    Dear Diary,Read this rather interesting book comprised of the diary entries of one Mr Samuel Pepys In and of itself, the diary is not altogether engaging It is however quite interesting for its descriptions of the Great Fire of 1666, which burned down much of London Aside from that, what I found truly intriguing was the chance to glimpse a man s daily life as he lived it so many h...

    I ve just been looking at another friend s books and came across this one I knew about this when I was twenty two as I was with someone who just loved this work and he used to read it to me I recall that it was very old fashioned in its style Well, of course, it would be as it was written in 1660 Also the detail was remarkable and the most inane statements sounded so interesting.I wonder how I would like it now Did I just love...

    There s a reason why this simple book, just a guys s diary from the late 1600 s, is one of the classics of world literature More than almost any other book I can think of, Pepys really gives you a powerful feeling of what it would be like to live in another time His accounts of his everyday life are tremendously evocative, and even though he had good material ...
