    " With the novel still in its infancy as a genre of literature, Defoe has composed an almost journalistic treatment akin to a biography of a well-known criminal outcast. The author has however given one of the best treatments of character and investigation of moral ambiguity committed to the pages of fiction. It is revealed at the outset that the eponymous heroine carries the alias by which she is known in the criminal underworld. Moll, born to a felon sentenced to transportation to America in Newgate prison is a social outcast whose naivete teaches her from bitter experience to adapt coping strategies to survive. These, as the seriousness of her predicament deepens merge into criminal acts which test the readers' willingness to relax their own moral judgements in sympathy with this abandoned and cheated woman. The author has provided a heart-rending account of how marriage and abandonment can determine a woman's circumstances, as Moll learns to use deception as her only defence against the self-serving whims of her lovers and husbands. Defoe has the plot traverse the Atlantic several times as Moll's past and present merge to fashion her downfall and eventual reprieve. A classic of literature without any question. "

    " Most interesting when Moll is spouting off lines like these: "She is always Marry'd too soon, who gets a bad Husband, and she is never Marry'd too late, who gets a good one: In a Word, there is no Woman, Deformity, or lost Reputation excepted, but if she manages well, may be Marry'd safety one time or other. . . ."

    " Ok...she just goes from man to man. "

    " Remarkably dull and boring -this novel went on and on with useless adjectives that ambled aimlessly, to the point my mind seemed to go on auto-pilot. "
