Description

The year is 2033. The world has been reduced to rubble. Humanity is nearly extinct and the half-destroyed cities have become uninhabitable through radiation. Beyond their boundaries, they say, lie endless burned-out deserts and the remains of splintered forests. Survivors still remember the past greatness of humankind, but the last remains of civilisation have already become a distant memory.

Man has handed over stewardship of the earth to new life-forms. Mutated by radiation, they are better adapted to the new world. A few score thousand survivors live on, not knowing whether they are the only ones left on earth, living in the Moscow Metro - the biggest air-raid shelter ever built. Stations have become mini-statelets, their people uniting around ideas, religions, water-filters, or the need to repulse enemy incursion.

VDNKh is the northernmost inhabited station on its line, one of the Metro's best stations and secure. But a new and terrible threat has appeared. Artyom, a young man living in VDNKh, is given the task of penetrating to the heart of the Metro to alert everyone to the danger and to get help. He holds the future of his station in his hands, the whole Metro - and maybe the whole of humanity.

A Russian dystopia

Fantastic reader. Its great and lively voice brings us deep into this dystopia that questions the meaning of life.

Read it while playing the game!

I started playing the game before reading this book, and finished them both together, there are almost no spoilers shared between the video game and the book, on the contrary, they compliment each other better than any other book+movie or book+video-game I have seen so far.

I recommend you do them both together, don't start one after you finish the other, trust me it will make the experiences on both mediums much more amazing than any one would have been on its own..

I myself play a lot of games but if you don't, I think you might even enjoy it more, you can find the game cheap on online digital stores.

A soulsearching adventure with horror

If you could sum up Metro 2033 in three words, what would they be?

Psychological horror adventure

Who was your favorite character and why?

The main character development during the story makes him very interresting. It also makes you question yourself during the story if you would share his views or not as the story progresses.

Which scene was your favorite?

When the main character is returing to his home station and he start asking himself about everything that has happen to him and he survived and others did not.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

A story that will make you question your own place in the world and what is truly valuable and what is not.

Any additional comments?

The book itself is a bit hard to read on its own. Mainly because it was translated in a very google-like way. With the audiobook, however, it becomes much easier to follow the story all the way to the end. I recommend when you buy the book to buy this audiobook as well. I will guarantee that you will not be dissapointed when you do that.

Loved the book, Leary of the series.

If you could sum up Metro 2033 in three words, what would they be?

Ethics, pathos, plot.
It is a great character-based first person book.
It really drags you into the dystopian future of the main character.
This book left me wanting more. It was a "page turner" that I listened to as much as possible. The end was ... well, both a surprise and a plot twist, and in that sense, very satisfying.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Metro 2033?

The end. It is just awesome.

Have you listened to any of Rupert Degas’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes.

Any additional comments?

I won't likely listen to the rest of the series, I've heard negative things, and apparently, its not the same main character. Which I understand, but still, I don't know that the universe would hold up for me without the main character. It is really a character study more than anything else.

Excellent in every aspect!

Where does Metro 2033 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Probably THE best audiobook i have heard and my guess is it will stay the best for a long time.

Have you listened to any of Rupert Degas’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Rupert Degas is an excellent narrator but this is one of his best performances.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

The book gave me chills several times over and the ending forced a few tears to my eye.

Beautifully bleak post-apocalyptic fantasy

I could not have been more surprised and impressed by this book; Glukhovsky’s prose is beyond eloquent and he’s created this rich lore and universe, occupied by these incredibly compelling characters, to the point where nigh each one has a moment of stealing the entire story. This is of course amplified by Degas’ masterful performance. He embody’s the mindset of these characters in a truly fulfilling way. I found myself laughing, clapping in triumph and excitement and had chills running down my spine, all through his understanding and handling of the situation, circumstances and the characters facing them.

This story is like heart of darkness mixed with fallout (understandably why they adapted them into video games). But it grants you access into the minds of an incredibly rich cast of characters with a plethora of perspectives to the point where you feel like you’ve absorbed a rather valuable/credible philosophical tome.

