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.

Unusual story that I really enjoyed. Had to have been a real page flipper back in the 18th century.

Didn't care for the fact that there were no chapters or breaks in the story which made it hard to pick up and put down. The story didn't wow me, although I did enjoy the end the best, but the repeated tales of her thievery got old, in my opinion.
