Doomsday Wonderland

Description

“I think… my boyfriend is trying to kill me,” Lin Sanjiu muttered.

As she thought about that rich, handsome, and gentle boyfriend of hers, she could not help but tremble all over.

At the present, someone close to her had personally raised the curtains to an apocalyptic hell, and slowly, it was creeping up to her.

—-

What if earth devolved into a apocalyptic hellhole? What if you found out you not only have to survive just one apocalyptic event but have to struggle through multiple worlds with different end-world scenarios? And you get to meet more superpowered crazies than you can imagine!

Presenting the worst nightmare that your weird doomsday prepper neighbour with a bunker full of canned beans could have, Doomsday Wonderland is a novel filled with subverted tropes, non-OP characters and a female friendly label which offends all politically correct fanatics.

As ‘lucky’ humans evolved to posthumans with abilities to adapt to the New World or mutate into disgusting duoluozhongs to survive, follow Lin Sanjiu as she struggle through the multiple challenges to just live one more day… and make sense of this New World that will no longer be the same.

Hi, I am the translator for this novel. Of course I will rate it five. I have been busy so I couldn't get the team to add more to this page. I just want to say that I have read many mangas and novels and this web novel really has a outstanding plot with many interesting scenarios and characters! That was why I wanted to translate it very badly. This is the sort of story that you will just grow to love more and more as it unfolds. Give it... more>> a chance! <<less

As soon as I opened the first chapter on a whim, I was sucked into the story. This is an intense apocalyptic-survival story with a resourceful female main character.

Only 25 chapters were released at the time of this review, but so far it looks very promising.

Summary:

    • For days, Lin Sanjiu has had the foreboding feeling that her too-perfect boyfriend is planning to kill her. On the eave of what will soon be revealed as the start of a disastrous heat wave, her suspicions become a deadly reality. Lin Sanjiu is suddenly and brutally forced into a world in which the apocalypse is nigh, all normal humans will perish, and the few survivors gain abilities or become hideous, man-eating monsters. Even worse, she learns that in a few months she'll be transported into a parallel world that's also going through an apocalypse, and this process will continue again, and again... assuming she lives that long.
First thoughts:

    • This is an exciting read full of suspense, danger, and mystery. The pacing is quick and action-packed, and the writing is excellent. The author doesn't bother to make the apocalypse look "pretty" -- it is filled with terror and rotting corpses. For those who are worried, I didn't find this story too scary -- it's intense, suspenseful, and a bit creepy, but with a healthy dash of fantasy and special powers.
    • Overall, I highly recommend you try it. The story seems to be headed in a very promising direction, the heroine is likeable, and the plot is pretty unique here on NovelUpdates. I'll be following it closely!
Translation:

    • The English and grammar are great. The translators are good at capturing the right feeling and scenery, especially the creepy suspenseful moments.
    • The chapters are a good length, easy to read, and keep you eager for more.
    • New chapters are released frequently, almost every day.

It starts off great, like a real novel you know? That's why idiots are rating this 1 star because they want standard xianxia, or infinity, or wish fullfilment. The MC is heading from a bad situation to worse all the time, that's all I can say without spoiling. What got me to drop it is that sometimes characters are smart and sometimes horror movie stupid, also I'm pretty sure there are plot holes, nothing significant though. In the latest chaps it turned out to be like One Piece, you know... more>> everbody scrambling and fighting 1 on 1 vs funky opponents, that was it for me. Oh and the translation might be slightly off because sometimes it's confusing, like what did I just read, who did what? Who said what? When did this character appear and when did the scene change? I'm a bit picky for NU standards so this novel will be great for most of you, since it is actually better than most NU novels. <<less

There is no character building, every character is there to glorify the MC. The two characters (one) who survived this horror before are useless while the newbie MC is the one carrying them with her.

The events building is not done well.

The story is somehow irritating.

All in all, I'd give it one star.

Meh.

