D ageBy 1721 Defoe had become a recognised novelist with the success of Robinson Crusoe in 1719 His political work was tapering off at this point due to the fall of both Whig and Tory party leaders with whom he had been associated Ro. 3 things I liked about this book1 Moll s distinctive character and voice2 Her ability to turn almost any situation into a positive eventually Moll Flanders wobbles but she never falls down3 How the book highlighted the difficult positions a woman could be left in during this period as a result of for example becoming widowed with children not having a husbandfamily to support her having illegitimate children or being married and thus all personal property legally belonging to the husband who might fritter it away3 things I did not like about this book1 The disregard for Moll s children OK I can understand her doing her best to forget them when she s in a very difficult situation The second time round in Virginia for example she doesn t ask after the other child she had left there She overdoes the loving mother bit a touch right at the end when she re meets her son in Virginia and you d think in this mood she would be minded to say something about that son s brother or sister she left behind Similarly at one point she comments on going back to the place she left her two children by Robin and finds out about and reports back on the fate of his parents brother and sister but not a word about the two children 2 It was skillfully written so that the reader retained sympathy for Moll than might have been the case but she was still a pretty nasty piece of work however much she justified her actions to herself3 The ending seemed rushed forced and as if it was trying to make up for a prurient emphasis on wickedness throughout most of the rest of the book3 things I learnt from this book1 Fabric could be really really expensive yet apparently not subject to particularly tight security We are told that a typical servant girl would earn about 3 a year 5 will pay for a baby to be fostered for a year and Moll estimates that she could live on 6 a year She routinely however steals pieces of cloth worth upwards of 20 guineas2 London had an area called The Mint in which debtors were safe from prosecution for their debts3 You could get hung for all sorts of crimes in the past At its height the criminal law included some 220 different crimes punishable by death These crimes included such offences as being in the company of Gypsies for one month strong evidence of malice in a child aged 7 14 years of age and blacking the face or using a disguise whilst committing a crime Wikipedia3 words used excessively in this book1 satisfaction2 perplexity3 convenience

Bert Walpole was beginning his rise Defoe was never fully at home with the Walpole group Defoe's Whig views are nevertheless evident in the story of Moll The novel's full title gives some insight into this and the outline of the plot. The original and complete title of Moll Flanders by Daniel Defoe is thisThe Fortunes and Misfortunes of the Famous Moll Flanders Etc Who was born in Newgate and during a life of continu d Variety for Threescore 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 Written from her own MemorandumsThere is the story in a nutshell Supposedly it was written by Moll herself Daniel Defoe s name never appeared as author on the books until after his death The tale is said to be based the life of Moll King whom the author met on visiting Newgate PrisonOn closing the book I knew I had enjoyed it The uestion was whyWell first of all I like Moll despite her faults She is strong and resourceful She is clear thinking and doesn t give up She talks straight She doesn t shy away from stating what she has done at least as she tells the story to us here Moll s voice her personality comes through loud and clearSecondly I was curious to see how what is stated in the title came to be How is it possible one marries a brother Moll s story is in fact believable but convoluted Thirdly I felt like I was seeing life experiencing life in the 1600s the life of a woman not of the elite Moll seventy years old in 1683 tells us the story of her life We see life in England and America Comparisons may be drawnSurprisedly enough written so long ago Defoe s prose is not hard to follow The book was first published in 1722 This is uite simply a fun story I believe Defoe wanted us to enjoy ourselves and laugh People enjoy reading about those who misbehave than those who are strait laced and law abiding Clearly Defoe knew this Why not stars Sometimes it is hard to keep track of who is whoDavina Porter narrates the audiobook extremely well Her narration increased my enjoyment of the book She perfectly intones all the characters Five stars for the narration
