Publisher's Summary

The Metro books have put Dmitry Glukhovsky in the vanguard of Russian speculative fiction alongside the creator of Night Watch, Sergei Lukyanenko. A year after the events of Metro 2033, the last few survivors of the apocalypse, surrounded by mutants and monsters, face a terrifying new danger as they hang on for survival in the tunnels of the Moscow Metro. Featuring blistering action, vivid and tough characters, claustrophobic tension and dark satire, the Metro books have become bestsellers across Europe.

    "Stay clear"

    I really enjoyed metro 2033 and I was excited to listen to metro 2034 but this book did not amount to the previous. The book dragged on at times and would eventually lead to a climax only to be let down when the climax came.

    The story was boring most of the time and I cannot stop a book once I am listening. I struggled to finish it and I am not sure I want to listen to the next one.

    Story
    "Nothing to do with first book or games."

    It was hard to follow right out of the gate. I had to give this one a second listen. It has nothing to do with the first book or either of the video games. You are very deep into the story before they bring up the main character from the first book and his inclusion will make you wish they left him out of this story. This book is about Hunter, a young girl, an old man and a mysterious virus. It is a good story, set in the same dark and scarey METRO system of Moscow. The author didnt tie the two books together enough for me I guess. He does have the protagonists big reveal tie into the dark ones but waites almost untill the end of the book to do it. I guess if you really want to learn more about the dark ones and what became of them, you'll just have to play the video games. Still, this book is definately worth a listen, just dont go into it expecting to learn anything more about the events and characters of the first book than you already know.

    "Pales in Comparison to its Predecessor"

    A strong vocal performance cannot salvage this hasty and heavy handed sequel. The book fails the reconcile it's philosophical musings to the actions of its characters, leaving the listener with a furrowed brow from bewilderment.

    "unexpected"

    Honestly I was disappointed that this story wasn't about Artyom and while he was featured pretty late in the book I really wished that they hadn't named the book Metro 2034 because I was led to believe that it was continuing the story of Artyom but aside from that the story of Homer, Sasha, and Hunter was a good one and this book really builds on world of Metro and is well worth a read- or listen

    "Not 2033 but not bad."

    Not as good as the first in the series, but good none the less. I really wish it would have started where the first left off, but the events of the first are barely mentioned. This book is about Hunter and a new group of people. So if you're expecting to know what happened after the events of 2033 it's not really here. I will say it's still a good listen though. Now I'm gonna check out 2035.

    Story
    "Like a Sophomore Album"

    This addition to Metro 2033 is about as fulfilling as Michael Crichton's The Lost World was to his Jurassic Park. It was extremely anticlimactic. I kept holding on, hoping that there would be some explosive discovery or some surprising connection to the original story's characters. That never happened. I'd be hard pressed to even summarize the story to a friend because so little happened. The narrator did an amazing job, again. Sadly, he didn't have much of a story to tell. This part of the series has made me know not to pre-order the third addition to the series.

    "An average follow up to the splendid 2033"

    I really loved 2033 and had high expectations on this sequel, but unfortunately it failed to deliver. Even though pretty well narrated by Rupert Degas the story never caught on with me. Glukhovsky didn't manage to recreate the intense and dark feeling that made the first book so special.

    "An honestly good story"

    This is the story about hope and following dreams even if they are rubbish and false. Although not the story of Artyom. It is the story of hunter and his what had happened to him and his resurfacing. Brought through the eyes or Homer and others.

    It is really a good read and the performance is brought out very well. Each character comes out in the vocalists work fluidly. Just sit back and enjoy the story.

    Story
    "A riveting tale far from the liking of the game."

    At first I glanced over the book thinking of the videogame but once I started listening I realized the book took on a while new approach well after the time period of the first book. Cascading the reader into a deep erotic view of life in a post apocalyptic life underground. This book leaves warmth in my imagination like no other.

    "too slow"

    I really struggled to finish it. I've read the first in the series and found that one slow, but it built up to a good finish. This book seemed to do nothing more than describe and build a story, without actually telling one. There was no climax and no excitement, when it finished it was a real surprise!

    Story
    "Nothing like the same draw as the first book"

    This story is somewhat interesting, but I don't really care about any of the characters nor do I feel much underlying story arc - I'm not actually sure what's real or what's significant, but I feel like I'm meant to.

    Second point is the first book had no female characters - that's okay for me as a guy, I can live with it. Boring, but I can live with it. This book is just so steeped in misogyny and terrible female character writing that it's almost sickeningly dull. I can attest that the Russian girls I've met have, fortunately, very much not been like those Dmitry Glukhovsky is capable of imagining.

    "No plot"

    Metro 2033 was pretty good. This is nothing like it, except of a few good paragraphs. There's no coherent plot, no stand out characters, nothing. It's basically a few people walking the tunnels for no real reason with a few things happening for no reason. I was extremely disappointed.

    "Good story"

    Not quite as mind-blowing as the first one, but still a very solid adventure. I’ve got a feeling it’s purposefully leading to the last book, so there’s that. I do miss the transition sound effects from the first one, though.

    "Not as good as the First"

    I can't say I didn't enjoy this book because I did, it felt like it jumped from one part to another too quickly within a chapter.

    But the journey from different view points expands your experience of this world of the Metro.

    Brilliantly performed again by Rupert Degas.
