I am really dissapointed. I loved Metro 2033 and I expected Metro 2034 to be equally good or even better - well, I shouldn't have had such a positive attitude. The only thing that stayed as interesting as in the first book is the postapocalyptic universum of people living in the Moscow metro but still, Metro 2033 showed us more of the metro and, in my opinion, did it way better. In Metro 2034, characters (maybe with exception for Leonid who wasn't my type, but still a really interesting person) ...more

Metro 2034 is a sort of sequel to the brilliant Metro 2033. I say 'sort of' as it doesn't really follow on from the events of the first book in the series. Obviously, we're still set in the Metro of Moscow, where humanity is on the brink of extinction living in a post-apocalyptic world. The Metro has survived and adapted 20 years after the first nuclear weapon was fired. Instead of one big underground system, we're introduced to a type of Greek polis city system, wit

What a disappointment!

OK, it’s not bad, exactly, but it’s poor compared to Metro 2033 - guess I had very high expectations. My main problem here is the lead characters: for the life of me I could not engage in either of them! I miss the first person singular perspective that Artiom provided us with in the first book, and would have expected that Hunter would fill that place here. Instead we only ever observe him from other people’s perspective, where he is alternatively some kind of a super her

Докато в предишната книга - "Метро 2033" имахме сюжет, който с напрежение ни водеше към някаква цел, то тук тя(целта) се губеше някъде в гънките на сатиричния мозък на един от главните герои.
Прекалено преекспонирана темата, че човекът е този, който е виновен за изпадналата в беда цивилизация, не помагаше с нищо на читателя - да му стане интересно, интригуващо и по някакъв начин будещо размишления. Това се случи вече в предната книга.

Тук имахме остатъчно присъствие на няколко от главните герои о
Of course I did not expect this to be as good as 2033 because the bar was set really high. However, it was still very entertaining and interesting to learn more about a different place of the Metro world, especially with the mysterious Hunter as one of the main characters.

Den första boken, Metro 2033, var en fantastisk läsupplevelse, vilket gjorde att jag hade höga förväntningar när jag började läsa den här. Redan efter några sidor var jag tillbaka igen i det postapokalyptiska Moskvas gastkramande tunnelbanesystem. Författaren har ett bra, effektivt språk som gör att jag som läsare har lätt att måla upp inre bilder av miljöerna. Det är en väldigt övertygande miljö som målas upp. Även skildringen av de samhällen som byggts upp i underjorden är trovärdiga. Skrämman ...more
I enjoyed the atmosphere and worldbuilding of Metro 2033, so I picked this up, hoping for more of the world and maybe a bit more action.

I was thoroughly disappointed, because this book decided to go different direction altogether: both action and more of the fun worldbuilding is replaced with overabundance of pseudo-philosophical and moral questions, which are both very simplistic, yet presented as a great moral quandary, and are used in dialogues, completely killing the pacing and flow of them.

Totally loved it!
Though this is a second book of the 2 books already out, I started my reading from this one (I just didn't know there is another one out).
The story is quite interesting, though the only thing it has in common with the first book is that - yes, there was the World War III (nuclear one, where nobody realized what had happend until the rockets actually hit) and yes 20 years later there are people still living in the Moscow subway system (Moscow subway system was actually built as b
Err, I'm a bit disappointed. I wanted this book to be as exciting and interesting, but it wasn't. The ending was confusing and crumpled. I didn't really like Sasha. I maybe liked Leonid a little bit. Hunter was rather interesting, but too grumpy and also very, very confusing.

But! I must say that the pacing of the book was fast and the author's writing style is rather poetic and beautiful.

