Uncle Tom's Cabin (Harriet Beecher Stowe) Book Reviews

Christian propagandaSo many pages are filled with bible verses. Maybe it is just a reflection of that time but it felt like the author was trying to get me to become a Christian. Having faith is nice but this was just over the top for me. The characters were interesting but I really just stuck with it to the end since it is considered a literary classic. It’s really not a book that I would recommend. (And why did Stowe have the same name for some characters??).Score: 2/5

Life ChangingThis is the best book I’ve read in a very long time. I’m not sure why I haven’t read it sooner. It’s a call to all Christian men and women to stand up for those who can’t stand up for themselves. In this book, the atrocity is slavery. In today’s world, it’s abortion. We must pray, begging God to stop the violence among us..Score: 5/5

Uncle Tom's CabinVery 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..Score: 4/5

Not a good book, worth reading for history, howeverThis book is seriously irritating. There are useless descriptions all over the place that serve no purpose and thus unnecessarily pad the book. Not to mention that the author delves way too much into things that aren’t very important. The book should be a little more than 300 if it chopped out all the unnecessary stuff. A LOT of the book is just bathos (insincere pathos, almost melodramatic) which I guess was fine at the time, but now, it’s just too mushy. Seriously. There’s no way Eva, a child of one of the characters, can be that “perfect” and in-depth. Sure, it may be symbolic, but I can’t read it without laughing. Imagine a little girl on her deathbed, and with her last breaths, saying things meant for a philosopher. Makes no sense. Bottom line is, I didn’t like the book. You, however, might if you like overly dramatic books..Score: 2/5

Uncle Toms CabinI had heard many bad comments concerning this book and after reading this for myself have to wonder why all Americans of all races do not now look back at this time by reading this book. It is full of encouraging scripture and will touch the heart of anyone who takes it up to read. It gives us a small glimpse at that time and also allows us to witness not just the despicable Simon Legree and other people and the atrocities that were committed but also gives a window into the hearts of the true heroes we would never otherwise have know. Great read!.Score: 5/5

Uncle Toms CabinOne of the best books I have ever read. So emotional at times that I had to put the book down to compose myself. Excellently written..Score: 5/5

A Lopsided Look Into The PastDecent book, however, it could have carried its own weight a lot better without the author pummeling the reader with her thinly-veiled, long-winded, and bombastic opinions and feelings. I think it would have made a better impact had the reader been left to formulate their own thoughts on this disturbing era in our history. The odd comma splices and verbiage also gave me headaches. To be honest, I was tired and very glad when I finished it..Score: 3/5

Inspiring spiritually and virtuouslyThe most inspiring book based on true events I have ever read! A heart wrenching tale of love, forgiveness, tragedy, fulfillment, strength, courage, and God! A dramatic, persuasive story telling of the evils of not only slavery but it's masters. And yet even in the midst of this virtue is found, courage, and Christianity is found. In the midst of this darkness there is a light that will never go out! This is not just about slavery but of the virtues of a true Christian and how God can work through us to bring others to him! Harriet Beecher Stowe, you have created a masterpiece!.Score: 5/5

A Must Read for Every ChristianI can't express enough how inspiring, thought-provoking, convicting, and moving this story is. I've heard and learned academic all about the horrors and the injustice of slavery in America throughout my academic career, yet nothing compares to the flesh and blood "reality" of "Uncle Tom's Cabin." As I read the story, I was convicted by the different responses to slavery from the White-Christians. Each member of the church had a reason for their belief based primarily on the location of their church in the states rather than the Word of God. In fact, it is Tom's child-like faith that provides him strength and converts others due to his reflection of Christ's love..Score: 5/5

Uncle Tom’s CabinAn Amazing piece of literature!! A book every American needs to read. So relevant in our modern history!!! I originally decided to read this book to find out why the phrase “Don’t be an Uncle Tom“. Never quite understood the reference . I could have looked it up on the Internet but I rather thought, I’ll read the book and find out for myself. My oh my! So glad I did. The negative connotation of “Don’t be an Uncle Tom“ does such a disservice to the profound and essential message of this book! I’m no youngster with advanced degrees and this may be one of the most impactful and best books I have ever read!!!.Score: 3/5

Just AwesomeI had always heard of Uncle Tom's Cabin as a book ridiculed by blacks. Uncle Tom was to be hated and shunned. However one must keep in mind it was written in 1850 at the height of slavery. It's purpose was to expose the cruelty of slavery and I believe to show the grace of Jesus Christ. Stowe reflects that grace through Tom's struggles and devotion to the Lord. His focus on eternity in the midst of struggling in a basket of sin and persecution emulates Christ's walk to the cross. Tom's desire to forgive and see his tormentors come to repentance is a sure reflection of God's love for all of us. This is a powerful book and must have struck to the very heart of slavery across the world in the 1850's. I pray the God will touch your heart with his grace and mercy. For we are all sinners..Score: 5/5

An ongoing issueAs I read this book, I remembered the millions of undocumented immigrants, who now face the issues that the slaves faced in the 1800's. Living in the shadows without a voice, being separated from their families, etc. We must all learn from this book to fight for those who cannot fight. To use our voices for change this coming November..Score: 4/5

Uncle Tom’s CabinAn amazing author and amazing book. A thorough look back at our country’s dark history. The author is honest and is not afraid to call out the faults of our nation & make all sides accountable for this unforgettable, inhumane cruelty: slavery..Score: 5/5

Historically significantI rated this book far higher than warranted by the quality of the writing because of its historical significance as an effort by a white woman to describe the plight of the enslaved persons of African descent in the U.S. including not only those supporting slavery but also the hypocrisy of anti-slavery persons in New England and elsewhere. Language is unacceptable today and most descriptions of African Americans seems quite cliched. Also seems the author supported the Liberian solution (former slaves should return to Africa). Author observed and credited the intelligence of slaves, former slaves and free blacks and supported the need to educate and to support education of this group, not a vision shared by most in her society..Score: 3/5

Every American Should Read itHarriet 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..Score: 5/5

I cried so hard in certain section I could not read. She brought the characters to life. I felt like I knew them. My heart broke for the families pulled apart and sold off.

Today, England's and America's capitalism still enslaves men of all colour and the dark skinned are still oppressed. Not much has changed.
