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.

The end of the end is here.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
