the sea inside post #2
The sea inside and the diving bell and the butterfly were both very different but had some similarities. Some similarities were that Bauby and Ramon both were quadrapeligics and they both were stuck in beds with the occational wheel chair adventure. But the biggest similarity was that they both wrote a book about their lives. But there were more differences than similarities. Bauby became a quadrapeligic because of a major stroke but Ramon became one because of diving into shallow water and hitting his head and neck on the bottom of the ocean. They could control different parts of there bodies. Bauby could control his neck some and his left eye lid. Ramon could control his neck and everything above it perfectly. Bauby wanted to live but Ramon wanted to die.
