    Peter and Evangeline have learned of an early, annotated draft of the Constitution that could forever change America's history - and its future. When word gets out about it, it launches a frenzied search, as both sides of the partisan machine. While battling politicians from both sides of the debate, Peter and Evangeline must get to the document first, because they know that if the wrong people find it, they will burn it, stripping the nation of its constitutional moorings.

    Overall

    This is an interesting book in many ways. If you like history - and I mean full, unedited hitory then this book is for you. It has an ineresting premise that is dragged on for hours and hours going through seemingly every year starting from the founding fathers to today. I kept asking myself - what is the big deal about the lost constitution? It's a rough draft, but the characters seemed to think it would change everything we know about history.

    I really wanted to like this book and I do to a point, but it became my life's goal just to finish the book after getting to part three. The last hour/hour and a half is very good, which was a bonus.

    I understand what the author tried to do, however it just didn't work for me due to the time commitment I had to put into it.

    Bottom Line: Too many characters that get all smashed together. Too many generations to go through. Too many hours for this book. Godo attempt by William Martin, but just too much of a book.

    Fans of The Twilight Saga will be enthralled by this riveting story of Bree Tanner, a character first introduced in Eclipse, and the darker side of the newborn vampire world she inhabits. In another irresistible combination of danger, mystery, and romance, Stephenie Meyer tells the devastating story of Bree and the newborn army as they prepare to close in on Bella Swan and the Cullens, following their encounter to an unforgettable conclusion.

    Jeanie Jenkins says: "Surprisingly involving and touching"
    "Nice way to fill in some gaps"
    Overall

    I liked this short story and thought it filled in enough blanks to make it worth reading. Nothing stunning, but a good read.

    ESPN's star comedic duo, Mike Golic and Mike Greenberg, bring their radio and TV sports shtick to the listener in this hilarious audiobook, which includes their definitive list of rules to live by. This is for all ESPN devotees, all Mike and Mike fans, and fans of audiobooks like Dennis Miller's Rants and Tony Kornheiser's As Bald as I Want to Be.

    Tom says: "A Real Disappointment"
    "Just OK - the show is better"
    Overall

    You really appreciate Mike and Mike on the radio after hearing this book. They do a tremendous job each and every morning, however their rendition of this book was a little dull. This is the first audiobook that I felt the readers were actually reading from a script - you could tell the two are not used to doing this. What makes them great is there honest, off the cuff reaction to each other's thoughts and, of course, these thoughts were a little forced.

    It's a quick book (only a little over 4 hours) and it comes at a good price (around $8 for members) so it is a nice, quick read. I would say it was worth the purchase, but don't expect Mike and Mike to sound like Mike and Mike.
