Last Updated on November 19, 2019 The Metro 2033 books have swept the world by storm since 2009 when the original Metro 2033 was written by Dmitry Glukhovsky, who created the original trilogy (Metro 2033, Metro 2034, and Metro 2035).
The Metro books are based on a post apocalyptic world that was destroyed during WWIII, and the original story is set in Moscow, particularly in the underground Moscow metro stations which were some of the biggest nuclear bomb shelters back in the day. Among the survivors, we have our main character, Artyom.
The original Metro 2033, and Metro 2034, and 2035 books written by Dmitry Glukhovsky in Russian language feature Artyom, a 20-year-old young man, among the survivors, who is living at a metro subway station inside the bowels of Moscow underground. As a very young child, his mother gave him to some people who were running to the metro when she was chased by oversized mutant rats. She knew she was dying, but she wanted her small son to live.
So he ended up at the VDNKh station and lived there until his late teen years when he met Hunter, a ranger who gave him a very important mission to carried out, one who took him across several dangerous roads both within the metro lines and up on the contaminated surface. 2b1af7f3a8
