Not a blog really - more like a record of what I've read and what I think about it.
Probably not too interesting to anyone besides me :-)

The Diving Bell and the Butterfly (Jean-Dominique Bauby)
Well, how can you not appreciate this work? An amazing triumph for a person who was mentally aware but completely paralyzed. I can't imagine having the will or wherewithall to express myself at all, let along to express myself this well.
In case you're not aware, it's about former editor of French Elle who has a massive stroke and then suffers from "Locked In" syndrome. Of course, it's an A. Loved it and read it in one night.
