    Uncle Tom's Cabin is centered on the character of Uncle Tom, a long-suffering black slave around whom the stories of other characters - both fellow slaves and slave owners - revolve. This emotional novel portrays the reality of slavery while also stressing that Christian love can defeat something as damaging as enslavement of fellow human beings. Uncle Tom's Cabin was the best-selling book in the 19th century, and second best-selling following the Bible.

    What did you love best about Uncle Tom's Cabin?

    This performance is unlike any other others. I was amazed by how the author, through the performers, described the characters, as if you actually knew them ... I empathized with them and experienced their lives. I enjoyed the multi-voice discourse among the characters. I loved the twists and turns of the story.

    In this first collaboration by science fiction masters Larry Niven (Ringworld) and Gregory Benford (Timescape), the limits of wonder are redrawn once again as a human expedition to another star system is jeopardized by an encounter with an astonishingly immense artifact in interstellar space: a bowl-shaped structure half-englobing a star, with a habitable area equivalent to many millions of Earths…and it’s on a direct path heading for the same system as the human ship.

    What would have made Bowl of Heaven better?

    Resolving the plots, the mysteries, the conflicts, the story, the character development -- anything at all -- before just ending the book in the middle of everything. At the end, it was obvious that the publisher wanted the reader to buy another book whenever it comes out, but I will not and I do not recommend that anyone else do so. The story line was repetitive and predictable. Also, the discourse among the characters and within the minds of the characters was elementary. It was extremely disappointing.
