    I really love the concept of this entire story. This, is truly a beautiful work of literature. (Some Spoilers) --------------------‐--------------- I really like how, throughout this entire story, they made the use of "outer gods" or lovecraftian concepts and shone an entirely different light and perspective on it. The purpose of lovecraft's creations is to induce fear by the fear of the "unknown". But what if the "unknown" became known? What if these tentacle like beings aren't what they seem to be, as others portray it? And this is what this story beautifully expounded on along it's story. Also, "The Most Ancient Dream" is a reference to one of lovecraftian's monster's called Azatoth, the one who dreams about the universe's existence. And with all that, the author made a butt-clenching, very depressing, heart clenching, yet heart-warming story.

      It's chapter 335, where the branch mention. But I'd recommend you to reread it from start of giganthomachia

    Man, this novel is truly a blessing to humanity.. As like Kim Dokja that sneaks his work time to read Ways od Survival, I also sneaking myself to read this. Sometimes I have my eyes blurry by the almost dropped tears in my eyes. The amount of times my heart goes sad happy and went to roller coaster of emotions, I really lost count of them. The 0th regression really makes me cry like a newborn baby. . . . I really wish Yoo Jung Hyuk could fully remember that regression time, and (spoiler) as for the promised Yoo Jung Hyuk's sponsor I really wanted to see it accomplished and could be told in the novel. That the only thing, i feel lack in the ending. But overall this novel really makes my day feels special. Also I think I really relate to this story motee than any literature ever

    Very important - do NOT read anything on the wikis. Wikis for Omniscient... contain major spoilers, which you'll encounter even if you're very careful and try to avoid them.

    Say... Does the Author name the novel Three Ways to Survive in Ruined World, because all these novel story and plot about how they try to end scenario around three kind of People, The Writer, The Reader (also Constellation), and The Protagonist way??? I always wondering if i miss something because i cant find these Three 'ways' to survive being told by author

    • dreameralien
      Dec 30, 2020

      I think they mentioned them but all scattered over the novel: I think the 1st is like YJH, being a regressor, the 2nd is being a returnee, and the third one---- I don't really know, someone please help ? Edit: forget it, I already reached that part: the 3rd way is being like Nirvana, a reincarnator (a human that isn't a human or something like that). Those are the three ways of survival :3

      • Lucca_Rhys
        Jan 02, 2021

        Hoooo.... Now i just realize why Author always mention the Original Novel Title when introduce Returnee, Regressor and Reincarnator, bacuse its scattered in many parts, i never think it as one of the 'ways' in Original Novel Thanks for enlighten me😆😆😆

    Não sei bem o que escrever depois de terminar está história. São tantos sentimentos na qual me envolve e o final deste épico, sem dúvidas faz vc se sentir parte deste mundo. Me sinto como se meu ser insignificante neste vasto universo esteja sendo combustível para a existência de alguém desconhecido ou quando leio sinto que o "sonho mais antigo" continuará a existir. Só tenho a agradecer aos escritores pois me sinto lisonjeada por ler e fazer parte de Omniscient reader's viewpoint. Muito obrigada!!!!!

    Saya kadang sedih juga saat membaca novel yang sudah berakhir atau dibuang karena lambat laun ceritanya akan terlupakan dan saya sangat membencinya (bahkan saya pun saya tidak rela ketika mengetahui bahwa novel yang saya baca sudah selesai beberapa bulan saya kecewa kenapa Saya tidak menemukannya lebih awal) I am a bit confused as to where the most ancient dreams before Dokja came from and their appearance as a secret plotterPara penulis yang terhormat, saya yakin pekerjaan Anda selanjutnya . (apakah pesan saya sampai ke penulis?)

    It's just amazing, I don't feel like I have related to anyone more. Yet, for me, it's beautiful just to think that there is a non-existential man who thinks the way I do. Overall, I really felt the things he went through.

