Book: Bar Code Tattoo
Author: Suzanne Weyn
Recommend: Most of the book was great…
A society where almost everyone has a bar code tattoo. However, they don’t always work right. For some people getting the bar code means success for others it means ruin. For Kayla it means making a choice to conform. After her father and mother’s lives are ruined by the tattoos, Kayla’s decision not to get the tattoo seemed easy at the time, until the moment it became illegal not to have one. What will Kayla do when the whole world seems to be chasing those who aren’t tattooed? How will she handle it when the one person she trusts betrays her?
This story was fast, furious and fun to read. This book’s obvious roots in the Biblical book of Revelation is obvious from the beginning, however the fact that it doesn’t follow through on the path is extremely confusing. There are also large jumps in time between paragraphs on occasion, like the author just gave up for a while and picked the story back up days, weeks, or even months later. The weirdest part of the whole thing was the physic ending that was just bizarre. Not at all where I expected the story to go.
This story has a great idea that really needed a bit more work.
