Uncle Tom's Cabin was the best-selling novel of the 19th century and the second best-selling book of that century, following the Bible. It is credited with helping fuel the abolitionist cause in the 1850s. In 1855, three years after it was published, it was called "the most popular novel of our day." A thrilling and important piece of American literature!

One of the most interesting and real to life stories, I have read.
Uncle Tom . He was a good example of a true Christian.
I liked Amilia , Eva and her father
Yes when mothers were being sold separately, and the way Uncle Tom dies.
This story really opened my eyes to a lot of the true factual things that went on doing slavery. I can see why it has taken the blacks so long to forgive. They should not be reminded by such stories as this. I believe there were enough saved ones that prayed for deliverance and that is why God raised up Abraham Lincoln ,in answer to there prayers. After listening to this book, I am sure of it. I am really saddened at the way they were treated like animals. All for money and prosperity. I am also moved at the honesty and goodness of some of those slave owners. At the way their slaves were part of the family and loved, and were treated as precious and valuable souls.

There was a tale of a young mother and as a slave had her toddler removed from her while she was occupied With some task. Upon discovering the child was missing and having her slave master tell her how he had sold the child she displayed a despairing shock, then wept bitterly. Later that night she wept quietly. Then she quietly jumped from the river boat and was drowned. (Of course I don' t do the story justice.)
Admirable attempt of conveying feelings from a wide range of characters.
I know I cried or was greatly saddened several times. Yes, we can expect to be horrified, and indignant, this I expected. But the conveyance of a mother's love and heart ache was truly moving. Shouldn't we rethink life in the face of such horrors? What keeps this racial horror from continuing ? Why are some people not affected by racial differences?
This should be required reading. Is it shameful to be a slave? Is it shameful to be a slave owner? Are the chattel of racial slavery human? America the great and the world lives in enmity with regards to racial, religious , ethnic , class, etc... Differences for the most part. From hailie selassie's speech on race evolution is happening .
Say something about yourself!
this book is just not for me. I will return it and try a different one. Audible is always good it returns. love audible
