I just finished the Microchip novel and I must say it is indeed an up to the minute, well timed book. It contains many issues that have a direct bearing on the concerns of many people both worldwide and some that I know personally. My own social circle is abounding with knowledgeable people highl......more

I wish I could give this book ten stars! Chey Barnes takes facts that are unknown to most of the U.S. Citizens, some that sound crazy, but are completely true, and she weaves them into a story that keeps you turning page after page (and running to google the interesting info).

Microchip by Chey Barnes is a good book if you like lots of involved dialog that progresses the story along as it is done very well. I can only imagine the amount of research that went into writing this book as it is deep in understanding of the banking industry, the IT realm and combine that wit......more

I was given this copy free in order to review it, it in no way guarantees that I will review it positively. *Some adult language, non-typical of a Christian novel.

I loved it!!! Suitably dark by its nature but Microchip never takes itself too seriously and throughout the novel there is an air of comedy about it that makes it more enjoyable. I loved that feeling the author imparts and it makes reading the book a breeze. When you tie in the fast pace with the......more

Its hard to write a bad review on a free advanced copy and I'm glad I do not have to. This is a wonderful, well written, fun, educational sci-fi novel. It took me a long time to read it but only because of personal issues so I haven't got around to it. Last week I took it with me on vacation and... ...more

If you enjoy any George Orwell novels then read Chey Barne's Microchip: The Agenda Is Now. And if you haven't read George Orwell then read Animal Farm and 1984, simple as that.

Gave this book to my dad before his early retirement and he said now he has something to look forward to! I liked it myself. It can get a little confusing at times but that's probably because I grew up believing everything I was told... sometimes it's not always the truth and Microchip shines som......more

this is one is for the conspiracy lover in you, but is also just a good read to give to a sci-fi lover as a gift. I read this book while camping last weekend... it took me about 4 days to read the whole thing so it is a great page turner with very real plot that can happen to our society any day... ...more

As you can imagine once we start to create bio technology, implant chips, organic barcode systems, etc... The world and the human race will be doomed and most likely the people will start a violent revolution. Many people object to this concept and they'd rather fight instead of live life like wh......more
Interesting characters and rising tension blend disturbing reports of economic manipulation and mind control.
– Publishers Weekly -
Microchip is the must-read novel of this decade!
– Tammy Kling, bestselling author, The Compass -
MICROCHIP is a book that will have both rave reviewers and naysayers. I found new information within the storyline, including that of the belief in trans-humanism and additional information about GMO food. Barnes information is presented very thoroughly and she ties her theories together quite nicely.

The world is changing, and ever so quickly. It used to be that everyone used paper money, and you got paid with a paper paycheck. Now it is credit and debit cards and your payroll is directly deposited. What is next? Microchip envisions a future that could easily be only years down the road where now everything is done with a microchip in the hand. For the most part, the world goes along with the idea and complies without really thinking, but this story follows a few different types of people who question this process for different reasons. As each of these people search for a way to escape the law of micro-chipping, they find themselves in the same place in Utah. Chey Barnes takes each person and their reasons, explaining them and giving them a place, and then you see what happens when they are all together. This is a science fiction story that hits just a little close to home.
Microchip might be science fiction today, but there are real life facts and information included in the book, and indexed in the back, that will leave you thinking hard about what you read. It's not a warning book, but a story of how different people are dealing with the law and what happens to them; there is a real human element in there. It is also very thought provoking and would be an excellent book for a book club or discussion group. Chey Barnes takes information and technology of today and advances it by only a few years to give us this story. Although there is family and a little romance in the story, there is more a cautionary spirit that we need to be more careful and thoughtful, not just accepting everything that is handed to us. I think this should be a required reading just as George Orwell's 1984 used to be when I was in high school. This is a newer version of Big Brother.

I received an ARC ebook from the author in exchange for an honest review.
There's the world you think you know...then there's the world behind it. In "Microchip", author Chey Barnes weaves an intelligent tale of a not-too-distant future, where humanity stands on a precipice. With extensive research, Barnes brings truths to the average citizen in the form of a fictional debut.
"Microchip" starts out introducing each character in a new chapter, which threw me at first. In hindsight, it makes sense to show where each character came from before weaving their stories together. There are soccer moms, biker dudes, Christians, and spirit-walkers. We also meet scientists, politicians, and the ruling elite. What happens when martial law runs rampant, and it's either receive a microchip or die? Will there be a safe haven left to run to, and if so - how will they survive cut off from the world?
Character development is not the focus of this type of story, so I didn't focus on that point. The main purpose of this story is to introduce a plausible future based on findings from many brilliant minds of today. Inquiring minds will appreciate the time Barnes took to fully explain what went wrong and the road back to redemption. Although not familiar with the science, it is all entirely plausible; never too much of a stretch.
I will certainly look for the sequel if one is in the making! Happy reading.
