Everyone should go back and read Uncle Tom's Cabin every few years or so. I re-read it religiously once a year to remind myself of and get inspiration from how amazing Harriet Beecher Stowe was. To think of the times she wrote in and her life is almost too much to wrap your head around.

This book should be read by anyone who professes to be a Christian. I loved this book for so many reasons. First and foremost, this book was life changing and I was totally blown away by the message. It made me evaluate some of my own beliefs and how they relate to my actions. I really got involved with the characters because Stowe paints such a vivid picture with her words. I also loved how she would speak to her readers while telling the story. I could hardly put the book down because of the s ...more

I once tried to read this book once. But i didnt really understand it .Then i came across it a month ago.I heard people's opinions based upon this book.Some say that Uncle Tom sucked up to white people but thats NOT the case.In the book the charatcer worshiped and loved GOD. In the Bible it states love one another even your emenies. That what Uncle Tom did. As for the book it was goood. I liked how the book was set inn diffenet point of views. 5 stars for me!:)

This is one you read just because landmark books like this should be on every bibliophiles' bucket list. By the time you read them, the subject matter has been covered so many times, and so well, elsewhere, that the one that broke the barrier is tame by comparison. But you read it to give you some perspective of how far we've come that this was once scandalous, and sort of to pay respect to the author who went there first.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book for many reasons. Being religious myself, I loved the message of braveness and fighting for what you believe in. The reader falls into the story of slaves and understand the message that men who have nothing can be so much more than men who have something. This novel does not take any corners where the villain turns out to be good, etc. Miller creates a strong foundation for the characters and conveys a moving message. I would recommend this to people who have a lo ...more

This is the second time I have read this book. The first being as a child in school for a book report. Inhumanity, justified by the Bible and freedom and humanity, justified by the Bible. An excellent book exposing the true injustice of the slave life and how faith can withstand all and give strength.

I do not consider myself a religious person but rather spiritual, and even I am moved by the strength of the main character, Tom, and his faith in God.

Very insightful into the life of the slaves, and how some men who have nothing can be so much better off then those who have a lot. This book is amazing because it doesn't just talk about the bad, but shows the reader the good in many people, and make the reader want to model themselves after them. Those characters that are bad are really bad, and makes even the most supportive reader cringe at the text.

The Great books objection thus far to this book is that it is not great writing, but although I admit that it is more plot driven than your average classic, it deserves to remain a classic. i am in awe the themes that she was brave enough to introduce with varied nuance to the audience of her time. Had not read this in over thirty years and am glad I reread it.

I believed it was a great book for civil right activist, as it was it's purpose. I enjoyed the difference in the choice of my reading.

A book of much importance, by a weak writer with only a poor sense of both the subject matter and the craft of writing.

its racist. its moderate (she's for american colonization society), and its almost cartoonish. but if you've not read a novel for too long, and are an sentimental then you'll enjoy all three stars.
