About the Author

As an urban child, Barbara's getaway from the noise and fast paced city was escaping into the world of books. She lived the lives of characters and subsequently played with alternative scenarios in her own imagination. She created her own plots, added her own role, and changed the world. When she grew up, she realized just how little a person can change in the society, but the habit of alternative scenarios remained. In her own words, Barbara describes her writing as:

"The most talented writer in the world is the life itself, and my books are alternative scenarios of what I read in it."

Often, you will recognize the seeds of her imaginary future dystopian societies in our present, and hopefully it will make you look at things differently. The books she writes deal with intelligent individuals, well-educated, absolutely aware of the world around them, well-read, wise; and their clash with societies whose targets are usually those individuals. Why intelligent and wise individuals are dangerous to any regime is best described in this quote by Osho:

"No Society Wants You to Become Wise"

No society wants you to become wise: it is against the investment of all societies. If people are wise they cannot be exploited. If they are intelligent they cannot be subjugated, they cannot be forced into a mechanical life, to live like robots. They will assert themselves--they will assert their individuality. They will have the fragrance of rebellion around them; they will want to live in freedom...

Format: Kindle Edition
This story had me going from happy to sad to happy quite a few times. Stella is a young female living with her parent in a country that doesn't care very much about them. She is hardworking and educated with a good heart. Even though her situation is depressing she still has morals and Ethics. She is a strong young female that is thrown in so many heartbreaking situations. Yet they can not break her she grows into a strong adult and she gets a second chance for love.

I was close to tears, my heart was jumping for joy, I was sadden....this story had me on a roller coaster with all the feelings I went though. I loved it. I like stories that have my heart pumping and my emotions going. So well described that I can see the county where she lived the county where she got to visit with Chris and then with James and Mark. I can see the ghetto and those in the rich countries.

I loved Chris; he was so thoughtful, rich and cute. I wish it could have been a little different for him in the story. I am glad that Stella got to meet him but was surprised the story took on their relationship. Didn't see that coming!

I highlighted a lot in this story, something I normal do not do, a lot of the passages jumped out at me. Such as "They cost us our jobs! They took all important jobs in the country, and look where we are now" & "Men volunteered to go to war, proud to be able to defend their county, and soon after, the country drafted all the rest" it sounds so close to home with the immigration issue and the war overseas.

I truly enjoyed this story very much it's a keeper. Fast past with a lot of action and romance. Thanks to the author for providing me with a e-copy of the stoy for an honest review.

I really like this book, happy, sad, angry and happy again, these are all the emotions that came out of me when I read this book, I read this in one day and I loved it. I believed it and it felt real to me, the only problem was that to me it was too short. I wish it was longer, but I still love this book.

Story is interesting and engaging. I also like how Stella found love and happiness. The settings and situations were vividly described. The love affair was full of excitement and wisdom - not necessarily something that would otherwise blend together so well.
There was some twist and turn that make it even more interesting. Overall, I did enjoy this novel due to the strong storyline and surprises that it throws at you. If you like your love stories to be unique, and not on the "romance style" of writing, this book is for you!

Some fascinating ideas have been explored here, with excellent results. The age-old themes of rich versus poor, privileged versus oppressed and love that transcends boundaries are always interesting ones that provoke an emotional reaction (often a tearful one!). There are certainly tragic elements to the story.

The characters are very warm, relatable and engaging (not the bad guys of course - they are ruthless and unscrupulous, as they're supposed to be!). There are some major plot twists along the way that keep you guessing, one particularly comes as a surprise and gives you one of those "wow" moments, which I always enjoy. The main character Stella struggles with certain disastrous personal events in her life, as well as some positive and unexpected ones. We follow her personal journey throughout the story.

This is a very intriguing and engaging story, and if you give it a go you won't be disappointed! It is intelligently-written, extremely creative and well-constructed and really draws you in and keeps your attention for the entirety of the story. Clearly, a lot of thought and love has gone into this story. It is essentially dystopian but has many different overlapping-genre elements, such as sci-fi, romance, perhaps even thriller etc. (We can only hope that real life does not deteriorate to this sad state of affairs in future, as described in the book!).

It has a happy ending, which is my favorite kind! It is also a satisfying, decent length (like a "real" book should be!). A truly high-quality read. I highly recommend this for people looking for a "meaty", all-absorbing read that they can really become involved in and sink their teeth into.

What a fantastic storyline this is. Once I started reading this, eventually Arthur C. Clarke's 3001: The Final Odyssey came into my mind. Though the stories are different in nature, the author of this book, 'Barbara' comes up with a future economic crisis which would happen in 2032. Who can predict that this won't happen in 2032 when thinking about the pattern of the current world is experiencing through. The theme in the storyline is great which keeps the reader hooked into the book. Apart from the crisis, Barbara has added some romantic moves onto the plot to keep the story live.

Barriers Of The New World has every element of a dystopian society, and Rayne has written a compelling and vivid description of country 189. Stella, the main character is a strong woman. She's smart, driven and completely in love with her boss. Her new job was an opportunity of a lifetime in a country who's population are deemed stupid, and lazy and therefore are fodder for the factories. Destitution depression and near starvation are more the norm than the exception. Stella has found a way out and it will change everything but she must choose what side she's on. I enjoyed reading Rayne's book, and I loved the character of stella. It's awesome to read of a strong smart and independent character like her, who isn't just backdrop for the male egos in the book. I recommend Barriers of The New World. It's definitely worth your time!
