A great read, very enjoyable; I read a few pages at bed-time. I have read abridged versions and wanted more detail, to see what I was missing and I do think it is worth reading the complete Pepys. However, I do wish they would put the english translation to Pepys's french/spanish passages; don't know why they assume everyone knows french/spanish.........but of course you get the gist of what he is up to!!
