    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!
  • 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.

    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.

    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.

    I wonder why Harriet is recognized as the only author when she only wrote the ending the book. Most of it was actually written by the former Slave Uncle Tom himself.

    Very difficult to read due to the unusual style and terminology. However, it gives good insight into the reasons the US Government needed to crush the foolish Confederacy. I now have great admiration for the character Uncle Tom, and a great disdain for people who, today use the label "Uncle Tom" derisively; they are despicably ignorant.

    My history teacher told me or taught me about this book and what it was about, so I decided to read it. It is truly amazing, I have no words.