I was entertained enough to binge read it up to 134.

Here's MY reasons for reading all day long. May not be yours, but may help others.

  • The MC doesn't start off super op. She has to work here way towards it, and BARELY by the 120's does she start seeing more power ups. Overall her growth rate is pretty easy and linear. The writer does enough plotting that I'm not left wondering too much about plot vs armour. So if you like MC who struggle a bit before growing, this maybe your kind of story.
  • The genre is transdimensional hopping like the Sliders from the sci-fi series or Terror Infinity story. MC is JUST starting to do dimensional traveling as of 130s. So... it's not like every couple of chapters. I figure author does a few dozen chapters as one arc and then another dozen as another. And so on. Pretty much like how other online writers do it. I like it, the current arc of the 130's is pretty harsh. Just a warning.
  • Supporting side characters do get screen time. Some may even be good enough to get a best supporting actor award with how much details they are given. Others maybe not so much. But overall I got enough that I could see myself hanging out with some of them or AVOIDING some....
  • btw. NO romance. tag is kind of misleading. So don't fall for it.
  • Good female lead MC. I can easily see her hanging out with Jessica Jones from Netflix, Black Widow and maybe Wonder Woman. She's confident. Sure and not just a pretty face or t&a. (Ok. Maybe not as pretty as those gals, but you get what I mean) She isn't a perfect Mary Sue OP type, but a character that grows stronger over time and overcomes a majority of her obstacles with her wit more than her brawns or boobs.
Overall, if these points agree with you, give it a read. You may be surprised like me and find yourself binging.

Edit: Might update the review later if it gets any better.

The best way to describe this novel would be exceptionally average. Other than the first 2 or 3 chapters where the characters are given some spotlight, they have very little depth and are pretty bland with no real personality. On the other hand, they don't have any annoying garbage cliches either.

The grammar and writing is actually pretty good. Other than a few really dumb mistakes every now and then, I'd say that this is probably this novel's strongest point.

The story... more>> is not bad but certainly not great either. There's a few random things thrown in for no reason like stat points which we see a few times early on and then not at all and some other seemingly arbitrary events like pocket dimensions. Minor spoiler:

Spoiler

The fact that all worlds become apocalyptic for no reason and people hop worlds every 14 months is also pretty random. They might explain why this happens later, but for now it just feels like it's thrown there because the author thought it would be a cool setup but didn't think it through.

[collapse]

Honestly, the story feels kind of discontinuous in the sense that one thing doesn't really lead to another. It's pretty much the MC walking around wherever on a whim with no actual end goal in mind, and it doesn't look like the story is really going anywhere. The author throws in random things the characters need to overcome without any real goal behind them other than "hey it would be kind of interesting if this happened".

All in all, it's okay. Not bad enough to drop, but not good enough to be excited for when the next chapter comes out. You could certainly do worse, but there's better out there. If you like the apocalyptic genre with game elements, I'd suggest reading Reincarnator. If you like the apocalyptic genre in an urban setting, then maybe try Global Evolution. If you read either/both of those and still want more, then maybe give this a shot. <<less

I really liked it at first but somehow it started to stray away from the apocalypse theme and became more like a weird myriad worlds of distopia themed thing instead. I initially thought from both the summary and the beginning chapters that she would start in a new apocalypse each time and have to fight to survive.
Spoiler

The whole point of searching for a agent/guide or whatever it was called at the beginning was to get a pass enter another world before it's apocalypse started and get an advantage of being able to get supplies and information before others.

[collapse]
And yet it's like everything gets thrown on it's head as soon as the first arc ends or rather toward the end of the arc things just get weirder and weirder. I don't hate the story but I was a bit disappointed with the way it progressed. I felt like the author had probably strayed away from their initial premise or they just didn't lead into the later chapters very well.

