Publisher's Summary

"The fortunes and misfortunes of the famous Moll Flanders, who was born in Newgate, and during a life of continue'd variety for three-score years, besides her childhood, was twelve year a whore, five times a wife (whereof once to her own brother), twelve year a thief, eight year a transported felon in Virginia at last grew rich, liv'd honest, and died a penitent."

So begins Moll Flanders, Daniel Defoe's honest portrayal of one woman's struggle for economic survival in an unsympathetic world. Told with uncompromising directness and an extraordinary empathy, it is, as Virginia Woolf once claimed, "one of the few English novels we can call indisputably great".

    Story
    "Lively and convincing"

    Moll Flanders is a wicked creature but a lively narrator; and Georgina Sutton is a delightful reader. After a lifetime of sexual indulgence and theft, Moll ends up happy and repentant on the Eastern Shore, managing a plantation with her husband and reunited with her son - the product of another marriage to a man who turned out to be her brother.

    It's a sparkling tale that shows off Defoe's skill with characters and dialogue. It's written in the first person, as if Moll (not her real name, she assures us) is writing her own memoirs. I found Defoe's impersonation of a female narrator convincing. (I should note that when I mentioned this over breakfast one morning, my daughter said: "How would YOU know?" Point taken. All I really know is that I found myself returning to the audiobook with pleasure many times during the day.)
