians by the Romans during Emperor Nero's reign. I was surprised by the violence (realistic probably but not totally gory) because the book was written in the 1860's. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lin | 12/8/2013

    " Fascinating historical novel about life and times in Rome, Christianity's struggles, Nero... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Vasili | 11/7/2013

    " This classic will make you wanna love all over again. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tetuko Nuringtyas | 8/15/2013

    " cerita sejarah yang memukau hari-hari saya dengan sekelumit kata, " QUO VADIS.... " "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Liz | 7/30/2013

    " If you want to know what life was as a Christian in Nero's Rome - this is for you. A love story set against a Roman Tribune's life as he encounters Christ. Latin terms sprinkled throughout. For those of us who "love the latin" - written in 1896. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jim | 5/5/2013

    " Recommended by Anne Shaw. Downloaded it for free on the Kindle. Puts you right in the midst of the world of Nero and what it means to be a Christian. Very well done. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Char | 12/28/2012

    " One of the most moving and real books I have read. Truly epic "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rebecca | 12/12/2012

    " Contrast between a very secular worldly culture and the spiritual life lived by the Christians in Rome. It does show a lot of the immorality of Rome in Nero's time. The Christians went through horrible deaths, but their evident trust in Christ made a huge impact on those who watched them die. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rosemary Spark | 9/2/2012

    " Old but good anyway. Christian message that is positive good info about period of Nero's Rome "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Melanie | 7/15/2012

    " Hard to get through in the beginning, but was worth delving into. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Vince Carter | 1/25/2012

    " This is a fascinating story of intrigue and romance in Rome in the first century A.D. as Christianity was beginning to spread and the mad emperor Nero first burned the city, then blamed the Christians and tried exterminating them as revenge entertainment for the populace. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Domini | 12/5/2011

    " Had to stop at Chapter 36 -- way too slow going for me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ron | 11/23/2011

    " One of my models of how fiction can be skillfully woven into historical fact for fun and educational reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Aiste Klyvyte | 8/2/2011

    " Some say I should have read it in high school. Well, I didn't, now is my turn and I absolutely enjoy it. The language is beautiful, the characters are colorful and the plot is exciting. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Don | 2/17/2011

    " exhausting!!! some great set pieces, and well researched, but just tootoo much detail & too many emotional scenes where Xtian and Roman values come into the same collision... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Hannah | 2/2/2011

    " The only thing that kept me from reading this book a second time was the sheer size of it, the wrighting is in a masterful style. It perfectly portarys the roman courruption, and at times it was quite depperessing. I loved the romance between Marcus and Ligia. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Larry | 1/9/2011

    " The film in 1954 was stunning but the book was also very good. "

About the Author
Author Henryk Sienkiewicz

Henryk Adam Alexander Pius Sienkiewicz (1846–1916) was born in Wola Okrzejska, Poland. He studied at Warsaw, traveled in the USA, and in the 1870s began to write articles, short stories, and novels. His major work was a war trilogy about seventeenth-century Poland, consisting of Ogniem i mieczem (With Fire and Sword, 1884), Potop (The Deluge, 1886), and Pan Wolodyjowski (Fire in the Steppe, 1888). His most widely known book is Quo Vadis, which has been filmed several times, most notably in 1951 by Mervyn LeRoy. He received the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1905.
