Little Mushroom: Judgment Day
About this deal
In the Abyss, home to the mutated xenogenics, there lived a sentient little mushroom. Because it had been nourished by the blood and flesh of the deceased human An Ze, not only did it take on a similar-looking human form, but a similar name as well: An Zhe. Lu Feng goes through everything inside his head, in the silence of the gray little room. Everything he did, everything he saw, every little thing he thought about. Post apocalyptic story is one of the story that I actually love to read and happy to started this book without knowing anything other than it’s danmei and found this book own that story and A REALLY GOOD ONE *heart eyes*
Also known as fairies’ baths, scarlet elf cups make a tiny puffing sound when they release their spores into the air. They are more common in the wetter west side of the UK.
The characters in this book are incredibly well-developed. The author has a talent for making characters feel vivid and real, whether they're a passerby described in one sentence or someone who'll accompany the reader for a few chapters. An Zhe in particular was a delightful protagonist. His perspective on the story events and his exploration of what it means to live as a human is equal parts endearing, funny and bittersweet. As for Lu Feng - I won't say much but as the second most important character, every scene with him in it had me gripped!

I love that Lily (who is a 6 year old and is not allowed to go outside) has all the gossip, like the minute lu feng left the room she’s giving all the details on him to an zheLook, I can’t comment on the accuracy. One day I’ll be able to read the source material, but that day is not today. However, at this point, I have tried reading a novel from just about every publisher who is tl-ing Asian works and this has managed to impress me. First, it’s very smooth. There are no typos, nor any strange formatting issues like dropping a line mid-sentence, random spacing changes, etc (looking at you, WE). There are no awkward word choices or strangely written sentences. It feels professional, and since this is a small business, that’s even more impressive! I am looking forward to reading more of their works. It is against this monumental reality of cataclysm that An Zhe’s innocent search for his spore unfolds, and because he’s a literal mushroom, with a rudimentary and somewhat naive understanding of good and evil or of what propels humans to do the things they do, there is very little space for the endless self-justifying impulse of “human interest”. In a little mushroom’s rendering of the world, the ugliness—that is to say, all the details of struggle and survival—is stark and unflinching, with nothing to hide behind. What we are ultimately left with is a haunted and haunting portrait of what we do to one another in our desperate grasping to unmake our undoing. It’s such a subtle story written with so much depth. Maybe I’m being over dramatic but just reading this left me with indescribable feelings. It left me thinking more about our future, the future of the world. Will this be what we end up with?
