    1. Roman Emperor Nero, is a singer of beautiful songs, his first love, he himself composes, if you don't like them, better keep your opinions unsaid, you'll live a longer life. Nero has killed his mother, wife, brother, all his family, and many former friends. Only unlimited praise, the mighty Caesar enjoys ( but that he is terrible, his voice and music, is a small sacrifice for his friendship and the vast benefits, he showers) Petronius, the "Arbiter of Elegance", and close friend of the vicious [...]

    5. Great book for a retreat! Spiritually invigorating, makes one excited about the Catholic faith. It is fiction with references to standard Catholic tradition, and is set in the time of the Christian persecutions in Rome during the reign of Nero. The focus of the novel is a love story between a Roman centurion and a beautiful Christian princess-in-exile. The story's central conflict takes place in the person of the centurion's friend, who also happens to be a cultural lackey in the court of Nero. [...]

    6. Near the end of Quo Vadis Petronius (Arbiter) writes a letter in reply to his nephew Vicinius who has fled Rome with his bride, Ligia. In the letter Petronius discusses his philosophy and his fate contrasting it with the Christian belief that Vicinius has accepted. He says:"There are only two philosophers that I care about, Pyrrho and Anacreon. You know what they stand for. The rest, along with the new Greek schools and all the Roman Stoics, you can have for the price of beans. Truth lives somew [...]

    7. Superb.You must have read this novel.Gripping and full steam to the heart.A wonderfull book, dont miss it.I love it so much, I cant say accuratetly how I enyoyed it.

    8. It's easy to love the book for both the story and the history. But I love it all the more for the characters (except for Calina, I must say I find her rather dull). My favorite is by far Petronius; the arbiter of elegance. He has the most interesting evolution throughout the book: he makes it very clear that he only cares about himself, his own pleasures, his well-being. He doesn't like to be bothered with anything that happens in the dirty world of the peasants. He only cares for Vinicius in th [...]

    10. Clearly capturing the depravity of man while outlining the persecution of the early church, Quo Vadis vividly depicts first century life in the Roman Empire for slave, centurion, and emperor. As Sienkiewicz's final display of descriptive prowess, at the climax he floods his readers' senses with the evidence of a smoldering Rome. I've never been so tantalized by antiquity than after reading this historical fiction.All the while reading a bit like a best seller and not an epic novel from the 1800' [...]

    11. Quo VadisHenry Sienkiewicz`s "Quo Vadis" is a truly great book. Unfortunately, I know best how to explain its greatness to those who like me were young in thehe 60s and 70s. If you are not part of this group, this review may not be terribly helpful. To those of you of my generation, I will say that Quo Vadis is a wonderful novel about the Roman Empire in the First Century of the modern era when Rome was entering its decadent era. It is better than anything written by Robert Graves who still must [...]

    12. Il Cristianesimo, questo sconosciutoDunque sì, accomodatevi pure.Non state troppo indietro. Venite pure avanti, che altrimenti non potete vedere la magia di cui oggi sarete esclusivi spettatori . Ebbene, ecco quello che accadrà fra qualche istante. Svuoterò la mia mente. Cancellerò la mia memoria a breve e lungo termine, e di colpo sarò una Noce Moscata che non ha letto “Quo vadis?” a 17 anni, e non l’ha neanche riletto a 34.“Sim salabim, abracadabra, tutti giù per terra, puff puff [...]

    14. Emperor,Ancient Rome,Nobles and Slaves and above all a Latin title.Deus librorum audivit mea supplicia!

    15. I still think I was too young when I read this I think I was about eleven, and this is surely not a lecture for a kid. Still, after all these years, the expressionQuo vadis, Domine?remains embroidered into my brain, with no way of escaping. I don't know why it made such a great impression on me, but I do believe that this is must-read for everyone, a great classic in world literature.

    16. CAPOLAVORO. Una favolosa scoperta, soprattutto per me che non amo l'antica Roma come ambientazione nei romanzi. Una descrizione accurata e bellissima della città e delle anime dei personaggi, della loro psicologia, della loro evoluzione. Per non parlare dell'incendio e della persecuzione contro i cristiani, entrambe con una vividezza tale da farti sembrare lì presente ad assistere e a partecipare alle vite dei personaggi, dai protagonisti alla plebe di Roma tutta. Per non parlare poi del racco [...]

    17. I know this should be obvious, but the "Da Vinci Code" fury requires that I do mention this: these kinds of books ought to be read for what they are, novels, works of fiction, and not narrative-style histories. If books are read according to their genre, they'll be far more enjoyable and less likely to stir stupid controversy."Quo Vadis" isn't a history, then, but a work of historical fiction. If you're familiar with the 1951 film starring Deborah Kerr, Robert Taylor and Peter Ustinov, you shoul [...]

    18. "Nero fiddled while Rome Burned"-Quo Vadis builds on one of the more horrifying rumours of the tale behind this famous expression, in this story of love and faith in Nero's Rome. More horrifying are his descriptions of the gladiator games and "punishments" that Nero devised which are perhaps closer to the truth- and many shades worse than their modern interpretation in Suzanne Collins' Hunger Games. But amidst the excesses and horrors of life in Rome, there is also faith and love that brings to [...]