    I typically don’t write reviews for every piece of literature I’ve read ever since the first time I picked up a book, chiefly because I have always had the thought that the writer or everyone who’d witness my thoughts about it would see it as a fleeting comment that is synonymous, if not completely analogous, with thousands of other utterance other beings (who knows if the only one reading those I’ve read are only humans?) had said before. I write this review earnestly because I have given up on my belief of, ‘it wouldn’t matter for anyone—these words that bubbled in my mind when I immerse myself in the story’. I have found a new meaning to write a review after 552 chapters, in which that I write this only for me—to scribble on a wall with somewhat a broken pencil, but then it’s still from me. The process of writing this matters to me, mayhaps as much as the writers who wrote this webnovel. While there are numerous things I want to write after reading the whole webnovel (in six days alongside my daily 9 hours of sleep time and final exams), I'll just explain the biggest impact of this story to me. The protagonist himself—Kim Dokja—was a man I resented. His thoughts are subconsciously arrogant, and his dependency on tls123’s novel reminded me of an unhealthy obsession. No matter how much I’ve learnt about his background story nor the reasoning behind his actions, I can’t wrap my head around it. His motives are radically naive but the litigations he commits are nonsensically logical. After years of journeying alongside with him and his unsurprisingly uncreative nebula name (metaphorically speaking since he spent, like, years, in the webnovel), I still didn’t get it and his whole personality, until the probably around 500th chapter of the story. His visionary nature, his ‘lying my way through despite me being a terrible liar’ trait, his whole being deliberately erasing himself from what he views as happiness from him. It isn’t an act of martyrdom, and I’ll cut anyone’s head who thinks that it’s admirable. It’s rather cowardly. It’s the inability to find one’s own self-worth and using it as an excuse to delete their own being inside what they think of as the most ideal scenario. It’s unbelievably selfish. It angered me to see him constantly committing indirect and unlabelled suicide for the ‘sake of everyone’. But then, I realise why I loathed him so much. Why I didn’t think that any of the words that described him and his efforts were nearby what is sane. And it’s none other than the fact that I had seen way too much of myself inside him. Now, I don’t think I would be nowhere nearby his accomplishments if I were to be in that kind of world. His planning excessively nature is alien to me, though his view of the world with the bigger picture is not strange to me. The words that went along as something like, “some people who wanted to be saved might’ve said nothing/didn’t say anything.” (forgive for the shittiest accuracy right here, my memory is not really that good) and it struck me to the bone. Him giving excuses for his actions despite the majority of them, if not everything, are nowhere nearby justified. Him doing the same thing again and again despite already understanding bits by bits that his companions only wanted to live and to die alongside with him. Him deliberately ignoring his acknowledgement about those feelings of his companions and stubbornly keeping on doing what he thinks would be ideal for them, because his happiness is within them and not with them. I might not be able to execute things like him, but I definitely would do similar things like what he did, without a second thought. I then despised him even more. I want him to find happiness. I hated him because I’ve found sympathy for him, despite suppressing to pour my empathy for him from the very beginning. The words in his story are still his story, but then I become to seep in them like how I do to literally every other character except him. I come to want to slap the back of his head and give him the worst hug that’ll crush all his bones and grind them with my mighty hands to dust. And then, well. I’m terribly awful at writing anything that’ll describe my feelings, but I think that I’d survive a day or more because of this story. It sounded terribly cliché, the first time I had this thought when I was reading the story, but I can confidently say that I will survive. My personal story isn’t really up for a discussion or publicity, but I want to express how much this obnoxiously long titled webnovel means to me. The background of the story and how well it is being built let me love it. At first, I thought, ‘well, I’m always excessively immersed in the form of literacies I’ve read’. And, well, frankly, yeah. The majority of it is because my brain is just stimulated with the fantastical imaginary world inside this webnovel. It makes me think, ‘well, might as well prepare to bring my cat in a cage tomorrow and prepare to find bugs to kill when I go outside’. And, it’s just the 15% of it—or even lower. The characters and their developments, the constellations that are all rich with personalities. Even sometimes when I find things are just borderline weird, like when Fei Hu and Ranveer Khan suddenly wanted to join Kim Dokja Company on their plan to rescue the fool. The relationships in-between the people and beings, the fact that I yearned to want an ending where they’d finally be happy despite me liking to go against the main characters on every book I’ve read so far. TLDR; I like the webnovel, I guess. It makes me take a look at myself. It makes me want to see the next chapter, again and again, doesn’t matter whether it’ll end badly or not. Oh, wait, I forgot to mention earlier that Dokja’s monologues about loving what he reads are extremely relatable. I wonder if it’ll be nice if I were to born in a new world as a constellation and just try to make the odds go against him, seeing him smile as he finds the things in front of him difficult or something. Maybe, summoning a wave of fire to his legit mother's house or something. I still like seeing him suffer despite after chapters of seeing him suffer. I don’t know how to end this review. I can’t properly say that I am in love because that’s a word too strong yet too weak to describe what I think and feel (the latter being usually very weak) about this webnovel. Thank you for writing this story, I guess. (Also, I am very aware that my comment is in English. After finishing on writing this, I realise that the comment won’t be translated in Korean or anything. Might as well let it be since I lost the value on wanting for this comment to reach out anyone, anyways. Uh... Thank you. Again. You’ve saved a life. Or another life.)

