First off, I'd never heard of Moll Flanders until, I had determined that I was going to tackle the 1001 Books to Read Before You Die list. If it hadn't been on the list I never would have read this. That said, I can understand why this was included on the list. 1. For the morality issues this presen...

I was certainly not happy to hear Defoe insist at length, in the preface, that he'd taken all the dirty parts out. Defoe was many things as a writer, but "fun" isn't high up the list.Also, check out this sentence: "She asked him if he thought she was so at her last shift that she could or ought to ...
