There's a comment on the back of the novel that says it's remarkable. I tend to agree although it's not remarkable in the sense you would say a book is.

What is remarkable about this novel is how it came into being. You can't help but think about this man lying there being unable to move except for one eyelid. You have more of a tendency to appreciate his every word and the effort that went into it knowing how he dictated it. For those that don't know about Bauby, he had Locked in Syndrome and was only able to communicate via blinking which ” read more
