Ruins stretched across the landscape in the apocalypse after the nuclear war.

If you accidentally survived on the wasteland, then you must be ready to face the endless hunger, ceaseless dangers, the mad zombies at night, and the peculiar mutant creatures that are the aftermaths of the constant radiation.

But for Jiang Chen, this place was heaven.

Mansions stood tall, luxurious cars parked on the street, high tech products and gold abandoned everywhere.

What? You were the president of a game development company before the war? You were responsible for the development of the 3D virtual reality online multiplayer game? Well, that’s great, why don’t you come work for me. The salary is two pieces of bread a day.

iPhone? Ultra thin design? Don’t you see that the phone I invented are thinner than condoms?

Aircraft carrier? Fighter jets? Oh, I have those things as well, but they are designed for space combat.

Watch the story of Jiang Chen, who possessed the ability to travel through space and time, as he witness the creation of an empire stretched across space and time..

I disagree with the other reviewers. First, it doesn't have any world-building at all.This post apocalyptic world is simply ripped off from games and other post-apocalyptic/scifi stories. Second, it's not even fun as a light read because you'll probably just skim over several paragraphs of pointless conversations or descriptions that are tedious and condescending. It's as if the author thinks the reader is so incredibly stupid, and has no imagination that they needed to explicitly describe things, events or every single irrelevant action such as closing a door in the... more>> story. I seriously could not understand why people like this stupid novel. But then again, stupid people read stupid things. There is so much racist/supremacist undertone in this novel that serves nothing more than self-gratifying fantasies the author has. I just have to wonder if the author was educated at all, or have ever experienced socializing with people from another race/country. There was a lot of narrow-minded thinking and generalization in this novel that I personally do not find acceptable at all.

I personally didn't find any fulfilment or satisfaction at all in reading the chapters. The conversations feel clunky/unnatural, the pace was tedious, and everything that's happening feel as if they are inconsequential in the end (like it didn't matter anyway if this and that happened, filler chapters). because all it amounts to is just to prolong the story. It is garbage/trash read. Something you read in the toilet just to pass the time. It doesn't make you think or even imagine. It's formula is to intrigue the reader, and sandwich useless, unnecessary things between that and the story progress. Seriously, it's as if the author just writes all the crap he/she can come up with just to stall the progress of the plot. <<less

I really wanted to like this, but just couldn't.

The characters are just too stupid. The plot doesn't really make much sense either, too much is left undescribed, but it's mainly the characters that kill it.

The MC time travels to a parallel universe (alternate Earth in 2190) where a global nuclear war happened. The first time he time travels, he should have figured some things out. Like the fact that the world is now a hell-hole and there are zombies everywhere and everyone is starving, right?

What would a normal MC be like in this situation. Maybe avoid people, kill anyone suspicious or threatening, etc? Perhaps try to stay hidden and protect himself from the radiation and diseases?

Not for our MC. He travels the radioactive landscape without any protection nor realizing the hazards of radiation despite KNOWING a global nuclear war just happened from reading the newspapers. Doesn't seem to be much worried about viruses or diseases from the zombies either. I mean, zombies? pfft. Mentioned as an aside in a single sentence. "I crossed the zombie infested landscape". Never mentioned again in first 5 chapters.

He finds a mansion in the hellscape. Now, what would a normal person do. In a land full of zombies, probably be on guard against zombies, right? If not zombies then people with guns, since people are not likely to be very welcoming in this kind of environment, right?

Nope. Our MC goes in without any protection, finds a starving girl AND FEEDS HER HIS FOOD, ONLY FOR HER TO THEN POINT A GUN AT HIM AND STRAP HIM TO A CHAIR. Yes, in a zombie infested post-apocalyptic world, he finds a mansion and a girl inside and starts feeding her food because she's pretty and he wants to fug. This is literally written in the story I'm not making anything up.

More ridiculous shit is yet to come. After being strapped to the chair, he then makes up some bullshit explanation about wanting technology AND SHE BELIEVES HIM AND LETS HIM FREE EVEN THOUGH FOOD IS THE MOST VALUABLE THING IN THE WORLD.

Then they go find a bank and he PAYS HER WITH HIS FOOD FOR HER TO BE HIS BODYGUARD AND TO ROB A BANK OF GOLD FOR HIM. Food that she could have just taken from him, with the only explanation being that she is "kind hearted". He never thinks about killing her (person who just pointed a gun at him and tied him up with rope) only about her breast size and how much he wants to fug. Yes the characters and explanations really are just that stupid. It only gets worse from that point onwards.

Another amazing novel from Qidian with decent world-building and plenty of fun.

The novel is about Jiang Chen who wants to achieve what every ordinary human wants to achieve: a high standard of life. Sadly he was laid-off from his job but as the luck would have it he got the ability to travel through time and space. He travels to a post-apocalyptic world, and exchanges food and basic needs with things that he needs in his own world (gold, technology stuff, etc). In a way it's similar to... more>> Monster Factory (here protagonist uses people instead of monsters).

