Born in Newgate Prison and abandoned soon after, Moll Flanders is searching for a secure place in society. Her desire to belong propels her into all kinds of trouble from numerous marriages, bigamy and incest to theft. Charting her progress from an innocent but determined young girl to a contentedly resigned elderly woman, Defoe's novel casts a light on the splendours and iniquities of life in 18th century England and America. It is a tale of sin and repentance, portrayed through a rich pageant of comical scenes.

    " This is not one of my favorites; however, I am amazed at this woman's savvy, endurance, and tenacity in the 17th Century, not the 21st!! "

    " Moll Flanders is an interesting story told badly. Admittedly, the novel as a form was still in its infancy, but it is tiresome to read a story full of reported speech, where no character is named unless the author can absolutely not avoid it, and where semicolon-spliced run-on sentences are the norm. "

    " Loved this when I read it in college. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Bridget | 2/5/2014

    " I'm not sure I've ever read a book that seemed to scream "Cautionary morality tale" as loud as this one did. I found parts of it interesting because of some of the insights to the setting, such as the existence of homes where women could go to during their "confinement" for care and birthing and delivery. Much of it was too over-the-top to really enjoy. As a man, Defoe also lacks a certain credibility for writing in first person for this character. He really didn't come across as genuine or believable. "
