A deeply engrossing story of human resilience and faith and hope even unto death during the reign of the madman emperor Nero. Romance even blossoms in crisis times like these.

Quo Vadis by Henrik Sienkiewicz is a literary masterpiece soaked in well researched Antiquity. It looks like a first-person account of Nero's Rome. History has been portrayed with so much of authenticity that a real life excursion into history might as well end up as a hollow trip. The romance between Ligia and Vinicius, the early Christianity and the Pagans of the age collectively conspire to transport the reader to a bygone era. People pursuing PhD must read it to borrow a little bit of Research Methodology. Thanks.

This book is a historical epic, and could make a tremendous movie. It is a great depiction of early Christianity under the rule of Nero. The author's descriptions, etc. are unparralled. I would even put this book on the 100 books ever written list!

Quo Vadis is a masterpiece of classical literature. I have read and reread it many times over the past years. The book focuses on the persecution of the first Christians during the reign of the Roman Emperor Nero linking the brutal dark shadows of European history with its beautiful classical culture. Quo Vadis is simply exceptional and for this reason, I sincerely believe it deserves to be recommended to a wider spectrum of readers.

I simply loved this book, because H.S. shows that although christians in the time of Nero were persecuted,the word of God will always last trought time.
It's simply marvellous and exceptionally well written.

/Anna Lozinska, Czech Republic
The book is wonderful! I like the breathtaking story about the love of Vinicius and Lygia, the historical.
I am very impressed by this novel because of great showing from Sienkiewicz in the time of Rome, especially in the time of Nero and his hatred for Christians and his bad works against the Christian people. He put in the end of the novel an important question: and so what after the victory of Christianty?
It is a very deep and life changing book. You just imagine yourself being present and you got a picture of whoyou really are.

It's a beautiful historical masterpiece about the Roman times. It takes place in Rome and introduces difficult and wonderful figures. My favorite characters are Petronius and Lygia. I was about 15 when I read it.
