The Dream That Dared to Become a Man by Angelos Michalopoulos is an unusual narrative between a man and his self-confidence. The book starts off with an introduction by the narrator after which Paul and his “self-confidence” start having a direct talk or “conversation.” The conversation is about Paul’s thoughts, feelings, and emotions and in particular the emotions of fear, doubt, and at times negativity that weigh him down. His self-confidence responds in kind and through this dialogue Paul comes into his own as he realizes that it is all really in his own mind and he is the one in control. The conversation is what makes up the content of the book and leads us, as readers, to self-reflect and become more self-aware in the process.
The Dream That Dared to Become a Man by Angelos Michalopoulos is an interesting and quite unique book in the way the narrative is shaped. In fact, this book explores realms of not only self-awareness and confidence, but also areas of philosophy and psychology. I enjoyed those parts which allow us, as readers, to pause and think about our own lives. I also enjoyed the play of shadow and light and the way it is interwoven with the theme of confidence. Angelos Michalopoulos’ writing style is simple and straightforward and makes for a pleasant read. In the end, The Dream That Dared to Become a Man provides a fresh and unique perspective and I would recommend this book to anyone interested in this subject matter told in a unique way.
