Kristy Sartain- Whispering Pretty Stories Reviews
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

After the first two books I was kinda looking forward to this but...

...these 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 o

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

I liked this book, but at the same time I didn't. I think this book was a tiny bit better then the last two, simply because Kayla was no longer the main character. Oh, how I loath Kayla. Grace was a good character, maybe not fleshed out enough, but better then Kayla, that's for sure. Eric was also a better character then Zeke, and Mfumbe put together (was there a reason that Zeke and Nedra were never featured in this book? I mean, come on! Zeke was in love with Kayla, and Nedra was a spokesperso ...more

Very interesting book that talks about the end of the world. Similar to Weyn's other two books in the series, the ending is very rushed and feels forced. I miss the beautiful details we got in the beginning of the book. A quick paced adventurous book for some light reading.

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 Goodreads, 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

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

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. :(

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 ...more

I chose to read THE BAR CODE PROPHECY by Suzanne Weyn. This book mostly takes place at the school and the Multinational Corporation Global-1. The main character is Grace, a sixteen year old girl that has a crush on another character Eric. Other characters in the book are her adoptive family and her biological father.
The year is 2025 and Grace is prepared to get a bar code tattoo on her seventeenth birthday. After she gets her tattoo, she finds out her adoptive family is missing, so she goes to

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 ...more

This book seemed rushed and just didn't jive as well with the other two books in the series. This book focused more on the Native American Prophecy (thus the title). Grace, who is the half sister to Kayla (the main character in the last two books) and Eric (the son of Eutonah) are proclaimed the people described in the prophecy. They must find the stone prochpecy which is hidden in a cave. Along with all this, the Global-1 story that was the focal point in the last two books continues to unravel ...more

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.

Since this is a trilogy, I was surprised when the second book wrapped things up. It was interesting to see the author take a look into what happens next. The seeming happy ending of book 2 is shaken up with political intrigue. However, the new characters did not capture me and the plot was weak at points. Most importantly, I did not feel the prophecy was adequately explained.

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.

I rated this book 4 stars because the beginning was interesting. I think the part that disappointed me was that it was a different character and not the one in the previous 2 books. It was a good book overall though.

Didn't want to out it down. Kept you in the edge of your seat. I've read all 3books and love them.

Well this felt like the author just couldn't figure out a way to end the story so she just decided to reset everything. Not bad but definitely not awesome either
