    "Interesting Book"

    This book is an interesting book with an interesting storyline about making money, who is in the inner circle as one climbs the latter, and how to do it. I think the author could have done a better job with character development, but in terms of narration, the narrator had a good voice and was an easy flow between characters.

    However, as a Black American woman, it was a bit disappointing that the author's focus seemed to be on describing all the (Black) women in the book as having exotic physical characteristics (i.e. green or hazel or rainbow colored eyes, half Black-Asian, biracial, Brazilian, etc.), as if being Black with regular features was not pretty or attractive enough. After a while, hearing that description constantly got old. Anyway, the plot was interesting in terms of ways to make money, and the end was humorous in terms of who to settle down with.

    Mr. Tyree is a good writer, but I hope all of his books are not on the theme of describing (Black) women constantly in the way that he described them throughout this book, especially since he is listed under African American writers, and knowing that many of his writers/listeners are Black women. That part was the only turn-off and will make some Black American women not want to recommend it to other Black women listeners. Recommend otherwise for the storyline.

    "Surprisingly Engaging!!!!!"

    O.T. had been a hit and miss a few books ago. I was a diehard fan beginning with Fly Girl. I read everything he signed his name to during that time frame. Then he got a bit mundane. Pecking Order is classis Tyree with huge growth. I was surprisingly engaged. I would actually read the book. Some books are only good via audio; I think this would be an easy and intriguing read. I would not put this down. GOOD STUFF!! Really Good Stuff!!

    "Bored to tears!"

    I have been reading Omar Tyree books for as long as I could remember but this was the worst one for me. His detail & info he provided was great if you are looking to motivate someone to get in that type of business. Yet fir just a good read it was so boring. I don't mind long reads but it was too long full of nothing but crunching numbers and so on. I finished it even tho I didn't want to but never again will I read it. It was very disappointing but that's just my opinion the plot was not there.

    Story
    "This novel left much to be desired."
    What would have made Pecking Order better?

    The story was flat. The main characters are not believable.


    What was most disappointing about Omar Tyree’s story?

    The focus was the business Ivan was building. The relationships were one dimensional. It reads more like a manual for urban marketing techniques.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Kevin R. Free’s performances?

    Not an engaging performance.


    Any additional comments?

    Sadly, no.

    "Was it just me?"

    I didn't really enjoy this book. I thought it was boring and for the most part uneventful. Would have like to see more drama.
