The Search by Nora Roberts

Postby Calypso » Thu Jul 08, 2010 6:55 am

I just finished reading this and I have mixed feelings about it. One the one hand I'm very glad that a mainstream, NYT best selling author did some research on positive training. On the other hand, she lives in Pat Miller's backyard and Pat would have set her straight on a few things!

Anyway, while I don't think it's one of Roberts' best books, it is a nice summer read and there is a cute puppy who brings together the romantic interests, one of whom is a dog trainer who runs Search and Rescue dogs. Honestly, I think I enjoyed the naughty puppy antics the most.

i just saw an ad for this book on tv. the ad mentions SAR, which caught my attention b/c i met a guy the other day who used to train SAR dogs, pretty cool.

i might have to read this. i've certainly had just about all the daytime tv i can stand.

I love her J.D. Robb "...In Death" stuff, this may find itself on my list.

I've seen three or four TV commercials for books lately - when did this start?

I just don't remember seeing book commercials before; maybe I just missed them. I'd rather see TV commercials for books than for prescription drugs, though!

I think it's because almost all publishing houses are now owned by corporate conglomerates that also own other media outlets. Putnam, which publishes Roberts, is owned by MCA, for example. The corporate 'parents' of the publishers have more money to allocate to advertising than the independent publishers ever did.

Here's an interesting list of 'who owns what' in media:

My favorite Roberts books are still the Sisters Island trilogy. :)

Reviving this old thread. I'm reading this book now and enjoying it. It is a nice light read.