      before actually reading the story, i was scrolling through these comments trying to see if this story is worth reading and all. i came accross your long ass comment and couldn't really grasp what make u sound so immersed in the story. but that also made me super curious since it made me think this would be something I'd never thought, so i start reading. i went to the next chapter and keep pressing the next button. before i even realized i was halfway to the last chapter and i keep reading until i lost track of time, until my head started punding from the lack of sleep. now i finally finished reading until the last chapter, i came back for ur comment and i got so much mixed feelings. i don't think I'll ever find any other webnovel like this one. it is sooo long with so many chapters but i want to keep reading. i want to know what happens next i want to keep reading their story. why did dokja made that decision, what would happen if the characters just accept that kim dokja like the dokkaebi king said, what happen to the scattered soul and so on. well that's a long journey but maybe i can believe in another world, they lived happily in a big house together. the kids grew up and fell in love to each other. sooyoung fight with jonghyuk whenever they had a chance and hyunsung married heewon and had twin children.

        Yes. I am in the Kim Dokja Company cult. This review is meant to trap the readers to read ORV. Our God is Kim Dokja and when he’s too exhausted Yoo Joonghyuk would take the position as the surrogate. Sing Shong deserved like an Oscar nomination or early access ticket to the Pearly Gates for being able to persuade me into joining a seemingly fictional cult (it’s not fictional. What exists in this world isn’t limited to what us humans can witness). Also I think you're dandy for reading ORV. Spread the word to everyone you know. I'm not holding you on a gunpoint but I'll steal your cat if you don't

      Just as the comment below I created an account here to talk to you, that was one hell of a review, I can see how much passion you put into it. It could be interesting if we can discuss about series and stuff in general! Haha is quite incredible how I feel somehow connected to you just by your words... Welp that's it, it would be nice to keep in touch :3 PS: you convinced me to read this novel tho I know I'm going to suffer hahaha

      • blurried
        Dec 30, 2020

        PLEASE you gave me too big of an ego boost but thank you... Glad that my brain juice could convince you to read the entirety of ORV. Little did you know it was all apart of my plan to make people fall into the clutches of my words and suffer in the neverending emotional roller coaster that is ORV. There is a reason why conniving and convincing are spelt similarly. Also, that's great if we can discuss stuff! Disclaimer that I don't have Facebook, but maybe there are chances we can talk on another social media platform!

    is it just me. i've got this urge to write a fan fic to continue the ending coz i'm sooooooooo sad and i'm literally longing for kim dokja's company to hang out, live together, have fun and have normal lives. i've been imagining stuff like kim dokja, losing his memories and being a kid and whenever he grows up, like his birthday, he remembers part of his life and then he got this constant pain coz he's soul is not complete yet UGHHHHHHHH I SRSLY WANNA DO A FANFIC

    Definitely one of the best webnovel I've ever read. Though I have read some novels before but I've never even bothered to leave a review behind. But the way the story is developed and the curiosity it left at the end really do make it one of the best novels. Definitely commended.

