I really don't believe her repentance at the end, she enjoys re-telling her story too much to mean it. I love how she is such an interchangeable character with so many faces but it does make you wonder did we ever get to see the real Moll?
I did find it a bit of hard work in parts and I think it is one of those books that you appreciate the more you read it.
What did everyone think of the way Defoe wrote about her giving up so many of her children? I think he portrayed a female character well but I found this trait hard to believe after the 3rd time

She loved her brother/husband a lot hence the feelings towards her American son and the same with her other son who's father she was madly in love with - can't believe it but I forgot his name but he was the Lancashire husband that she was reunited with in jail!
