    I read Agatha Christie's 'The Hollow', HG Wells' 'The Time Machine', and Cyril Hare's 'An English Murder' on holiday. Now it's back to the serious stuff.

    Just about to start Metro 2033 by Dmitry Glukhovsky

    In 2013, a nuclear war occurred, forcing a large amount of Moscow's surviving population to relocate to underground metro stations in search of refuge. Eventually, the communities settled in the underground train stations developed into independent states. Soon, factions emerged, ranging from the independent peacekeepers the "Rangers of the Order", to the communist "Red Line" faction and the fascist "Fourth Reich", to the more powerful factions such as "Polis", which contained the greatest military power and the most knowledge of the past, and the "Hanza" regime, which controlled the main ring of metro stations by its sheer economic power. As these groups began to evolve, the Red Line and the Fourth Reich quickly entered a state of war, as both sought to destroy the other. As the war raged, the stations who refused to join either side were either demolished by the factions, merged into the Hanza regime, raided by criminal bandits, or formed their own independent states. Other stations were outright destroyed by animals, mutated by the nuclear fallout. While most of the stations were controlled by the 3 main factions, some stations formed an independent alliances, including the
    station VDNKh ("Exhibition"). Within that station, the events of Metro 2033 unfold

    Hi Geoff
    The book has an excellent reputation and should be a great read.
    Probably make a start today but the next week or so could be hit and miss.
    Though I will be travelling for work soon and could be my best option to get a good start and maybe finish it.

    I like a good book. I pop in the local charity shops for mine and buy just about any novels apart from romances. I grab an armful without reading the backs or studying the fronts too much and end up with a pot luck selection.
