    1. I think Weyn should have stopped with the Bar Code Rebellion. This book didn't make much sense and didn't tie any loose ends from the first one. Some of it was quite a stretch. Hopi prophecies that predict the Bar Code Tattoo disaster? Maybe the kids that read these books will make that leap, but I couldn't. I literally rolled my eyes. I didn't like that Grace so readily accepted Decode's explanation after fighting it so long. It didn't fit into her "don't buck the system" attitude. And the most [...]

    2. After the first two books I was kinda looking forward to this butese were my reactions on finishing.I think there was just too much squeezed into this and not nearly enough explanation. Like all those Hopi prophecies? Seriously. I really thought they should have at least gone deeper into that legend in the first book about "the natural course of evolution". But noooo. I've gotta say disappointing would be a bit of an understatement for something like this.The only thing I can't decide on is whet [...]

    3. Review:I received this ARC from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.I have to say, I was very pleasantly surprised by this book. Its pretty short, only about 200 pages, but a very exciting read. The story is of a 17 year old girl, who lives about 20 or so years in the future, where a huge company has designed bar codes for every person to have. The barcodes have all your personal information, your genes, your intelligence level, etc. But also, they inset little nanobots to track your wher [...]

    4. Apparently this is the 3rd installment in a series?? I had no idea when I picked it up at the library. I guess I could've looked it up on , but I saw no reason to until it was done.She could've fooled me. Her protagonist was brand new, behaving in a very "first-book" fashion. I actually really liked the worldbuilding (which is usually my biggest problem with books like these) -- she clearly knows something about the state of the world and technology. But her prose was mediocre, riddled with poor [...]

    5. Title: The Bar Code Prophecy (Bar Code Tattoo book 3)Author: Suzanne WeynGenre: Sci-Fi/AdventureSetting: United States, 2025Characters: Grace, Eric, Eutonah, Mfumbe, KatieMajor Themes: Dangers of technology, danger of misusing natural resourcesBrief Summary: Young Grace was just about to turn seventeen and get the bar code tattoo; a tattoo containing your bank information, identification, genetic code, and more. Despite the advice of a close friend Eric, Grace went ahead and got the tattoo. Afte [...]

    6. Not a favorite book of mine and I'll tell you why. The book was most definitely boring. It's about a girl who finds out she's adopted and suppose to be a part of a big prophecy. It was not exciting as I think it should be. I thinks she should turn herself in or do something besides sit around whining while someone else take care of the problem for her. So what if she is adopted? So what if she's the daughter of the inventor of the barcode?The book was not a good trilogy ending. I honestly don't [...]

    7. What a terrible conclusion to an already bad enough series. What a waste of my five-dollar bill. What a waste of paper and ink. What a waste of brain cells. :(

    8. Grace Morrow is almost seventeen. That means that soon, she will get the bar code tattoo; but it is completely safe now, no more nanobots, no more genetic codes, just personal information that banks, insurance companies, and other places need for identification. She works as a receptionist at one of the millions of Global-1 buildings in the world. She really likes climbing rock walls, especially since Eric Chaca works at the place. Eric was Olympic bound for his rock climbing skills. He also is [...]

    9. (This is a long one But It's broken up a little.)This book is rough there are some issues I can't turn a blind eye to. I still remember how I felt about the other two. I really liked The Bar Code Tattoo and the Bar Code Rebellion was weird but all right. I actually went into this book knowing it was going to different. But not this different. (More on a theory later.) I first want to comment on the cover. I can believe that the girl is Grace it make sense but that is not Eric. Technically the bo [...]

    10. I liked the first two and The Bar Code Prophecy is no different. Every book is an acquired taste but I happened to enjoy the stories. Even the idea that all of the strip mining could lead to an imbalance in the universe and cause a meteor to be rerouted our way. Sure the characters can be a little weak, often silly, and ignorant to boot but then can't we all seem that way at times? They could have been developed in more depth but then the authors target audience is young adults. Judging by my ow [...]

