Sea Inside Post 2
The Sea Inside and The Diving Bell and the Butterfly have many similarities and differences that depict the likeness of the characters in each book. There are many similarities between The Sea Insides and The Diving Bell and the Butterfly. First both Ramon and Jean Dominique-Bauby don’t enjoy life as a quadriplegic and both reminisce about their previous lives. They both also have to rely on others to take care of them on a day to day basis. It hurts Bauby and Ramon both to see the affect they have on their loved ones after their accidents. Lastly they both wrote books during their time as a quadriplegic before both dying. There are also many differences between The Sea Inside and The Diving Bell and the Butterfly. In The Sea Inside Ramon can talk to his family and care takes to communicate which is far superior to Bauby’s situation where he can only blink for communication. Also in The Diving Bell and the Butterfly Jean Dominique-Bauby try to live out his life as long as possible to be with his family and loved one. Where as in The Sea Inside Ramon wishes to be put out of the misery of being quadriplegic.
