Publisher's Summary

In this anti-slavery novel by the American author Harriet Beecher Stowe, Uncle Tom's Cabin is centered on the character of Uncle Tom, a long-suffering black slave around whom the stories of other characters - both fellow slaves and slave owners - revolve. This emotional novel portrays the reality of slavery while also stressing that Christian love can defeat something as damaging as enslavement of fellow human beings.

The Narrator's Performance is AMAZING!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, because the narrator was able to bring the book to life beautifully.


What did you like best about this story?

I enjoyed how Harriet Beecher Stowe showed a different side of slavery up-close and personally. She was able to allow the reader to connect with the characters and really get to know them on a deeper level.


What about Sean Crisden’s performance did you like?

Sean did an amazing job! He had a different voice for every character, which made it easy to tell who was speaking. The voices he was able to do were simply wonderful - he brought each and every character alive. The way he allowed each character to speak showed so much more depth about their personalities.


If you could take any character from Uncle Tom's Cabin out to dinner, who would it be and why?

Uncle Tom, because he has so many valuable and coveted positive character traits and is a truly good person. I would try to learn some life lessons from him.


Any additional comments?

I had to read this book for school, and Sean Crisden really helped me to get into the book. I'm not a huge "bookworm," so having the audio was great!

Amazing Story...Emotionally Stirring Performance..

What did you love best about Uncle Tom's Cabin?

This performance is unlike any other others. I was amazed by how the author, through the performers, described the characters, as if you actually knew them ... I empathized with them and experienced their lives. I enjoyed the multi-voice discourse among the characters. I loved the twists and turns of the story.
