– Bill Fitzhugh, author of A Perfect Harvest.

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.

On the TV show The Connection Game, Benny shows himself as being a very smart and and intelligent person. But as smart as Benny is, he and his family ends up living on a basement apartment. I can’t imagine my only view out of the house is people’s feet as they walk by! It’s hard to believe this smart person ends up like this.

I will have to say, this is a very different book that what I have read before. The writing style is different, but despite all of that, I found myself not wanting to put the book down. The characters are believable and I kinda got attached to them. There is a lot of emotions going on, and at the same time, there’s a lot of humor throughout the book. All in all it turned out to be a pretty good read. Would I encourage others to read? Yes I would. I think this is a book that anyone can enjoy. Since it’s about a game show, those who enjoy this type of TV would certainly enjoy reading this. I’ve giving The Connection Game Four Stars. I hope you will find enjoyment in reading this one!
