Book Description:

Benny Basilworth makes connections. A rare intellect, he sees things that others don't see and draws conclusions that others completely fail to grasp. He has the kind of mind that can make a person a national sensation on the television gameshow "The Connection Game"– and the kind of mind that can be the target of predators.

Despite his brilliance, Benny and his family find themselves destitute, living in a basement apartment with one tiny window that affords them only the view of the feet of passersby on the street above. It is from this vantagepoint that Benny once again starts making connections. Mad, inconceivable connections. Connections that can change lives . . . and turn the entire world upside down.

​Humorous, surprising, wise, and remarkably perceptive, The Connection Game is a novel unlike any other and one that you are unlikely to forget.

Meet the Author:

S.S. Turner has been an avid reader, writer, and explorer of the natural world throughout his life, which has been spent in England, Scotland, and Australia. He worked in the global fund management sector for many years but realized it didn't align with his values. In recent years, he's been focused on inspiring positive change through his writing as well as trying not to laugh in unfortunate situations. He now lives in Australia with his wife, daughter, two dogs, two cats, and ten chickens. He is the author of one previous novel, Secrets of a River Swimmer.

My Review: 

Author S S Turner has written an interesting tale in their newest release, The Connection Game. It is  the type of book I would not normally read, but I did find it to be an enjoyable read and one to be definitely worth reading. It was fun in meeting Benny Basilworth. I admired him and his determination in making connection that many would not be able to make. There were quite a few scenes that had me laughing out loud, giving me the appreciation that I am able to read it in the privacy of my own home, instead of embarrassing myself out in public. I thought the story of Benny and his family was one that kept me engaged most of the time. And I felt honored to spend a couple of hours with them. I know many other readers will, also, want to read this heartwarming story. It is perfect example why readers should go outside their comfort zone and read something they would not normally read. Overall, I thought this was a pretty good book. 

I am giving The Connection Game four and a half stars. I recommend it for readers who enjoy reading fiction filled with satire and humor. I will be on the lookout for more books from S S Turner to see where else they will take their readers and fans to next. 

I received a paperback copy of The Connection Game from the publisher, but was not required to write a positive review. This review is one hundred percent my own honest opinion.
