Audible Editor Reviews

First published serially in an abolitionist periodical in 1851, Harriet Beecher Stowe's Uncle Tom's Cabin, once compiled, went on to become the best-selling novel of the 19th century, considered by many to have served as a vital force behind the anti-slavery movement and the U.S. Civil War.

Voice actor Jim Roberts strikes a balance between gravity and colloquialism in his performance of this iconic work, engaging listeners in in the tale of Tom's trials and tribulations when he's sold down the river and Stowe's scathing indictment of the slave trade.

Publisher's Summary

"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. The dilemma posed by this book has yet to be solved. What is it to be "a moral human being"? And how can such a person survive in society? Mrs. Stowe's book is about more than just slavery.

    "I recommend the abridged version"

    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.
