A very immature heroine and ML. Really, if the FL had been smarter, this would have been bearable but... The dialogue is something from a storybook and the ML is the crazy possessive kind of guy who is jealous of his own kids and kin. Not for me.

A novice story. I believe its the author's first work and it is rough, with chaotic and messy elements.

It is supposed to be an apocalyptic story but it also has elements of cultivation. FL is also a typical Mary Sue with OP abilities that is overpowered and crazy.

ML is boring, creepy and just an overall ew guy.

Story is really quick paced with so many messy plotlines. Time goes by so quick and things happen and bam wham next messy chaotic storyline happens.

Not recommended.

Well. I'm at the 8th chapter: the FL already has a space, is filthy rich (with villas), came 3 months before the Apocalipse (and know the future), have a hubby who's OP (not in contact yet, but expected soon) and can cultivate (so I suppose will bully the poor zombies). So where is the expected strugling? the suspense? the horror? the survival? I'm not against OP character but I feel there is a limit or a graduation in power needed.

It's not the first novel doing that so the beginning is... more>> not original (well I suppose the 5 kids are...).

I have a question: why did the FL transmigrated? Why not a simple rebirth? Is it so that when ML arrive she can accept him without any reserve? Or because she can have a happy-go-lucky personnality (after all the O. Owner lost her parents, raise 5 children alone and if she was reborn experienced death and betrayal) ? Anyway that make the FL less interesting than being with traumas and hatred.

At the 15th chapter: the children's father is back and accepted like he had never left... she had a one-night stand with him (from the future know he's a OP villain) sooo in what way does she feel it's okay to not be suspicious and distant to test his character before getting in touch with the children?

At the 32nd chapter: She can easily fight and with hubby beat a 2nd level Zombie (yes they are already here). The worst is that there are no questions asked like what is a cristal core and level 2 zombie? why does she seems prepared to the end and so good at combat?

This novel is amazing in accepting everything like it's obvious. Okay, I have 123 chapters left... this is where I stop.

My comment is that :

Spoiler

FL and family are too OP, no mystery or schemes here, no struggle only main characters having a familly trip in a zombie world. Also, too many children, Wen Mo and Wen Bei barely have actual personalities the other 3 are useless. The ML brought 3 friends with him, also flat and useless.

But the worst is that the FL is uninteresting, she doesn't care: doesn't care she's in another world, that she got 5 children in charge, that a man claim to be the father, that the world will be a no man-land soon. She treats it like a game: a zombie killing game, a child raising game.

And one thing I always wonder, she's so damn selfish!! She got prepared a bought like 10 years of supplies (medical, food, clothes, water, seeds,...) for an entire village and she still take from the supermarket. A can she takes is litterally the survival of others. Does she still need it?

[collapse]

If someone went to the end, I'm curious to see if there is a plot later on and if FL became interesting. <<less

The review about this being chaotic is right. I do feel like the first three chapters seemed fine. Despite the outrageous amount of children (which to me feels like a case of not being able to "give up" a personality) the premise seemed okay, and the pace didn't seem too fast?? (To me). HOWEVER.

Spoiler

The story was ruined by : 1, the sudden reveal of the father – As in, before the apocalypse even starts, he breaks up with his fiancée to get with the female lead whom he slept with at a hotel. Mind you, you would think he'dwait a bit to show up. No. He simply goes to her city, introduces himself, says he is the kids' dad and that's where I stopped. Furthermore, FL announces it has been a few months already????? NOWHERE did we know that.

[collapse]

Spoiler

Problem 2 : THE PACING. It ties with n°1 but still. The story goes so fast without is knowing like???? AGAIN. Months pass with no warning, just a casual mention. And the apocalypse HASN'T BEGUN. So tell me what is this story about??? Shes supposed to survive in the apocalypse by herself but the super rich and strong man is already with her, so??? Anyway.

[collapse]

Problem 3 : ML is CREEPY and the characters are one dimensional. This man shows up out of the blue one chapter and
Spoiler

Gets a picture of the FL where she is, I'm sorry, described like a CHILD. He then calls her obedient and cute?? — And mind you this man is flat.

