Overview

The diary which Samuel Pepys kept from January 1660 to May 1669 ...is one of our greatest historical records and... a major work of English literature, writes the renowned historian Paul Johnson. A witness to the coronation of Charles II, the Great Plague of 1665, and the Great Fire of 1666, Pepys chronicled the events of his day. Originally written in a cryptic shorthand, Pepys's diary provides an astonishingly frank and diverting account of political intrigues and naval, church, and cultural affairs, as well as a quotidian journal of daily life in London during the Restoration.

A wonderful and insightful look into the English Restoration period.

I haven't had a chance to read it yet. But the table of contents is a mess with a single letter constituting a whole line. Also the heading line at the top when you are reading the book doesn't display the title but rather a string of numbers and letters, presumably the file name. Since this title was added just a few days ago, hopefully someone will fix this. Until then try the mobireader edition.
