reflection on the diving bell and the butterfly

After reading the intresting and amazing memoir by Jean-Dominique Bauby a man who had a stroke and know is a quatrapoligic. I was quite amazed at how he was handling everyday life and how he wrote the book. I personally dont like the book but i also don't hate it at the same time, you could say im neutral but leaning towards not liking it. I found it interesting how he was not self pittying and complaining about everything but he took a positive aproach and made the best out of what he was able to do. I find it sad that a writer like him could go from a nice life and all of a sudden have his life change in the way it did for him. He was an incredable man that did somehting i probably couldn't do.
