    1. Overall, this book started out pretty good Futuristic dystopia, great idea But Underdeveloped It was a good easy read that fit together well, if a bit shakily, up until Kayla escapes from the hospital From there, it seems like either the author was working hard and fast to meet a deadline or doing everything in her power to make it under a certain number of pages, because every scene is speedy, too quick to really process It is like you as a reader are being shoved into this completely new envir [...]

    4. There are multiple problems with this book, first being the overall flow of the story there wasn t one Usually you ll have a build up to a climax but this book is lacking that, rather it has many small disappointing peaks Just when you think the main character is going to have to fend for herself and show her inner strength someone appears to rescue her The big let down in that is that friends from the beginning of the book reappear at just the right time which took away any shred of realism har [...]

The United States government has been taken over by Global 1 they basically own everything imaginable technology, medicine, food, politicians Global 1 is trying to enact a law that requires everyone over the age of 17 to get a bar code tattoo The tattoo is supposed to make everything easier, because it keeps all of the information about a person in one place I.D bank account, credit, medical history, everything Lots of people love the tattoo, because it makes transactions so easy and fast, but t [...]

    8. Not good in content, style, or dialogue This was a good concept that fell disappointingly flat It seemed really current in it s idea With the current scandals of government wiretapping the media and IRS intimidation of political groups, along with the current debate over Common Core and the implementation of Obamacare, I expected this story to feel realistic and fresh Unfortunately this book was written 10 years ago, and it shows It is painfully outdated.The writing was very choppy It felt lik [...]

    9. just no I can not deal with this book, there are way too many problems with it I really really liked the basic idea of the book a barcode tattoo which has a lot of different information about you like identification, driving license, bank account etc However, the writing style was simply horrible The characters in the story have no real character development The author seems to just put one event after the other with no logical thinking Whenever the situation gets difficult or dangerous, oh mira [...]

    10. I m only about 70 pages in and it seems to be a book for YA Ad Lit readers teachers if they are looking for utopia dystopia readings Essentially, the future about 2020 2025 has each person tatooed with a bar code Some believe, if you re not doing anything wrong, why worry about it where others realize the danger of information that could be created and passed on within that bar code An interesting read in the age of the Patriot Act and for readers who are or will one day be familiar with Orwell [...]

    12. Een verrassend fijn boek over een verplichte tatoeage die heel de samenleving overhoop gooit De toffe thematiek doet denken aan de wat als scenario s uit Black Mirror en stelt de kracht van technologie aan de kaak Het einde van het boek vond ik echter wat vaag en ik weet niet zeker of ik de reeks verder zal lezen maar het was een heerlijk boek voor tussendoor.Lees mijn complete recensie op Oog op de Toekomst.

    13. I had some decent expectations for this book and ended up being disappointed It was no where near as good as I thought it would be, not to mention I am not particularly fond of the author s writing It s a YA novel but to be honest I feel like it was written by a teenager The language wasn t rich nor interesting, it made the story flat The only perk to the book would be the plot, the idea of a society where every 17 year old needed to get a bar code tattoo containing everything about themselves s [...]

    14. This book wasn t finished I d say it was the second draft, just barely one step up from an I have this idea let s get it on paper really quick draft and it needed three of four to really flesh it out The Bar Code Tattoo was super underdeveloped with simplistic writing, which was a shame because the concept was one of the most possible and realistic dystopian futures I ve read Government tracking, peer pressure, lack of privacy, etc not too far off from a smartphone, am I right I wonder when com [...]

    15. this book was on what will happen if everyone in the world was only identified by a code In the book, getting a bar code was a cool thing and you get it when you turn a certain age 16 18 but the government was corrupt and was killing everyone that was did not have the perfect DNA and anyone with a history of cancer would be killed and the bar code tracked the movements of everyone I thought this was wrong and so did the protaganist of the book she decided to run away from her communtiy i think i [...]

Adrienne texted me the other day Omg just read the worst YA series you gotta read it, the bar code tattoo trilogy, it takes like 3 hours for all 3 and it s a mess and I want to talk to you about it lol I admit I was skeptical, but this book delivered in Hot Mess It s got two stars because it s one of those so bad I need to see where this goes First of all, it s a book inspired by an end times pamphlet I meanally But okay, whatever, a good writer can work with that to a certain extent This one, h [...]

    17. I haven t read this book for a long time, perhaps even five years, but it has stuck with me for all of that time, since I first read this as a young teen.The possibilities that this book describes are terrifying.

    18. A next century future novel, where a bar code tattoo is being pushed for every member of society Why resist when it makes every financial transaction and instance in which ID is required easier Except some lives are being ruined once people get their tattoo.

    20. 1 The Barcode Tattoo was one of those books in my library that was constantly irritating me Every time I walked in and started scouring the shelves, there it was sometimes there would even be two copies The cover combined with it s name put me off reading it yes, i know you shouldn t judge a book by it s cover so sue me and I managed to ignore it for half a year One day, I reached out to pick another novel off the rack when The Barcode Tattoo jumped out at me Well, not literally but you get the [...]

    22. This book is a great illustration of how quickly things can change when you are writing of the future While the novel was created in 2004, not long ago by any means, it already reads as out of date, due to the author having dictated changes that began taking place in 2006, and continued with major events in 2010 and 2011 Unfortunately for me, that kind of thing breaks my ability to suspend disbelief while reading.The plot, though, was compelling enough to keep me going.I would not be surprised i [...]

    24. To me, this novel was anything but original Hey, what would happen if the government forced us to all get tattoos that recorded all the information about us on our own skins See what I mean This type of novel has been done tons before Kayla lives in a world where all seventeen year olds have to receive a bar code tattoo on their wrists Of course, the huge conglomerate that owns everything in America including the government has included genetic information on the tattoo Some people receive promo [...]

    25. This was a very interesting story I imagined it as if it were taking place in a parallel universe, because even though the author mentions that it is taking place in the future,it is the close future with so drastic changes to the society that we know today, that it seems impossible In general the book ins about a girl living in a world where one organization is ruling the word, forcing people o get bar code tattoos on their 17th birthdays They say that the tattoos make life easier All informati [...]

    27. Honestly this book really disappointed me I really feel that the author could have done so much with this story than she did Although the aspect that disappointed me the most is the love story that Weyn cooked up In my opinion it had no substance and didn t really draw me in at all, there wasn t really any buildup to the I love you If that makes sense Overall I m just kind of sad Weyn didn t do with what could have been an excellent story.

    30. Overrall, The Barcode Tattoo was an interesting book to read if you are interested in Dystopia Science Fiction However, I must admit that after a while the book started to get somewhat boring This is because a good amount of characters in the book are very predictable Also, not much creativity used in the authors writing style The book would be fascinating if there were plot twists throughout the story.