[collapse]

The writing is very descriptive but also repetitive, which is typical when you're new to writing and feel like your chapter has to be a certain length (with quality being a compromise).

Spoiler

The children are described by personality traits (their names dont matter, in fact I'm not sure which one is which, and it's entirely possible they've been switched at some point) which further proves my point about them being 5 because AT couldn’t choose which personality to ditch. The ML has his 'heart melted' 4 times in one chapter and the FL has no personality whatsoever. All she does is buy things for the apocalypse and interact with other characters, being antagonized by some.

[collapse]

Again, the story doesn't give you the time to attach to the characters, which make them sound like caricatures of this cliché trope.
Spoiler

This is probably a novice work. Honestly by usb is full of stories I've written exactly like this one ans I would've read it, but the pacing is simply too fast and the ML too creepy for me to handle it.

I agree with every other review. The only thing to add is that this book seems like it was written by AI. Honestly, as one reviewer said, it’s like a summary. I went back to the raws and it’s exactly like that. Flat and one dimensional, it lacks depth.

The intital story is good (the idea of the novel' story is good) and even that we for once had a transmigration mother who really cared about her children and not always throw them away is a very good and nice, the problem is the written style is very very very poor and bad!

When reading you would feel like you'r reading a somewhat ditailed summary about a novel and not reading a novel.

Things and matters jump from here to here, there is no connection. I somewhat get tired while trying... more>> to connect the very big gaps. And many things happens without any reasone.

When the femal lead first come to the book, she didn't even need a few secound to realise that she was transmigrate into a book! And she know the book strait away!

When the end came and they were on the road to city B, whenever they encouter zombies, whither they are a small or a big grops, only the femal lead and male lead will go down to kill them, while the other three big, militray men, the male lead' friends who came with him will stay still in the car and you'll never see them even if the two leads were tired!

While on the roud, she suddnely thought she need a driver and a cook, then she suddnely heard a crying voice, when she go there she found a family and for no reason she thought they are a good people so she took them!

Over all, this novel too s*upid and bad written! <<less

I don't think I can continue after reading only 16 chapters. It's... really hard to read. It's also a short read so that's probably why everything feels so rushed but... it's so illogical, it's actually insane. I don't recommend reading this, it just made me angry so please save yourself the lost brain cells. Please feel free to continue reading my review if you want to see ranting. Oof.

Spoiler

The 1st chapter begins with MC waking up with a throbbing head to crying kids. The moment she wakes up and sees the kids, she instantly knows she's in a novel, monologues about how rich she (as the supporting character) was and then gushes over how she is now their mom and loves them and gets up to make them food. First of all, how did she originally enter the body? The chapter hints that she must have hit her head but if she hits her head hard enough to die and allows the MC to enter the body then how did she miraculously feel well enough to get up and go cook in the kitchen? Shouldn't she go to the hospital or take care of her head first? Or maybe it wasn't that hard of a bump??? This really foreshadows the future chapters where the author mentions something but never explains it as if once it's been mentioned then we should just accept it and not ask further questions (i.e. all the babies act cute only with no real big conflict, ML instantly loves the family and only wants to marry her despite them being literal strangers, MC automatically accepts ML is the father without asking for proof, etc.)

Then chapter 2 has her recalling a bit of the original novel. So the protagonist of that novel, Bai Xialoian, is supposed to be the main female lead yet... the author made it so biased to the MC that I cannot believe any actual author will ever write their MC like BX.

  • BX's father caused a driving accident that kills the MC's parents (what the heck is this family line when you're supposed to be a mary-sue FL)
  • BX is not as good-looking as the MC but the author tries to argue that BX looks "innocent/delicate" so that's why guys like her more than the much-better-looking-but-quiet MC
  • BX pushed original MC into zombies even though she's supposed to be the female protagonist who someone assumes should be powerful especially in a novel named "The Female Lead Apocalypse is Amazing"
  • MC is supposed to be a vicious supporting character but literally is described as a caring, responsible mother of 5 children who had her family pendant stolen by BX and then used as cannon fodder. She labels herself as vicious but doesn't give the readers any examples of MC being vicious in the novel.

