Description

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. 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. (Summary from wikipedia)


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.

Uncle Tom's Cabin
Reviewer willgroebe

This book is an amazingly well written and historically important piece of American literature. The reader does a good job of telling the story and imbuing certain characters with their own voices, and accents; especially Uncle Tom's.

I would recommend that when creating a voice for a character of the opposite sex, that the reader would not try to sound like a woman. Instead, just read in a lighter tone. Otherwise you run the risk of bordering on comedy.

All in all a great read, and I thank you for your recording.
