Written in a time when criminal biographies enjoyed great success, Daniel Defoe’s Moll Flanders details the life of the irresistible Moll and her struggles through poverty and sin in search of property and power. Born in Newgate Prison to a picaresque mother, Moll propels herself through marriages, periods of success and destitution, and a trip to the New World and back, only to return to the place of her birth as a popular prostitute and brilliant thief. The story of Moll Flanders vividly illustrates Defoe’s themes of social mobility and predestination, sin, redemption and reward. This Modern Library Paperback Classic is set from the 1721 edition printed by Chetwood in London, the only edition approved by Defoe.

I'd seen the movie starring Robin Wright many many years ago. I really like her anyway, but the story itself was a lot of fun and I'd always looked forward to reading the book to see how it measured up. I wasn't disappointed in the least. I suppose reading about Moll's life pattern could get a bit t...

I wanted to like Moll, but found her tiresome. Wish it was different.
