The Barcode Tattoo By: Suzanne Weyn. Shelby Warburton. Grew up in Long Island, New York. Currently lives in upper New York with her.
Her "thinking things out" got a bit monotonous, especially when it became pretty clear what was While I liked the first book because it gave us a glimpse into the making of a dystopian society, I felt this second book fell a bit flat. Her "thinking things out" got a bit monotonous, especially when it became pretty clear what was going on but she couldn't seem to get it.
Which brings me to the second thing that bothered me: it was very obvious that there was a nanotechnology thing going on, and the clone thing trying not to spoil , way before the characters figured it out.
I mean, come on! I thought Kayla was supposed to have some sort of psychic ability here! And then the ending was pretty quick and easy. All of the sudden, they just happen to come upon the perfect solution. It was pretty easy to take down an evil, global superpower.
As the story opens, Kayla is in a meeting with her guidance counselor who has just informed her that she will not be receiving a scholarship to an art school as she'd hoped. Kayla is upset with the news but the disappointment is overshadowed by the fact that her family situation has become unstable ever since her parents accepted the bar code tattoos.
Kayla encounters a group of students who are discussing their resistance to the bar code and becomes interested in their ideas. Over the coming weeks, she spends more time with the students and comes to have an active part in their group. The group makes plans to meet in the Adirondack Mountains if they are forced to leave their homes. Kayla arrives home one afternoon to find an ambulance at her house.
Her father has committed suicide and Kayla thinks back to the depression that has been evident in him since soon after he got the tattoo.
Kayla's mother, Ashley, begins falling apart as well. It's not a problem if you have nothing to hide?
But normal people's lives are being destroyed by this tattoo, while others are getting promoted. Kayla is against the tattoo and knows that it's dangerous, but when her society is getting closer to it being mandatory, can she keep her promise to herself?
And what is in those bar codes?
This book is your typical dystopian. Government tries to be utopia, everyone goes along with it, except for MC, and MC joins rebellion.
This isn't bad, but I've seen it all before though, this book was published before the dystopian craze, so I can't really blame the book. I still liked the idea behind this book. I thought the tattoos were interesting and you really see a sheep-like effect in the population with the introduction to the tattoo, then they ignore any bad rep.
It was also interesting seeing how fast and far things escalated. It's sad to say that this is how people would probably react, but it's true. I would also like to mention that there was a surprising kind-of paranormal-ish element to the book.
It made it a bit different.
