Synopsis

Have you ever thought that the state of the world as it presently is, could revert to the laws of the ancients? When a series of strange incidents beginning with the disappearance of his friend led Luo Yuan to question the possibility of an apocalypse, he becomes embroiled in the midst of a global-scale chaos. Evolution has turned the flora and fauna of the vast and bountiful Earth into something that had never been seen before. Coincidentally, the all-dominating Homo sapiens have ended up at the bottom of the food chain. From mystery to crisis, will Luo Yuan discover a means of saving humanity by racing to the top of the food chain? Or will he strive in accordance with the law of the jungle? It is the dawn of an age of the survival of the fittest.

Very good novel but i am disappointed to see translator cut the mature parts. Really man? When I wanted to read something I want to read it wholly. Other than this translation is good. Story is good. Release rate awesome. Respect for that.

Jack hates useless baggage tied to the MC... The MC keeps picking random females up and it is annoying. The novel is not bad actually, it's just the author wants to be a harem for the MC that's dragging this novel down

Decent novel. Though I am very unsatisfied with the translators... If you don't want to translate something because it may be too 'mature' then either pick a different novel to translate, or don't translate at all. i.e. You took liberties with chapter 18, and didn't translate large portions of it. You edited in your own words to make it flow better since so much was removed... I mean really?? That's like defacing the original author's work, because you don't agree, or are too childish when it came to translating the 'sexual' portions of his book. Is this the only instance where you edited the original writing? Can I still trust reading whatever you translate? Or do I need to go and read the raws? Very disappointed. Please get your act together.

The good points The update stability is great ! 25 chapters a week ! Exceptional. 5/5 World background too ! I mean, this isn't a post-apocalyptic world, it's a survival during apocalypse, and it makes you quite eager to read it ! And it's very well done ! I can't say much without spoiling but the world setting is great and quite logical! The bad points. Translation quality : I gave this 1 star and would have given 0 if it was possible. It's true that the story is readable since it's not badly written, but there's something awful about this translation. You should have seen that the translating pace is incredible, and there's something we can all deduce : a lot of people are working on this. But I don't think they work together. Some characters have their names changed from time to time (Zhao Gang), items have their characteristics changed too (he has 1.5m blade which is described in 6-7 differents ways, and most of the time they say it's a KNIFE !!! WTH?) Well, the translators don't work together, and the reading experience worsens quite fast because of this. I think an proofreader or TLcheck would make this better. This is quite sad, but i've become used to it... Story development: Well, it's a survival, but the hero's quite generous (or he thinks he is. i just think he's an hypocrite, but that will wait for the next point). So there are quite a few people introduced. The quest system is repetitive, void of surprises, and you even want to skip the fight scenes since it's too much into description and often farfetched. There's not many objectives in his life, he's just chasing after girls whenever he has the opportunity. Especially other people's girls. I find the pace quite slow too. 150 chapters soon, and you wander why you're reading this. Btw, he tries to have a harem, willingly or not. Characters: I'll mainly talk about the hero, because the author is quite stupid. He makes 2 kinds of characters (excluding the mc) : the hero's girls, future girls, ex girls, possible love interest and so on, and the rest. The former has plot armor (obvious), and the latter is expendable. The authors sometimes kills the latter, or makes him betray the MC, just fail an evolution, or just quit. Then there's the MC. He was quite decent at first. Selfish but decent. But the more i read, the worse he appears. First he rapes a widow (a 2 weeks widow, she says no multiple times, but he thinks she's okay with it). You can pratically say he'll be a pedophile soon (14 years love interest) and rapist another time. Oh, and the number of collateral victims, or innocent that die because of him is staggering. Then there's his ability. With his abilities he can make his country survive the apocalypse, but he's too selfish to even imagine that possibility. There's even a time when he volontarly gives up on someone in his group and decide to go away. Until one of the girls tells him to fetch the poor dude : he's like 'oh, i didn't know about him, i'll be back in a few minutes after saving him !'. So he's a huge hypocrite. I'm dropping this.

