Is there a way to search for a particular book review?

Not really sure what you are asking. If you want a review on a specific book, you'd go to that book and the reviews would be on the book details page. If you want reviews by a certain member, you can link to them off of their profile. To search for a random review without knowing the title or the reviewer? Not sure how one would go about that.

Thanks, Melanie.  Sorry I wasn't clearer.   I was interested in finding reviews by PBS members.  When I click on the book, I'm taken to Amazon.  Thanks.

Anita,

If a book has been reviewed by a PBS member, the review will be at the bottom of the book details page.

Also, unlike Amazon, PBS reviews only apply to that specific edition/ISBN, so if you want reviews on a particular book, you may want to look at any/all additional different editions (i.e. hardcover and paperback) to see all the reviews members have written for that book.

If you don't have a book in mind and just want to see reviews on PBS, the home page lists "The Latest Book Reviews" on the bottom left.
