    "So this is the little lady that made the big war." The authenticity of Lincoln's words have been questioned, but there is no question that the work fueled the passion and prejudices of countless numbers. It is a work of overwhelming power and persuasions which has outlived even the most severe critics. Notwithstanding its contribution to the abolitionist movement, the book offers a balanced treatment; there is admiration for the best of Southern gentility and the villain is a Vermonter.

    "I recommend the abridged version"
    Overall

    This is a classic and a must read! I'm so glad that I read this book. The themes of this book center around what it was like to live as a slave, what it was like to be hunted, to be sold, to have your children ripped from you, to be abused, etc. It also shows the mind of the plantation owners, what they believed about slavery and how they used it to justify their actions. It is a heart-wrenching story. There are many different characters throughout the story. Sometimes, the book drags in places. I recommend the abridged version.
