This is an amazing book. At the same time in places very naive, besides, filled with Christian motifs and cruel, terrible pain. Of course, it is quite possible to be accused of being too two-dimensional characters – most of them are divided into positive and negative it is very categorical. Among the most controversial recall, perhaps, only two: Mr. Saint-Clair: honest and good-natured man, he is not able to be cruel, but it is too easy and indifferent to try to change, or at least spend a force to raise their own slaves. It is easier to put up with laziness, stealing and stupidity than to take part in an event. And his cousin Ophelia – full of high ideals, but irrationally fearful of blacks and not finding the strength to admit it or handle it. Only these two changes in the course of the novel, and something to learn.
The rest of the heroes once and for all take a certain niche, no longer leave the occupied position.

When you imagine a man beaten to death just impotent awareness that it is better to host.
This novel – a novel memory. A more novel lesson novel reminder of what each of us can become if he wants, a novel-motivator.
