I also read this for a college history class and thought it was an excellent insight into a more common man's life, for which we have so little information. It's not boring; it is just a journal written by a man from a time in which the language was different, and he wrote about the simple and mundane aspects of his life (like we all do in our journals). But through his words you can learn about what it was like to be someone in 17th century London who had a skill and trade, but was not nobility. I read this in 1993, and it still comes to mind from time to time, which is why I decided to look it up tonight. It's not Hollywood. It's evidence and reality and a unique source of information.

I am a college student, required to read this book for a final in one of my classes. I find it completely uninteresing reading. It is written in the most boaring manner possible. The class I have to read it for is a History of England course. I love the class and find it very interesting - but a warning to all you teachers and professers out there looking for reading for your students, this is a particularly bad choice. I would not reccomend this book to anybody who is not thinking of becoming a historian.
