Product Description

Product Description

The entire world lies in ruins. The human race has been almost completely wiped out. Radiation renders half-ruined cities uninhabitable, and rumors say that beyond the city limits lies nothing but boundless expanses of scorched desert and dense thickets of mutated forest. But no one knows what really is out there.

As civilisation draws its final, shuddering breaths, memories of humankind’s former glory are already obscured by a thick fog of fantasy and fiction. More than twenty years have passed since the day when the final plane took off. Corroded, rust-pitted railroad tracks lead off into nowhere. The great construction projects of the final great age lie in ruins, destined never to be completed. The airwaves are empty, and when radio operators tune in, for the millionth time, to the frequencies on which New York, Paris, Tokyo and Buenos Aires once used to broadcast, all they hear is a distant howling.

It is only twenty years since it happened. But man is no longer the master of the earth. New creatures born of the radiation are far better adapted to this new world than human beings. The human era is almost over. Those who refuse to believe it are very few, numbering mere tens of thousands. They do not know if anyone else has been saved, or if they are the last people left on the planet. They live in the Moscow Metro – the largest nuclear bomb-shelter ever built – in the final refuge of the human race.

On that day they were all in the Metro, and that was what saved their lives. Now hermetic seals protect them against radiation and monsters from the surface, decrepit but functional filters purify their water and air, dynamos built by amateur engineers generate electricity, underground farms cultivate mushrooms and breed pigs. But the central control system of the Metro disintegrated long ago, and its stations have become dwarf states, each with a population united by its own ideology and religion – or merely by loyalty to the water filters.

This is a world without any tomorrow. There is no place in it for dreams, plans and hopes. Here instincts take priority over feelings, and the most powerful instinct of all is survival. Survival at any price.

What happened before the events recounted in this book is described in the novel Metro 2033.

This novel is being translated into English and published on Amazon chapter by chapter.

This is Chapter 1.

HASH(0xa4abd168) out of 5 stars Can't wait for more!!! June 8 2013

Wow! I really enjoyed the atmosphere of this sneak peek. Very eerie and quiet, you can feel the tension in the air as an important fringe station's fight for survival is interrupted by something strange. I'm still working on learning to read Cyrillic, so I'm hoping the full novel comes out in English very soon.

How long can it take to translate a book? It's been years since the first book and plenty of people want the next book. The games and the books are really great so I would recommend them all to anyone who loves the post apocalypse genre.
HASH(0xa50ccc6c) out of 5 stars This is only the first chapter - not the whole book. June 27 2015

I didn't read the description thoroughly and thought I was buying the book, not just the first chapter. >: -(
That said, it's a great book... Read Metro 2033 first, though.

It may seem a bit slow at first with all of the continuous narration but the twist ending is awesome and the dark, grim Metro atmosphere is still there.
