THE DIARY OF SAMUEL PEPYS Volume III: 1667-1669

by | Read by Leighton Pugh, David Timson

Classics • 36 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1669

[Editors' Note: The following is a combined review of THE DIARY OF SAMUEL PEPYS, Vols. 1-3.]--Not many listeners are so thrilled by the minutiae of seventeenth-century English life that they will want to devote nearly 115 hours to listening to this classic journal--but those who stick it out will be well rewarded. Narrator Leighton Pugh's portrayal of Pepys is sometimes confiding, sometimes whiny, sometimes meditative about religion and politics, but always human. For 10 years, while Pepys was on the margins of the great actions of his time, he recorded every day's events. From the discovery of a new public toilet to the restoration of King Charles II and the Great Fire of London, Pepys wrote down what he saw, and Pugh keeps it all lively. David Timson ably reads the historical introductions to each year. D.M.H. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2015]
