Explanation of the Book:

The year is 2033. The world has been reduced to rubble. Humanity is nearly extinct. The half-destroyed cities have become uninhabitable through radiation. Beyond their boundaries, they say, lie endless burned-out deserts and the remains of splintered forests. Survivors still remember the past greatness of humankind. But the last remains of civilisation have already become a distant memory, the stuff of myth and legend. More than 20 years have passed since the last plane took off from the earth. Rusted railways lead into emptiness. The ether is void and the airwaves echo to a soulless howling where previously the frequencies were full of news from Tokyo, New York, Buenos Aires. Man has handed over stewardship of the earth to new life-forms. Mutated by radiation, they are better adapted to the new world. Man's time is over. A few score thousand survivors live on, not knowing whether they are the only ones left on earth. They live in the Moscow Metro - the biggest air-raid shelter ever built. It is humanity's last refuge. Stations have become mini-statelets, their people uniting around ideas, religions, water-filters - or the simple need to repulse an enemy incursion. It is a world without a tomorrow, with no room for dreams, plans, hopes. Feelings have given way to instinct - the most important of which is survival. Survival at any price. VDNKh is the northernmost inhabited station on its line. It was one of the Metro's best stations and still remains secure. But now a new and terrible threat has appeared. Artyom, a young man living in VDNKh, is given the task of penetrating to the heart of the Metro, to the legendary Polis, to alert everyone to the awful danger and to get help. He holds the future of his native station in his hands, the whole Metro - and maybe the whole of humanity.

Explanation of the Book:

Miejsce człowieka nie jest pod ziemią. Żyjecie w tunelach jak robaki! Tu nie ma dla nas jutra. Metro to cmentarz. Nie będziemy tu ludźmi. Nie stworzymy niczego nowego. Nie rozwiniemy się. Chorujemy tu. Wyradzamy się. Nie ma powietrza. Nie ma miejsca. Jest ciasno. Trzecia wojna światowa starła ludzkość z powierzchni Ziemi. Planeta opustoszała. Całe miasta obróciły się w proch i pył. Przestał istnieć transport, zamarła komunikacja. Radio milczy na wszystkich częstotliwościach. W Moskwie przeżyli tylko ci, którzy przy wtórze syren alarmowych zdążyli dobiec do bram metra. Tam, na głębokości dziesiątek metrów, na stacjach i w tunelach, ludzie próbują przeczekać koniec cywilizacji. W miejsce utraconego ogromnego świata stworzyli swój własny ułomny światek. Czepiają się życia i ani myślą się poddać. Pewnie marzą o powrocie na powierzchnię – kiedyś, kiedy obniży się poziom radiacji. I nie tracą nadziei na odnalezienie innych ocalałych… Metro 2035 kontynuuje historię Artema z pierwszego tomu kultowej serii. Na tę książkę miliony czekały przez całe dziesięć lat, a prawa do tłumaczenia wydawnictwa wykupiły na długo przed jej ukończeniem. Metro 2035 jest przy tym książką niezależną i również od niej można zacząć przygodę z cyklem Glukhovsky’ego, który podbił serca czytelników w Rosji i na całym świecie. * Zwyczajny i znajomy świat Metra postawiłem na głowie, tak więc tych, którzy czytali Metro 2033 czeka mnóstwo odkryć i niespodzianek. A tym, którzy swój kontakt z Metrem zaczynają od tej właśnie książki, oddaję sensacyjną, emocjonalną, mocną powieść – myślę, że nie pozwoli im się nudzić. Dmitry Glukhovsky

Explanation of the Book:

World War Three wiped out the humankind. The planet is empty now. Huge cities became dust and ashes. Railroads are being eaten by rust. Abandoned satellites hang lonely on the orbit. Radio is mute on all the frequencies. The only survivors of the last war were those who made it into the gates of the Metro, the subway system of Moscow city. It's there, hundreds of feet below the ground, in the vaults of what was constructed as the world's largest air-raids shelter that people try to outlive the end of the days. It's there that they created a new world for themselves. The stations of Metro became city-states, and its citizens, torn apart by religions and ideologies are fighting for the now scarce commodities: air, water, and space. This tiny underground world can only remind humans of an immense world they once were the masters of. It's been twenty years past Doomsday, and yet the survivors refuse to give up. The most stubborn of them keep cherishing a dream: when the radiation level from nuclear bombings subsides, they will be able to return to the surface and have the life their parents once had. But the most stubborn of the stubborn continues to search for other survivors in this huge emptiness that once was called Earth. His name is Artyom. He would give anything to lead his own people from the underground onto the surface. And he will. * * * METRO 2035 continues and terminates the story of Artyom, the hero of the original Metro 2033 book and the Metro video games. Millions of readers across the world have been waiting for this novel for the long ten years. For those who have been following Artyom's adventures from the very beginning, Metro 2035 will deliver the concluding powerful part of the saga, with the ultimate part of the puzzle that can't be found anywhere else. For the new readers, Metro 2035 will become an excellent introduction into this unique fiction universe that has millions of fans across the world. * * * Dmitry Glukhovsky's METRO novels have already sold millions of copies in 37 languages. They have also become a basis of cult video games 'Metro 2033' and 'Metro Last Light', and the film rights were optioned by a Hollywood studio. * * * Behind the tense plot and the dark ambience of Metro 2035, there's yet another level: that of social dystopia and political satire. Metro metaphorically paints a pitiless picture of today's Russia, that is being overcast again by the dark shadows of its gruesome past. Do Russians need freedom? Do they want a war? Can they survive without an enemy? Who's to blame and can anything be done about it? Eternal questions. Fresh answers.

