    "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.

    "Well, it's ok, I guess."

    I did like the narrator, having distinct differences between all the characters. He did rather well. It's just a shame the story wasn't as interesting as the original was.

    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.

    This book had some stunning literary descriptions, but never had the story to compliment it.

    "Wish Audible Would Let Me Return It"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I have no idea. I try to give books a chance but at the 4 hour mark I couldn't find much of anything I liked about it, other than the narrator's cool voice.


    What was most disappointing about Dmitry Glukhovsky’s story?

    Meandering with no noticeable objective. As I said, I couldn't finish it so I'm really just reviewing what I was able to pay attention to during the first 4 hours, which wasn't much.


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

    No, but I definitely would.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment. I really didn't like Metro 2033 either but I pushed through it hoping 2034 would be better.


    Any additional comments?

    Audible: I buy loads of books from you guys...many extra beyond my subscription. Please let me return just this one, the only one I've ever wanted to return!

    "one of the best audio book I've ever listened to."

    This is one of those books,you will regret nvr listening to,and shouldn't be a good read.It's set in the subway,where survivors have fled,the surface is now a wasteland populated by horrors and dangers that only the brave dare engage,why and how this happened,and the disappearances of heavily armed groups who simply put ther weapons down a die,or are ripped apart,mankind is no longer master of his environment.How the author has managed to write about something that isnt the most interesting of subjects,the subway,has been turned into a must read,listen.
