Publisher's Summary

Lod Airport, Israel: Two Concorde jets take off for a U.N. conference that will finally bring peace to the Middle East. Covered by F-14 fighters, accompanied by security men, the planes carry warriors, pacifists, lovers, enemies, dignitaries - and a bomb planted by a terrorist mastermind.

Suddenly they're forced to crash-land at an ancient desert site. Here, with only a handful of weapons, the men and women of the peace mission must make a desperate stand against an army of crack Palestinian commandos - while the Israeli authorities desperately attempt a rescue mission. In a land of blood and tears, in a windswept place called Babylon, it will be a battle of bullets and courage, and a war to the last death.

©2003 Nelson DeMille (P)2010 Hachette Audio

    Audible allows me to fill my mind with something so much better than TV.

    "Worst NDM book"

    I love his stuff, have probably read, our listened to, more than a dozen of his books. The story of this one is so far fetched, I could hardly get myself to listen to it.

    Nevermind, the rest of his stuff is great.

    Story
    "Satisfying listen."

    Superb narration. The end became a little over the top but it was a great education. I suggest you write down the names of the characters in the first few chapters or you may be befuddled by who is who and where they fit in. I've loved almost all of the author's books.

    "Entertaining"

    DeMille can be hugely entertaining. This is a good, not excellent effort on his part. That said, there's a good story in this book and it comes out at a good pace. No slow, dull parts, which makes for an entertaining listen.

    "Excellent book. Best book all year,"

    This is an excellent book. The narration by Dick Hill is spot on. The story has a lot of interesting turns and the reader will not be disappointed,

    "Insight"
    Would you consider the audio edition of By the Rivers of Babylon to be better than the print version?

    Given the hours I spend in the car a week. This is the only option.


    Any additional comments?

    Great insight into the Jewish history and Israelite DeMille does a great job on his books

    Good story, a bit far fetched, but lovable.