One important thing is: THE MC IS HORRIBLE, AND DISSAPOINTING, HE ONLY CARE FOR HIS KIDNEY, ALWAYS JUMPING AROUND THE GIRLS, THOSE GIRLS ARE HORRIBLE TOO THEY ARE USELESS IN THE STORY. AT FIRST IT WAS INTERESTING BUT NOW I'M REGRETTING TO HAVE SAID THAT.

I am a big fan of post apocalypse novels and when I was looking at this one I saw it had a game like element so I thought I was in for a great read. But as it turns out this novel is a huge disappointment. The translation is so bad and has so many grammar and continuity errors that it pulls you out of the story. But that's not even the worst part! The Mc is hands down the most inconsistent character I have ever seen In all my years reading novels. He can walk in a room see someone and then for no apparent reason have such a deep connection that they are willing to die for each other. I mean??????? What? Who is that? ooooo you use to know her from kindergarten? Ok let's kidnap her and kill her boyfriend she'll be ok with it in a couple of weeks. (That's real by the way not the kindergarten bit but the rest of it is in the book) WHAT!! Why just to add another Harem member?......And the Harem is so bad as he seemed to treat women as consumables and tools as he will use them, drop them and get a newer one. I don't usually mind novels that have breaks in them but that have to be earned and NONE OF THEM ARE! I mean come on in one her literally raped her abandoned her then finds her again kidnapped her killing her boyfriend and innocents of the town and then raped her AGAIN! And it was at that point I lost all hope in this novel sorry but I just can't ignore All that and still route for the Mc no matter how much I love the genre. All and all this was a very promising novel that turned out to be crap.

A translator shouldn't change the content of the original content unless it has some typos or untranslatable sentences.Eg.There might be some weird traditional languages or mythds that nobody understand or care about.Some repeated sentences can also be deleted if it doesn't affect the story.But it is a no-go to simply skip or delete some content.If you are really afraid that some content might affect some readers,then please simply put a warning with brackets instead.But try not to spoil the plot too much by using warnings too much.

the story really was good it was my favorite, perfectly to my liking, apocalypse, OP logical badass mature MC, good events and smooth progress in all aspect of the story. up until about 130. then the MC start adapting a selfish ruthless mentality he could kill innocent people to survive or a love rival, while difficulties start pouring ridiculously at them, all of witch really set me in bad mood as had high hope for this novel based the on 100 chapter of characters and the world building. but now i have to drop it, i don't understand why some oppose translators editing some minor details of the story, if they did this story would have continue prospering.

(Attention spoiler in the second half of the cons) First review ever here in Webnovel. But I must write something about this book. The story is amazingly frustrating, but also a very good story. I'm very conflicted. Big Pros: - The world background is just fabulous, not your typical apocalypse story. It is also very well thought, such good imagination. The author have all my support. The story is progressing, with a good plot existing. When a story is very good, I'm a man of few words, I don't have anymore to say than this. So don't get too discouraged with the cons, because it is just some points that does not take away the fact that, it is an excellent story. Cons that frustrate you sometime: - But, (there is unfortunately always a but) the translation quality is bad and confusing because of two translators working on it. Sometime the quality is almost machine-translation-like. Sometime the name of the fu ck'n thing is a blade, or a knife, or a machette or a I don't know what. Sometime mistakes about the level of a mission or the level of a beast. And a lot more. - My second and most frustrating problem is the characters. MC is not behaving like normal people would in such world, sometime too kind, save a lot of people, especially a girl or a woman and especially ones he knows. Yes girl because legal age of consent in China is 14 years old !!!!! But for our occidental mentality, it is a little bit revolting and disgusting. I'm doing my best going forward, but then there is harem. 100 chapters and 4-5 Ex's, actual GF, love interest, one way love, and every body else who want to leap on him and f*ck him to get in his harem and survive. Sometimes 2, 3, 4 or 5 chapters of story development to save a girl and than she dies. An arc of 5-10 chapters just to realize they're literally again at starting point even worse off. He accidentally pass by a camp , get angered because he find his ex ( but more exactly a one night stand rape, with developed feeling from the girl like always in China, almost every romance start with a rape my godness). So his ex is with a new boyfriend, but get him killed not even by himself but his new girlfriend lol XD. And in the way kills a dozen of innocents men in the camp, leaving a once happy and secure camp of more than a hundred not safe anymore. I won't ever started with the behaviour of the grils/BFs, that's a another big text and I don't have the energy to complain anymore lol >.< And so on, and so on. Despite, those frustrating moments, I really like the story though, believe me. And I will keep carrying on, continuing reading nevertheless and hope it don't get worse. Pray with me, Amen ~Lord YoloNatss~

