I read the book simply to experience the author's feelings. In my research on the subject of coma, I stumbled to this book. I am interested in the subject because my older sister is in a coma. I am amazed by Jean's great achievement in writing this book. For a non-French person like, I learned some brief lessons on the French language, history and geography. What a moving experience!
