Publisher's Summary

Written over a century ago and translated into over 50 languages, this masterpiece of historical fiction is one of the best-selling novels in history and the inspiration for the MGM motion picture of 1951. An epic of love and courage in Nero's time, it illustrates the conflict of moral ideas within the Roman Empire at the dawn of Christianity.

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.

    "Great story but... need different reader"
    Any additional comments?

    I've grown spoiled by the quality of great narrators in my Audible library. Unfortunately, Mr. Davidson's narration of Quo Vadis? did not work for me. His reading style seemed more suited for lecturing at a University.

    Story
    "So disappointed. I really want to hear the story."
    What disappointed you about Quo Vadis?

    I can't understand the narrator. I kept having to rewind sometimes 3-4 times to try to understand what he said. Heard this was a great book. I want to hear the story. Wish I could find it narrated by someone without accent.


    What didn’t you like about Frederick Davidson’s performance?

    Accent.

    "Narrator Killed this one"

    There is no flow, the tonality given to people is just so unbelievable, I mean the Tribune( military hero) sounds like my 12 year old daughter when she whines about her curfew

    "narration is poor"

    The narration is poorly performed. Could not get through more than about an hour of the book.
