Summary:

Among the most “banned” books in the United States, Uncle Tom’s Cabin; or, Life Among the Lowly is a novel by American author Harriet Beecher Stowe which treats slavery as a central theme. Stowe was a Connecticut-born teacher at the Hartford Female Academy and an active abolitionist. The novel is believed to have had a profound effect on the North’s view of slavery. In fact, when he met Harriet Beecher Stowe, President Lincoln is said to have commented, “So you’re the little lady whose book started the Civil War.” First published on March 20, 1852, the story focuses on the tale of Uncle Tom, a long-suffering black slave, the central character around whose life the other characters—both fellow slaves and slave owners—revolve. The novel depicts the harsh reality of slavery while also showing that Christian love and faith can overcome even something as evil as enslavement of fellow human beings.

    How can slaves owners call themselves Christian? This book reveals that some owners did have souls and therefore gave slaves their freedom. But the many didn't and actually believe they were not doing anything wrong. I guess they skipped the story about how God use Moses to free the slaves in the Bible.

    This is a charming and emotional read I believe that it is the trigger that pushed the country in to civil war. I think they should both be required to read this book in school along with John Brown

    Story jumps more than I care for, the narrator was good, just on the quiet side, not easy to listen to while driving.

    An absolutely fascinating classic, much better than I was expecting. The character development & societal commentary was riveting. Also, one of the best narrators I've come across in audiobooks. I'd give him 6 stars.
