After reading Dmitry Glukhovsky s Metro 2033, I felt compelled to offer a review Frankly it is the best post apocalyptic sci fi I have ever read While some things may get lost in translation, and it has a lot of typos, for me it did not detract from Artyom s epic struggle to reach Polis from the subway station of VDNKh and deliver the message that the dark ones are invading the station and the future of the entire metro population is at risk.Set in the year 2033, it depicts mankind s struggle After reading Dmitry Glukhovsky s Metro 2033, I felt compelled to offer a review Frankly it is the best post apocalyptic sci fi I have ever read While some things may get lost in translation, and it has a lot of typos, for me it did not detract from Artyom s epic struggle to reach Polis from the subway station of VDNKh and deliver the message that the dark ones are invading the station and the future of the entire metro population is at risk.Set in the year 2033, it depicts mankind s struggle to survive in a Moscow subway system after nuclear bombs have destroyed the surface and contaminated the air, resulting in the birth of a multitude of mutant monsters, creating a life of constant fear and terror for the metro human pupulation There is a new species,adapted to the radiation filled atmosphere, intent on replacing mankind.The story operates on a number of different levels, is tightly plotted, very descriptive and real Lead protagonist Artyom is very believable as he analyzes the politics at work during his journey to try and save the future of mankind.Glukhovsky criticizes Communism, institutionalized religion, cult worship, man s inabilty to get along with his neighbours, the futility of capitalism and the hopelessness of war I m sure I m missing a few Inside the small states organized at different metro stations, the different control groups become a microcosm of our society, almost an allegory of how, as George Orwell put it, absolute power corrupts absolutely The ending is a twist and a shocker that left me feeling empty and hollow for a few days afterwards.This is a well written, poignant and riveting work destined to become a timeless piece of literature that will be studied, admired and critiqued for many years to come Surprisingly monotonous novel Reading it it becomes obvious that postapocalyptic setting, strange events and bizarre creatures are not enough for a good novel The structure is repetitive, there is no overall development of main character s psyche, except at the very end, too late, I m afraid Events are arbitrary, there are too many unnecessary descriptions of metro stations and reader looses himself in all the mentioned tunnels Women play no important role, there is none, except for some hys Surprisingly monotonous novel Reading it it becomes obvious that postapocalyptic setting, strange events and bizarre creatures are not enough for a good novel The structure is repetitive, there is no overall development of main character s psyche, except at the very end, too late, I m afraid Events are arbitrary, there are too many unnecessary descriptions of metro stations and reader looses himself in all the mentioned tunnels Women play no important role, there is none, except for some hysterical mother here and there Apparently in the future they can t carry weapons, fight, protect or be a community leader I take it for granted it is a SF novel, but still there are many inconsistencies which could be easily avoided with a careful editing @READ E-PUB ´ Metro 2033 õ Antiutopija Za 21 VekRoman Koji Ce Vam Od Krinuti Mogu A Vrata Budu NostiDa Li Je Jedina Nada Ovecanstva Ruski Metro 2033 Dragi Moskovljani I Gosti Prestonice Transportno Preduze E Moskovski Metropoliten Potpuno Je Nebezbedno, Ulazite Na Sopstvenu Odgovornost Onaj Kome Ne Nedostaje Hrabrosti I Strpljenja Da Se Ceo Ivot Osvr E U Mraku, Prvi E U Njemu Ugledati Zra Ak Svetlosti.Dve Hiljada Trideset Tre A Godina Ove Anstvo Je Gotovo U Potpunosti Uni Teno Moskva Je Pretvorena U Avetinjski Grad Kontaminiran Radijacijom I Nastanjen Udovistima Malobrojni Pre Iveli Ljudi Kriju Se U Moskovskom Metrou Najve Em Protivatomskom Skloni Tu Na Zemlji Njegove Stanice Pretvorene Su U Gradove Dr Ave, A U Tunelima Caruje Tama I Obitava U As.Artem, Stanovnik VDNP, Treba Da Se Probije Kroz Itav Metro Da Bi Spasao Stra Ne Opasnosti Svoju Stanicu, A Mo Da I Preostalo Ove Anstvo.Kultni Internet Roman Dmitrija Gluhovskog Ve Je Poznat Stotinama Hiljada Internet Italaca Objavljivanje Ove Knjige Izazvalo Je Odu Evljenje Nestrpljive Publike.Igrica Koja Prati Artemove Do Ivljaje U Moskovskom Metrou Je Postala Jedna Od Najpopularnijih Igrica U Svetu, A Film A Produkcije O Ekujemo Vec 2010 Godine.

