Backyard searching

We’ve all had an exchange like this but mine happened yesterday in conversation with some guests during a BBQ in my backyard.

“So the book was by the same person who wrote that movie; the actress in it is the one with the really high irritating voice. It had a great beginning with all these people wandering through a cornfield. I think the guy writes screenplays but this was a crime novel. It was based on a real crime I think. I just gave the paperback to somebody. You should get it.”

One of the other guests, a networked information professional, remarked “So much for the simple search box.” Indeed. And yes, we finally figured it out.
