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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
No, but I definitely would.
Disappointment. I really didn't like Metro 2033 either but I pushed through it hoping 2034 would be better.

"An excellent sequel to the original"
Yes, If you enjoyed the original you'll probably like this too.
This is a dreamier more descriptive book than the original, still an excellent read.
A great book, not as good as 2033 but still a brilliant book. Excellent writing and story. definitely worth a read