I had so many issues with this and I'm only on chapter 2. It's like the author only picks and chooses elements of other popular novels (cute babies, loving husbands, OP space, strong and sensible in-laws, etc.) and throws them all together but doesn't care to explain the issues that comes with with these set-ups (hardships with raising kids especially as a single mother, no mention about the r*pe or how it could affect the mental state of an 18 year old girl at the time, etc.). It's like there's no consequences or effort made in order to get there.

Then within a few chapters, you see that the ML recently woke up from a coma, annuls his arranged marriage because that girl was the one who drugged him 5 years ago causing him to sleep with the MC and get her pregnant. Those 5 years are explained away with the excuse that after the incident happened, ML gets dragged into a very important national case and had to stay away for a few years, then gets shot, falls into a coma, and hence why we're here now. He finds out really quickly that the MC is the one he was with that night and rushes to find her because he thinks she has a kid with him. Ok, so this MC was powerful enough to find out who he slept with 5 years ago, her name, address, background, picture, etc. but he wasn't powerful enough to find out that she had 5 kids at the same time? Like, he literally shows up at her house with his buddies and when she opened the door (TO COMPLETE STRANGE MEN WHEN SHE'S A SINGLE MOTHER LIVING ALONE WITH FIVE 5-YEAR OLDS), he gets so excited thinking the little girl was his daughter then astonished that actually there's 4 little boys too and they're quintuplets.

And this is where I completely lost all hope for this novel. She opens the door to strange men, the little girl complains about her brothers making her hair ugly, the ML is gushing over how cute the scene is, then the little girl looks at him and askes if he was their daddy to which he says yes I'm your dad. The only reasoning the author gives is that the father looks exactly like the oldest son. Like, what. Excuse me. A 5 year old girl isn't afraid of strange men and instead asks if one of them is their dad because of their looks. Sorry, I don't buy it. Then the MC looks at them coldly and asks what they're there for. The ML askes to come in and talk and she lets them in. Then the little girl wants to get down from her mother's arms and go to the strange man. AND SHE ALLOWS IT. SHE ALLOWS, A COMPLETELY STRANGE MAN TO COME INTO HER HOME, CLAIM TO BE THE DAD AND HOLDS HER DAUGHTER AND EVERYONE THINKS IT'S OK. Literally the only reason the author gives us is that the dad looks so much like her children that everyone can see it not to mention her. SORRY, PLEASE EXCUSE ME. BUT YOU DETERMINED HIM TO BE THE FATHER BASED ON HIS LOOKS? SHE DIDN'T EVEN ASK FOR ANY PROOF! NO DNA TEST! NO NOTHING! LIKE OMG I JUST COULDN'T AT HOW DUMB THIS WHOLE THING IS. I read a few more chapters just to see if I missed something and a DNA was taken out at some point but NO, I literally didn't see it. Then in front of the kids, he apologizes for taking away her innocence and said he was on a mission, shot, and in a coma for 5 years and that's why he didn't come earlier. AND SHE BUYS IT, RIGHT AWAY. LIKE, NO FURTHER QUESTIONS, NO ASKING HIS AGE, HIS WORK, HIS FAMILY, ETC. NOTHING TO MAKE HIM LESS OF A STRANGER. She only thinks, oh so he was the big villain in the original novel who died not long after she did. And here I'm thinking, THEN WHY DIDN'T HE COME SEE YOU IN THE ORIGINAL NOVEL??? HE CAME SO FAST THIS TIME NOTHING WAS CHANGED. LIKE WHAT HAPPENED IN THIS TIMELINE THAT CAUSED HIM TO WAKE UP AND GO TO YOU ASAP BUT NOT THE PREVIOUS TIMELINE. HOW DID HE MISS YOU PREVIOUSLY AND MC ENDED UP DEAD? But the MC never even thought about it. Then she goes and cook and all the little kids already accept this instant dad even though MC has yet, up to this point, confirmed that he was their dad. They literally accept him so fast just so the author can set up cute interaction scenes between father and children.

