Description

UNCLE TOM’S CABIN by Harriet Beecher Stowe (unabridged) is presented by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below).

“One of the greatest productions of the human mind.” (Tolstoy)

In this passionate indictment of slavery, Uncle Tom is a high-minded, devout black slave to a kind family, the Shelbys. Beset by financial difficulties, the Shelbys sell Tom to a slave trader. The story relates Uncle Tom’s trials, suffering, and religious fortitude.

The book’s political impact was immense, its emotional influence immeasurable.

Self-contained, this audiobook app is perfect for your commute, on a trip, or while relaxing. Based on a library-quality recording, this app was built especially for your iPhone and iPod Touch. No unreadable text, no endless scrolling on a tiny screen. The audio is of higher-than-normal quality, making for a great listening experience that will not tire your ears or grate on your nerves.

NOTICE: This app includes the exact same 5-star recording offered elsewhere at much higher prices. It was professionally recorded by Blackstone Audio’s Earphones®-winning narrator, Mirron Willis. You are not buying yet another amateur or volunteer narration. No clicks, background noises, throat clearing, mispronunciations, tinny voices or monotones will be found here.

“Uncle Tom’s Cabin is the most powerful and enduring work of art ever written about American slavery.” (Alfred Kazin)
