A bit of a disappointment after 2033. Much of what I enjoyed from 2033 is missing here, specifically the horror elements and the supernatural encounters in the dark tunnels and surface wasteland. With only one such encounter in the early chapters, 2034 deals almost entirely with humanity's condition living in the tunnels and a disease outbreak in one station. The translation has improved, but my edition had a lot of unnecessary hyphens and dialogue was not properly formatted. Multiple characters would speak in the same paragraph making it difficult to tell who was talking.

Hunter, who got the ball rolling in 2033, is the main focus here. He is torn between his desire to help the inhabitants of the Metro, while also convinced that exterminating an entire station is the only option to prevent a plague from spreading. Following him is Homer, an older man who was a Metro employee before the war who now wishes to chronicle the events in the Metro. Sasha, a recent orphan joins them, and feels a need to help Hunter retain his humanity. Artyom is absent, the character appearing around the middle of the book is a different person. Why the author gave him the same name, I'm not sure. Miller (Melnik) makes a brief appearance and explains why Hunter is the way he is. He also mentions Artyom from 2033 and the aftermath of the first novel.

It seemed like the author wanted a romance, but this fell flat. None of the characters were particularly interesting, and without the mystery or danger from 2033 it was far too easy to nod off while reading. ( )

In comparison to the first book Metro 2033, I have to say this book is rather a let down, events don't really follow on from where the first book finished instead we get one character returning with no real reference between where he was, where he is now & what happened in between. We're left to make assumptions about what has gone on, and whilst the first book was a mastery of world building I couldn't help but feel that this was just sort of a luke warm follow up milking the success of the first novel.

METRO 2034 begins not long after the end of METRO 2033. The main characters are the “Hunter” from the first book, a man called Homer who believes it is his vocation to write a history and chronicle of the Metro, and a teenage girl named Sasha who has been recently orphaned. Sasha’s father used to be one of the dictator’s of a Metro city-state until he and the girl were banished to an area that had little to no hope of survival. They did survive. Her father managed to live long enough for her to mature and learn to defend herself before his death. Hunter, Homer and Sasha come together in a collision of missions, Sasha’s to survive, Hunter and Homer to find out what happened to a station that no longer broadcasts or sends runners with news. Artyom does not have a large part in this story. He does not make an appearance until Chapter 10. Yet everything that is happening is a consequence of his actions in METRO 2033. The threat this time is not the Dark Ones. It is something much worse and something almost impossible to stop. As with the first book, the characters are fantastic and I grew to care about them. The action is non-stop.

The audiobooks of METRO 2033 and METRO 2034 are narrated by Rupert Degas. He is fantastic. His accent for the Russian speakers if marvelous. When simply narrating, not the dialogue, he has a very clear voice with an English accent. His female voices are very well done. I have since added several of his titles to my wish list.

The last book in the series METRO 2035 has not been released in English yet. I wonder if a social media campaign of begging to the author could help facilitate that happening. ( )

This one is as bad as the first one was good. Can't believe it was even written by the same person. ( )

Слабое продолжение. Точней, это ответвление сюжета, описание параллельных событий, несвязанных с событиями первой книги. Мы узнаем о судьбе Хантера и о Саше, девушке, которая периодически слышит "голос только просыпающейся в ней женщины". Это дословная цитата.
Да, к сожалению, своего редактора Глуховский видимо уволил во время написания второй книги, поэтому она являет собой упражнения графомана, который оттачивает свои навыки на несчастной аудитории. Добрая часть книги это фразы наподобие вышеприведенной про просыпающуюся женщину, и я пролистывала по диагонали. Сюжету вторая часть ничего не добавила, кроме одной фразы, но я не буду писать спойлеры!

En utmärkt översättning bidrar till att göra denna thriller till en utmärkt uppföljning av ett fascinerande romanprojekt.

Metro 2034 är, för att använda en sliten dikotomi, en lyckad förening av högt och lågt. Som en blandning av Mad Max och Aniara, tänker jag flera gånger under läsningen.
