This recording of Daniel Defoe's 1722 novel features a too skimpy abridgment of the tale of the irrepressible title character, born in London's Newgate Gaol. It is read by an accomplished British actress, and its cover features a not-so-stately photo of the buxom actress, costumed as Moll for an English television series. Kingston reads with expression but without ornamentation, choosing not to give unique voices to the different characters. It works well here, since Moll is really a one-woman show, and so much of the performance depends on how well the narrator handles her. Kingston's voice exudes a comfort with this wonderful fictional heroine. D.B. © AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC/JAN 00]
