Not bad. Definitely better than the mess that was Metro 2034. I started this series almost ten years ago, long before it was published in English, and I remember Metro 2033 as being one of the creepiest books I've ever read. This last one wraps up the story nicely, and gives a necessary hope spot to characters I've begun to care about, but it's missing that component that made Metro 2033 so addictive. The mystical aspect, the Lovecraftian horror aspect, was what made it different from your avera ...more

The first thought that came to my head after finishing the last book of the Metro trilogy was "How come Dmitry Glukhovsky lives in Russia and still is not incarcerated?" I mean, everyone knows about political situation in Russia, and Metro 2035 gets VERY political. I guess his saving grace is that it is "a fantasy - nothing is real about this book". But despite being "a fantasy", Glukhovsky succeeds in creating a book with lots and lots of situations and ideas that represent the current state of ...more

It feels like a little boy, that have just learned a few bad words, has written this book. No mystery anymore, no suspense or creative storytelling. It's all about political manipulation with a huge amount of brain washing. Take my advice, keep out of this shit.
No more monsters, no more anomalies in the tunnels... a bleak world devoid of hope, filled with human monsters and puppet masters, with most just rats just running in a maze for no purpose and with no hope. This book really spoiled the series for me. Sorry, Artyom.

Also, the translation was abysmal.

The final installment in the Metro series not only lives up to its name, but also takes it to a different level.
Hoping to read more books from Glukhovsky in the future.

There came a point a little over halfway through Metro 2035 that I realized I was actually interested in what was happening...this was short lived, unfortunately. Once the heat of the moment dissolved back into the boring meanderings that comprised the first half-or-so of the book, I honestly felt that I could not continue. It probably shouldn't be considered surprising after the abomination of a book that preceded this, but it's still remarkably disappointing that this is what the series has be ...more

Shelves: dnf
DNF at around 60% - I can't even get through this with the audiobook. Literally everything declines into petty irrelevance and disgusting sexism.

I really wanted entire trilogy be more like the first book. The first book was great, it had everything: action, mystery, great atmosphere and most importantly a build-up and the conclusion for a single story. Second book was weird in general, but the final book surely must be better, right?
Well, not really. Firstly, what really surprised me was that there were not a single monster mentioned (not counting the humans) in the entire book. The characters freely travel trough empty Moscow even thoug

[Night Mode Reading]: I loved the first book. Nothing was real in the darkness, and you could trust no senses. The voice might be real, but it might as well be the dark seeping through your ears, telling you lies. Artyom, in the dark, was told to stop once, and he did. And that saved his life. I loved the second book too. Hunter was a broken man. Dark Ones tried to communicate, but found his mind incompatible, thus accidentally, or purposefully, splitting it. Now he lives with madness inside of ...more

"Metro 2035" (Metro #3), D. Glukhovsky (2015): 5.0 Stars.

“It’s not allowed Artyom. Open it. Open up, I tell you.” “The station master told us … He said not to let anyone out.” “Do you take me for some kind of idiot? Anyone – who’s that? Who is this anyone?” “I have my orders! For the protection of the station … Against the radiation. I have my orders. Got that?”

After the second part of the series disappointed me, I placed great hope in the final book of the trilogy. And my hope was not disappo

I was really confused to find metro 2035 in a bookshop, since I never knew there was going to be another sequel to the series. I was even more surprized to find out that the book was focused around Artyom, the main character from the first metro book. Artyoms death in metro 2034 was retconned, and he survived the flood after all. This was really good because I actually cared about Artyom, unlike the characters of 2034.

The biggest dissapointment in the middle metro (2034) was the unbelievable am
3.5. No monsters, no creepy tunnels, just stupid people everywhere.

Artyom, the hero protagonist for whom I partially named my doglet (mostly for the actual goddess Artemis though), takes us once again through the harsh, hellish Metro. (Look at my perfect commas, read 'em and weep!)

The Dark Ones are gone. I thought a trace of them might remain but no, Artyom totally obliterated them the first time around. When Artyom does something he does it well.

Each day Artyom goes about his work in Exhibition, serving watch at checkpoint at the mouth of Exhibition and pedali

This book isn't good y'all.. And it's ending badly..

