Review: Uncle Tom’s Cabin

Uncle Tom's Cabin
Uncle Tom’s Cabin by Harriet Beecher Stowe
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

No idea why it took me so long to get around to reading this. It felt good to read something that portrayed slavery in the United States where the slaves were both treated as property and subhuman. Books like Gone With the Wind treat slaves as secondary family members.

Uncle Tom bothered me throughout the book. While maybe there were people who maintained such loyalty to both God and master. Pretty sure I would have been more of a George and figured a way to escape.