The first 400+ chapters are good enough to read, after that it just gets damn wierd and nonsense. This novel goes from great to trash. If you are at chapter 400+ and you are starting to wonder about what you are reading..... My advice is its time to STOP. save your power stones. The rest of the novel just gets worse and worse and worse. Basically its like this. He becomes a god and trashes all the aliens, the end.

First of all - I read most of the prior reviews and some people seem to think, the sexual content has been cut out. This is wrong. In the beginning I'm led to believe that the original work was written this way and later the sexual content is fleshed out more than enough - not that I need it - but it's a standard thing for this kind of novel. The translation is totally good enough but sometimes the translator (or author) is not ****** sense. (Mixing around numbers or randomly switching terms for the same object - such as going between Machete (one handed, tip heavy bush knife), Zhanmadao (Chinese two handed saber) and just knife (like the German war knife, I guess?) but besides this the translation is totally fine. World building and story progression is great. Some novels of this kind feel too rushed (****** you feel like: yeah, at this speed humanity should be extinct by chapter 300 - but somehow humanity manages. Some have nothing happen after the initial outbreak crisis.) This is not one of them. There is constantly something new. The protagonist goes through different lifestyles which includes one unique accident after another. (Not like God and Devil Worlds - Conquer Base, Defend Zombie Wave, get Abducted by Monster, Conquer another countries bases, defend zombie wave, get back, get abducted... repeat) The characters are not super heroes (besides the main characters) They quite feel like what I imagine normal every day Joes to be like in an end of the world scenario to be, which makes sense. They also slowly improve, though. The main character is too nice for my personal taste. I would banish or kill anyone, who even slightly lowers my chance of survival by committing mistakes such as screaming at every scary moment, constantly puking and wasting food, not following my orders and being selfish or running away from camp in a fit of childish anger. I don't quite understand why he tolerates them. The main character is pretty altruistic and seems to be a pretty peaceful person, who only kills to protect his own and his parties life. He never robs other survivors, doesn't (normally) rape anyone (there is one - kind of - exception), constantly risks his own life to save them. I don't know what kind of superman the other readers expect, but our main character is a former office worker, wo is having his own problems just surviving and still saving men and women - without taking them all to the bedroom. In my opinion more then enough of the heroics. I don't think powerful people in general would treat their companions this well in this situation. I also like the way the main character is growing. It is gradual, there is no exaggerated jumps in power stemming from sudden gains of super op abilities - he also fails nearly all acquisitions of evolution based abilities, which makes it feel like the author is holding back his golden thumb as much as he can - good job. In total it is among the best of its kind easily surpassing god and devil world. - in my opinion.

Update speed has come almost to a halt. At this rate it will be a few years before the final dozen chapters are released. Shame on you translators.

They should just do us all a favor and take this book out behind the shed and put it out of it's misery! This books update schedule is atrocious and the story has totally gone from a 9.0 to a 2.0 max.

it used to be my go-to novel before since it gives me the thrill of surviving in an apocalypse in its early chapters. But the more it progresses the more it becomes boring. it became more like harem building than surviving the apocalypse. i guess the novel got less update since so many ppl dropped the novel ... well i did too ... rip
