What format? I've been trying to find a Kindle version, since I keep forgetting to actually buy this book when I'm in Russia. Like you, it's been on my reading list so let's give 'er a go.

I found it on the iBooks app. I’m just starting to read it today. I got the worst case of the flu which left me drained, now recovering and able to start doing something that requires some mental energy.

I hope to be finished with Metro 2033 by the end of this week. Where are we suppose to post discussions about it? In this thread or a different one?

I've not been active in this thread so I'm not sure. If two threads are needed, that's perfectly fine too!

Unfortunately, that means a little bit of hassle in the process of moving over, my apologies for that. Here's the link:

https://forum.language-learners.org/vie ... 21&t=10009

I hope everyone can just go over there and follow it straight away, so you get notified when people start posting. ...

Since Mista has started the new thread, I am happy to end this one. I have edited the first post to more accurately reflect the nature of this thread as being the FORMER book club thread. Please close the thread in order to avoid confusion.
