Uncle Tom's Cabin was the best-selling novel of the 19th century and the second best-selling book of that century, following the Bible. It is credited with helping fuel the abolitionist cause in the 1850s. In 1855, three years after it was published, it was called "the most popular novel of our day." A thrilling and important piece of American literature!

Brilliant story, poor narration

Would you try another book written by Harriet Beecher Stowe or narrated by Mary Sarah?

I'd read another book by the author, but will definitely avoid this narrator in future.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Uncle Tom's Cabin?

There were many, some memorable because of the terrible tragedy of them,others for the heroism of the characters. Many of these scenes were based on true events.

How could the performance have been better?

Although the narrator has a good voice and used an appropriate accent, the performance was jerky, the expression often didn't match the meaning, and many words were mispronounced.I got the impression that the narrator had not practised before she made the recording.

Did Uncle Tom's Cabin inspire you to do anything?

It brought home to me the horrors of slavery, and it also helped me understand some of the complicated reasons why this abuse of human beings persisted and was so difficult to end.It inspires me to think about what abuses still continue today, to which I may be turning a blind eye and which I may feel more comfortable to leave unchallenged, in the way that many basically good people allowed slavery to continue unchallenged.

Any additional comments?

The author must have been courageous to write this famous book, and I understand it had a profound effect on the history of the United States.The narration unfortunately does not do it justice.

Excellent Narration

I had tried to get thru the first several chapters of Uncle Tom's Cabin on my own and trying to get the tone and demeanor of the southern vernacular was difficult and distracting for a New England native.
This narrator was so convincing in her reading that I felt like I was there as an observer.
Thanks so much for Audible.

I cringed, laughed, rooted for and cried throughout the book. I'm forever changed. Book was difficult to listen to most times but I'm glad I persevered.