I'll probably still read for a while to see if it improves, I want to like the story since it's got a female main character with a resilient personality. My only real complaint is just the disappointing plot progression that mostly feels like it doesn't fit my initial expectations. I guess this is why it's called a "wonderland" because there are some rather bizarre things.

Honestly quite easily a favorite. Not an annoying male lead that was lobotomized with a crazy 5-20 girl harem. This is a refreshing read its nice and easy has you at the edge of your seat. It honestly isnt annoyingly repetitive like most novels on here only complaint is I wish there was more!

How do I say this...

This is... an actual story? An honest to god plot with honest to god character development, side character development, interesting and dynamic settings, and some actual tension and suspense? The translation and editing is also top notch, to the point it feels like it could have been written in English originally.

This definitely deserves to be rated much higher than it is currently rated. It is significantly better written than most of the other stories on this site and the author seems to be well read and... more>> educated, throwing in impressive references and allusions all the time. I'm sure I missed most of them.

Plot: 4.5/5
The Plot is fairly straightforward near the start. It's a survival story set in a post-apocalyptic, multi-dimensional universe. There is also an undercurrent of mystery regarding how things came to be the way they are, as well as about what the intentions of other characters are. A lot of the surprise plot twists are genuine surprises which are subtly foreshadowed in crafty ways. The characters interact with the setting even when the main character isn't present. This is something I totally did not expect from a web novel but it did. But why is this mentioned in the plot section instead of the character section of this review? Because the interactions that side characters make are actually a part of the plot. That is to say, the plot doesn't depend solely on the actions of the main character. It's wonderfully complex and dynamic.

Style: 4.5/5
In most translated web novels, I don't expect a decent style of narration/writing to survive the translation process. Yet for some reason, either because the translation team is amazing or because the author is just that good, this story retains a consistent, engaging, and sophisticated style.

Characters: 5/5
As mentioned above, the main character isn't the only dynamic character. Of course, she might get too chummy with some people too soon, but it's executed in a way that makes it sorta believable? In fact, by doing so, the author subverts our expectations at points where we might expect things to proceed in one way, only to trick us later once we are lulled into a sense of security regarding certain characters and their intentions.

Conclusion:
This is a good story. I'm giving it 5 stars here because it stands way above most of the stuff I read here, but if it was on goodreads (because I definitely think this is good enough to be professionally published) I would give it a solid 4/4.5. It's a very nice story, a little rough around the edges especially with regards to pacing and narrative techniques, but it is definitely worth your time if you're looking for a nice read with an amazing main character (the clever protagonist tag is there for a reason) and a story that'll keep you engaged.

Oh yeah, power through the first five or so chapters. They're a little strange but definitely worth it once the cast of characters is officially introduced. It's only uphill from there!

Also a side note about some of the more negative reviews, a lot of them are for the start of the novel, which is the part I mentioned isn't as straightforward as it first appears. Also, I suspect quite a lot of random 1 star reviews come from this one arc later on that pushes against some peoples' old fashioned and unimportant views. <<less

I'm giving it four since there are only 12 chapters translated. There's good chance I will change it to 5 stars in the future since it is really promising.

From what I read so far the story is about post apocalyptic survival in the world turned into "Hyperthermal Hell". Add parallel worlds, special abilities and some equivalent of zombies to the mix.

What I think about it so far? The scariest post apocalyptic novel I read so far. It should get horror tag added thanks to ch12, one of the creepiest things... more>> I ever read. From that alone I think author really mastered suspense to the point I find this story a little disturbing. <<less

At first I really thought it was a simple sci-fi apocalypse, you know, how to survive kind of scenarios, more killings, etc, HOW WRONG I WAS. But still, it's fantasy adventures will hook you up with its great plot, character development, and the deceitful romance tag (there's a romance tag in the webnovel app I'm using) HOW WRONG I WAS AGAIN, but it's okay. THE ROMANCE DOESN'T MATTER. (Though I'd love to see her being taken care of by the male lead.) I love the translations as well as it's... more>> greatly/neatly done and easier to understand. <<less

Totally underrated! If you haven't read Doomsday Wonderland yet, ask yourself -- why did you read that last trashy cultivation novel? Why did you plod through that s**** isekai harem barf-fest?

