Praise for The Bar Code Tattoo

This book is definitely one to read if you are in to Action, and a little love.

Grace Morrow lives in the year 2026 a society where people think a little differently. Theres this thing called the barcode prophecy. The Barcode prophecy is where every young man and women when turning the age of 17 must get a barcode tattoo. To her that means becoming an adult. But to others its totally different. Her friend named Eric who she kind of likes works at the Bar code place. Ever sense Graces birthday was getting closer he always seemed against it, even though he already has one. So she has to decide whether or not to get the tattoo. But If you do refuse to be barcoded it seems like an assault to human rights. So when her 17th birthday came, after finally getting the tattoo realizes the truth of the prophecy.

I definitely enjoyed this book because its was easy to read and full of very interesting and exciting in every chapter. This book was one that I couldn't put down, because I had to keep reading to find out what happens next. (5 stars) Written by Emily, 7th grade

Format: Hardcover
My initial worry with reading this book was that it would disappoint me like most sequels I have read. Surprisingly, I felt myself enjoying this third book in the Bar Code series more so than the first book.

Grace Morrow, a young woman of seventeen years of age, was not a character I clicked with in the beginning. She's your typical teen heroine with "normal" girl problems like crushes and so forth. This actually bored me upon reading the beginning. My problem with her is that she seems quite complacent with her life. She is a rule follower and does not seemed all that concerned with the loss of personal liberties as long as her family is doing well, but then the book is an exploration of her growth in the surrounding circumstances. In the beginning, Grace is going through the coming of age ritual every seventeen year old in the year 2026 faces: the bar code tattoo. To her, it means adulthood, but to others it means much more. The resistance, which is against the tattoo, sees it as an assault to personal human rights, a humiliation to genetical predestination, and the empowerment of an "evil" corporation that is trying to take over the world. It is after accepting this mark that Grace finally begins her journey towards the truth and her destiny.

Enter Eric Chaka: three-quarters Native American, a rising rock-climbing star, and the hottie of the novel. I like how his heritage is actually explored in the novel, and contributes to the prophetical twist. There seems to be intention to create a romantic relationship between Grace and Eric, but I feel that the storyline flows better when they try to overcome an obstacle together. When it comes to the scenes that are supposed to melt your heart into romantic ooze, Eric fell just a little flat.

By Rachael on January 7, 2013
Format: Hardcover
After revealing the truth to the world about the bar code at the end of The Bar Code Rebellion, you thought that the bar code was over, that they won the battle with Global-1, didn't you? Well it isn't so easy in a world where most of the government is controlled by Global-1. The society thinks that all the genetic information is gone from the tattoo and only the originally told information remains. And unfortunately, the tattoo is still law.

Unlike the first two books in the trilogy, this book is told from the viewpoint of a new character. Grace is a receptionist at Global-1, and believes that the bar code has now been fixed. After returning home from receiving her tattoo, she finds her house completely deserted and is now wanted by the police and Global-1, for reasons that she doesn't even know. She joins up with the familiar characters from the first two books. Grace finds that the 'new' bar code isn't all it's cracked up to be, and is thrown in the middle of an ancient Indian prophecy predicting the end of the world.

This book was a lot more science fiction than the others. Lots of the science just doesn't hold up, and isn't believable at all.
Even so, I think that a lot of teens and even young adults would enjoy this book for what it is: a fast paced, short read full of excitement and action.

I originally bought this book series for my 12 year old son who's an avid reader like myself, but after he finished it he was telling me a little bit about it so I figured I'd read a couple chapters and see if it could hold my interest or not. Since I'm not a teenager I really didn't expect to like this book very much, but I was happily surprised to find that the characters are mature, likable, and that the story held my interest through all three books in this series!

I know this series has won all sorts of awards. The book itself just wasn't that great. It almost felt to me like the author just wanted to be done writing. Places that should have had so much more development were just glossed over. This is especially true of the ending. It left me wanting so much more. Not really a new book but more detail about what happened.

The reason the series got so many accolades is the subject matter. It is so relevant right now. Privacy and how much we should trust the government and big corporations is something I had never really cared about. Now I'm really thinking.
