He practiced medicine and, in 1900, volunteered as a medic in Africa during the Boer War he was later knighted for his service. Doyle lost a son, two brothers in law, and two nephews to the Great War. He is remembered for the Sherlock Holmes stories and his novel The Lost World.

The transcriber has made a huge error and as a result, the text is formatted in such a way that the lines don't match the shape of the kindle page. You can still read the story, but it is a bit difficult and can take some work. It doesn't seem to matter what you do to alter the font size, orientation etc. the text still comes out wrong, with some lines of only a few words, every other line.
As it's free, you won't lose anything if you decide to download it, but if I had paid for this, I would be requesting my money back as it really is not satisfactory. There are other books, and there are other sources for this particular book and you would be better off with almost anything else.
For what it's worth, I have contacted customer services over this; they haven't confirmed that the book with be re-done, but there is a possibility that they will sort it out. For that reason, it might be worth seeing if they have corrected the issue.
However such is the strength of the writing and the absorbing quality of the story that you may, after a while, find yourself able to overcome the constant line breaks after every sentence, or at least become accustomed to them. It's a free story and not very long, so if you can manage the formatting it's in your favour.
Formatting not withstanding this is yet another fantastic tale of Sherlock Holmes and his faithful companion Dr. Watson.
