User reviews about this book
By mountain cherry
I rated this book far higher than warranted by the quality of the writing because of its historical significance as an effort by a white woman to describe the plight of the enslaved persons of African descent in the U.S. including not only those supporting slavery but also the hypocrisy of anti-slavery persons in New England and elsewhere.
Language is unacceptable today and most descriptions of African Americans seems quite cliched. Also seems the author supported the Liberian solution (former slaves should return to Africa).
Author observed and credited the intelligence of slaves, former slaves and free blacks and supported the need to educate and to support education of this group, not a vision shared by most in her society.
So many pages are filled with bible verses. Maybe it is just a reflection of that time but it felt like the author was trying to get me to become a Christian. Having faith is nice but this was just over the top for me. The characters were interesting but I really just stuck with it to the end since it is considered a literary classic. It’s really not a book that I would recommend. (And why did Stowe have the same name for some characters??)

One of the best books of al time. I wish people would read it before calling people Uncle Tom as an insult. If they read it they would not call people that.

It is a page turner. I had to read straight through the last 200 or so pages.
A WORK OF ART!

One of the greatest books I have ever read or ever will read! I would rate as second best book in the world, only being topped by the the Holy Bible!
Uncle Tom’s Cabin
A classic for sure to re-ignite the fire of injustices faced by African Americans then and now. Thank you Harriet Beecher Stowe for paving the way for millions to find freedom and for your spark...
A Picture Into the Struggle
This is a great insight into the plight of slavery. Great as a historical read and a read to inform us on how to act in the future, reconciling the wrongs of slavery.

“So this is the little woman who started all this fuss. “ Abraham Lincoln. Wow. Living at that time in history, I surely would have been roused to action. I’ve seen depictions in movies and read much about Lincoln but this, to my recollect, is the first time I’ve red this novel. Incredible.

This is the best book I’ve read in a very long time. I’m not sure why I haven’t read it sooner. It’s a call to all Christian men and women to stand up for those who can’t stand up for themselves. In this book, the atrocity is slavery. In today’s world, it’s abortion. We must pray, begging God to stop the violence among us.
A truly beautiful book.

An important book too, even today.
