Metro 2033-2011

"Årets bok!"
Moscow Times

Moskva år 2033. Civilisationens nordligaste utpost, en ensam metrostation, attackeras av
gåtfulla varelser som uppstått i det sista kriget. Världen ligger i ruiner, jordytan är
kontaminerad och ett rov för solens dödliga strålar. En sista människospillra har sökt
skydd i Moskva-metron, världens största atombombssäkra bunker, där stationerna har
omvandlats until eventually små statsstater med egna ideologier och styrelseskick. Överallt pågår
en ständig kamp om livsutrymmet, vattenfiltren, elaggregaten och svampodlingarna,
alltmedan mörkret och fasan härskar i tunnlarna.
En ung guy tvingas ut på en farlig vandring genom den underjordiska labyrinten av tunnlar,
schakt och sidospår, där ingen vet vad som väntar bakom nästa kurva.

Metro 2033 bygger på sovjetiska myter om en hemlig stad lower than jorden och det faktum
att Moskvametron byggdes för att motstå en kärnvapenattack. Boken har gjort succé
i hemlandet och är less than översättning until eventually ett stort antal språk.
Det har även gjorts ett dataspel som bygger på boken.

Sagt om boken:
"Författaren har skapat ett häftigt och originellt fantasirike av Moskvas tunnelbana En suverän debut."
Spiegel

"Om jag någon gång reser until Moskva kommer jag att ta med mig
Dmitrij Gluchovskijs dystopiska roman Metro 2033 och ägna dagarna åt att åka runt i
tunnelbanan och station för station bocka av skådeplatserna i denna ryska bästsäljare.
Jag är normalt ganska sval inför framtidsscenarier med sf-inslag, males Gluchovskij
bryter ner mitt motstånd mot genren och drar mig med på en svindlande,
omtumlande färd genom Moskvas underjordiska tunnelsystem."
