Moll Flanders by Daniel Defoe

Another one down.... For some reason the copy paste from Goodreads to Blog is not formatting right (see last entry).  So, I apologize that I have been reduced to text only until I can figure it out.

My rating: 2 of 5 stars
I read this as it is one of the 1001 Books to Read before you die, and it was this months selection from the 1001 Books group here on Goodreads.  I did not care for the fact that it was one big long stream of consciousness telling of her life with no chapter breaks, which made it hard to pick up and put down as I need to being a mother.  The story itself was not uninteresting, but the end was probably my favorite part as opposed to all of the tales regarding her thieving exploits as they got repetitive, in my opinion.  It's another one off the list, but I hope I enjoy the next one more.

Next up - Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy by John le Carre which sounds much more agreeable to my tastes, so here's hoping!
