I'd seen the movie starring Robin Wright many many years ago. I really like her anyway, but the story itself was a lot of fun and I'd always looked forward to reading the book to see how it measured up. I wasn't disappointed in the least. I suppose reading about Moll's life pattern could get a bit tedious for some, but although a bit melodramatic, some people are like that in real life. As I said, this is just a fun story in whatever form.
