    Marcus, a Roman officer in Nero's army, risks his career, his family, and even his life when he falls in love with a Christian woman named Callina. In order to win Callina's love, Marcus must come to understand the true meaning of her religion, even as Rome sinks under the excesses of Nero and Christians are thrown to the lions. Quo Vadis brims with passion and life as it explores one of the turning points in history.

    I don't understand some of the other reviews ! Not only is Frederick Davidson THE best narrator on Audible he also does a perfect job in reading this book. There can be hardly anything said about the story for it is known to most of us, and may it even be from the picture made in in the 60ies, starring the unforgetable Sir Peter Ustinov. The criticism about the "ancient ttranslation" is not very well founded. Sure, there are a lot of "thou" and "thee" but this makes the story more interesting and does not affect the fluency of the book. I read this book many years ago and this "audio delicasy" brought back old memories. All in all it was extremely enjoyable listening to this great tale.
