The silfen are really cool, thought the void trilogy wasn't up to the level of the other two arcs. The thing I really love about his books is the amount of detail out into the world everything is in.

My favourite from all of them has to be the chase to the star flyer on far away though.

It's a good one. I really got pulled into the world the author was trying to create. I highly recommend it.

Also, any good novels that are post-apocalyptic (I'm thinking nuclear war, not like zombie or virus)? Looking for a new read, and I love books like that.

I'm currently reading Gravity's Rainbow.

I like it, but it's a difficult read, it very stream of conscious in some ways... scenes just shift without any real clear indication and suddenly I'm reading about a giant blob taking over London?

Going to keep at it, everything about it says it's right up my alley. It's a worthwhile challenge.

Wait I misunderstood. No I wouldn't consider it a real classic It's honestly not that good. It's plodding in the way that many novels from that era are but it doesn't have that good of a payoff in my opinion.

>>568564171
This was a book? Is it good?
>>
>>568565047
Fuck yes, genious writing
>>
>>568593912
It's translation is either stilted or Russian as a language is stilted but either way the novel is stilted. It's also very Russian in it's outlook do not go in expecting happiness or cheer only dread, fear, and hopelessness.

It differs a lot from the game and for the better I find, there's no good ending in the novel for instance. If you have an interest in post apocalyptic fiction through a non American point of view or want to try to get a better sense of the conflicts in modern Russian society I'd recommend it.

the movie is so shit

>>
>>568594945
I don't think it really matters. The games really make it easier to envision the hell scape that is the metro but the novels have a better since of dread and hopelessness. The game is really pretty but the gameplay is janky.

>>568595072
That's cause it's a shit book. Pick up almost anything else posted in this thread and you'll have a better time.
>>
>>568595072
The beginning is slow, and nothing really explosive happens until the end of Part 1. From then on shit hits the fan and it is absolutely amazing, given you're not a Liberal, otherwise the book is pure Kryptonite.
