"...and God forgive me, I do still see that my nature is not to be quite conquered, but will esteem pleasure above all things;"- Samuel Pepys, Diary, 9 March 1966 Loved it.

This book I will keep for life, fascinating
Finally got through with this! It about 3000 pages long, seemed a lot longer. I think this is the longest it ever took me to get through a book, almost 3.5 months. But it was worth it, it was quite the interest work. We get an eyewitness view of the Restoration, the attack of the Plague in London, the Great Fire, and war with the Dutch. We also get a glimpse int othe shenanigans of the royal gentry and Pepys himself.
A very big collection of everyday life of Mr. Pepys in the 1600s. Not terribly interesting but has a good description of his level of lifestyle. Not the richest, but involved in politics and other social events. Will not be reading the complete book as it is a lot of repetition of his daily life.
not this version
Terrible read - 1*I abandoned this book because this book consists of a repetitive structure which is actually painful to read. I was meant to research Samuel Pepys and thought this diary would be a good idea. No - the annotations are long, unnecessary and just a dead weight to this book. I really don't recommend and will definitely do my research via the internet. I think I made it to chapter two but that was really disappointing as nothing happened. No exciting turn of events, no Great fire of London, nothing!So disappointing.
I first read this in high school and I did not have the experience or understanding to really appreciate it. Much later I began reading passages from it elsewhere and fell in love with it!
Excellent read, loved the history and information you get from this diary. I would recommend this to anyone interested in English History
