Narrated by Andrew L. Barnes
Narrator Andrew L. Barnes strikes a homerun again with this audio book
The Adventures of Uncle Tom, by author Thomas H.
Jones is another wonderful visit to the old South. Jones was a fugitive
slave, born in Wilmington, North Carolina. Uncle Tom is his
account of his life’s passage from slave to free man, complete with the
tragedies and triumphs that ensue.
Cincinnati narrator, Andrew L. Barnes, captures the southern sympathies
in his well-seasoned baritone voice that is hard to mimic. His natural
timing keeps the listener spellbound to the story and entices the
reader to believe he is hearing the story for the first time told by
Jones’s life pursuits are intriguing as he learns to read and
write in secret and uses his keen talents and risky friendships to
unite his family and free them from slavery while pursuing his own
freedom. The Adventures of Uncle Tom
is an interesting walk through the past when slavery was a recognized
and acceptable way of life for many. Yet, Jones gives the reader a
personally guided view of the tragic heroism of those who were bound in
life to this ill fate.