The adventures are ridiculous and fun as you would be expect from a Chinese novel with an apocalyptic setting. The author has done plenty of thinking and it's a good light read. <<less

Has some interesting psychological and science fiction themes if you can get past:

Some inconsistencies and plot holes; i.e. the main character's age erratically changing 5+ times

Nationalism and racism (particularly against philippines and japan)

Exaggeration and suspension of belief

Kinda too early to say for certain, but I'm hoping that this is going to be as good as it seems. For the most part, the theme is very similar to the world of the "Fallout" series... Except it's in China. I wasn't that sure at first, but the moment the word 'Deathclaw' was thrown in, I knew that they weren't even trying to pretend like it wasn't related rofl.

I honestly don't care about copyright issues like that though. I mean, HTK is still one of my favorites, though it... more>> updates slowly. Speaking of updates, I wonder what the translation speed is going to be like for this series? Anyway, that's enough reviewing from me lmao. Read it if you want to, or don't, it's not my story... So it's really not my problem :P. <<less

Seems like a fun "what if" sci-fi, post-apoc adventure with RPG elements and a protagonist who isn't some sort of murder-hobo or LN cardboard cut-out. You will probably find the story's universe very familiar after a few chapters, but hey, it works. I usually cannot stand this sort of "inspiration" at all but the author puts in effort to make it feel original, so it gets a pass from me.

Pacing is comfortable, too, not much in the way of info-dumps or word-count padding filler. Give it a try!

This apocalyptic world borrows many elements from Fallout, it could almost if someone stretched the term, a original crossover fanatic with fallout world. That being said I think it is a strength of the story and works really well, and the elements borrowed are expanded upon to add more to the world. Only 12 chapters read so far but a promising start.

The story is an interesting one, the chapters really flow together with a fluid pace. There are certainly questions waiting to be answered, like just how and why he got the time and space travel (random chance? crazy theory where he sent it to himself in the past? just a plot device? Time will tell). Granted we are only 10 chapters in so its understandable there hasn't been enough time or developments to really understand everything.

The main character adapts to the situation going on in the parallel future world... more>> fairly easily I feel, but I suppose that is normal since this is in the Xuanhuan genre, which is perfectly fine. I just feel like he accepted the way things work in that world a bit too easily given he is originally from a peaceful world where human life is valued much more, and everything is far less dangerous. He doesn't go murder happy, arrogant, or power crazy. Just kind of accepts it? Somewhat unwillingly, but a bit too easily I feel, because I think it has all been in the span of days that he came to adapt to it.

Anyways, all in all, I highly recommend this series because of its interesting premise. I always enjoy the concept of a good time travel story, or having future and otherwise things like advanced tech be used in battles against the cultures not as advanced. Although there has not been much action yet, I liked what I saw, did a good job describing things for you to paint a mental picture without being overly detailed. So I look forward to much more of this series!

Small spoiler footnotes below:

Am I the only one surprised at the coincidences being lined up here? Like how the Zombies were created by the T-Virus which was actually from an attempt of "project revitalization" to save the world? Or that there are Deathclaws that I think might be remarkably similar to the ones in the Fallout Universe? I don't know enough of the Resident Evil lore, but I love the way these things are put into the story, and somewhat from other series I know. Though i find myself wondering if the creators of those respective concepts are okay with these coincidences. I do like how they have their own unique circumstances and ecosystem though. the Zombies feel more like plants with how they apparently get energy through photosynthesis or something? They live off the sun basically. Deathclaws are apparently predatory mutants that eat other lesser mutants, zombies, among anything else below them it seems.

This novel was great. Well it's my first time to give a review, so i didn't know what to write.

But i think this novel worth your time. A story with time travel like skill/machine, post apocalyptic like world with some past about our MC.
I like this novel.

Grammar: 3.5/5

Story: 3.5/5

Writing: 3.5/5

(Update as of Chapter 22: The spoiler bellow is more of a rant than anything.)

I hate how the MC was slightly portrayed as a filial son, yet as soon as he gets back he busts all his money without thinking about his parents. Honestly, the author either forgot that he placed that setting for the MC or he just doesn't care. Either way, the MC didn't send a single cent to his family. He just goes and buys the most expensive shit he can, goes on a vacation and is trying to spend everything as fast as he can. No future planning, no real thoughts about his family, and no indication that he would invest or save money to make things easier in the future. He's in a position where his life in his world and his life in the apocalyptic world depends on him being able to procure supplies, yet he can't even stock up on supplies, secure a location to hold said supplies, nor even make life easier on both sides. The Mc is an idiot.


First, I must admit I am a zombie fanatic, so my views may be biased in regards to this light novel.

The grammar is about standard, with instances of awkward wording and phrasing. Though they do not detract much from the story they do cause a bit of word flow stumbling. The story isn't all that unique, but it does a rather nice job of presenting itself in an exciting fashion with a slightly deeper than the skin look into emotional states. The writing, while not stellar is more than enough to keep you wanting more.

All in all, I am enjoying this series and will continue to follow it closely.

(On a side note: The themes found in this story largely correlate to themes found in Fallout 3, Fallout New Vegas, and a few other games. I like to think of this as the Asian Fallout, showing you what is happening in post-apocalyptic China as opposed to the US where the games take place.) <<less
