Am I the only person who dropped this because they felt uncomfortable with the secondary couple? Otherwise, I would definitely rate this story highly, with good writing and an interesting story and I like how the main couple is set up. I wish I could've kept reading it.

... more>>

Zhang Min and Jue Ming. Bear in mind my judgement is based only on the first 10 chapters, which paint quite a bad picture for me. Am I really the only one bothered by this relationship? Seriously? Am I the crazy one? Age gap of 28 and 15, with the minor (apparently) being a tad mentally challenged. Sorry, but I have a bottom line.


Meng Feng said, ” That kid is your... hey? Brother, this doesn’t look like father and son.”

Zhang Min smiled awkwardly. “What you say is what it is.”


Zhang Min said he was fifteen years old, but he looked thirteen or fourteen. His mind was even more like that of a ten year old.


So, just me? Am I missing some crucial details or what? I don't get why this doesn't bother anyone else.

If you can read Chinese or are all right with MTLing, ignore the low rating and give this a go. I love this author and the MC and ML are such a power couple, MC largely brains and ML largely brawns (like QWFOD) and they're truly a power couple. They are also ex-boyfriends at the beginning of the novel, a trope I love, and its so wonderful to see them get back together again, especially since they never stopping caring about the other person.

The anime adaption is a can watch... more>> or can skip, it removed all traces of homosexuality to comply with China's laws. <<less

This story is written with such incredible attention to detail. So much detail, in fact, that I can't deny getting impatient while reading this; in any case, I have serious respect for the author. He raises and answers many scientific, political, and even philosophical questions. I was initially drawn in by the plot, but the characterization was certainly no less phenomenal.

With the zombie apocalypse, there's also the collapse of morality - or at least, the need to redefine morality and the value of life. I don't think any of us... more>> could deny the selfish instinct within us, especially in a life or death situation: What does it matter if all these other nameless people die, as long as my loved ones and I are safe? I'd imagine that it's easy to become numb in an environment where people, including your loved ones, are dying in such grotesque ways. But the author does a great job of expanding beyond this viewpoint.

To some extent, I think it's tied to the question: Is humankind worth saving? At the risk of spoiling anything, I agree that the answer lies in the fact that each human is an individual. And each sacrifice was made by an individual: someone who lived like you and I, someone who loved, and someone who was loved. (In any case, I hope my professors will be proud of what little I've obtained from the only philosophy class I have ever taken / will ever take.)

This story also embraces the complexity of human relationships. For one, we get a really clear picture of how Liu Yan's worldview shifts over the course of the novel (see above). We also get to see at least a half dozen different leaders, each of them with different dispositions and beliefs, as well as the importance of authority figures. We see romance, friendship, comradeship, and an all-embracing love for humankind. (Editing this to add that the romance between the main characters is done very, very well. It's so realistic that it almost feels bittersweet, especially when you consider where they would be if the zombie apocalypse hadn't happened.)

I don't usually read books with horror elements, and this is the only zombie apocalypse book I've ever read. It did take me almost a month to finish (I do feel like the pacing dropped a bit near the end). Anyway, I've said way too much and I feel like I still have more to say... This is the first book I've read by 非天夜翔, and I must say that I'm thoroughly impressed. <<less

This is one of the best novels I have read, even among the top among the apocalyps genre.

I originally came here because of her donghua ending which made me want to say "Meng Feng you bastard!" so I prefer to continue reading the story even if it has to be MTL. For 73 chapters this story has a solid plot that feels like more than 100 chapters.

Many said Liu Yan was too dominant but actually he wasn't, he should only soak Meng Feng's impuls. They were a pair that complemented... more>> each other and were equally strong.


in my opinion there are 3 arcs for this novel, namely the first bow to adapt to donghua. The second bow is the long night name for the zombie elimination plan. This ends with the sacrifice of one of the characters that had existed in the early chapters. If you read nirvana rebirth there are some things that are similar no matter how they come from the same author


For Zhang Min and Jue Ming


I don't know how to explain it but Jue Ming I don't think he's really human. Even though the psychologist said that it was more like a double personality where before he had amnesia his name was Dai Xing. He was supposed to be on the beach but because of some things the earth consciousness did make him end up having amnesia and was left in the valley until he was adopted by ZM, before finally his memory. Will return when the earth crews communicate with him towards the final chapter. So is it the thread of the earth or is it really double multiplicity?

and the first person to confess his love was JM so I don't think it's non-con or dub-con.


and lastly if you might often see MC who is the holy father here the holy father is clearly ML, he might be a bit dumb to leave LY when he goes on duty but to save thousands of lives it makes sense. But calm LY will come to him even if it has to threaten the father-in-law by destroying the entire base, lmao

father-in-law is not real tr*sh he can still be saved, I even like his personality.

emotional moments


There are several emotional moments such as during the attack of the octopus where LY might become a zombie, MF who leaves because it is infected with the last form of the virus that ends with LY will still follow it even though they have to die together, calmly they will survive


it's also a very good novel, if you've ever read Thrive in Catastrophe that's fine too. MC is both a technician, of course with MC TiC they are more familiar with the X virus, while in this novel there is another party who is tasked with making antibodies.

