Thank you for your question.  The answer to this will vary based on which database you're using on our A-Z list of databases.

For most of our EBSCO databases, it should look pretty similar.  Here is an example of searching for book reviews for Neil Gaiman's book 'American Gods' in Academic Search Complete:

After searching, narrow results to book reviews by checking the box on the left side of the screen.  See the area circled in red below:

Another database you may be using is Literary Reference Center. After you put your search terms in (I used 'Neil Gaiman AND American Gods') and hit search, you can click the tab that says reviews to see book review results.

I hope this helps. Some books may have more reviews than others so you may have to try several databases to find a good book review.
