Quo Vadis (Barnes & Noble Library of Essential Reading) 3.9 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 56 reviews.

This book is historical fiction with many true characters and events in it. In a way it is "religious" and there is nothing wrong with that. The read is long, but the writing takes off about 100 pages into the novel. It starts slow and builds as the characters are being developed. Anyone who likes Steven Pressfield or Michael Curtis Ford's novels on the Ancient World will see this book as the "original" historical novel, for it was the first. A great read that keeps ones involved. And Jerimiah Curtin's translation of Sienkiewicz's writing doesn't miss a beat. Now I see why B&N has listed Quo Vadis as one in their "Library of Essential Reading" series.

I read that huge honkin book in two days it was so awesome. I CRIED, and I don't cry easily. I never thought I would love a character in a book as much as Edward Cullen from Twilight, but Marcus Vinitius comes seriously close!!! He's so freakin awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am a ardent atheist. This is still one of my favorite novels. It is the story of one mans willingness to discover hisself. I have loved this book for twenty years! I read it probaly once a year. Enjoy.

I have never been able to fully read this story, but it's really good so far. Very interesting. It's amazing how much faith one girl had in God!

...but not only. I feel this book has stengthened by resolve. The story told here is so powerful. This is story telling at its best. But in the end, and most of all, it brings you closer to God. :)

A vey well written book that is hard put down. It is a beautiful story set in ancient Rome with suspense, love, wonderful imagery and a powerful story. It has to be one of the top novels ever written.

This is one of the those books that will stick with you for a long time. I found it hard to read in the sense that it was so disturbing. What these early Christians went through for thier faith during this time was absolutely monstrous! I was glued to this one, yet the harsh reality of it was painful to read at times.

This is the second version of Quo Vadis? (Lord, where are you going?), and is a powerful telling of the early Christian martyrs. The Latin names are a bit tough at first, but this modern English translation brings the story to life. And it's all here: a tale of love and lust, power, brutality, compassion and sacrifice, set against the insane Nero's persecution of the early Church. Not only could I not put it down (and it's no bit of fluffy reading), but I went right back in and read it again.

font is extremely small and there are wide margins, so font could have been easily bigger. I would not buy this book, if I had known the type was so tiny. Almost returned; however, didn't want the hassle.

I read a lot. Some of my favorite novels are The Count of Monte Cristo, Lord of The Rings, and David Copperfield. I stumbled on to this book after reading a profile of the late author, Henryk Sienkiewicz, in World Magazine. It soon became my favorite novel. It is powerful, stirring, and inspiring. Nero is shown in all his disgusting glory, a pre-Hitler Hitler, concerned only with his ego. There is an amazing love story, and even two apostles from the Bible make it into the book. I could not recommend a better book.

Look for the free version of this book with "Narrative" in the title. It has very few errors.

This version is not good. The first few pages do not display the full scanned page. The rest of the book has wrongly typed words with symbols instead of letters. I was highly disappointed. I prefer Barns and Noble service over Amazon as NOOKstudy made me fan of B&N. So, I wanted the B&N free version instead of the Amazon Kindle's version. Kindle's free version is much much better.
