Quo Vadis

Gelesen von David Leeson

(4,75 Sterne; 74 Bewertungen)

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)

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

Life Changing

(5 Sterne)

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

Good book, Great reader

(4,5 Sterne)

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.

Quite the epic!

(5 Sterne)

Ditto everything the other reviewers said. It's a well-told story (albeit with a heavy Catholic slant and a tone of mysticism I didn't care for), great characterization, and an engaging plot. The reader is excellent, sound quality very good. If you liked The Last Days of Pompeii, you'll like this.

An Amazing Epic

(5 Sterne)

The author's descriptive power transports the reader to First Century Rome in the days of Nero. It is an unforgettable journey. I am very grateful to David Leeson for undertaking this project. With the many monologues the audio book could have been rendered tedious in less-capable hands. Thank you!

Randall

(5 Sterne)

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.

(4,5 Sterne)

The reader did a fantastic job! The book gave a very informative view of what Ancient Rome and early Christianity looked like. And it was very entertaining to boot.

Superb

(5 Sterne)

This recording of Quo Vadis by David Leeson is outstanding. This is a very long novel yet Mr Leeson's readings are consistently excellent. Thank you.
