"I saw the Cloud, though I did not foresee the Storm."

The daughter of a convicted mother, Moll Flanders - a tough and self-assertive young woman - must learn early on how to look out for herself. When her husband dies, she sets out to attract another. And then another, and then another, and then another ... In a time when women served little purpose in society, Moll manages to find a way to combat every obstacle life throws at her. Whether that means working as a prostitute or a pickpocket, having sex with certain men or accidentally marrying her brother.

Rollicking adventurous oldie but goodie

Never having read this before and having only vague thoughts that it was a bit risque, I found it to be as well written and enjoyable as other Defoe books. Interspersed among Flanders circuitous ups and downs in fortune and virtue are wise words of advice--a morality play of sorts. The narrator told the story as a matter-of-fact relation of events, as a reading of a diary might be. Very good all around. Very highly recommended.

Eye-opening history

Eye-opening history as to what women had to do to survive in England during the late 1600s-early 1700s. At some points, I very much disliked Moll Flanders, but she was a survivor with a, basically, good heart who in the end triumphed!