Explanation of the Book:

Why had she rented her upstairs apartment to another doctor? Single mom Jill Beck knew the type, especially one as handsome as Adam Stone. The M.D. would stick it out in Blackwater Lake, Montana...until the first snowstorm. And then he'd leave everyone behind. But this time she wasn't getting involved. Yes, he thought Jill was one fine-looking landlady, but Adam knew romancing the town sweetheart wouldn't win him any points. Still, they could be friends and he could be the male influence her young son needed--no romantic strings involved. Well, perhaps he needed to check his temperature and be certain he hadn't misdiagnosed true love as just a simple case of friendship!

Explanation of the Book:

The superb and long-awaited sequel to the cult bestseller Metro 2033, the second volume in the Metro trilogy, Metro 2034 continues the story of survival and struggle that unfolds in the mazes of the Moscow subway after the World War Three. As the entire civilization was wiped out by atomic bombs and the surface of the planet is polluted with nuclear fallout, the only place suitable for man to live are shelters and bunkers, of which the largest is the subway system of Moscow, aka the Metro. The year is 2034. There's no hope for humans to once return to the surface of Earth, to repopulate the forsaken cities, and to become once again the masters of the world they used to be. So they rebuild a strange and grotesque civilization in the tunnels and at the stations of the subway. Stations become city-states that wage trade and war on each other. A fragile equilibrium is established. And then all can be ruined in matter of days. A new horrible threat looms that can eradicate the remains of humanity and end our era. It would take three unlikely heroes to face this menace... This is the first US edition of Metro 2034, containing black and white hip illustrations by Anton Grechko for each chapter. Translated from Russian by Andrew J. Bromfield, one of the top 5 world specialists.

Vivem no Metro de Moscovo, o maior abrigo contra ataques aéreos no planeta. É o último refúgio da humanidade. È um mundo sem amanhã, sem espaço para sonhos, planos ou esperanças.

Mas há uma nova e terrível ameaça. Artyom, um jovem que vive nessa estação, é incumbido de penetrar no coração do Metro e de viajar até à lendária estação conhecida por Pólis. O objectivo é alertar todos os habitantes do Metro para o perigo que se avizinha e, assim, obter apoios para a defesa da VDNKh. O futuro da sua estação está agora nas mãos de Artyom, tal como o futuro do Metro e da humanidade. Metro 2033 foi um êxito esmagador em toda a Europa, revelando um mundo claustrofóbico onde falta a esperança e o desespero domina.

Explanation of the Book:

A girl’s quest to find her father leads her to an extended family of magical fighting booksellers who police the mythical Old World of England when it intrudes on the modern world. From the bestselling master of teen fantasy, Garth Nix. In a slightly alternate London in 1983, Susan Arkshaw is looking for her father, a man she has never met. Crime boss Frank Thringley might be able to help her, but Susan doesn’t get time to ask Frank any questions before he is turned to dust by the prick of a silver hatpin in the hands of the outrageously attractive Merlin. Merlin is a young left-handed bookseller (one of the fighting ones), who with the right-handed booksellers (the intellectual ones), are an extended family of magical beings who police the mythic and legendary Old World when it intrudes on the modern world, in addition to running several bookshops. Susan’s search for her father begins with her mother’s possibly misremembered or misspelt surnames, a reading room ticket, and a silver cigarette case engraved with something that might be a coat of arms. Merlin has a quest of his own, to find the Old World entity who used ordinary criminals to kill his mother. As he and his sister, the right-handed bookseller Vivien, tread in the path of a botched or covered-up police investigation from years past, they find this quest strangely overlaps with Susan’s. Who or what was her father? Susan, Merlin, and Vivien must find out, as the Old World erupts dangerously into the New.

Explanation of the Book:

This volume offers an in-depth investigation of the role of new media in the political, social and cultural life in the region of Europe-Asia. By focusing on new media, which is understood primarily as internet-enabled networked social practice, the book puts forward a political and cultural redefinition of the region which is determined by the recognition of the diversity of new media uses in the countries included in the study. This book focuses on the period prior to the advent of ‘world internet revolutions’, and it registers the region at its pivotal moment—at the time of its entry into the post-broadcast era. Does the Internet aid democratisation or it conditioned by socio-political norms? Has the Internet changed politics or has it had to fit existing political structures? Has the use of digital technologies revolutionized election campaigns? How is hyperlinked society different from society prior to the advent of the web? How do ordinary people actually use the Internet. These and other pressing questions – crucial to understanding the post-socialist world – are investigated in the current volume. This book was published as a special issue of Europe-Asia Studies.

Explanation of the Book:

This collection explores global dystopic, grotesque and retold narratives of degeneration, ecological and economic ruin, dystopia, and inequality in contemporary fictions set in the urban space. Divided into three sections—Identities and Histories, Ruin and Residue, and Global Gothic—The New Urban Gothic explores our anxieties and preoccupation with social inequalities, precarity and the peripheral that are found in so many new fictions across various media. Focusing on non-canonical Gothic global cities, this distinctive collection discusses urban centres in England’s Black Country, Moscow, Detroit, Seoul, Hong Kong, Bangkok, Singapore, Dehli, Srinigar, Shanghai and Barcelona as well as cities of the imaginary, the digital and the animated. This book will appeal to anyone interested in the intersections of time, place, space and media in contemporary Gothic Studies. The New Urban Gothic casts reflections and shadows on the age of the Anthropocene.
