"
Estamos no ano 2033. O mundo foi reduzido a escombros. A humanidade foi quase extinta. Mas alguns milhares de pessoas sobreviveram, sem saberem, no entanto, se serão os únicos habitantes da Terra. Vivem no Metro de Moscovo, o maior abrigo contra ataques aéreos no planeta. É o último refúgio da humanidade. É um mundo sem amanhã, sem espaço para sonhos, planos ou esperanças. Aí o sentimento deu lugar ao instinto - e o mais importante é a sobrevivência. A qualquer preço. VDNKh é uma estação habitada, que se situa na extremidade norte da linha e ainda é considerada segura. Mas há uma nova e terrível ameaça. Artyom, um jovem que vive nessa estação, é incumbido de penetrar no coração do Metro e de viajar até à lendária estação conhecida por Pólis. O objectivo é alertar todos os habitantes do Metro para o perigo que se avizinha e, assim, obter apoios para a defesa da VDNKh. O futuro da sua estação natal está agora nas mãos de Artyom, tal como o futuro do Metro e da humanidade.""

Uma Beleza Grande e Terrível é o tipo de livro que não conseguimos largar...É uma vasta tapeçaria de saias rodadas, de sombras dançantes e de coisas que se escondem na escuridão. É um retrato vivo da época vitoriana, altura em que as raparigas eram educadas para serem as esposas de homens ricos... E é a história de uma rapariga que viu um caminho diferente.
