4.0 out of 5 stars The real Mar Adentro 27 Feb. 2006
By Maria E. Pineiro - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If you saw Mar Adentro and want to know more about Ramon Sampedro, this book allows you to meet him in his own words. At times funny, sad happy, abgry and very human. It should be available in English for those who cannot read Spanish.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Greater Understanding 18 Dec. 2005
By Lisa Serman - Published on
Format: Paperback
I am a 34 year old woman who only speaks a few words of spanish.

After watching the movie "The Sea Inside", I had to buy Ramon Sampedro's book - Letters from Hell. I could not find an english version of this book so I took it upon myself to learn spanish and translate Ramon's words.

All I can say is -- WOW.

This book is so heartfelt and honest. It is pure poetry. Ramon's will to die was truly the only thing he looked forward to. Life for him had no dignity in his state of being. What he argued is that The right to die should be a right and an individual choice.

I am forever changed after reading this book and watching the movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Memoria Viva y desde el Infierno..... 9 Aug. 2005
By C. M Tye - Published on
Format: Paperback
Este hombre sufre un accidente y como consecuencia queda paraplejico.

En este documento narra desde el momento de el accidente hasta sus ultimos dias, unas paginas son realmente enternecedoras, otras de una infinita tristeza y a veces te sorprende con un poco de alegria.

Este libro esta basado en las cartas que el propio Sampero escribio.... con la boca, dada su condicion fisica era de la manera que el escribia, y dentro de las cartas describe su esfuerzo al escribir,,,

en fin es un libro que si vale la pena leer y ponernos en los zapatos de todos aquellos que estan vivos solo de cerebro y su lucha de alguno de ellos por su derecho de poner fin a sus vidas.

gran historia
