it was amazing

At one point in their lives, everyone should read "Moll Flanders". Some might dislike this book because it uses old English and is hard to understand. Others may find that this enhances the story and makes the reader feel as if he lived at that time. I relate moreso to the latter. If anyone ever decides to read this book, I stongly suggest to do a little background research on the setting of the book. This definitely helps one to understand the plot. I found this book very interesting because there is constant action. Moll, the protagonist, isn't a simple woman. After all, it was once said, "Well-behaved women rarely make history". When reading the book, one should focus on relationships people have with each other, and the role of money in a society. I would strongly recommend this book. I does expand one's horizons, and is something original.