And then this is where I decided to stop reading after not finding any actual proof of kinship. The oldest son Wen Mo is having complicated feelings because he has a bit of resentment to this father who missed 5 years. The MC acknowledges this, but says that the ML is the dad (FINALLY BUT STILL WITH NO PROOF, NO DNA TESTING, NO NOTHING, LITERALLY JUST RELYING ON LOOKS AND WHAT ML SAID) so Wen Mo should get along with this father because he already explained why he was gone for so many years so it's not ML's fault. Then she asks all the children if they like their dad (when they literally only spent a bit of time at this point with) and 2 kids nod but the other 3 are undecided. Then this MC has the audacity to ask why they don't like their dad and won't call him dad to which the 3 kids get sad, cry, and hug their mom saying they can't say it. Then MC says, if you want to call him dad then just do it, he's your dad. LIKE O.M.G. WHAT. YOUR KIDS ARE CRYING AND YOU ARE TRYING TO GET THEM TO CALL A TOTAL STRANGER DAD. THERE IS NO UNDERSTANDING OR COMPASSION FROM THE MC. SHE BELIEVED THAT SINCE SHE DIDN'T HAVE A MOTHER OF FATHER TO LOVE HER THEN SHE WANTED HER KIDS TO NOT MISS IT BUT DIDN'T WANT TO ASK THEM WHAT THEY REALLY WANTED??? YOU DON'T EVEN HAVE A FRICKIN DNA REPORT OR ANY OTHER PROOF THAT THIS MAN IS REALLY WHAT HE SAYS HE IS. YOU ARE LITERALLY BELIEVING HIM BASED ON YOUR "GOOD FEELING" OF HIM. SHE SENSED THAT HE HAS A "GOOD CHARACTER" EVEN THOUGH HE HAS A COLD DEMEANOR SO THAT'S ENOUGH FOR HER TO BELIEVE WHATEVER HE SAYS. MC LITERALLY SAID HE WAS THE BIG VILLIAN SO ISN'T A VILLIAN A BAD GUY?? WHY NOW SUDDENLY HE'S NOT A VILLIAN ANYMORE??? DOES THE AUTHOR NOT UNDERSTAND WHAT THE DEFINITION OF A VILLIAN IS?? THE AUTHOR IS MISUSING WORDS AND FOR WHAT REASON??? WHAT IS EVEN THE POINT OF THE NOVEL THE MC READ BESIDES LETTING HER KNOW WHAT'S GOING TO HAPPEN IN THE FUTURE. THE ML POPS OUT OF NOWHERE 5 YEARS LATER AND SPENDS A FEW HOURS WITH THE KIDS AND THEY'RE SUPPOSED TO JUST LOVE HIM??? AND 2 OF THE 5 DO??? WHEN HE HASN'T DONE ANYTHING OR PROVIDED FOR THEM IN ANY WAY?? AND THE MC IS UPSET THAT THE KIDS DON'T INSTANTLY ACCEPT ML??? YOU LITEARLLY JUST LEARNED HIS NAME AND NOTHING ELSE ABOUT HIM AND ARE TRYING TO FORCE YOUR KIDS TO LIKE HIM???

I just can't at this point. I have never given up on a novel so fast or been so angry at how lazy and sloppy the storyline is. I glanced through most of the reviews and I agree with what they said about the shortcomings of the novel. I don't dislike the MC, I dislike the author. Whoever the author is, I'm sorry but I don't like how you arranged this story. I have never seen a more biased author before where everything and everyone seems to be created just as a prop for the MC. AND I HAVEN'T EVEN SAID EVERYTHING AND IT'S TOO MUCH WRITING FOR A REVIEW. Please don't read this unless you actually do like novels like this. Maybe it'll get better later but it already lost me in the beginning chapters.

3/5 Okay, but wouldn't recommend it. Readable, but not really readable if you get my drift. Story? Potential. Characters? I don't know them. Translation? Not bad. Progression and story plot holes? Girl... Try again. Personality? Size does not matter, personality is where it's at. Oh, also it's... empty in here.

This story is about a girl in the apocalypse with romance, I guess...? This really isn't a story, it's a summary of a book. It's flat, one-dimensional. You're told this person did this, this person feels this, it's empty. It's just... more>> a summary. Honestly, I would like to see more stories where the FL is in the apocalypse, but this has really made me... disappointed.

