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.

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

Scott Brick, you did it again!

What made the experience of listening to By the Rivers of Babylon the most enjoyable?

Scott knows how to read these books- i have a feeling he is part John Corian.

Who was your favorite character and why?

How could John not be your favorite, sarcastic, rude, sexy, brave and more

Faithful DeMille follower deeply disappointed

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Scott Brick?

This Scott Brick narration was whiny to the point of distracting. I'm a Scott Brick fan, but this one left me cold.

Any additional comments?

I tried to listen to this book twice, but didn't get past part 1 either time. Clearly not DeMille's best effort in my opinion.

Comment on the vocabulary used.

Enough using the Lord's name in vain! We were disappointed that Mr. DeMille could not find better vocabulary! We are hoping his other books are better or we will need to move on to another author.
