Review; The Great Fire of London by Samuel Pepys

A little while back I read The Great Fire of London by Samuel Pepys and today I'll post the review.

Description from Goodreads

‘With one’s face in the wind you were almost burned with a shower of Firedrops . . .’

A selection from Pepys’s startlingly vivid and candid diary. Originally written in code, Pepys’s diary includes his unforgettable eyewitness account of the 1666 Fire.[ Samuel Pepys (1633–1703) ]

Little Black Classics celebrates Penguin’s 80th birthday, introducing 80 works from the classics.


My Thoughts on the Book
It does contain entries about the plague, the Dutch-Anglo War and The Great Fire of London and even though it is an historical document, it doesn't stop it from being a bit boring at time.
