In this, the final part of the Diary, Pepys is well established in his post in the Navy office but troubled by failing eyesight, which eventually leads him to stop writing his journal.
Much of this portion of the diary is about his affair with his wife's servant, Deb Willett, which took up much of his energy throughout this period of his life. But we are also treated to his customary vivid portrait of London life in all its rich variety.

Branagh's reading is delightful but it doesn't make up for the yawning gaps in Pepy's life that are so obvious in this abridged version.
