Moll Flanders recounts the story of her extraordinary life, from her birth in Newgate prison to her declining years in married prosperity. After being seduced in the home of her adoptive family she lives off her wits and her beauty, as a whore, 'five times a Wife', and a thief, and is eventually transported to Virginia for her crimes. Rich and penitent, Moll reflects on a world that is both good and evil, just as the reader both abhors and admires her. Arguably the first English novel, Moll Flanders is also a romance, its heroine in perpetual search for a lost familial paradise.

Da se Moll nije pokajala, čovjek bi pomislio da je Defoe žena.

I don't think I liked it, but I didn't dislike it. The writing style left more to be desired. Moll just skipped from event to event, a little dialogue here and there. It just seemed really long-winded and there was no foreshadowing or plot. More along the lines of what Moll can do in the present mom...
