Conversations with Arthur Conan Doyle by Arthur Conan Doyle, Simon Parke



4 of 5 stars  ****

Conversations is a most interesting interview with, and autobiography of, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. The autobiography is directed by the interviewer, Simon Parke, so it is not comprehensive and crosses into the category of biography, as well. The Audiobook does cover prominent events in Sir Arthur's life as foretold in his own words. Most of the discussion centers around the controversy of Sir Arthur's religious and philosophical convictions; namely, his belief in contacting the spirits of those who have died. Regardless of the clamor that surrounds this man, his command and presentation of the English language is eloquent and thoughtful in conveying his message with his unique style.
