Metro 2033--A Post-Apocalyptic Quest Novel
Genre: Sci-fi / Post-Apocalyptic / Horror
Humanity has been decimated by a nuclear explosion. Yes. It finally happened. Russian survivors of the blast live underground in the former metro stations and travel to each station through dark and dangerous tunnels.
Metro 2033 was so creepy in some parts that I was reluctant to be alone in the room while reading them.
A lot of the book reminded me of a typical fantasy quest novel, minus the wizards and swords. Instead of a quasi-medieval fantastical realm, we are in the post-apocalyptic near-future, where surviving humankind is doomed to live in the former metro system. But the basic plot is the same.
