4.0 étoiles sur 5 Sobering still 8 juillet 2014
Par Michael B. Grant - Publié sur

I have heard about this book my whole life but never understood what it was about. If, like me you make the assumption that it is a book about a slave that "sells out his own race", which is the definition of Uncle Tom that I gathered by looking at television and hearing the term used, you will surely miss the entire point of this book. Instead, the book is about a slave that is steadfast in his beliefs and principles. A man that holds on to his faith in Jesus. I really don't get the common use of the term after reading this.

Every one should read this book. It can be a hard read as it is a glimpse into a dark period in history.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A captivating story! 17 avril 2013

The book catches the attention of the reader from the beginning. But throughout I kept wondering why this book brought about such a stir for change. Though the stories told by the writer were accurate accounts of the times I'm sure, I kept thinking they were too mild a depiction of the atrocities that had actually occurred. I kept thinking "how could such a timid account of the institution of slavery have stirred our nation so?" I wondered, "where is the grotesque, the horrors, why am I reading a happily ever after accounting of such an awful institution. To be sure this was not what I was expecting to read. This couldn't be the book history has claimed to have stirred our country to begin to finally consider the abolition of such a horrible scourge afflicting the nation.

Then I get to the last Chapter where our author brings to account both the North and the South. Both are held responsible, both are guilty. The South for carrying out the atrocities and the North for standing by allowing it to continue. But our author didn't stop there. She went on to throw blame and guilt on the leaders of Christianity for twisting God's Word to justify the actions of both North and South. Both sides could not be right and the treatment of slaves in the North was not what it should have been if one believed in the Word of God. After reading the last Chapter I applaud Harriet Beecher Stowe for having the courage to write such a book in such a trying time as our nation was living then. She was truly a woman of courage and inspiration. I wish I had read this years ago and I highly recommend it to all who are interested in the history of this country.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A classic 24 février 2014

I'm sorry I waited until I was in my 70's to read this classic. Slavery can never be put in a good light. Harriet Beecher Stowe emphasized the breaking up of families with tenderness and compassion. We cannot undo what was done but can certainly move forward and love all mankind and treat one another as we want to be treated.

I had never read it before, but was curious to see what calling some one an "Uncle Tom" meant. I am not sure why we never had to read this book in High School. I was shocked to find that contrary to popular belief, Uncle Tom, as depicted in the book, was not a sell out to his race. In fact (spoiler alert), he was a martyr, and went out of his way to protect his own. The true villains of the story are Simon Legree, but more villainous are Sambo and Quimbo who do actually sell out their race to curry favors with their heinous white master. Some parts of the book are difficult to read because of the phonetic spelling used for the ways the slaves spoke. Sartain for Certain, etc. Slavery is a part of the American narrative, and this book provides the "feel" for that time. This is book now in the public domain, and therefore there is no excuse for anyone not to read the book.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Amazing and moving...Why isn't this REQUIRED reading in schools? 17 février 2013
Par Bob - Publié sur

Uncle Tom's Cabin was a book I KNEW about, but only as a historical artifact--a story that helped ignite the Civil War....but little else. The trivial fact that it was the first American novel to sell 1,000,000 copies was tucked away in my mind, and the disparaging label of someone being called an "Uncle Tom" was about the extent of my knowledge of Stowe's masterpiece.

Now, having read the entire book, I am ashamed at having never taken the time before. The power in the narrative and the characters in the story is enough to keep you turning the pages to see what happens next! To my surprise, even though it is more than 150 years old, it was not difficult to understand...

UTC essentially tells two stories at once--two slaves are set to be sold from a Kentucky plantation/farm they have lived all their lives. One is the older, well-respected Uncle Tom, and the other is the young, pretty Eliza. Tom accepts his fate, confident in his faith that God will protect him. Eliza, fearful of losing her child (with good reason) decides to run away to Ohio, where she hopes to find freedom.

Along the way, both of these good souls have trials and tribulations...times of fear, hope, friendships and pain. Nothing is guaranteed for them....and sometimes their travels through life are blessed, and sometimes they are shook by sudden, unexpected pain.

Tom's journey from Kentucky is primarily south; to a land where generally slaves are subject to much rougher conditions than in his native border state. Eliza, of course, is going north to Ohio, and eventually, she hopes, to Canada. But fugitive slaves are still hunted in Ohio, so there are no guarantees.

The most difficult part of the reading for me was getting acclimated to the style in which Stowe portrays the conversation of the slaves. Because the language is more coarse, uneducated and casual, it took a little while to completely understand what a slave was saying. At times, I had to stop and "sound out" what the words were, just to get the jist of what was meant. After a little while, though, this became easier.

The most surprising aspect of the story...and perhaps this explains the current absence of Stowe's novel in the modern mind...was the unambiguous and unapologetic Christian timber replete throughout the pages. Stowe rightfully believed that true Christianity did not endorse the idea of one man being the property of another. In her day, some religious leaders excused slavery in the states by creating contrived arguments supposedly developed from the Bible. Stowe challenges those preposterous notions headon!

UTC is filled with direct references to Scripture and Christian hymns. Even one of the most irreligious characters, a one-time owner of Tom, Augustine St. Clare, is able to see how the slave trade is altogether UN-Christian, though he also finds it difficult to give up his "servants".

The deeply religious Quakers, who help run the fugitive slaves to freedom, are also portrayed as true followers of Jesus. Most touching is how they even tend to the injuries of an evil bounty hunter--a man who would have killed them if it meant recapturing a slave.

Uncle Tom's faith is described in great detail, and his ability to endure in times of want reminds one of the Old Testament story of Job. He strives to maintain trust in his Savior.

My review ends here; to give away the ending might discourage someone from picking up the story and reading it for themselves. The time spent absorbing Stowe's novel is well-spent. One can fully understand how it shook the conscience of the nation in the 1850s.
