The story of a pagan soldier and a Christian girl in the days and court of Nero. A little intense at times as it describes how life was lived in those days.

This is a very good book about the early Christians in Nero's Rome. Sienkiewicz gives his characters believable dialog and his descriptions are easy to visualize. The subplots were easy to follow even though there were quite a few. The book got better as I was reading it, and I could hardly put it down after I got into the second half.

I am actually in the process of reading this book still. As a 16 year old reading this for school, so far I have found that the writing style is good, and the descriptions were/are very good. It is very interesting about the early Christians.

However, there is a "side story" about Viniticus' great love/passion for Lygia. There are a couple of scenes that are very sensual, and...awkward if you know what I mean. For example, in one spot, it mentions how Lygia would look nude. Things like this kept me from rating it 5 stars, to only 2 and a half.