Okay, now calculate your wasted time and cry over how it could have been spent reading a novel with ACTUAL CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT?

Yes, that's right - a mainstream, action, cultivation/game-element Chinese web novel with a character arc! Setbacks!! A protagonist who struggles, who achieves meaningful victories!!!

Please read and give this story a boost. The world is fantastic, the powers are funny... more>> and clever, the twists are suspenseful, the action is heart-stopping. Read read read read read read read read! <<less

-Yeah, the characters are detailed.
-Yeah, the world idea is unique and interesting.
-Yeah, her card ability is good.
-However, these are all meaning if there's slice-of-life like, for example, MC just having a holiday on the beach playing volleyball plot is going on.
-There is no action, plot, plan, scheme, the thrill of contest and evolution.
-The Author is wasting characters, world building, and mc's abilities with this bad plot.
-This is exactly like someone stoling a famous novel from a famous author and writing his own boring plot... more>> in orijinal author's unique world and character building.
-This feels like a stolen famous story written by an amateur someone.

Many people probably don't like this for three reasons:

  1. It's not in an ancient setting.
  2. The MC don't scheme enough (well, in my opinion she's trying to save her ass first before plotting to destroy someone's life).
  3. The MC is not overpowered (yet).
The story is written in a western kind of way, where the MC slowly becomes stronger. It's not a one day kind of thing-- not even monthly kind of thing. She grows stronger every time she jumps to a new post-apocalyptic world from an old one. It's exhilarating to read a... more>> story where you don't know what will happen to the MC (since she's not so OP, she's a realistic kind of smart) and exciting to read when the MC successfully lives.

The phrase at the start of the description made me feel the MC is so so so idiotic at first (because look! She can't decide if her bf is truly trying to kill her or not!) but somehow I got over it lol.

It's worth a try and I love it. A breathe of fresh air among the mainstream chinese literature nowadays.

P.s. I just want to say how the description, "Doomsday Wonderland is a novel filled with subverted tropes, non-OP characters and a female friendly label which offends all politically correct fanatics" made me laugh. The story had just gone waaaaaaay beyond the norm. <<less

Although there are only 16 translated chapters at the time I am writing this, I can see a lot of potential in this novel. The fact that personal factors determine what abilities a person can obtain is very interesting, especially when you consider the multiverse angle the novel is sort of working with, as there would be infinite possible allies and enemies alike, with a large margin of them being literally unpredictable to the main character, as they will most likely not have any possible experience in a world where... more>> certain abilities could manifest themselves in only extreme conditions. On top of that, I enjoy the fact that the world is seemingly sassing her at times, but it never derails the plot in a huge or unjust way. All in all, if you have an hour to burn, you should read this novel, as once you start, you won't be able to put it down. <<less

This is such an underrated novel. Please ignore the low ratings, because its definitely worth giving DW a try.

If you're tired of:

-slapstick drama with female leads taking revenge on their sister, mothers, or whatever, and obtaining the op handsome ML with no story substance whatsoever.

... more>> -martial arts/ cultivation guys who have like 20 women in their harem just cause why not.

Then I recommend this story to you for a breathe of fresh air. The protagonist is a badass female. There's no romance, good action, a real story line, and actual side characters WITH individuality. I've read some comments saying there's none but that's so not true, the further you read the deeper everything gets and you'll come to understand the plot.

