The Bar Code Tattoo by Suzanne Weyn Part Two

3 Feb

This week, I finished The Bar Code Tattoo by Suzanne Weyn.  Kayla manages to escape from her town and get to the Adirondack Mountains with Mfumbe, another bar code resister.  The two of them work on heightening their psychic powers there with a woman named Eutonah.  All is well until Global-1 workers show up.  Kayla and Mfumbe get away, but they decide that it’s time to stop hiding and join other bar code tattoo protesters.

This book makes me wonder about what shape our world is really in.  In this book, The United States Postal Service goes out of business in 2015, three years from now.  The bar code tattoo (the tattoo, not the book) was first developed in 2024, twelve years from now.  After reading this book this book, I started to wonder if some of this was really going to happen.  Nowadays, most people communicate by phone calls, email and texting.  How long will it be until The United States Postal Service really goes out of business?  I hope our world doesn’t become so controlling that everyone has to get the bar code tattoo, but who knows… Definitely a √+.
