About the Author
Dmitry Glukhovsky is a Russian writer and journalist. His first novel, METRO 2033, a post-nuclear dystopia set in the Moscow subway, the world's biggest bomb shelter, was written as an online interactive experiment and published on his own website as a free project in 2002, then completed in 2004. Several years later, the novel came out as a printed book and became a success. It has already sold close to 600.000 copies in Russia alone and is translated into 35 languages. It saw a success across Europe, particularly in Germany, Sweden and Poland. Millions have read the free text of the novel on its official webiste. The full text is still available in open access. The film rights were purchased by MGM studios in Hollywood. Glukhovsky's following books, Metro 2034, Sumerki and The Russian Anti-Popular Tales have also been published online and become an international success. Dmitry Glukhovsky is also known as one of the global pioneers of the transmedia storytelling. His 'Metro' saga is being told across his own novels 'Metro 2033' and 'Metro 2034', the two video games inspired by the books and continuing their storyline - 'Metro 2033' and 'Metro: Last Light', as well as novels written by other authors within and for 'The Universe of Metro 2033' international book franchise (40 books published by October 2013). Dmitry's most recent novel, a dystopia named 'Future', Dmitry Glukhovsky first published in a social network, Russia's leading 'VK.com'. Chapters of the novel were attached as free-download PDF documents, and were accompanied by a free-to-listen original soundtrack and illustrations; within few months, the page of 'Future' gathered over 300 000 subscribers. As a roving reporter for Russia Today and EuroNews, he traveled from Morocco and Guatemala to Iceland and Japan. He was deep in Chernobyl area to film the destroyed nuclear reactor, watched Russian rockets' launch at Baykonur, reported Israel's standoff with Hezbollah under the missiles in Kiryat-Shmona and made the world's first live report from the North Pole. Apart of his native Russian, Glukhovsky fluently speaks English, French, German, Hebrew and Spanish.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The letter combination "ft" is consistently dropped from words like lift. Compare the preview for the print version of the book and the kindle version. In the Kindle version the narrator refers to a "li". In the print version it is lift.
Verdict: Unreadable until corrected.
Also, Amazon would not let me write a review until I clicked on how I would describe the plot of the book. Twenty pages in, I have no idea.

This book will indeed remind you of 1984, but with a twist. Even if it does, this book is excellent.Read more