    11. This was the last book in this trilogy and I thought it was a nice ending to the trilogy. The Bar Code Prophecy had a lot of the same characters as the first two books, but you are introduced to a new character who the book is about. Over all I liked the book, but the ending is what I don't think anyone was expecting.

    12. Two stars is me trying to be nice . . . It's so cringe worthy for example the main character was surprised they were alive even though everyone had a parachute. Another time she was worried about a meteor even though the government was trying to kill her at that time. I guess the point is don't read it.

    13. Good ending to the series. The whole series makes you think about a lot of things that are going on in the world- maybe that's why I didn't greatly enjoy the series, I usually read to escape from reality.

    14. I thought the last book was the end should of known that it wasn't over until the bad guys were destroyed

    15. 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 com [...]

    16. This series had good potential, but this whole book was a total disappointment. New characters are vague and have no development. The only apparent way to defeat Global-1 was to write up a big flood that coincidently wiped out all of Global-1's centers and headquarters instead of giving Grace an actual "big boss" fight that she trained hard for. There are lots of loose ends and unanswered questions.

    17. The GoodThe "enemy" point of view. I love love loved the idea of telling the last installment in this trilogy from the point of view of a Global 1 (aka big brother) sympathizer. I hate it when books drum out the idea that everyone on the "other side" is evil, corrupt, and eats babies for lunch. Weyn very skillfully illustrates through her main character choice that sometimes people are just naive and don't know any better.The BadThe mineral deposit fiasco. So I know that dystopian books like thi [...]

    18. I'll start with what I didn't like about this book. The main characters were different from the first two books. I also didn't like how everything was so predictable. That was pretty much the only things I didn't like. I liked how it had a few of the original characters in it. I also liked how it takes place six months after the BCT got taken away since you can really see the impact it left. Now for the summary!!SPOILERS AHEAD!!!! The main character in this book is Grace. She loves to rock climb [...]

    19. I finally finished this series and now I can stop caring about it!I felt like the writing in this one was a lot slower than the other two books, which was great because the other ones just felt like brief scenes thrown together with no transition between them. That being said, there was some stuff that was brought up with almost explanation to it, like the Hopi people and stuff.There was some prophecy about the Bar Code tattoo and somehow it was linked to this place that was sacred to the Hopi p [...]

    20. I'm kind of split on this book. THE BAR CODE TATTOO, originally published 8 years ago (when I was just 20), was one of the few young adults novels I picked up before the upsurge in the market. At the time it had been years since I read any other then the fantasies of Tamora Pierce, but Suzanne Weyn wrote titles in a bunch of Publisher Series I enjoyed and the cover was striking. I really enjoyed it.Its sequel, THE BAR CODE REBELLION, published in 2006 didn't quite peak my interest as much, but I [...]

    21. The Bar Code Prophecy follows a seventeen year old girl named Grace. In her world, everyone has a bar code tattoo that they receive when they turn 17. It holds all of their information and allows them full access into their technologically advanced world. After Grace gets her own tattoo she learns that she is part of a prophecy to bring down the evil organization known as Global-1, who are the inventors of the tattoo. Overnight, her world is thrown into chaos and she faces challenges along the w [...]

    22. This is the third book of the series that began with "The Bar Code Tattoo" and continued with "The Bar Code Rebellion." The world has been taken over by corporations. When teens reach the age of 17 they are barcoded with their ID. This is marketed as making life much simpler, since the barcode can be used as ID. However, in the previous books the barcodes were actually part of an evil plot to control people's lives and with today's privacy concerns one can see how that would happen. In this book [...]

    23. 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 i [...]

    24. ugh. just. ugh. i liked the first two. then the third one? ugh. The first two follow a certain set of characters, then the third one has a brand new main female character. The characters that were in the first two, are secondary characters in this third one, which sucks, cause I got to know those characters, now I gotta see how they are doing from the sidelines. I hate books like that, if you start writing a trilogy, or series, in the viewpoint of one character, keep it in the friggin same viewp [...]

    25. Grace is a teen who works for Global 1. Her parents have always been great to her, but after she get the Tattoo Global 1 is out to find her.
