The Sea Inside-Post 2

The Sea Inside Vs. The Diving Bell and the Butterfly.


-Ramon and Bauby both lose the loves of their lives when they obtain locked-in syndrome.
-They both have loving families that are helping them through their difficult situation.
-They are both from places in Europe.


-Ramon was injured doing something physical.
-Bauby became a quadriplegic after he had a stroke.
-Bauby finds the positive things in his situation-trys to make the best of it.
-Ramon just wishes it would all end, or go back to the way it was.

Personally, I think that The Sea Inside was a much more compelling story. I did enjoy seeing both view points of being a quadriplegic. I thought that Ramon had a very powerful story because he was in that situation for such an extended period of time. While Bauby was only a quadriplegic for a few years before his death.
