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

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

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