I couldn’t recommend this story more!

Hats off to Dmitry Glukhovsky and Rupert Degas.

Fantasticly written. It's extremely unerving while also being an adventure with great philosophical discussions. The setting is claustrophobic. This is the humans last desperate attempt at survival, and it is pity. You witness the greatness of humanity and how it can all fall apart as we become the prey of new creatures. Like the dinosaurs used to rule this planet once, they all died out in catastrophies and eventually dwindled out. What we witness here is how this happens to humanity as other species, more adapted to the new world, take over.

This is not even mentioning all the great characters and encounters Artyom faces in the book. Rupert Degas makes a fantastic performance taking on loads of characters that all feel unique, no small part thanks to him. I just bought the sequel which has mixed reviews so I'm excited to form my own opinion on it.

PS: This is terribly written because I'm writing this 3.20 in the morning because this book made me sit up listening all night.

Hörbuch erster Klasse

Ich werde das Hörbuch hier in zwei Kategorien einteilen, das Hörbuch selbst und Sprecherleistung.
Das Hörbuch is erste Sahne! Der Autor nimmt den Leser mit ins postapokalyptische Moskau, genauer gesagt in die Metro darunter. Hier erlebt man die Geschichte des Jungen Artjom der aus seiner Heimatstation hinauszieht um das gruseln zu lernen. Nein natürlich nicht! Er zieht hinaus um die Bedrohung durch die "Dark Ones" zu eliminieren. Der Autor versteht es hierbei die grundgegebene Angst des Menschen vor dem Dunklen auszunutzen und zieht den Zuhörer durch detalierte Beschreibungen der Umgebung und der Körperreaktionen auf Angst in seinen Bann.
Denn in der Metro sind jetzt mutierte Ratten und Moster zugange und es passieren Dinge, die sich die Mensche nicht erklären können. Man fühlt quasi mit wenn der Protagonist einsam durch die verlassenen Tunnel der Metro schleicht, mit einer Taschenlampe die leider nicht sonderlich hell leuchtet...
Zum Sprecher sage ich nur GRANDIOS! Er intoniert den russichen Akzent im Englischen so gut das es sehr zur Atmosphäre beiträgt! Weiterhin gibt der den Verschiedenen Personen unterschiedlich Stimmen, Tonlagen und passt den Tonfall den jeweiligen Situationen an. Auch die (vermutlich) korrekte Aussprache der Sationsnamen, welche sich am Anfang schwer auseinanderhalten lassen trägt zum Gesamtbild teil.

Ich wünsche mir auch die ungekürzte Fassung von Metro 2034 und Metro 2035 (wenn es nun mal erscheint) auf Englisch.
Zum Verständnis kann ich nicht sonderlich viel sagen, da ich sehr gut in Englisch bin, Austauschschüler in den Südstaaten der USA für 1 Jahr und deshalb keine Probleme habe diverse Dialekte im Englischen zu verstehen. Ob man dieses Hörbuch jemandem Empfehlen kann der nicht so gut Englisch kann, lässt sich daher von meiner Seite schlecht beurteilen. Aber es gibt ja noch die (leider) gekürzte Fassung auf Deutsch.

Amazing

I simply love the atmosphere that is created in the metro series, every time I read or listen to it.
If you enjoy a believable world with believable characters this is a great buy.
Rupert Degas of course is just as amazing a reader in this as always.
Worth it 10/10

A wild ride.

If you love dark and mysterious stories you'll love this. Normally you have a boring bit in every book, but this is engaging till the end.

Warum nur dieser Akzent?

Was mochten Sie nicht am Vortrag von Rupert Degas?

Eigentlich ist die Geschichte ganz spannend und die erzählende Stimme ist recht angenehm, doch die Dialoge in dem gekünstelten russischen Akzent sind einfach nur grauenhaft. Ich habe es zum Schluss kaum noch Ertragen und hab das Hörbuch nur mit Mühe zu Ende gehört. Ich hab mich nur noch gefragt "Warum nur dieser Akzent?"
