Can't Beat the Price30 januari 2016 - Gepubliceerd op Amazon.com
This is a "public domain" release. It's the late Victorian version, well academically documented (sometimes to readibility's harm), and it does NOT include the "juicy bits" of Pepys' various amorous adventures. It does, however, tell you everything about Jacobean England you could want to know. Court intrigue, how "news" travels, living conditions, weather, diet, counterfiting, public hangings, nothing is left unreported. Pepys is revealed to be a social climber, a "management consultant" of early days, and something (justifiably) of a hypocondriac. Almost a page-turner, there's a lot here -- over 2500 pages of it. Since there's no plot, you can pick it up at any moment and just as easily put it down. Those wanting to understand "the mind of the English" will want to have made at least one trip through this ten year slice of England at the end of the Seventeenth Century.

Pepys was one of the best diarists ever21 juni 2011 - Gepubliceerd op Amazon.com
This is the complete version of Pepys Diary, and you will encounter many days and time frames when he might just as well have said "nothing happened". However, you will also find such things as an eyewitness account of the Great Fire of London of 1666, and much discussion of Pepys personal life, with some intimate details. One thing to like about diaries is, that while they may be in one way or another biased about a particular subject (political, religious, whatever), they are honest accounts, first hand, and not speculation by someone writing decades or even centuries after the fact. There is no influence by modern self censoring or political correctness. You may choose not to read all of this, there is a lot of material here, but even reading excerpts will probably give a glimpse into 17th century life in Britain.

A Lengthy Boring Diary9 september 2018 - Gepubliceerd op Amazon.com
Good read for British navy history buffs interested in Pepys era. Not enough meat for most though amongst all.the details. Inconsequential meetings, culinary details, and way too many 'and so to bed' endings for each day. Some ambitious sort could edit this down to the useful nuggets and eliminate over 90% of the text making it a far more palatable read. I know I will never finish this read as it is a huge amount of text and I'm just not that interested.
Important historically, but Pepys is a serial womanizer!28 september 2017 - Gepubliceerd op Amazon.com
This diary is of extreme historical importance since it outlines ordinary life in Restoration England, including such signal events as the Great Fire of 1666, and the Plague of 1665. What ISN'T so interesting is Pepys' daily routine, which can become repetitive. This man is kissing a pretty girl every time he can get away with it. No wonder he wrote this using code so his wife couldn't read it!

Fun to read15 november 2018 - Gepubliceerd op Amazon.com
Although I didn’t do well in my high school English classes I do now read all the classics more so than my teachers, especially Pepys whose diary is fun to read.
