Metro 2033 - Dmitry Glukhovsky, M. David Drevs, Дмитрий Глуховский Though this book seems too long and repetitive at times, it stayed with me for a long time. So, as a result, I included it on my 'favorites' shelf.

Imagine a post-nuclear apocalypse Moscow, where mankind survives by living in the vast and legendary underground metro system of the city. And it is considered dangerous even to go 500 m from your settlement in the dark tunnels. Artyom, a young man living in VDNKh (northernmost inhabited station), must go to the center of the Moscow line (Polis) to warn everyone about the new danger (the infiltration of black creatures - who become so by radiation on the surface). We follow the journey of Artyom in the underground metro system. As I said earlier, the book is slow sometimes, but it is unique.

And the end was more meaningful than I expected it to be.
