I loved this book. I will admit that it wasn't an easy read. But I was determined to finish it anyway. It had so many valuable life lessons that I don't have the space or time to mention them all. I strongly recommend it for christians to read, because we do sometimes forget how to hold on to our faith, when times are bad. I laughed and cried, and I feel so much more enlightened now about faith and love. I hope I'll never forget the teachings in this book.

Uncle Tom's cabin is a very touching story telling the life of a family of slaves. Uncle Tom is the heart of the story working on Mr. Shelbys farm. He has a wife and a son and he even has is own little cabin that Mr. Shelby has supplied him. Tom was happy there and the tought of escaping never crossed his mind. He believed that God put him there for a reason.
Writen by Harriet Beecher Stowe, this touching story is unforgettable. The story sets in the south on a slave plantation were the slaves work for their owners and the thought of being sold to a different owner stays with them everyday.
Not only does this story talk about the story of time but it is filled with charecters from all walks of life ranging from the runnaway slaves tht tells the struggles they go through and all of the heartache they experiance when the two get seperated.
Not only do the slaves suffer but their family does as well. Tom has a son and for the most of his little life he won't understand why his dad has left.
For most of Tom's journey through this book he gets traded from owner to owner and finaly gets settled in with an abusive, angered and strict man. Tom still finds away to keep faith and believes that God will light the way. Plus he meets some odd charectors throughout the story like Topsy a daranged and clumsy little slave girl that finds fun in entertaining anyone who will watch.
I would recomend this book to everyone and anyone because it teaches you the morals of life and that no matter what always keep faith because Tom never lost hope and he found the light in the most dimmest moments because he knew that God was always on his side protecting him
This book is a must read because it has a lot of historical facts and it gives you a glimpse into the eyes of a different race and what they had to experience.

    Good book

    Ok, the books slow at first and you almost want to stop reading, (at least thats how i felt) but then it gets really good, i promise. Its so sad the thungs that happen yet there are jyst do my joyous points aswell. You will laugh, cry, maybe even yell but it'll al be worth it, trust me.

    Uncle Tom's Cabin is Definitely on my list of historical books.

    Uncle Tom's Cabin transports its readers to a place of freedom and resilience. I would recommend this book to any history buff or middle school reader. I am definitely going to read more books by this author. This novel is perfect for group discussion.