I don't know, I don't regret reading this book, but I didn't enjoy it that much. Meh. Don't even wanna

Продължението на Метро 2033 е...ами, хъм - продължение. Глуховски се е опитал да продължи и доизясни част от историите развиващи се в първата книга, ала за жалост си личи много че е писано насила - за да се задоволи желанието на читателите, или пък за да си допълни банковата сметка.
В крайна сметка, книгата не е ужасна (след онова, шведското...нещо, моят критерий за ужасна книга наистина се промени) но определено не бих я препоръчал на никого.
Четете само от "Читанка" или ако ви я подарят - иначе

Никой не може да постигне пълната мизерия на постапокалиптичната пустош както прави това Глуховски. Това не може да му се отрече. И важи и за тази книга. Продължението на "Метро 2033" обаче наистина се различава в други насоки...
Целият текст- тук .
Не беше нищо особено в сравнение с първата книга. Беше си изсмукано от пръстите продължение. Нищо от случилото е в края на първа част не стана ясно какво, защо и как! Героите бяха други, съвсем отделна различна история, без която със сигурност можехме да минем. Възлагам по-големи надежди на 2035!

Gluchovskijs dystra framtidsskildring är ett fenomen som fått stor uppmärksamhet de senaste åren. Han har skrivit två böcker som översatts till svenska, ett FPS med RPG-inslag har lanserats och ett andra är under utveckling och sist jag kollade relaterade nyheter så förhandlar författaren med några viktiga filmbolag om rättigheterna till filmatiseringen. Låt oss stilla hoppas att projektet inte landar i Uwe Bolls knän.

Die Dystopie in der Metro nur 18 Jahre in der Zukunft ist erschreckend. Teil 1 konnte mich wirklich begeistern, bei diesem Mittelteil, Teil 2, nimmt die Spannung spürbar ab, die Story dümpelt so vor sich hin, lässt den Leser/Hörer aber teilweise mit tiefergehenden philosophischen Betrachtungen sinnierend zurück, und erst am Ende gibt es einen kleinen Cliffhanger, der Lust auf den dritten Teil macht. - Oliver Brod hat hervorragend gelesen!

Důstojný druhý díl serie. A zároveň netrpí neduhy většiny sequelů:Je to o 170 stránek kratší než první díl. Jestliže předešlá část prošla velkou část postapokaliptického metra, tentokrát se příběh odehrává jen v několika málo stanicích. I postav je celkové méně. Že méně je více, zde funguje dobře.

Na druhou stranu, čeho také ubylo a je to ke škodě, je ono tajemno-mystično-až-nadpřirozeno, jež hodně zahusťovalo atmosféru prvního dílu. Strach z procházení tunely mezi stanicemi je tak dost mechanick
I was thinking this would be a sequel to Metro 2033 and while there are few mentions of the events that occurred in the previous book, this can be read as a stand-alone too. I can't help but compare the two books. I think I might have said Metro 2033 felt like a collection of short stories with all the stations and characters. This on the other hand feels more like a proper book, but the story isn't as compelling. Yes, there is a threat to the station, yes, there are characters looking for a way ...more

Be warned it is not your usual metro this kinda changes it's style on more philosophical and reflective sphere. People who complain abaut it do not understand that metro it is not a line who goes from point A to B in a verry predectible line.
Metro is a romance that althrought it is a apocaliptycal so a phictional one it tries to reflect some life aspects with all it's blurs.

Metro 2033 byla originální, napínavá a uspokojující kniha. Nepřímé pokračování Metro 2034 není nic z toho. Kromě původního prostředí nevnímám prakticky žádnou podobnost. Zatímco v prvním dílu se postavy chovaly víceméně přirozeně a tvořily příběh, ve druhém díle jsou postavy podivné, chovají se divně, obvyklým dějovým zvratem je typ deus ex machina a konec je koncem textu, nikoli nějakého uceleného příběhu. Děj je proložen jakýmisi filosoficko-existenciálními úvahami na téma smrtelnost, konečnos ...more

It was an unexpected improvement upon Metro 2033: I didn't like Metro 2033 as much as the hype made me think I would, and therefore hesitated quite a bit on reading the follow up, Metro 2034.

Yet I'm glad I did, very glad.

It takes a bit of time to get used to the way the three stories are told at the same time, but once they start overlapping it's a real treat for lack of better words.