This is a cult classic dystopia that managed to catapult high despite originally being given away for free a littlethan a decade ago It s a testament of word of mouth.I found myself curious even before having this recommended to me, but I m only now getting around to reading it For shame, right This is very much a Russian tale with everything that implies Post nuclear survival tale within the metro tunnels, humanity becoming Morlocks and strange flying creatures preventing any egress This is a cult classic dystopia that managed to catapult high despite originally being given away for free a littlethan a decade ago It s a testament of word of mouth.I found myself curious even before having this recommended to me, but I m only now getting around to reading it For shame, right This is very much a Russian tale with everything that implies Post nuclear survival tale within the metro tunnels, humanity becoming Morlocks and strange flying creatures preventing any egress Along with the heavy radiation, but who s really counting that The novel was very interesting in how the novel was nearly a traditional coming of age tale, butthan that, I nearly had to stop at a regular basis because of how episodic it seemed, too Maybe I should have I might have enjoyed it.As it was, we followed the main character from one part of the metro tunnel to another, discovering strange belief systems that happen to be pretty much everything that we moderns know now Christians, fascists, satanists, worm worshiping cannibals and of course capitalists were discovered with fresh, unpolluted eyes The novel had a lot to say It was very ideal and idealism oriented Maybe it was just the utter feel of being disillusioned by all the lies that we humans keep telling ourselves, and maybe it was that old Russian pragmatism at work, but I thought this was both the novel s main strength and main weakness.Maybe I wasn t in the mood for it And maybe I ve already had my fill of such classic translated Russian novels Either way, I appreciated this novel while not entirely getting into it.That s not to say it wasn t full of great parts It refers to and pays homage to Roadside Picnic, Stalkers and all The ending made up for almost all the slow parts that felt like kind of a slog All told, I d recommend this for fans of extremely well developed post apocalypse literature with a huge serving of what classic Russian literature is known for shovels and ideas Are you tired of stupid Young Adult books with stupid protagonists who are worried about who they should kiss rather than how to survive Then this is for you.Real survival, real struggle, and a very elaborated setting take Metro 2033 to new levels of things went wrong here.This book won t try to babysit you, so don t expect an easy read.

the setting, the main character, Artyom, is sent on a quest by someone he just met, for reasons which are not elaborated upon, to the ultimate purpose of doingsomething That s a great way to start a journey, isn t it For the rest of the book, Artyom simply wanders around the metro system tunnels and stations, trying to get to his goal Every now and then, he goes on rambling, nearly incoherent philosophical rants about the nature of humanity presented with incredibly juvenile thinking, as though it were written by a moody high schooler He meets people, then they leave after a few pages And there doesn t seem to be any overall plot that ties it together, other than his loosely defined quest To quote the book,it just went on and on This, as a finished novel, reads like a rough draft He rambles on for ages about Artyom s travels through the metro, yet the motivation for his doing so seems sketchy, at best, until the last 10 pages Characters are barely developed, and are then tossed aside, as soon as they have any personality Locations have only minimal descriptions, likely assuming that you re already familiar with what the Russian subway system looks like I shouldn t have to look things up on Google Images to understand what an author is talking about None of it manages to come together and form a cohesive world It s a large jumble of fragmented good ideas and it seems the author had to include every single one of his good ideas, without thinking about whether or not they were appropriate or useful to the narrative I also have a tough time buying into the idea of everything on the surface mutating into super monsters within a single generation after nuclear war This may be fantasy, but COME ONAt least give us a believable timeline.I could have probably given this 2 stars, expect for the fact that all of the good ideas the book presents are utterly wasted I ve mentioned a few times how it quickly wraps up in about 10 pages, and that s the problem the ideas in those 10 pages should have been everywhere else in the novel You can t have a compelling conclusion when there is no build up to it Simply stating, This is what it was all about, is the worst kind of lazy writing I was appalled at how wasteful this book was of its ideas, characters, setting and, most importantly, my time.All this is without even mentioning the massive amount of typos, grammatical errors, wrong names, and general sloppiness of the English translation Perhaps I should have played the video game version, instead At least then I would have been able to kill things, which is what I wanted to do upon finishing this novel I really wanted to like this book Everything about it promised so much The setting is the Moscow metro system in the year 2033 Above ground, it appears that humanity has been wiped out by nuclear war The survivors live entirely in the underground tunnel system stations have evolved into microcosms of the old social and political systems of

