I continued my current re-reading of the classics in Kindle versions with this one, first read 40 years ago, and I was pleased to have my fond memories of it refreshed. One of the earliest British novels, this masquerades as a memoir, with Defoe handling the female perspective of the eponymous heroine just as well as he did Robinson Crusoe.

Written by Daniel Defoe. Narrated by Davina Porter. One of the most determined, energetic, and lusty heroines in all of English literature, Daniel Defoe's Moll Flanders will do anything to avoid poverty.

Moll Flanders Moll Flanders Moll Flanders, .

By: Daniel Defoe (1659/1661-1731). A woman in prison awaiting a death sentence is given a reprieve because she is pregnant. She migrates to America abandoning the baby to the care of a foster mother. When he dies, leaving her with two young children to look after, she begins a life of deception and confidence trickery which ends in great tragedy and disgrace. In her old age, events take a less tragic turn and her redemption comes from sources she least expects. First published in 1762, The Fortunes and Misfortunes of the Famous Moll Flanders by Daniel Defoe is not as well known as his most famous novel, Robinson Crusoe.

Written by Daniel Defoe, narrated by Davina Porter. Public Domain (P)2010 Tantor. Narrator Davina Porter's attentively detailed performance of Moll Flanders evokes the determination and resourcefulness of Daniel Defoe's titular character with great finesse and clarity. Porter balances Moll's archness with strength of character as this heroine tumbles around prostitution, bigamy, incest, and theft, all the while inspiring the listener's sympathy - and perhaps even encouragement.

The Fortunes & Misfortunes of the Famous Moll Flanders &c. More books by Daniel Defoe. An American Robinson Crusoe.

One of the most determined, energetic, and lusty heroines in all of English literature, Daniel Defoe's Moll Flanders will do anything to avoid poverty. Born in Newgate Prison, she was for twelve years a whore, five times a wife (once to her own brother), twelve years a thief, and eight years a transported felon in Virginia before finally escaping from the life of immorality and wickedness imposed on her by society. She is as much a survivor and just as resourceful as Defoe's other great literary creation, Robinson Crusoe.Celebrated as "a masterpiece of characterization" by E. M. Forster, Moll Flanders is both a cunning examination of social mores and a hugely entertaining story filled with scandalous sexual and criminal adventures. In Moll, Defoe created a character of limitless interest, in spite of her unconcealed ethical shortcomings. Taking Moll through the echelons of eighteenth-century English society, Defoe seldom moralizes as he champions the personal qualities of self-reliance, perseverance, and hard work-even when it takes the form of crime.

Having read only one other Defoe novel before, that being "Roxana", I must say this is my favorite so far, and it seems to be the same for the majority of other readers. It does feel like his books, though short, are a marathon of a read, since there are no chapters or other page breaks that can generally chop up the story, like into different periods of time or different scenes. I guess I am just used to the modern way a story is broken up.

To get to the tale itself, I really enjoyed it, and throughout the whole of it, you really do feel for the woman, who we generally don't know the name of. She goes thru a lot, failed romances, certainly many marriages, abandoned children, broken hearts and a few twists as well that I hadn't expected (thank goodness I never read a synopsis that gave away anything before completing it). I was a little frustrated with the ending, for I wish the author had given a little more description of some of her children that she left behind. For a couple of them, sons I believe, 'Moll' said how torn and saddened she felt about leaving those children behind. I thought it so heartless of her, for, being a mother myself, I could never contemplate abandoning mine, no matter the reason. Or if events parted us, I would never rest until I found him again, or discovered what happened to him. I don't know, I guess that her heartlessness in that regard lost a little bit of my sympathy in the end, since I thought by the end of the tale, we would discover what had happened to all of her children.

I do plan on reading "Robinson Crusoe" soon, but I have a feeling that "Moll Flanders" will remain my favorite of Defoe's

One of my absolute favorite books. It follows the ups and downs of a woman who does anything and everything she can to survive and occasionally thrive. Moll is a thief, a wife, a servant, a whore, a mother, an abandoner of children, etc. She is sometimes "good" and often "bad" but you are always invested in her survival, even at the times that you don't like her very much. In a weird way, she reminds me of Scarlet O'Hara from Gone with the Wind, but with a lot more downtrodden moments. There are quite a few mature themes throughout the book, so some people may wish to supervise if they have any children that are interested in reading this novel.

For anyone who enjoys this novel, the BBC Miniseries is a great adaptation, but stay away from the Hollywood version of Moll Flanders

To give you an idea of the time frame of Mr Defoe's books- they were written during the 1700 s when pirates still sailed the seas, the "colonies" were still being used as a place to exile convicts, and people were often hanged for stealing, and we didn't declare our independence until 45 years after Mr Defoe's death! For a book written almost 300 years ago, it's still an interesting story with a surprisingly current plot: girl loses parents, becomes as a domestic with a family, family's son swears eternal devotion, gets girl pregnant, then leaves her to make her own way in the world. Moll makes her way quite well, by any means possible and that's all I'm going to give away about the plot, you'll really have to read the book to find out how it all ends.

I loved the visual starring Robin Wright, Morgan Freeman and Stockard Channing and trust me when I say the movie version which was based on the book, is about as far removed from the book as possible. That being said, I can only imagine when this was published in 1721, it caused more than a few eyebrows to raise or wigs to pop off readers heads. The author has created a character that repeatedly reinvented herself as her circumstances changed and indeed it's hard not to like her. I did find a few of the scenarios that occurred in the story of historic value, so there is something to be learned from this work. I can't say that I was totally taken with the book but I did find it interesting.

This novel, written in the 1700’s, is a classic. Although Moll is often naked in bed, no vulgar words are used to describe the goings on. This gives a sense of excitement to the reader who imagines the goings on. If modern authors so employed the imagination of readers in their books they might write books that will become classics too. Fewer vulgarities would better serve society and literature.

This novel should be read by people who are interested in history, as it gives a good picture of life in the 1700’s. This novel is a must read for young adults so they can see how delicately and dignified sex was depicted in novels in the past and contrast it with the vulgar ways sex is written about today. (Young adults are already reading books that contain extremely vulgar depictions of sex.)

I read this book after having seen and enjoyed a 1996 movie version. After reading the book, I decided that the movie, although very enjoyable in itself, was a very poor adaptation of Defoe’s original story. This book is rich in human experience of a particular time and place, but also demonstrates that, even though society changes in many ways over time, humanity remains what it is. I loved this book, and plan to use it as reading material in my high school English classroom. I also plan to read further about the woman, Moll King, on whom this story is supposedly based.
