Before Dmitri Whatshisface published the book he had it posted online for people to read for free. I was wondering if it (or something like it) was still online to read. I found a website some time ago with the first 3 chapters translated and I read them; the book is fantastic and I really wanna continue it. Halp! 
 
And buying it from Amazon.com really isn't an option because my mom doesn't trust the website.

Amazon has had a nice history of issues

Really? Enough to make someone stay away from it entirely? If you can't trust Amazon, who can you trust? : P

@natetodamax:
Read?? Outrageous!
 
No, seriously, I'm guessing you already have checked out the main page for the book? On the internetz of course... Cause last time I've heard talk about the book being published online for free it was to be found on the home page. But the duration of the "free read" might only have been avalible in the beginning when the book was sort of... unpopular and newly released. I mean, it has sold a lot of copies since its release, and I'm guessing the rights of distributing the material is owned by what ever company is publishing the book now. My guess, the free read is over, pal...

I don't know about reading the book online, but you can buy it here.

I see the thread is dead, but I'll make a post if anyone finds this thread, perhaps through google like I did. 
 
Considering how many sources tell that it is available on their website, and how thoroughly I've searched it, I assume that the only version available online is the russian version, and not the english. The same goes for metro 2034, I presume. Note that these are only assumptions since I searched the site using google translater, and it refused to translate pictures (obviously) with text. : / 
 
It took quite a while for the local library to get 2033, so I doubt I will see 2034 any time soon : (

For whatever reason, cultural or etc., english versions of texts are rarely uploaded to the internet, whereas Russian ones almost always are. *shrug*, I'd say you're out of luck mate. It's a pretty cool read.

Problem solved. Learn Russian.

I wonder if Nate started trusting Amazon at some point in the last 3 years since this was written.

Find out next time, on The Forums.

I once tried ordering something from the co.uk portal of Amazon and waited a whole week for them to tell me my package was lost. Then they resent it, LOST IT AGAIN (or so they say) and after a third week I got back my money. Honestly now I avoid buying anything from there.