about it promised so much The setting is the Moscow metro system in the year 2033 Above ground, it appears that humanity has been wiped out by nuclear war The survivors live entirely in the underground tunnel system stations have evolved into microcosms of the old social and political systems of Russia The inhabitants are now into the second generation, and Glukhovsky touches on some of the adaptive changes humans have undergone as a result of living in a lightless world, believing themselves the last representatives of humanity Strange mutations have resulted from the nuclear devastation, and frightening creatures are taking over the world above some of them threaten life in the tunnel systems The premise is simply fascinating, and begs forattention by the author But one of the main flaws of the book as I see it is that Glukhovsky simply does not pay enough attention to building a cohesive, believable world, and the promise in the premise is not fulfilled Glukhovsky s primary concern is with relating the adventures of his hero Artyom, a young man drawn ostensibly by chance into a strange quest to save the metro system The structure of the quest is aimless and ultimately lacks satisfcatory closure I struggled to remain engaged with Artyom and indeed the fate of the metro system About a quarter of the way through I simply stopped caring about what would happen to any of them The novel rushes to a close in the last ten pages after a build up of nearly 450 pages and these last few pages throw the whole book into a new light suddenly, I saw how the novel could have been a rich critique of modern humanity, an exploration of the madness and futility of war, and the destructiveness of anthropocentrism I am so disappointed it failed A factor that served only to exacerbate any issues I had with plot and character development was exacerbated by what is almost certainly a poor translation I am giving Glukhovsky himself the benefit of the doubt, as I cannot read Russian and verify the quality of the original , and some awful copy editing The only good news is that this novel has been adapted into a PC game and I think the story material is eminently suited to it I actually bought the game, and I am looking forward to exploring it 2033 Metro 2033, Dmitry GlukhovskyMetro 2033 is a post apocalyptic science fiction novel by Russian author

underground metro stations in search of refuge Eventually, the communities settled in the underground train stations developed into independent states Soon, factions emerged, ranging from the independent peacekeepers the Rangers of the Order , to the communist Red Line faction and the fascist Fourth Reich , to thepowerful factions such as Polis , which contained the greatest military power and the most knowledge of the past, and the Hanza regime, which controlled the main ring of metro stations by its sheer economic power As these groups began to evolve, the Red Line and the Fourth Reich quickly entered a state of war, as both sought to destroy the other As the war raged, the stations who refused to join either side were either demolished by the factions, merged into the Hanza regime, raided by criminal bandits, or formed their own independent states Other stations were outright destroyed by animals, mutated by the nuclear fallout While most of the stations were controlled by the 3 main factions, some stations formed an independent alliances, including the station VDNKh Exhibition Within that station, the events of Metro 2033 unfold The protagonist of the novel is a 20 year old man named Artyom who was born before the nuclear holocaust He was saved from a horde of carnivorous rats that killed his mother and the inhabitants of his station as a baby by Sukhoi, a

neighbouring station, Botanical Gardens They were unable to seal the exit after their visit and the Dark Ones have been using this entrance to the metro ever since Hunter tells Artyom that he intends to gather intel on the Dark Ones, and in the event that he doesn t return Artyom must carry a message to a man named Melnik at Polis with news of the threat Feeling a sense of responsibility for the Dark Ones attacks and seeking adventure, Artyom accepts 2015 2033 1393 704 9786001821233 21 2013
