I have been curious about Samuel Pepys for some years now so I got this book to find out what all the fuss was about. The audio quality is unfortunate; format 2 is the best that can be downloaded. The sound is so fuzzy that I can hardly understand the narration when I play the disks in my car (where I listen to nearly all of my Audible books as I make the daily commute to work). What I can hear, however, makes me hungry for more. The content is rich, detailed and full of references to people, events and literature contemporary to the 1660s but not so well known in 2007(naturally enough:it's a daily diary which can hardly be expected to spell out those things which were well-known or obvious to the writer). Consider this book as an appetizer. If it whets your appetite, as it has mine, you'll probably want to go to the nearest public library for one of the unabridged volumes - but make sure it's annotated!
