Quo Vadis brims with passion and life as it explores one of the turning points in history.

Where does Quo Vadis rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

at the top third,, I am sure I will listen to it again some time


Who was your favorite character and why?

Petronus, the aloofnobleman


What does Frederick Davidson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

His performance has been criticised. In my opinion his performance suits the main character Petronus very well. It may take some time to get used to his style, but actually after a while I became very appreciative of the performance


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

If I say it would spoil the stotry, right?
