Moll Flanders by Daniel Defoe based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
Amusing tale with tragedy and redemption. Defoe aptly illustrates the true nature of unbridled capitalism.
If you are looking for a book with a strong female character who gets away with anything and everything... well than this is the book for you. While Defoe's portrayal of a cunning female mind is entertaining at times, it is also a bit degrading. Over all it is an entertaining read, but one not to necessarily revisit.
