Neko's Book Reviews: Metro 2034

Ohayou, guys! I know that not many of you read books, because 90% of the users are barely literate enough to call each other gay, but I've decided to make a book review. I know it's a crazy idea here and I guess nobody did that before. Okay, here we go.

Metro 2034 is the sequel to Metro 2033 and both of the novels were written by Dimitri Gluckovsky, some Russian guy. The action takes place in near future and shows a post-apocalyptic vision of the world. What makes this book unique, it's that the characters are Russians and the usual anti-nuclear shelter vault known from the Fallout series is replaced with the Russian subway. 

What  do you get? A great world, mutants and mystery. Those are the positive parts. The characters are shitty lame cliches. You'll get a tall muscular guy with a troubling past who acts like a tank and has a dog's name - Hunter. You'll get an annoying old bum WHO'S THE MAIN CHARACTER! Seriously. A faggot-ass bum is the main protagonist. This shit is so lame. You'll also get a narcissistic bitch boy, who's trying to impress the lady. And the lady he's trying to impress, who's kinda pretty but she didn't realise it because she was covered in poop and dirt for most of the time. 

The idea of creating a whole society with classes and making living, accessible and monster-inhabited sections is great. Bullets are the currency and there's an option to leave the subway but the land is contaminated with radiation and there's a lot of mutants living outside. One of the worst kinds of jobs is a looter of the old world, because the radiation is bad for health and there's monsters around.

I recommend this book to fans of post-apocalyptic themes. Especially if you're a fan of the Fallout series
