review Le Scaphandre et le Papillon

Le Scaphandre et le Papillon characters ✓ 8 ‘Locked in syndrome paralysed from head to toe the patient his mind intact is imprisoned inside his own body unable to speak or move In my case blinking my left eyelid is my only means of communication’In December 1995 Jean Dominiue Bauby edi. I know I will likely get flayed alive for rating this one so low but I just can t see the worship behind itFirst let me say that the writing of the book by someone in such a state is an amazing accomplishment and I dare not take that away from him For those that don t know it was dictated by Jean Dominiue Bauby former editor of the french Elle who had a severe seizure and after damage to his brain stem was diagnosed with locked in syndrome The entire book was dictated letter by letter by the blinking of his left eyeThat said you would think a memoir like this would at least try to present you with a likeable character who has something to say about life Now there were a couple of wistful almost beautiful passages But for the most part I felt a sort of smugness in his attitude especially towards women that just pulled me out of any feelings the book tried to well up in meMaybe I am a terrible person but I just couldn t see why anyone would be so impressed by this book Any time he would start to reel me in one of his thoughts would throw me right out to sea again

Le Scaphandre et le Papillon characters ✓ 8 Tor in chief of French ‘Elle’ and the father of two young children suffered a massive stroke and found himself paralysed and speechless but entirely conscious trapped by what doctors call ‘locked in syndrome’ Using his only functioning mu. Does it take the harsh light of disaster to show a person s true nature The situation is unimaginable waking from a coma to find yourself trapped in your own body able to think clearly and understand what is going on around you but unable to partake in any of what transpires It s called locked in syndrome and Jean Dominiue Bauby finds himself a victim of it when he awakes from a coma following a serious stroke that damaged his brain stem and left him almost totally paralyzed he has only limited facial movements slight control over his neck and use of only one eye It is with this single good eye that Bauby is able to communicate with the world using an excruciatingly slow code of blinking that reuires time energy and a great deal of attention and patience And it is also thanks to this one eye that we have this first hand account dictated by Bauby from his hospital bed recounting the details of his life in the wake of tragedyFar from being restricted by his condition Bauby unleashes the full force of his literary capabilities which were uite estimable considering that he was the editor of French Elle leaving us with a wry touching and deeply affecting memoir that shines with descriptive flourishes and deep insights His perspective in the wake of tragedy is awe inspiring and leaves the reader with a deep respect for his fortitude truly this is a man I would have loved to have had an opportunity to have a conversation with just to try and absorb a small degree of his wisdom and experience The Diving Bell and the Butterfly has moments of regret frustration sadness and aching loneliness but curiously absent are anger and self righteousness Bauby never curses his misfortune but focuses on getting by with the hand he was dealt To read his memoir is to get to know a truly extraordinary man whose spirit refused to be crushed and whose mind and imagination allowed him to survive in the most constrained of circumstances To say that The Diving Bell and the Butterfly is about the triumph of the human spirit is a sorry understatement and does little to pay tribute to an amazing man The Diving Bell and the Butterfly is a slight volume to be sure but it feels wrong to criticize it for that when one considers the conditions under which it was composed And considering that Bauby packs a hefty punch in such a short page count it is well worth the experienceGrade A
