The Diary of Samuel Pepys is one of the most entertaining documents in English history. Written between 1660 and 1669, as Pepys was establishing himself as a key administrator in the naval office, it is an intimate portrait of life in seventeenth-century England, covering his professional and personal activities, including, famously, his love of music, theatre, food, and wine and his peccadilloes. This Naxos AudioBooks production is the world premiere recording of the diary in its entirety. It has been divided into three volumes. Volume II covers some of the most famous passages in the diary. Pepys was there, in London, during the terrible plague of 1665. And he was there during the Great Fire of London the following year, playing an active role in the actual event and the aftermath.

2nd time of reading!
Pepts fire of london
Some one who is bored with life.
I bought this book because I wanted the facts about the Fire of London, this subject was only in the last 3 chapters. The rest of the book was a total waste of time.
I had also bought another Samuel Pepys book ,this has only 4 chapters but fills in all the details missing in the first book
All but the last three chapters.
I feel this book was a waste of time.