This is my top favorite web novel at the moment. It's honestly very unique and has elements of horror, gaming, scifi, and just everything I look for in genres. Highly recommend. <<less

Well you could say this novel is a mix of apocalyptic worlds and infinity genre. This is a pretty fresh concept and the story has a lot of potential, but I feel like it goes in a wrong direction ever since the survivors' Oasis and Pocket Dimensions. The first one, other than having a need to fulfill a certain point of plot (such a coincidence that MC found what she was looking for just like that! and so much chapters spent on the arc) is in my opinion totally idiotic... more>> and unnecessary and shouldn't really appear in a non-zombie theme... while the other one, is a total distraction from the main plot and totally ruins the immersion - while the life resetting was kind of interesting, the games that appear around c70 are totally ridiculous! People putting this novel on hold and making reviews around this chapter is a good example of it.

Also the whole survival in story.. Totally not feeling it. People perhaps die left and right, there are also many descriptions on dead bodies and such, but they are both some random people we don't even have conversations with, as well as people who don't have fleshed out personalities. So when they die, MC's situation kind of doesn't even change and doesn't affect her, especially since she and her companions have VIP plot armors. Author wanted to make a horror/dark story I guess, but it didn't end up well. Even Dreadful Radio Game has more tension and is more scary.

All in all I enjoyed the read and can't say it's bad, but up until c79 nothing much happened and the story is starting to twist to an unpredicable degree, so I suggest you not to take reviews made before c100 to heart. <<less

I read up to 75 chapters in one sitting! It's actually very good, though I hesitated a lot before deciding to try it because I read some reviews saying its same plot all over again, MC is this and that...

Her reactions when the world ends are truthfully not very realistic, however I dislike reading about MCs who always agonize over the smallest things, so I like that she is very decisive. MC is also not stupidly overpowered, though I suppose she can be considered lucky and her abilities have a... more>> lot of potential.

There's a review that says the novel reminds them of One Piece because of latest chapters. I have only ever seen about 100 episodes and I can't comment on that, but I don't find it that similar mostly because plot actually develops really quickly, there's no filler chapters and right now (at 75 chapters) the plot is very interesting, not straightforward, and I really cannot wait for more!

So for those who hesitate because of reviews but actually seem to find the concept of this novel interesting, you should definitely try it! <<less

Whoever comes by this novel, don't judge the 3.5 rating.

The side characters don't sit on the sidelines nor are completely useless. These side characters actually have combat power, they have interesting skills, their own personality and can think for themselves and do help the MC. Without the side characters some of the dangers wouldn't be avoided nor some conflicts wouldn't start either. The other characters may follow the MC around, but don't mistake that for just glorifying the MC. They each have their own background, agendas and strong abilities. But... more>> those tho judge it based on 30 chapters, obviously won't get it nor understand why they are so weak right now. The MC is not overpowered either. Technically the MC has powers even weaker than the side characters, the only difference is that she has her cheat (like every f*cking MC in all of novels usually have) and her cheat can't even be used continuously. There are limitations, which is why I highly enjoy this novel. This novel doesn't give anyone an easy time. SO the MC isn't all that f**king glorified at all, maybe people think that way because she actually uses her head, so she appears more competent than the average person. It's not like everyone else is stupider either. They are average, it's just the MC is smarter. The not having a goa thingl, is also useless in this kind of story as well. So if you need your character to have a goal of some sort, I guess this really isn't a story for you. However it's not like this is a aimless and boring slice of life story because the MC doesn't have a goal, it's a really action pact and eventful story within such short chapters. Every chapter their is progression in the story.

Next is about the "arbitrary events" and other "random things". The random things and events that happen I think are fairly reasonable, unlike some other novels I've read. But I'll admit for this opinion it is very very very subjective. Obviously little things people nitpick in this story won't be the same for other people. Some of what's being nitpicked, doesn't bother me for the reason that it's part of the premise of the story. And for such a crazy and unpredictable story, I'll accept a lot of crazy sh*t happening because it's this kind of world. And although it's such a ludicrous world, the author doesn't use that for an excuse to disregard previous statements that's been made about the character's ability, the layout of the world etc. Overall just want to say this is a great and addicting read that you all should give a chance to. <<less
