Open Minded by Chloe Seager

When The Mouse Roars

Open Minded by Chloe Seager is a contemporary book exploring relationships. It was an absorbing read that I read mostly in one sitting – pausing only to sleep!

We see that there are many types of relationships – parents, siblings, partners, friends. One size does not fit all. We follow the two main characters and their interactions with others, their work and each other. They meet in unusual circumstances but a friendship develops.

At work, we see the bully in the workplace. Others tiptoe around the bully until one awards evening when – the mouse roars! And the reader applauds.

It is important to be true to oneself. Too often we try to fit into the mold that others, or the world, have created for us. Sooner or later, it will all come crashing down. To your own self be true.

We witness true friendship that loves, cares, celebrates and supports. In contrast there is a partner who doesn’t listen, belittles and rides rough-shod at every opportunity.

There is a sibling love that is steadfast and true. Both give support when it is needed.

All the characters were well drawn and realistic. My responses to them were guided by Chloe Seager’s pen – two characters were definitely not on my ‘like’ list! Whereas the leading ladies were easy to like and empathise with.

Open Minded is a marvellous novel looking at life and relationships.

I received a free copy from the publishers. A favourable review was not required. All opinions are my own.
