Présentation de l'éditeur

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.

HASH(0x964bb360) étoiles sur 5 Love, War, History--Another Demille Thriller 22 août 2000
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
Nelson Demille consistently surprises me with his research, knowledge and laser paced action in his books. He just has a way of drawing me in to his characters with their transitional dialouge. I want to know them, care about them, and of course despise horrific villains. And as for action adventures, well, let's just say he moves a plot around like a Chinese acrobat with an inner ear problem!
In "By The Rivers of Babylon", we meet an extensive group of characters who begin a journey of peace for the Middleast. Two Concordes take off from Lod airport. A mysterious Lear jet invades their flying space. Not known to the pilots and passengers is the fact that a rebel Palestinian guerilla, Rish , has had bombs planted in the tails of each bird as they were being built a year before. Leading to an exciting kidnapping and forced landing.
What I enjoyed the most in this compelling book were the strategies of war. How different eras as well as nations handled nightime invasions for example. And how one must do anything to survive--anything. This seemed to be a pre-cursor to "The Lions Game" by DeMille. Similar themes, however, I was intrigued with the setting of Babylon. The history involved, the colorful descriptions of the Euphrates river, how Mesopatamia had been a glorious city and it's ironic downfall.
Highly recommended reading for the adventure lover.

HASH(0x964b5d08) étoiles sur 5 A Powerhouse. Emotionally trying and finely crafted 29 novembre 1999
Par Owen Ryan - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
Nelson Demille is a master. By the Rivers of Babylon is the most amazing thriller I have ever read. Once you are gripped by the plight of the passengers to the UN Conference you will never let them go. Their lives and deaths are visualized in full. Demille has given America a treat that should be enjoyed by all. It is Tom Clancy with the elitist confusing technology. It is James Patterson if he ever took a writing class. It is a gem.

HASH(0x964b5c24) étoiles sur 5 Fast paced, action filled and hopefully not timeless 19 août 2004
Par Michael Beverly - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
DeMille became one of my favorite authors with just one book, The Gold Goast, and oddly enough, that book is quite a bit different from the main genre of the rest of his work which tends to be more military/police/spy type thrillers. After reading several of his recent books, I finally got a chance to go back many years and read this one.

I'll get my one main complaint out of the way, it's the fact that the book has a plethora of characters and I wasn't ever really sure who I was rooting for specifically. As it turns out, the protagonist if you will, is probably the group as a whole, they banded together and survived as a group (even though some of the characters were lost). I guess I can accept that, although I prefer the strong male leads that dominate all the subsequent works by DeMille that I've read.

Even though written nearly three decades ago, not much has changed in world politics and this novel could probably take place in reality tomorrow with only a few minor changes. I often wonder if world security forces go through fiction, after all, Tom Clancy wrote about a pilot flying a jet plane into the White House and later when it was tried for real, everyone acted like "nobody could have ever imagined that". In any case, this book and DeMille's The Lions Game, both have airplanes being terrorized in different and unique ways, I hope someone is taking notice.

As for the why I give this book a strong recommendation, and why I'm sticking with five stars in spite of my complaint, it's a page turner, fast paced and well written, it has military science, love, war, hate and a whole lot more.

HASH(0x964b57bc) étoiles sur 5 You Won't Put this Book Down! 22 janvier 2000
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
Demille is the Best and in my opinion this book along with Cathedral, Word of Honor and Gold Coast are his best works. I could not put this book down. On an interesting note, I met Mr. Demille at a book signing and he told me that he himself is not a fan of this book. Interesting! A great read

HASH(0x964b5954) étoiles sur 5 Number 1 On A Scale of 1 to 10! 9 juin 2000
Par Melvin Hunt - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
One of my favorite all time books. An excellent plot with oustanding characters. After being forced to land by Arab terrorists an Israeli peace delegation is forced to survive unsurmountable odds. One jet full of the peace conference attendees is exploded in midair. The second jet then lands in Iraq. From there on out the arts of survival begins. The Israeli delegation fights for their very lives. It is a tremendous battle against tremendous odds. Some of the tactics employed by the Israelis are very good. The Isrealis show that the strong will indeed survive. An outstanding book by DeMille.Buy this book and keep it under lock and key.
