Metro 2034 by Dmitry Glukhovsky, the sequel to Metro 2033, follows a new expedition through the metro and its many dangerous tunnels. Sebastopol, a station often attacked by monsters and bandits, is often requesting more ammunition and supplies, but communications are down. Every party of soldiers sent to investigate never returns. Luckily, a grizzled soldier takes up the task and requests the help of a story-teller named Homer.
This review will contain small spoilers for Metro 2033, but will be a spoiler-free review for Metro 2034 itself. Let’s get into it!
Metro 2033 by Dmitry Glukhovsky is best described as a surreal, post-apocalyptic adventure, centred around life beneath the ground in the metro tunnels after nuclear weapons devastated the planet with their destructive force and worse still, their lingering radiation. This is not a story of how or why the bombs dropped, but the exploration of one’s will to live in the face of many strange dangers that assault the body, mind and heart of the main character, Artyom.
Here is my spoiler-free review of Metro 2033 by Dmitry Glukhovsky.
The Tales of Redwall is a series written by Brian Jacques and was started in the late 80s. It is a medieval fantasy series where the characters are semi-anthropomorphic beings that follow a hierarchy similar to their counterparts in nature. There are several books in this series and today I will be reviewing the first; Redwall.
With that said, let’s start the review!
Here we have it, the first book review of the year and it’s already off to a great start! This week I read The Princess Bride by William Goldman, the same writer of the screenplay for the movie. I think I am like most when I say I had no clue that The Princess Bride was a book before a movie. Whether you have seen the movie or not, this book is a great weekend read.
Let’s get into the review!

With that said, this is a spoiler-free review as always, I hope you enjoy!
