This short glimpse into the life of Samuel Pepys, was most enjoyable. I ended up so interested in the subject, that I got onto the internet, and read more about him and things such as the medical profession of the day. (samuel pepys had a kidney stone removed, and it was quite horrendous! although it isnt covered in this audible) So much history, and he was right there.
The reader was also fantastic.
