If dystopian futures are your thing, then you may want to try Dmitry Glukhovsky's novel 'Metro 2033'.

Set in the year 2033 (obviously) it follows the story of Artyom, a young man living in the post-apocalyptic Moscow Metro underground train system. The above world being impossible to live on due to an atomic war some 20 years previously.

A thoroughly enjoyable and compelling read, I recommend it to anyone.

(It has been made into a video game and there are talks about securing the film rights with 'Hollywood-based' studios.)