It's gone from amazingly dark and creepy and only ever slightly heteronormative (metro 2033) to a weird side track (metro 2034) and now into chaotic, paranoid, pseudointellectual misogynistic eugenics with a dash of rape, and a clusterfuck of a storyline veering every which way...

I'm just disappointed tbh.. the first book was so amazing, and still gives me chills when I reread it. it's magically scary.

the last one is just.. meh.

The only thing I missed in this book - no mutant monsters of any kind.

It’s been twenty years past 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 sur ...more
The Metro trilogy is dark, messy, unforgiving dystopian science fiction and I really enjoyed all of it. In total, I spent 51 hours in the Moscow Metro (subway) plus time reading the electronic versions of the short prologue and epilogue to 2033! Why aren't these books in major bookstores in the US?

Summarizing from my prior Metro reviews: the series is set in the Moscow subway system after a nuclear war. The system consists of 223 stations on 12 lines and were designed as nuclear shelters with s

This book is way better than the 2 previous ones, and it is a very different kind of book.
This book is no Power Fantasy, its not fantasy in any way actually, it set aside all paranormal activities related to the Metro, and it focuses purely and totally on POLITICS.
You can see the shift from the first book to the second, it's slightly more critical, less fantastic, but it still keeps some fantasy elements, but here, here we dwell on something even way more important, this is a book about the psy
Well, this took a forever to read. I remember liking the first book in this trilogy when I read it 5 years ago, and had quite high hopes that this would live up to it. It didn't. The basic idea of there being life outside the Moscow metro was great, and the quest to find it could have been good. But it just dragged on and on with episodes that did not bring any depth to any character and seemed to be written in just so that the author could present different ways to display atrocities. And those ...more

Incredibly well-written, with excellent alterations between stream of consciousness and regular narration. The world of the Metro remains stunningly dark and claustrophobic, with this book being the most ominous, gloomy and grimy of the three. Offering an astonishing insight into human nature and perception of the world, Metro 2035 comes out as terrifyingly real and horribly possible.

Really like it. :)
Well, it wasn't as good as the second book in my opinion. And the ending is kinda dissapointing. But as always very realistic. And makes you think. A lot. About... well... everything.
It's been a few days now since I finished it and still my mind is racing everytime I think about it.
There are some inconsistences I noticed with some charakters.. but the second book beeing so entirely different, and with some little hints here and there you could interpret it as a type of the unreliable narrator
"The world doesn't want to be saved... It wants to eat you alive."

I write this review in the shadow of having read 2033 and 2034. More so the former, as the latter goes into Hunter's story and I felt wasn't as good as 2033.

As 2033 ended, I felt like I had finished a conversation with the two men Artyom meets in Polyanka. One of many, conversations; with mirages more than ghosts, sitting by a fire in a dusky, deserted station with a cat, talking philosophy, and how much or if any of that matte

This was so awesome! The things that happen here are way bigger than the Dark Ones; a complete redemption after 2034, we get back that 2033 feeling and Artyom as our protagonist. Of course the book lacks some things and it takes a while for it to start but when it finally did, I couldn’t put it down. We find a more mature and traumatized Artyom with a wife that lacks character development and in a desperate crusade to find out if there’s someone else out here. We find some 2034 characters here t ...more

This is the first book in Russian that I finish. Originally I was hoping for the English translation- but having recently finished 2034, I realized that I might as well get it read in my mother tongue.
This one is the best of the 3; although there is less thrill than the first, the overall roller coaster of events makes it a great read.
It did feel like a lot of genres mixed in together; a love story, some drama, politics, philosophy, combat, history & heroism. That part made the book feel r

The first part of series was brilliant. I was little disappointed by a second. Third is.... Brilliant again. Thank you Dmitri :)

Artyom returned for this third in the trilogy. That’s something. But, where before he was the only character in the series I remotely cared about, in this poorly written, meandering effort to apparently meet a publisher’s demand for “More Metro” I found myself no longer caring whether Artyom lived or died after the first five chapters. I just didn’t care anymore. Is that bad… to not care whether a fictional character lives or dies?

The plot in Metro 2035 develops like a chase scene in a movie me