That what I missed in Metro 2033, the depth and emotional involved and way of describing it, certainly made up to

Initialy wanted to give this book 4 stars, but I had a few problems with it. It was an amazing and confusing journey thro the metro, there is so much to be explored still, yet we had to deal with a few side passages...

Metro 2034 takes us along the journey with Homer and Hunter on their way to a mission to Tula station, where bad shit is going down. Homer is writing a story on Hunter's deeds and throughout the novel we get to read about Homer's reasoning on how he should write his last book.

Siinä kun edellinen osa käsittelee ydinsodan jälkeistä yhteiskuntaa, tämä keskittyy enemmän ihmisiin ja rooleihin, joihin he tässä tilkkutäkkiyhteiskunnassa päätyvät, ja sitä kautta ihmisyyteen itseensä. Tämän seurauksena kirjailijan ote on enemmän pohdiskeleva kuin toiminnallinen.

The Metro essence is there yet it doesn’t really feel like it, some parts looked more like fan fiction or fan service, but it’s still an enjoyable book; of course it’s hard to compare it with 2033, when my the expectations were so different from this, even so I could appreciate this book.

Wer auf eine Fortsetzung von Artjoms Lebensgeschichte hofft, wird leider enttäuscht. Glukhovsky bringt neue Charaktere ins Spiel und eine neue Bedrohung in Form einer Krankheit. Auf der einen Seite steht Hunter, der alle Infizierten ausrotten will, weil er das für die einzige Lösung hält; und auf der anderen Seite Homer und Sascha, die Hunter vor seiner dunklen Seite retten wollen und gleichzeitig auch die Kranken.

Schlußendlich wird die Metro aus völlig unerwarteter Richtung vor der Verbreitung

Although I was disappointed that this book did not take up the story of Artyom once again, I absolutely love the setting, the grittiness, the determination, and the supernatural that is found within the Metro universe. I also thought the translation of this book was significantly better than that of Metro 2033, but it could simply be that Glukhovsky's prose has improved.

“What remains of the dead? What remains of every one of us?

Tombstones sink in, moss covers them, and after a few centuries the name can no longer be read. Every forgotten grave is designated a new corpse.

As the generations passed, remembrance of the dead diminished until it was forgotten. What was called everlasting peace only lasted half a century. The bones were disturbed as the graveyards were mulched in to suburbs.

The earth had become too small, for the living and the dead. In half a century a funeral had become a luxury that only few could afford who had died before judgment day. But who cares about a single body when the whole planet is dying.


Earlier the remains of humanity had only had the right to be there as long as the living remembered them. A human being remembers their relatives, their friends and colleagues. But his conscience only reached back three generations before it faded away. Just more then fifty years.

With the same ease, you let the picture of our grandfather or your friend from school out of our conscience into absolute nothingness. The memories of a human can last longer than the bones, but as soon as the last one who remembered us has passed we dissolve with time.


Back then there was almost no more space in the thick family album for old and brown turned pictures, but almost nobody that looked through it could say for sure who was on the photos. The photographs of the passed can be interpreted as some kind of mask, but not as a print of their soul when they were living. And the photographs only decay as slow as the people that live inside them

What remains?

Our children?

They can look like us. In their reflection we mirror ourselves in a mysterious way. United with those we had loved. In their gestures, in their mimics we happily find ourselves or with sorrow. Friends confirm that our sons and daughters are just like us. Maybe that gives us a certain extension of ourselves when we are no more. We ourselves weren’t the first. We have been made from countless copies that have been before us, just another chimera, always half from our fathers and mothers who are again the half of their parents. So is there nothing unique in us but are we just an endless mixture of small mosaic parts that never endingly exist in us? Have we been formed out of millions of small parts to a complete picture that has no own worth and has to fall into its parts again?

Does it even matter to be happy if we found ourselves in our children, a certain line that has been traveling through our bodies for millions of years?

What remains of me?