The first chapters are okay. They bring the reader up to speed, but I expected the story to start once we met the ML. Instead, it's just another summary. Oh my god, he knows this. Oh my god, he experienced this. Yeah, cool, told me everything, yet showed me nothing.

Spoiler

The FL is reborn into a novel where the minor antagonist has 5 children and she is given an OP power-up. She is reborn before the apocalypse and starts to pile up supplies while also activating the jade that was going to be stolen by the evil OG FL. All fine and dandy, but the characters are so bland. It might be the fault of the writing for that as we are just told she did this and that, like when we were just told she just cultivated. Oh, did I mention there's cultivating? Like, I get it you want new things and interesting plot lines, but it just came out of nowhere. The problem is that the author is like: FL started cultivating. Her children ate the cultivating pill too and started cultivating. Like com'on man, I know you could have like shown us this instead of told us this...

[collapse]

Overall, the characters have no personality as far as I've seen. Story, what story? You're telling me things.

I won't lie, I'll read this, but it feels like my brain is just reading. Yes, you're supposed to be reading, but you're also supposed to be thinking. Thinking, what's gonna happen? Who's that? What will happen soon? Yet, I do none of that. Cuz, everything is being spoon-fed to ya.

This story doesn't make you think. If you're looking for a story that is interesting and makes you think, then don't start this. But, if you're looking for a book that'll tell you everything and isn't really that deep by all means, continue. Yet I warn you, traveler, those who seek peace will soon crave violence. You're one of many—who have come and gone, leaving only traces of their experiences in disappointment and sore fingers—that'll walk this path of endless stories. Soon, very soon, you'll be like me. Fallen in the loop of reviews. Unsure if what you read is something you wish to remember. It is your choice to continue. Your choice to start. Your choice to end. Anyway, have fun reading. <<less

The translations was good. The premise of the story was interesting, but that's all. The story writing was immature and lacks depth. The MC and ML were not fully fleshed, feeling very 2D and foolish but as a starting author I was impressed that a whole story, beginning, middle, and end had managed to be cranked out and shared. I understand the difficulty of it and give the author major props. In the future, if the author could slow down to flesh everything out, the story would become so much... more>> better. Jiayu! <<less

The story was entertaining, however there were plenty of redundancy throughout the entire story. There were times when characters would ask s*upid questions. This included the FL.

I like that the FL wasn't stingy or greedy but there were times when she would glare and give attitude to ML for no good reason, but he found her cute (???)

The flow of events and dialogue didn't feel real or organic. Especially when the males spoke with each other or how the children spoke or behaved.

The author does not seem to understand... more>> how actual children behave. The FL hardly ever scolded the kids and she pretty much spoiled them and is manipulated into giving in to them, and yet these 4 year Olds have the maturity to be "obedient" children when she needs them to be.

The FL is someone who doesn't like noisy things and conveniently all 5 of her children are quiet and well-behaved when she needs them to be, and this is on a long trip in an RV. They don't have disputes with each other and don't get antsy or jealous of each other much. None of this makes sense, children just aren't like this, maybe A CHILD but not 5 of that age.

Also while I do like that she was powerful, I wish the author thought more about her other characters. They wrote these characters but didn't really let them utilize their power or show-off. For example she mention that a character would have a power, but that is it - there would be no scenario where they show any mastery or anything. It would be like so-and-so has the duo ability of fire and water, and then that's it. It would serve no relevance later in the story.

The story kind of just trickled away, all her main problems were resolved on their own and the ending might as well have been "And they all lived happily ever after - the end" while it wasn't bad but the end wasn't very interesting.

Then the bonus chapters were once again more redundancy just from another character's point of view - all though the zombie king's point of view was kind of interesting, but dark. I would have rather they had written an epilogue of a day in the life of people living in the base or something, the author wrote all these characters they could have at least put in a little more effort in giving closure to the end. <<less

Thank you for the translation I just think that the idea was good but the execution was not too sharp

I was expecting some action and adventure but it was too mild and then why with the tag of cultivation the FL stays weaker then ML it doesn't make sense or am I too picky 😞

I only read to here it doesn't draw me to continue expecting more