There are three extra with lots of s*x scenes during the very hot novel. And extra where they first confess their love and the first time they commit an act

I'm sorry I wrote too long, I like it too much mtl for this novel is also easy if you want to try it. I haven't used a spoiler yet so if the spoiler isn't so sorry, and I know my grammar is bad I'm really sorry for that because English isn't even my first or second language. Thank you <<less

Pretty good! I love the relationship between the MC and ML.

As for the 2nd couple, I’m not so sure why people don’t like them maybe because

they are father x son (adopted, unrelated) plus 13 years age difference. Those don’t really bother me but what bothers me about the second couple is that the father really treats the son as a son tho he has romantic feelings for him, they’re in love but their interaction is just kinda sketchy I guess

This started off as like a trope-y BL apocalypse novel bit it gets so much better. The character development is vibrant and there are so many moments where I laughed and cried with the characters. Even though it's only 73 chapters, the heaviness and unfolding of the story is not cut short at any point. Just wow. Wish that I could do 10/5 because this novel really surpassed all I could ever hope for.

I'm not far into the novel but so far it's fine, following the standard zombie apocalypse trope. A 4 star rating might be generous, but this early into the story I am optimistic until proven otherwise, especially because I have liked a couple other novels this author has written (wow is it a long list, especially when I found out he has so many other pen names!). I have some hopes that the characters previous life history (jobs and education) will be relevant and not just used for glossing... more>> over plot development *crossing fingers*. There are some negatives with the writing though. There are strange mini-time skips where people suddenly do something that unless they moved (eg got out of a car, walked some distance, etc) it would not be possible. It's a little disorienting, but if you are just willing to roll with it you'll follow what's happening. The character interactions are not realistic, but it's in a similar way to a lot of other novels (have you ever met a 15 year old kid that will tolerate being treated like a 9 year old? Not knowing the story, perhaps there is a reason they chose 15 so specifically? *cough look at the tags cough*) There are quite a few of these little things. I think I must be getting desensitized to this type of inconsistency... Also a friendly tip: please people, don't bring the almost-turned-zombie people with you. It's a really really bad idea. <<less

omg.. I only just started this book, but it feels like I am there with them... This is the first apocalyptic book that made me feel that way.. Really freaking good... I am always multitasking, having my TTS engine read to me while I work, but I am finding it really hard to do that with this novel, having to stop what I am doing because I am so immersed in the story.. And I feel like I am about to be in the Apocalypse.. I keep thinking about possible... more>> scenarios in real life and what I would do, like mental preparation! lol!! This novel is that good, and the recent pandemic just reinforces the possibilities and imagination! <<less

So far I’ve rated it 4 cuz lol the smut was rly hot!! Though I’m not quite sure yet how the story building will venture on. Will they suddenly acquire superhuman powers or what not. So far there’s no indication of that. The side-couple’s romance and story line seems more interesting than the main couple imo. I just feel like the MC shu is too queenly-ish bordering on annoying. I get that the author wanna establish him as a power character with his own opinions but crashing the ML’s parade... more>> over and over just felt like him being unnecessarily bitter. He just seems like making the ML look like such a wimp. We’ll see in the coming chaps if this will change. <<less

It's so good ! But I wish the second couple wasn't there.... of course that's just my opinion but srsly this novel is so good, it makes you actually think you are there experiencing the plot line along with the other characters as if you aren't even reading this in your bedroom.

I hope you try it out ! And if the second couple triggers you or you feel uncomfortable..... just skip the part (like I did) cuz this novel is that good that it deserves to be read even if....... more>> it's not perfect <<less

My all time favourite of zombie apocalypse novel. I must admit the second pairing creeps me out. Nevertheless, it's still an okay-ish novel. The part when we learn more about why the apocalypse happened is the most exciting part. Unfortunately, the donghua can't capture the suspense of the novel and it rlly make it feels bland.

The donghua (15 eps) starts with the team going to the fallen survivor base to get some weapons. IMO, it's better to read the novel than watching the donghua.
