I am currently reading Metro 2033 (no I haven't played the game - and I probably won't).
I have to say that, up to this point, I am a little disappointed and bored. The tour of the post apocalyptic metro is atmospheric enough but it seems to ramble a bit while nothing of what happens seems to have any real impact.
I'm at the part where Artyom was sentenced to death by the nazis because he finally killed someone, after itching to do so for half of the book. And just as I though that that would be the turning point of the story, he is saved by a deus ex machina and seems to just put the unfortunate incident behind him and continue on his merry way
I just hope that the plot will kick in soon and all the little things will finally come together and show that they had some reason for happening other than to make me feel that I'm not reading a tourist guide written by a character created by Stephen King.
