Uncle Tom's Cabin
Author: Harriet Beecher Stowe
An international bestseller that sold more than 300,000 copies when it first appeared in 1852, Uncle Tom's Cabin was dismissed by some as abolitionist propaganda; yet Tolstoy deemed it a great work of literature "flowing from love of God and man." — Today, however, Harriet Beecher Stowe's stirring indictment of slavery is often confused wi...  more »

It is said that this book helped Abraham Lincoln to solidify his stand against slavery and might have even been instrumental in the war.
This book includes input from people Harriet Beecher Stowe met who were escaping slavery. Though its a novel the accounts are historical. To deny that would be comparable to denying the holocost.
This book is written in the language of the time and is not easy for the young reader.
I found it heart rending and inspiring at the same time.

This is one of those classics that I feel is over-rated. It's wordy, melodramatic and, ironically, rascist. But it certainly left it's mark on history, so I'll give credit where credit is due!

Yet another classic slave era story, I really enjoyed this book. I felt very connected to the characters of the novel.

This was a book that was covered while I was in highschool. I can't say much of what I thought of it then; I don't think I thought much of it at all. I recently took this out at the library to give it another go and my opinion is completely different. It is a little difficult to read because some words are written exactly as the would phonetically sound, but the story is fantastic. I loved it the second time around and can certainly understand why it is considered a classic.
