It is said that this book helped Abraham Lincoln to solidify his stand against slavery and might have even been instrumental in the war.
This book includes input from people Harriet Beecher Stowe met who were escaping slavery. Though its a novel the accounts are historical. To deny that would be comparable to denying the holocost.
This book is written in the language of the time and is not easy for the young reader.
I found it heart rending and inspiring at the same time.

This was a book that was covered while I was in highschool. I can't say much of what I thought of it then; I don't think I thought much of it at all. I recently took this out at the library to give it another go and my opinion is completely different. It is a little difficult to read because some words are written exactly as the would phonetically sound, but the story is fantastic. I loved it the second time around and can certainly understand why it is considered a classic.

This is a powerful story of the ills of slavery. The characters come alive and make you feel like you are a part of the story. I really enjoyed the strong females in the book and the portrayal of slavery and its effects on families and individuals. I found this book to be a compelling story and hard to put down. I highly recommend it.

This is a MUST READ for everybody. I waited 40 years to read this book and now wish I would have read it when I was required. However, I think I got a lot more out of it today than I would have back then.
