    haven't seen the movie yet, but the book was one i won't soon forget. it is bold in the subject matter it deals with, and it is interesting especially in its use of a 1st person narrative voice that evolves grammatically over time as the story and Precious' education progresses. i have to agree that i felt left hanging by the ending, even though regonized that the story was one that was told in-progress. that being said, i thought the book (more so with the movie) was a bit overhyped. definitely worth a read, but not the best piece of literature i've read by a mile.

    Good book, read it in an afternoon. the book presents many issues that are real- the movie picked up the essence of the book. thought the book and the movie ended short. i know you cant do everything in a book or a movie.-just saying. and i believe monique - she hit it out the park.. gabbie was great too.

    This movie was great, I just think Mariah Carey Sucked in her role, I'm pretty sure they could have found a better actress to play her role, I did not read the book before seeing the movie however the film has made me want to read the book. Monique by the way I believe her name was Precious's mother in the film did a wonderful job .

    The only thing I didnt really like about this book was all the cursing which I thought was just unnecessary but other than that the book had a great story. I would also say it wasnt long enough.

    This book is a straight forward way to expose people who read the book to a unspoken society that I have seen or heard of in my growing up. The book is about a 16 year old girl, who has an abusive mother and two children by her own father. Precious is illiterate and has faced issues that no one would comprehend. It is heartbreaking to know that this happens to people. Sapphire has wrote this book in the words of Precious.
