Scle – his left eyelid – he began dictating this remarkable story painstakingly spelling it out letter by letterHis book offers a haunting harrowing look inside the cruel prison of locked in syndrome but it is also a triumph of the human spir. This book involves 28 short stories or you can say pieces of memory from the former editor of French Elle magazine Jean Dominiue Bauby who was permanently paralyzed after a severe stroke His only way of communication was by blinking his left eye and that was how he patiently spelled this book out As he put it and I firmly believed in him that his main task was to compose the first of these bedridden travel notes so that I shall be ready when my publisher's emissary arrives to take my dictation letter by letter In my head I churn over every sentence ten times delete a word add an adjective and learn my text by heart paragraph by paragraph There was no particular order for the topics in this book nor was there any certain connection among them What made it precious for me is how detailed Jean Dominiue depicted of what he saw what he hearddespite his serious hearing disorder and most important of all what he felt He was suddenly forced to embrace his new life after the misfortune but it's rather impressive that he didn't think so sometimes Although I could feel the helplessness in his voice and the eagerness of freedom when he was comfined to an unfamiliar wheelchair just like a diving bell waiting to be opened up there were times he really enjoyed himself in spite of his disability In a nutshell he chose to be a carefree butterfly making his spirit live on forever without burden and pain What's this bookhis words made me realize how blissful I am because I can live out loud do whatever I want go wherever I desire talk and hang out with friendsfamily whenever we're availableetc Therefore he kind of reminded us to know and cherish such blessing since we never know how precious it is until we lose it Lastly The Diving Bell and the Butterfly is definitely a must read in life and I highly recommend it to everyone The original version is in French Le Scaphandre et le Papillon and I found the translation one captured his meanings pretty well By the way I can't put an end to this review without uoting something worth valuing so here it is Capturing the moment these small slices of life these small gusts of happiness move me deeply than all the rest

Words flow like the images and emotions of poetry One thought leads to another The rambling mind touches like a butterfly just long enough to draw the essence from a story and then moves fluidly to another Jean Dominiue Bauby's body was an immobile weighty shell; the diving bell his perfect simile Yet in his head he roved the world and composed the words that would let us in Intent on looking for the cure to let him move again he moves forward in his final words We must keep looking I'll be off now and six months later he was dead
