Publisher's Summary

World War Three wiped out the humankind. The planet is empty now. Huge cities became dust and ashes. Railroads are being eaten by rust. Abandoned satellites hang lonely in their orbits. Radio is mute on all frequencies. The only survivors of the last war were those who made it into the gates of the Metro, the subway system of Moscow city.
It's there, hundreds of feet below the ground, in the vaults of what was constructed as the world's largest air-raid shelter, where now people try to outlive the end of days. It's there that they created a new world for themselves. The stations of the Metro became city-states, and its citizens, torn apart by religions and ideologies, are fighting for now-scarce commodities: air, water, and space.
This tiny underground world can only remind humans of an immense world they once were the masters of. It's been 20 years since Doomsday, and yet the survivors refuse to give up. The most stubborn of them keep cherishing a dream: when the radiation level from nuclear bombings subsides, they will be able to return to the surface and have the life their parents once had. But the most stubborn of the stubborn continues to search for other survivors in this huge emptiness that once was called Earth. His name is Artyom. He would give anything to lead his own people from the underground onto the surface.
And he will.

I was so excited, I pre-ordered the book... oops..

Is there anything you would change about this book?

This book was unlike the rest of the books in his story... You can always tell when a writer is out of material because they fill space with cursing and sex. The "f-bombs" were over the top and at one point as a character drops the skirt of a woman to finger her in front of her husband, I just had enough. In one chapter the author drops the dialogue tags (ie "said Sally" "responded Joe") The narrator tried to change voices as best he could, but it was terrible. If that was what the first 2 books had been like, that would be expected, but this was so unlike the author that it was sad.


Has Metro 2035 turned you off from other books in this genre?

No, I liked the first two books.


Which character – as performed by Rupert Degas – was your favorite?

Even though the story line is pitiful, Rupert Degas does a great job in the performance

A deparure from the original

New directions are fun. And sometimes necessary. There will be some that would argue that this change was a necessary change. But i would argue that this book was not.
