I really enjoyed reading Purely By Accident. More than once, I kept thinking I knew what was going to happen next, and I was delighted to be wrong most of the time. I was engaged by each character and cared what happened to each of them. The characters are interesting, and the story is captivating. I thought the author wrapped it up nicely, AND I would like to read more stories about those people (hint, hint).

I loved this book!
Purely By Accident captured my attention from the first chapter and I devoured it in two days. The story is intriguing and the twist and turns kept me turning page after page, watching for the next surprise. The characters are well developed and (some) quite likable. The technical parts are simply explained without confusing the reader and the story moves at a brisk pace. Jim Beegle has written a smart, exciting story with mystery and suspense told through characters so realistic that you almost expect to see them at the corner deli. An excellent freshman entry for a writer with a heart for storytelling and a head for intrigue.
Great book! A page-turner that left me wanting more. Anxiously awaiting his next book. Move over Patterson, Baldacci, and Sandford and make room on the shelf.
I didn't even know the boy could read much less write a whole book. Without any pictures even, imagine that. I would say it's an ok book for a human. Personally, I think it needs more cats and a lot more naps, but it'll keep you from falling asleep in the litter box.

Gripping suspense smooth delivery. It seems the Author has walked the walk and lived in the shoes of the protagonist.
I highly recommend this book to lovers of suspense and plots that make you wonder “how in the world will he get out of this mess”.
