Adventures of Arthur Conan Doyle by Russel Miller

The book The Adventures of Arthur Conan Doyle tells about the author of brilliant novels and short stories, who was also a doctor, an amateur croquet, and a public figure. His life was no less exciting than the life of his favorite character Sherlock Holmes. The heritage of Doyle includes a huge number of letters which he wrote to relatives and friends over the years. These letters contain his hopes, successes, disappointments, and thoughts. Russell Miller, a well-known journalist and writer, was the first to dive into previously unknown private correspondence of Conan Doyle. These materials formed the basis of the writer’s biography. Miller creates an unusually lively and charming image of this remarkable writer and the time in which he had to write.

Biography of Conan Doyle by Miller is a very interesting book, which is different from ordinary biographies. The author refers to the classic writer with great reverence and admiration for his literary gift, but at the same time it does not prevent him from writing openly about the errors of Doyle and almost openly say that in his old age, Sir Arthur, apparently, was a little crazy.

The book is written in accessible and excellent language. Over 475 pages the reader lives the life of Doyle, which was very busy. Together with Arthur we study at a closed Catholic college and the University of Edinburgh, along with him we are going on a trip on the whaling ship, with him we are defending the gate of Portsmouth, with him we are trying to get a medical practice, and, finally, with him we begin to write the first works. We get used to the role of the brilliant creator of Sherlock Holmes, and diligently try to understand why Doyle himself hated the character so much, which provided him immortality. We lead an active political life, taking part in the Boer War, help investigate case of Slater, and then something happens and we become interested in spiritualism.

It might be a little unpleasant to read the last chapters of the book, because it is hard to perceive how the creator of Sherlock Holmes could start proving the existence of fairies, how he could argue that he talked to a Babylon clerk, who warned him about the imminent end of the world, and how he could spend the last decades of his life on endless lectures that spiritualism is a bright future for people.

It seems that sometimes genius really shouldn’t live for long, at least in order to leave a perfect image in the eyes of posterity.

No matter what kind of last year of Conan Doyle were, we still love him for the creation of Sherlock Holmes.
