Uncle Tom's Cabin The story focuses on the tale of Uncle Tom, a long suffering black slave, the central character around whose life the other characters.
Not great not bad
It's not that bad of a book but it's so tiring, almost fell asleep reading it. It does give out a good message though!
Uncle Tom's Cabin by Harriet Beecher Stowe
WOW! This should still be required reading for all school children. Maybe not until at least junior high school age but all should read this book. WOW! Thank you for this book. It has truly done a work in my life.
Every American Should Read it
By Gretchen 1000000
Harriet Beecher Stowe was a woman ahead of her time. She could be a great leader today. The contents of this novel are taken from actual situations within our former slave-holding society. It was written and published while slavery was still legal in the United States.
Stowe illustrates, with amazing empathy for every type of character involved, how wrong it is to try to justify slavery in any sense. I would recommend reading it to gain a full understanding of why reparations are warranted and why Christianity and Slavery cannot truly coexist.
Hi, I haven't read this book yet but I'm curious if I can. I am an 11 year old girl 3 quarters into the fifth grade but I am an excellent reader. Though, I'm not sure if this book will have any language I do not under stand.
I had always heard of Uncle Tom's Cabin as a book ridiculed by blacks. Uncle Tom was to be hated and shunned. However one must keep in mind it was written in 1850 at the height of slavery. It's purpose was to expose the cruelty of slavery and I believe to show the grace of Jesus Christ. Stowe reflects that grace through Tom's struggles and devotion to the Lord. His focus on eternity in the midst of struggling in a basket of sin and persecution emulates Christ's walk to the cross. Tom's desire to forgive and see his tormentors come to repentance is a sure reflection of God's love for all of us.
This is a powerful book and must have struck to the very heart of slavery across the world in the 1850's. I pray the God will touch your heart with his grace and mercy. For we are all sinners.
A must read, as much so now as when it was written!
I realized one day I had never actually read this book, even though it is a classic. I'm so glad to have now read it; so sad that now in 2016 that race and color is still an issue! People, there is only one race...the HUMAN race, in different states shades of brown!
An ongoing issue
By I'm used to disappointment.
As I read this book, I remembered the millions of undocumented immigrants, who now face the issues that the slaves faced in the 1800's. Living in the shadows without a voice, being separated from their families, etc. We must all learn from this book to fight for those who cannot fight. To use our voices for change this coming November.
Uncle Tom's Cabin
Wow. I never read this as part of my required reading in school. (Wasn't there a time children were expected to read this book as part of their education?) Instead, I read it as an adult in anticipation of my son reading it for school. What a treasure! So much good, so much to think about, so much to reveal in our nation's history. Ms. Stowe did a remarkable job of showing so many sides to this issue, that you feel you have walked through history. I will be glad to make this book part of my children's required reading.
Deeply poignant and inspirational 🙏🏽🙏🏽
Wow! What a book. I've always had my thoughts of who and what Uncle Tom was. But after reading this book I discovered that he truly was an honorable man. He was so humble and God fearing and no matter what he held on to God's unchanging hand.
This was an excellent book it was very gruesome and gave a thorough explanation of what and how slavery really was, the good and the bad. It kept my interest from the beginning to the end. I highly recommend that everyone reads this book and that someone makes this into a movie.

Harriet Beecher Stowe & Abraham Lincoln Uncle Tom’s Cabin by Harriet Beecher Stowe is an anti-slave novel that helped lay the groundwork for the Civil War. President Lincoln said of Beecher, “so this is the little lady who started this great war.”
Harriet Beecher Stowe Selling more than 300,000 copies the first year it was published, Stowe's powerful abolitionist novel fueled the fire of the human rights debate in 1852. Denouncing the institution of slavery in dramatic terms, the incendiary novel quickly draws the reader into the world of slaves and their masters. Stowe's characters are powerfully and humanly realized in Uncle Tom, a majestic and heroic slave whose faith and dignity are never corrupted; Eliza and her husband, George, who elude slave catchers and eventually flee a country that condones slavery; Simon Legree, a brutal plantation owner; Little Eva, who suffers emotionally and physically from the suffering of slaves; and fun-loving Topsy, Eva's slave playmate. Critics, scholars, and students are today revisiting this monumental work with a new objectivity, focusing on Stowe’s compelling portrayal of women and the novel's theological underpinnings.
Harriet Beecher Stowe Go on a journey to the coast of Maine and immerse yourself in the picturesque community on Orr’s Island. See the raindrops glistening on the pine needles and hear the waves crashing on the rocks. This is a tale of romance, tragedy, crusty sea captains, an impetuous boy, a loving girl, complete with village gossips and twists in the plot.
Harriet Beecher Stowe Uncle Tom, Topsy, Sambo, Simon Legree, little Eva: their names are American bywords, and all of them are characters in Harriet Beecher Stowe's remarkable novel of the pre-Civil War South. Uncle Tom's Cabin was revolutionary in 1852 for its passionate indictment of slavery and for its presentation of Tom, "a man of humanity," as the first black hero in American fiction. Labeled racist and condescending by some contemporary critics, it remains a shocking, controversial, and powerful work -- exposing the attitudes of white nineteenth-century society toward "the peculiar institution" and documenting, in heartrending detail, the tragic breakup of black Kentucky families "sold down the river." An immediate international sensation, Uncle Tom's Cabin sold 300,000 copies in the first year, was translated into thirty-seven languages, and has never gone out of print: its political impact was immense, its emotional influence immeasurable.
Harriet Beecher Stowe A mediados de una fría tarde de febrero, dos hombres estaban sentados solos con una copa de vino delante en un comedor bien amueblado de la ciudad de P. de Kentucky. No había criados, y los caballeros estaban muy juntos y parecían estar hablando muy serios de algún tema. Por comodidad, los hemos llamado hasta ahora dos caballeros. Sin embargo, al observar de forma crítica a uno de ellos, no parecía ceñirse muy bien a esa categoría. Era bajo y fornido, con facciones bastas y vulgares, y el aspecto fanfarrón de un hombre de baja calaña que quiere trepar la escala social. Vestía llamativamente un chaleco multicolor, un pañuelo azul con lunares amarillos anudado alegremente al cuello con un gran lazo, muy acorde con su aspecto general. Las manos eran grandes y rudas y cubiertas de anillos; llevaba una gruesa cadena de reloj repleta de enormes sellos de gran variedad de colores, que solía hacer tintinear con patente satisfacción en el calor de la conversación. Ésta estaba totalmente exenta de las limitaciones de la Gramática de Murray, y salpicada regularmente con diversas expresiones profanas, que ni siquiera el deseo de dar una versión gráfica de la conversación nos hará transcribir.
