Uncle Tom's Cabin

Gelesen von John Greenman

(4,6 Sterne; 1490 Bewertungen)

Among the most “banned” books in the United States, Uncle Tom’s Cabin; or, Life Among the Lowly is a novel by American author Harriet Beecher Stowe which treats slavery as a central theme. Stowe was a Connecticut-born teacher at the Hartford Female Academy and an active abolitionist. The novel is believed to have had a profound effect on the North’s view of slavery. In fact, when he met Harriet Beecher Stowe, President Lincoln is said to have commented, “So you’re the little lady whose book started the Civil War.” First published on March 20, 1852, the story focuses on the tale of Uncle Tom, a long-suffering black slave, the central character around whose life the other characters—both fellow slaves and slave owners—revolve. The novel depicts the harsh reality of slavery while also showing that Christian love and faith can overcome even something as evil as enslavement of fellow human beings.

Note From the Reader: The listener is about to enter a world rich with diverse characters. In order to differentiate between the characters, the reader has given each, his/her own voice. As an adult male reader, however, the reader's representation of women and children will, necessarily be less than adequate. He asks for your indulgence.

Awesome

(5 Sterne)

Okay. So it took a long time for me to want to listen to this book. So far, so good. I've been able to listen st work and the day has flown by. But whoever is reading is awesome! I love the voiced. it brings the story to life. Also, this book has angered me. What I mean is, slavery is awful! I was so angry how families are torn apart and Tom's good natured attitude about it. The author touches on all types of characters, from the good hearted to the most evil. Awesome, intriguing book. I see why it was banned in the south. It definitely stirs up some emotions.

A must-read

(5 Sterne)

In my mind this book should be a part of required reading for all high schoolers. It makes my blood boil to think of all the atrocities that were committed in our country's past against the slaves. However, it also makes my blood boil when those *past* atrocities are brought up again and again and thrown in our faces. The past is the past and here and now I truly believe ALL men have available to them all the resources they need to make something of themselves. This book gives a very vivid image of the horrors of slavery and can help those in the subsequent generations to have a clearer view of our history. May we each take it to heart and learn from our past that it is never right for us to take away the freedom of any race. That all men are created equal in the image of God and therefore must be given equal opportunities. Not more, not less, but equal. A word about this recording - John Greenman is an excellent book reader and gives much more color to this reading by his vocal changes for the characters.

This is a wonderful read. I read it in my youth . As a Southern white lady brought up In rural Alabama I first began to live Author's. Then I loved writings of those. Before first grade I learned to read by myself. I later received an earned doctorate degree in reading from The University of Alabama along with my degree in Education Leadership. My love for my fellow blacks began in my earliest years be reading stories stories about their lives. Not so much of hate but what foods they enjoyed as kids, like me. As I matured I read Uncle Toms Cabin and fell in love with him. Later I would choose to teach at an Historically Black University. Love is the answer to all the racism. My daughter follows in my footsteps without me trying to get her to follow. Did Harriet Beecher Stowe start a war? I say, No, she opened the door of love for my family. By the way I am a conservative Christian.

excellent

(5 Sterne)

an excellent work in its time. if this message had had the time and patience, been given with the earnetsness and love of fellow man that we see in Tom, Evangeline, and Stowe... then the Civil war need not have happened in order to end slavery. oh how sad that righteous words and sentiments might be used as fuel for those that would kill and oppress thier brothers. not only the south oppressing and killing slaves, but the north oppressing and killing the south. love works slower than violence, but better and shurer. If love had been given the time to end slavery, these arguments instead of law and guns... there might have been no room for riots and race bitterness which still show thier heads even today. It would have worked a more perfect solution and healing in the world than the bandage of dominance.

Amazing!!!

(5 Sterne)

This has been a book I've wanted to read for years but had trouble getting through it due to the slang and old English in it. The reader literally made the story come alive for me. I felt like I was right in the middle of the story. I'm also impressed with all the different voices and accents he did for each of the characters. That takes talent! I have been able to get this book checked off my bucket list thanks to this reader. Thanks again and I would highly recommend this audio book to anyone :)

Good story awesome narration

(4 Sterne)

I havent finished the story yet however the consept is great. The narrator is the same person who read The "The Advantures of huckleberry fin." and "The Adventures of Tom sawer." I'm not sure but I think this narrator reads a lot of 18th century books if I'm honest I prefer the two books previously mentioned but this one is not at all bad I just found d the plot less riviting and as a consequence less easy to follow especailly because there are so many different lives and perspectives within this story I will update this review after I finish the book the story reveals a lot about the thoughts feelings and view points of il informed americans who felt there were doing the right and just thing by slavery even from a biblical or christan persepctive its just shows how men have a tendancy to bend words to suit their own purposes.

Great Book

(5 Sterne)

It's a shame this book was banned, but it is understandable. The atrocities described in this book were quite vivid that it would be hard to try and imagine a person going through those experiences. However, this is our history for both blacks and whites. Stay woke, racism/slavery still exists. Racists/White Supremacist still use the bible as their justification to mistreat blacks yet still don't know their history. Blacks still being denied jobs and human rights when they helped build this nation with other minorities. But there is still good amongst all the evil swirling around. Lend a helping hand when you can, you never know what good can occur from this. Stay woke. Know your history. I've always wanted to read this book, although it wasn't required of me back in school. Finally, at work, I was able to do so. Thankful for it!!

I was touched by this story. It was so very well written and well read, also. It is an emotional story in the sense that you at once feel angry and ready to burst into tears as you hear of the treatment, sufferings and then victories of the slaves. My only disappointment was the inclusion of strong language. I should like to hear a version with that eliminated so that I may perhaps share it with the higher grade levels at the school in which I teach. If not for this hindrance, I would've gladly given 5 stars.
