Uncle Tom's Cabin | [Harriet Beecher Stowe]

Uncle Tom's Cabin

"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.

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.

    "Now I know why this book made history"

    There is a reason this book made history, it's captivating and touching. Those who enjoy Christian inspirational reading will also find this book very fulfilling. However, the choice of narrator is completely wrong for this story- he's a mix of a 1950's newscaster and William Shatner. Someone like Morgan Freeman would have been much better suited. Regardless, this book is a must read/listen.
