Quo Vadis


Read by David Leeson

(4.8 stars; 46 reviews)

Sienkiewicz’s epic novel of ancient Rome finds the Empire at the height of her power and splendor, but struggling with the madness and cruelty of the Emperor Nero. A new religion is sweeping across the world, causing many Romans to wonder and leading many others to sacrifice everything for it. Yet, even as a great city burns and darkness threatens to overwhelm the age, hope is found in the love of the Roman tribune Marcus Vinicius for the beautiful Christian maiden Lygia, and in his journey toward his life’s true purpose (Introduction by D. Leeson). (20 hr 58 min)

Reviews

bad translation

(4 stars)

please get the translation by W.S. Kuniczak!! I was reading it, but I needed to finish faster. I can BARELY stand this one.

(5 stars)

Great reader! Very nice dramatizing. I'm sorry it ended! I need more books like this one.

Good book, Great reader

(4.5 stars)

The book and the translation itself were a bit wordy with a lot of unusual names and a large vocabulary. That being said, the storyline is excellent and the time period seems to really come alive in the descriptions. The reader did a remarkable job with the pronunciation, annunciation, swap between character dialogue and description, and overall tonality throughout the entirety of the novel. The recording quality was also top notch.

(5 stars)

excellent book except it is quite long. It would be hard to really put life in such distinctions about the time of Nero and the Christians. Defined the evil of Nero and the Salinas persecutions he brought up on not Just Christians but other peoples.

Life Changing

(5 stars)

Powerful story about the transformative power of God. Not an easy book to read, but well worth it.

(5 stars)

after I got used to the narrator, I absolutely loved the story. majorally historical with a sprinkling of romance

Great

(4 stars)

Don't skip over this beautiful piece of Christian propaganda. Very well read and translated, easy to follow.

(4 stars)

Gruesome but compelling. A little long winded but that can be forgiven.
