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.

    "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.

    "Really great stories."

    The second of this trilogy wasn't that great, but the third was well worth it. I got into these books after playing the video games and the books are even better than the game was..

    Story
    "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

    Story
    "Wrap-up with a shift of tone"

    Metro 2035 wraps up the series with a shift in tone as the story returns to Artyom and his feverish quest to make contact with any other survivors outside of the Metro and the blasted, radioactive ruins of Moscow. Starting as another Metro adventure/quest, the tone of the story shifts to greater themes of control, destiny and the price paid for staying content with what you know. This is a story of humans and societies -- Metro has always been in large part about the microcosms within it: Polis, Hansa, the Reds, the Fascists, etc but now the mutants and paranormal that haunted the previous books are gone with scarcely a word and the story remains firmly on mankind's treatment of itself, not Dark Ones, winged demons or psychic influences. Many key players from the previous books return, changed in the intervening years. The ending is a bit rushed and the ending analogies a little heavy-handed but the book overall will likely satisfy fans of the first two. A few parts start to drag or go on overly long but (again) if you read the first couple books you're likely used to it by now.

    On the audio front, Degas continues to give a strong performance although this was the first book where I had a little trouble at times telling characters apart, especially during long conversations.

    "metro 2035"

    A bittersweet journey that twists and turns through this amazing series' finale. I would love to see another trilogy which would continue Artyom's journey through the new world he fought for!

    "Great story and ending!"
    What made the experience of listening to Metro 2035 the most enjoyable?

    The story and the way writer explains protagonist's internal thoughts.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Artyom - He was the protagonist and story revolved around his though process


    What about Rupert Degas’s performance did you like?

    Although it was an English translation, Dega's Russian accent for the characters made it much more authentic.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The chapter that he was enslaved by the 4th Reich.

    Story
    "Loved all 3 of them."

    Book 3 was very different compared to the first. second as anyone who's read would know is the driest of the 3. In this book, watching Artyom become a man was heart wrenching as much as it was mentally stimulating. The morals and points of view are memorable, story goes at a good pace, and the ending was satisfying.

    "An excellent sequel to 2033"

    Despite not following on directly from 2033, set instead after the events of the video game "Metro: Last Light", this is a excellent sequel. Continuing the story of Artyom as he finds out one of the Metros deepest secrets, and setting up the story for the upcoming game "Metro: Exodus." Rupert Degas' narration is superb.

    Story
    "The end of the end is here."
    Would you try another book written by Dmitry Glukhovsky or narrated by Rupert Degas?

    Yes I would listen to another book. Don't wanna brag but I have already listened to three. Metro 2033, Metro 2034 and Metro 2035.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    I was looking forward to seeing where this book was going to end. I was really looking to see if there was anyone alive on the surface still.


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

    Think I will have to say Artyom. I had a bit of a wobble liking him when he started acting like a spoiled kid and made all the wrong decisions after quick snap judgements without thinking things through.


    If this book were a film would you go see it?

    I would the first book Metro 2033 but i think the other two books don't have a big enough hook to make a movie with it.


    Any additional comments?

    All three of the Metro books are worth a listen and Rupert Degas did a brilliant job of reading and making all the characters different. I can't think of any that were the same or just slight variant of other voices he did. Some of the words in Russia i mauled while trying to read the book but listening to him read it it was so much easier to understand.

    "Disappointing"

    An anti-climactic and weak end to the series which lost most of the first book's wonder and charm, devaluing a fascinating and unique setting with Illuminati-style nonsense and various questionable plot twists that become obnoxiously predictable.

    Bit of a letdown. Some parts went on a bit and lost its way but it was a must after reading the 1st two. It was nice how he spliced the 1st two books into the 3rd. Linked up well

    "Extremely different"

    Great final chapter 2 and extremely different sort of story really shows corruption of political interest in the haves and the have nots, people choosing to be sheep and one man's ideals are his ideals no matter how much he fights, people will always choose the easy option change is more scary than freedom,

    For me this book could be studied like books from the past such as animal farm and Lord of the flies there is a lot more here than I can write short paragraph about true work of art and I feel it will be a classic
