This young lady is unique and extraordinary because all despicable behavior that humans can inflict, she experienced first hand. It took me awhile to listen to the book, because I could not stop crying. I thought my childhood was awful, this is the most awful case of child abuse,everyone has failed Precious. I am dumbfounded that Precious states in the last part of her book, "I don't hate no one". I really do not know if I could not hate after living thru abuse such as what she lived. She is truly a wonderful person.
I couldn't stop listening to this book. It was very good. Once again, it was adventurous, some historical content, and just all around enjoyable. I learned about a people who were not treated the best upon entering this country. In fact they were not treated to well in there country. It was interesting to learn their perspective about our customs and culture. I really enjoyed the book and have listened to it two times already.
This book was written very well. The characters in the story are adventurous, lively, and real. The author reminded me of one of my favorite authors, John Steinback in that he did not miss a chance to explain in detail about geographical area, customs of the people, and his very much respect for the people. It was a humbling experience when I listened to this book. I felt as though I were on an adventure. I came away with knowledge about a people on the other side of the earth. I've listen to this book three times so far and will listen many more times to come.
