3.0 out of 5 stars Isn't as good as 2033 but worth your time, 11 Mar. 2014

This review is from: Metro 2034 (Kindle Edition)
Let me start by saying that Metro 2033 is flat out one of my favorite novels, I loved the dark, oppressive mood throughout, the constant twists & turns and it really felt like you were along with Artyom for the long ride through hell (and back) even after a third read through. Metro 2034 shares a lot with its older brother in terms of well written characters and a detailed, textured world, yet it is very unfocused.

Essentially the book is about the return of Hunter, who we follow as he tries to stop the spread of a deadly virus through the Metro. There a few supporting characters throughout, each with their own side stories none of which make it a enthralling read like 2034 was. We have more deadly tunnels, corrupt people and strange goings on, even a recurring character from 2033 [nudge nudge wink wink] but Glukhovsky's excellent writing can't make up for the lack of an engaging plot to follow.

It's worth a read for anyone who enjoys dark, apocalyptic science fiction or anyone that enjoyed the original but fails to live up the grand quest-like feel that the predecessor had. Also worth noting that the translation is much better this time around, there are a few fluffed sentences in the original, no such errors jumped out in 2034; maybe in the second read through (of which there will be many!).

Enjoy!
