    My ordered copy of the Metro 2033 novel finally arrived two days ago. I've already read seven chapters and I'm loving it so far. I highly recommend it to... anyone who likes to read! :p Fans of the game or post-apocalyptic/atmospheric things will especially adore it.

    I agree!
    and while you'r at it, get the next book immediately after you've read the first one!
    (it's called "Metro 2034: the Defense of Sevastopolskaya", I think it's spelled) xD

    Damn, I'm a slow reader. I've only read three thirteen chapters so far. xD Well, I have been trying to keep myself from reading more than one chapter a day so I can enjoy the book for longer.

    Yes you're slow :D I readed about 60 pages a day with coffe and donuts :D
    I don't read books, but Metro 2033 is so awesome! Anyway, I'm little sad that he Metro 2034: Defense of Sevastopolska (right?) isn't about our young and brave Artyom... Cus, the next game will not be like the book... but I hope the Metro: Last Light will be awesome more or like the first game

    Yea, it was a little bit of a dissapointment that Artiom wasn't in that much.
    but hey, it was a pretty good story anyway :D

    the book was amazing, makes you think how much stuff they left out of the game.

    That's true, but it's always hard to transfer almost 500 pages of words onto some moving images (movies/games). With that said, I think 4A Games did a fantastic job.

    I've done that with a few books, reading till late in the morning, because it's just too good. I read the complete Narnia series in two days, just sitting all day reading. :)

    I'm almost through my 2nd, and it's just awesome. I kinda ran out of books, too. :) Guess I'll go book hunting at a 2nd-hand book store or rehaunt the library one of these days. Any suggestions?

    (I'll go the library, and someone will be like "Look, a librarian", and I'll spin around screaming "Run! Run for your lives!' or "Just look them right in the eyes, everyone!" and everyone is looking at me like a dangerous crim or something... :D)

    Well, I have strange tastes: I've read a ton of Stephen King, but I also like classics like Somerset Maughum and late 19th century humour (Three Men in a Boat, Nonsense Novels). But I'm also keen on fantasy novels (Dark Tower by Stephen King). But lately I haven't really found anything new or different. I'm open to anything, but something like Metro would be very epic. :) Post-Apocalyptic books are pretty interesting. One of my favorites is A Canticle for Leibowitz.

    Try reading the northern lights by phillip pullman
    basically the golden compass, i read it about 10 years ago, when i was like 8
    im not sure how appealing it would be to an older audience though
