READ & DOWNLOAD è Arthur George Eir fates become inextricably connectedIn Arthur George Julian Barnes explores the grand tapestry of late Victorian Britain to create his most intriguing and engrossing novel ye. I find reading about real life miscarriages of justice very disturbing particularly when they occur in a country with a well developed legal system in which the rule of law prevails They make interesting reading though and this account of an early 20th century miscarriage of justice is no exception It s made all the interesting by the involvement of the Arthur of the title Arthur Conan Doyle The story should be better known given its importance to the English legal system and therefore to legal systems based on the English systemWhile Arthur Conan Doyle needs no introduction I d not heard of the George of the title previously He is George Edalji an Anglo Indian solicitor and son of a clergyman The narrative in alternating chapters follows the lives of both men from childhood onwards It s a well written novel that in content although not in style reads like non fiction As far as I can gather from some cursory research on the interwebs Barnes got the history right Not much can be said about that history without going into spoilers Suffice to say the miscarriage of justice sees Edjali convicted or a crime he didn t commit and Doyle involved in a campaign to exonerate him Those aspects of the narrative were uite enough to ensure that the lawyer in me remained interested However this is also in effect a biography of Conan Doyle I ve read my fair share of Sherlock Holmes stories but I m not a die hard fan and I wouldn t have gone out of my way to read a conventional biography of their author There was a section in the middle of the book dealing if I remember correctly with Conan Doyle s marital woes that I found less then totally compelling but still interesting enough I ve not read Barnes before although I ve always meant to I liked his prose a lot I also liked the narrative structure the evocation of time and place and the manner in which the two central characters are developed However in this case it s the book for me rather than the author While I don t see myself racing off to read Barnes entire oeuvre I very much enjoyed reading this sample of it Anyone with an interest in the legal system will probably have a similar reaction
