DISCLAIMER: I have not read English translation, so I do not know how well it is translated, but the original and also the translation I have read is a very remarkable historical book.
Historical-flavored book - okay, but Sienkiewicz is very poor as a historian. Strongly biased, and twists facts to fit his agenda. Quo Vadis itself contained several fictional characters.
