In this anti-slavery novel by the American author Harriet Beecher Stowe, Uncle Tom's Cabin is centered on the character of Uncle Tom, a long-suffering black slave around whom the stories of other characters - both fellow slaves and slave owners - revolve. This emotional novel portrays the reality of slavery while also stressing that Christian love can defeat something as damaging as enslavement of fellow human beings. Uncle Tom's Cabin was the best-selling book in the 19th century, and second best-selling following the Bible.

Good try - a heartbreaking and world-altering book

The narrator does his level best to bring the formidably large character list to life. With some (like Uncle Tom) he succeeds magnificently, giving the hero of the tale a suitably majestic and resonant timbre. With some of the other characters, he fails. But let's forgive him. This book was a world changer, helping to advance the abolitionist cause and with it, the eventual removal of that horrific stain on the American conscience, slavery.

The Narrater

With audio books as we know the narrater play a very big part in making a book come alive.
This book is 50/50, Sean Crisden has an unexciting voice when reading but his characters are great,
very lively.

The Narrator's Performance is AMAZING!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, because the narrator was able to bring the book to life beautifully.

What did you like best about this story?

I enjoyed how Harriet Beecher Stowe showed a different side of slavery up-close and personally. She was able to allow the reader to connect with the characters and really get to know them on a deeper level.

What about Sean Crisden’s performance did you like?

Sean did an amazing job! He had a different voice for every character, which made it easy to tell who was speaking. The voices he was able to do were simply wonderful - he brought each and every character alive. The way he allowed each character to speak showed so much more depth about their personalities.

If you could take any character from Uncle Tom's Cabin out to dinner, who would it be and why?

Uncle Tom, because he has so many valuable and coveted positive character traits and is a truly good person. I would try to learn some life lessons from him.

Any additional comments?

I had to read this book for school, and Sean Crisden really helped me to get into the book. I'm not a huge "bookworm," so having the audio was great!

Amazing Story...Emotionally Stirring Performance..

What did you love best about Uncle Tom's Cabin?

This performance is unlike any other others. I was amazed by how the author, through the performers, described the characters, as if you actually knew them ... I empathized with them and experienced their lives. I enjoyed the multi-voice discourse among the characters. I loved the twists and turns of the story.
