GetItem Method (getItemRequest)
AmazonAmazon.DynamoDBv2AmazonDynamoDBGetItem(GetItemRequest) Did this page help you?   Yes   No    Tell us about it...

The GetItem operation returns a set of attributes for the item with the given primary key. If there is no matching item, GetItem does not return any data.

GetItem provides an eventually consistent read by default. If your application requires a strongly consistent read, set ConsistentRead to true . Although a strongly consistent read might take more time than an eventually consistent read, it always returns the last updated value.

Dictionary<string, AttributeValue> key = new Dictionary<string, AttributeValue>
    { "Author", new AttributeValue { S = "Mark Twain" } },
