    Uncle Tom is a high-minded, devoutly Christian black slave to a kind family, the Shelbys. But beset by financial difficulties, the Shelbys sell Tom to a slave trader. Young George Shelby promises to someday redeem him. The story relates Uncle Tom's trials, suffering, and religious fortitude.

    Sam Motes says: "The beginning of the end of slavery"
    "Great Story, Poor Narration"
    Overall

    If you are reading this review, you obviously know the story of "Uncle Tom's Cabin." I love the story. I find it interesting, heartbreaking and full of adventure. Unfortunately, I had to stop listening and switch to my freee Kindle copy. The narrator on this particular version is terrible. He uses acents that sound as if they are at times Irish and at times German for the same person in the same speech. THe accents he uses for the black women often sound Irish again. I'm guessing there were not a lot of black Irish immigrants at the time. When he narrates a woman's speech it is hard to hear his soft voice so volume control is an issue.

    In short, a good story was almost ruined by very poor narration.