    19. ترجمه ی بی نظیری دارد. بی-نه-ظیر! و در ضمن خود کتاب هم نفس آدم را می گیراند، که یعنی من الان نفس گرفته ام، یعنی نمی توانم چیزی درباره ی تجربه ی خواندن این کتاب بنویسم که تجربه ی -شبیه ترجمه ی - بی نظیری است و بعید می دانم دیگر تکرار شود. دیگر هرگز می توانم دوره ای از تاریخ را - طبق پیش [...]

    20. This book was pretty terrible. As a classicist, I am deeply offended by the wooden, stereotypical rendering of Romans, even Romans during Nero's time. As a reader, I am deeply offended by the fact that very little actually happens. Sienkiewicz tells us about plenty of things, but he shows us very little. For instance, in the last third of the book, Petronius, who has been watching his nephew's slow conversion to Christianity with ironic detachment, writes him a letter talking about how much thes [...]

    21. Հռոմ ու ինչ որ քրիստոնյաներ։ Հռոմն ավելի հավանեցի։ Տպավորություն էր, թե Սենկևիչն ապրել է Հռոմում, քայլել հռոմեացիների հետ, այնքան մանրամասն էր փորձում փոխանցել ժամանակի շունչը։ Պատկերացնում եմ, ինչ ջանքեր են նրան արժեցել վեպը։ Սա յուրատեսակ շունչ է հաղորդում վեպին ու թե ի [...]

    22. I barely read 3 chapters and nor that the writing isn't good, but this book is not for me. I should have known reading out of my comfort zone could have lead to this. I am not going to give it a rating or a review because that would be unfair. Although I like history a lot, this book is just so heavy and page by page I just wanted to put it down and read something else. I am not going to force myself too much because it's a horrible feeling and that could put me in a terribile reading slump. I d [...]

    23. Quo Vadis? o "Jalan más un par de tetas que una carreta", trata de que a un vato romano le cuadran las nalguitas de una morra cristiana. Así que decide hacerse cristiano para ver si se las da.Y eso me recuerda a alguien.

    24. Rome under the rule of emperor Nero, AD 64. The Polish author, Henryk Sienkiewicz (1846-1916), went to Rome to observed for a couple of years during the writing of this book (published as a book in 1896). He won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1905. Quo vadis is Latin for "Where are you going?" and alludes to a New Testament verse (John 13:36). The verse, in the King James Version, reads as follows, "Simon Peter said unto him, Lord, whither goest thou? Jesus answered him, Whither I go, thou ca [...]

    25. Ci sono libri che aspetti di leggere da una infinità di tempo e quando li hai tra le mani sei felice come un bambino che riceve il suo giocattolo preferito. Così è stato per me "Quo vadis", un libro da tanto bramato, le cui aspettative si sono sciolte al sole. "Quo vadis" è come un piatto che non vedi l'ora di gustare, ma quando inizi ad assaporarlo, ti rendi conto che è insapore, insipido e soprattutto ha un retrogusto poco stuzzicante che ti porta a pensare che non mangerai mai più un pi [...]

    26. روایتی تاریخی که بی نظیر نوشته شده قسمتی تلخ از تاریخ بشر که نویسنده آن را با یک ماجرای عشق بی مانند همراه ساخته .و ترجمه ای بسیار عالی

    27. Se lee fácil, de una sentada. Está claro que si has visto la adaptación clásica vas a comparar novela y película. De hecho, me alucina ver cómo los guionistas crearon una serie de diálogos y frasazas que esperar leer aquí y no están, aunque algunas sí. Petronio sigue siendo Petronio, pero reconozco que me sigue gustando más el de la película. También me parece que la conversión de Vinicio es en la novela demasiado repentina, mientras que en la peli es ante el peligro que corre Ligi [...]

    28. Romanzo meraviglioso, uno dei più belli che abbia mai letto!Il libro racconta l'amore: quello terreno e quello spirituale.Molto coinvolgente è la storia d'amore (bellissima) tra i due protagonisti Marco Vinicio, giovane soldato romano, e Licia, figlia di un re barbaro. Una storia molto contrastata a causa delle differenze religiose che dividono i due: uno pagano l'altra cristiana. Un amore che accompagna Vinicio nel suo percorso di crescita, di maturazione e di trasformazione che lo porterà v [...]

    29. O fio condutor desta obra é o amor trágico entre uma Cristã e um Romano, que começou mal e tinha tudo para terminar ainda pior. Apesar de 'Quo Vadis' ter sempre como pano de fundo este romance fictício entre Vinício e Ligia, a obra é uma belissíma lição de história, sempre pautada pelos acontecimentos reais que se sucederam durante o reinado do cruel Imperador Nero.Para além de César, outros personagens históricos estão presentes ao longo do livro, como Petrónio, Tigelino, Popeia [...]
