"Defoe's excellence is to make me forget my specific class, character, and circumstances,
and to raise me while I read him into the universal man."--Samuel Taylor Coleridge

One of the earliest novels in English, Moll Flanders is the purported autobiography of a heroine who
is undoubtedly one of the most lively, convincing, and delightful rogues in literature. Born in Newgate Prison
and orphaned soon after, Moll is provided with no opportunities in life, yet she is propelled by an unrelenting
drive to overcome her background of impoverishment. Donning whatever mask suits her best in the moment,
she appraises theft, prostitution, and bigamy only in terms of their profit potential. From her birth to her final
position of wealth, Moll Flanders demonstrates a spirit of industry and an indomitable will.

Praised by Virginia Woolf as one of the "few English novels which we can call indisputably great," Moll
is a work of genius which represents an important step in the evolution of the novel.

Have you always loved reading but sometimes find it hard to find the time? Theres nothing quite like curling up with a good book but many of us cant do that as much as wed like. We sacrifice this special time because we have so many other things to do each day. Its a common problem and its the reason why people on average are not reading as much as they once did. Audio books bring the story to life just as the storytellers of the past did. They allow you to experience the book in a whole new way; in the way the writer felt and heard it in their head. You can feel the emotion when you allow audio books to let the story come to life.
