    Description

    When a Kentucky farmer is forced to sell two slaves to a plantation owner, it becomes a turning point in the lives of both slaves. For Eliza, it's one of escape - a harrowing flight north with her young son. For Uncle Tom, sent down the Mississippi River, it's a more certain fate, as he struggles to survive against the brutal exploitation of his traders.

    As the single most popular novel of its era, Stowe's volatile work of protest fiction fueled the abolitionist cause in the 1850s. The book personalized the plight of slavery in a way that political speeches and newspapers could not. Stowe's humanistic approach ignited a national argument, one credited by historians as a key contributor to the outbreak of the Civil War.

    Revised edition: Previously published as Uncle Tom's Cabin, this edition of Uncle Tom's Cabin (AmazonClassics Edition) includes editorial revisions.

    We have been lied to

    We have been lied to about this classic. This book had never been on my must read list because we had always been told this was a white story that made the Africans look as though they were nothing. It is admitted that I came close to not finishing this one because it is so depressing on how man can treat his fellow man. However, I trudged through the depression and began to realize this as not about a black man submitting himself to whites but in fact was about a black man who ends up being a picture of Christ. I was amazed. Why is this book not required reading? My bet is 95% or more who have negative thoughts on this classic have never read it. This is a MUST READ! Right there with THE BIBLE, right there with Dickens, Twain, Orwell, etc. This book has depressing parts but ends with a feeling how man via the GOD OF THE BIBLE rises above the evil of this world caused by Satan.

    It is definitely not as we have been taught a pro slavery book, it is in fact anti slavery and uses the depressing images to show that. It uses these same images to show how so many put their heads in the sand during those horrible times. The so called non slave owners didn't like slavery but did nothing. In other words they believed it was a choice to have slavery or not have slavery but not their personal choice. They thought it wrong to make that choice but still saw slavery as a choice. This then can also be seen as an analogy to our modern times concerning the "right to choose" by women. What is that choice that a woman can make? The choice to murder a human being in their womb!

    Yes, we have been lied to about abortion and lied to about this book. Read it for yourself, trudge through the depressing and evil images of how blacks were treated and see for yourself that in the end the book is very uplifting! God is glorified in the end as a simple man fights the temptation to give in to the evil of Satan and instead submits to God Almighty and in so doing actually helps bring freedom to a few everlasting souls! You can't get more uplifting than that.

    Best Reading of a Story I’ve ever heard!

    The story is, of course, a famous classic - and for very good reason! HBS has written a masterpiece. But her genius is nearly matched by Buck Shriner’s reading of the novel. Man, he’s got the best voice(s) I’ve ever heard. That alone makes it worth listening to! You’ll enjoy both the story and the performance of this work.

    WONDERFUL NARRATOR

    There are some other versions of this book that surprisingly have 10x more reviews (unabridged). This is by far the best narrator. I listened to it with my 8-year-old, and she loved it, and especially the narrator.

    You can sample the different versions, and I think you'll see for yourself what I mean!

    Excellent reading!

    This is one of the best readings I've come across for an audiobook. There are so many characters, but the reader did a phenomenal job reading it. It’s a tough topic but still almost as pertinent today as it was back then.

    Best for researchers of anti-slavery

    Is it racist? Yes. Sexist? Yes. Does it use the word decidedly way too much? Yes. Will you see the N word enough to make you scream? Yes.

    But Uncle Tom’s Cabin actually helped bring down slavery. That counts trillions of times more than my hurt feelings more than a century later.

    Nevertheless, reading through is a chore and a slog. "Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl" is a better use of your time.

    There were 3.9 million slaves in the USA in 1860, and freeing one of them is a million times more important than my feelings, so 3.9 trillion is the number I should have used earlier.

    The character George makes an excellent anti-slavery argument. He also makes a “Not my country!” speech.

    Stowe uses snark quite often, calling characters “worthies” whom she despises, or describing a spit of chewing tobacco as an honor. It’s mildly funny.

    Although it is fiction, serious arguments against slavery are found throughout. The author ranked antislavery highly, maybe higher than plot.

    The author takes Christianity seriously, and argues that Christianity, if properly understood, is against slavery. Stowe also worded many phrases so that they would remind readers of Bible verses.

    The plight of enslaved females was much less clear in "Uncle Tom's Cabin" than in "Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl." I was left with the impression that Stowe thought being specific on this topic would fill her readers with too much horror.

    The narrator of this audiobook took on a great many vocal styles, including lots of dialect. It was usually easy to tell who was speaking just by the voices he used. Some archaic terms were unfamiliar, though.

    Happy Emancipation Day!

    Tragically insightful

    The lives that were lost, the hate and ignorant thoughts are so tragic it seems fiction. Very insightful book into our dark history. It’s one of those books that makes you see the world differently.

    EVERYBODY

    This book gave me new respect for Uncle Tom. Now I don't care about anybody calling me or anyone else Uncle Tom. I now will just reply. Thank you.

    Must read

    The narrator is pleasant to listen to. The different voices he used for each character, it was easy to determine who was who.
