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.

I’ll miss him...
... Got quite used to him chatting away about his domestic problems, as well as the important matters of state. Listened to all three volumes read by Kenneth Branagh. It’s strangely comforting at the moment, to listen to someone from so long ago, just living their life with its highs and lows.He’s a relatively privileged man, but it strikes the modern reader how thankful he is for his ‘blessings’ , which include just being alive.
Much lost in abridgement
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.