I just finish the novel. And holy moly this novel is too awesome. Too much rollercoster of emotion, they messed up my feelings. Even, in some part of the novel I didn't know if I want to cry, smile, scream or all of them. At first I don't really trust han so-yoong but damn gurl after so many up and down YooKimHan is truly fantastic trio

I totally made an account just for this review. I started reading 11 days ago because the webtoon is so slow but I didn't expect this to hurt me as much as it did. Thank you to the authors for making such an expressive and painfully immersive story! I was crying the last fifty chapters and I genuinely felt for these characters. I am amazed at how meta this story is. I really enjoyed how so many of the world myths were conveyed and how humanly flawed all these characters were. There are so many scenes of vomiting blood and all their struggles of going beyond all the most miserable odds, and I enjoyed how it is abundantly clear that yes, they have done impossible things but also it took a really big toll on them. Some scenes are so heartbreaking, and also some scenes have you laughing hysterically through your tears. Very very very recommended.

Hi2003

This.. this was genuinely the most beautiful novel I have ever read. It is heartbreaking yet at the same time so enduring. I am tearing up even as I write this review after reading ch 516. The “protagonist” is flawed in many ways. He is not your typical op character that always does the right thing and has a clean and good conscience. But he knows what he wants and he’ll do whatever it is to accomplish it especially if it’s for his companions and that is the exact reason why I love his character and why I’m crying right now. Honestly I can’t recommend this enough, it’s definitely a page turner and you’ll be sure to enjoy it.

The story is absolutely amazing. It has moments where you can feel happy or understand there sorrow. It's unique from all the other novels I read and I really do love it and I'm sad that there isn't more. Once again I do recommend and besides there is a webtoon thats posting as well.

It really is an epic story, I didn't think I could live and feel like I was inside a novel but it happened. I loved all the characters, and I'm not going to lie I cried a lot while witnessing the sorrow they experienced . I think it's my favorite novel ever.

I just finished reading this and I honestly can't believe it's over. I soo want to know what else happens.
How does Kim Dok Ja wake up?
What happens after he wakes up?
Does Yoo Jung Hyuk never get the ◼️◼️? How is Kim dokja's condition after spending 30,000 years all alone?
What happens to the 4th wall now?
Where is Kim dokja's mom?
Does Kim Dok Ja remember each and every single detail... like is he completely utterly back?
Is Gong Pil Do okay leaving his children in the other worldline?
How is Uriel, the abysal black glam dragon, Son wo Kong and the other constellations, the giant and small person pair, ?
Do the members get pissed off at Kim Dok Ja for being sacrificing himself yet again and eventually forgive him as they always do?
Do they all get to live in a big house together happily, go camping near beaches and enjoy the post-scenario life?

But.. these questions can never be answered now. I felt somewhat empty after this ending, but I couldn't argue with it as it was a perfect for this novel. After a few months, when I'm like more normal, I will re-read this, like how his mom said. And then I shall read it again. And that's only possible because I've grown to love this story. No matter how frustrated I feel, wanting to know what happens after, I guess, I should just believe that these characters will continue to live on happily in their story.

Thank you to the translators for all the hardwork, I'm so glad I could read this beautiful story.

The story is different than in any other novels you can find, which is amazing, but it starts becoming the problem past chapter 400. As much as I read 170 chapters in 2 days, past 400 I could barely do 10 without feeling tired. It gets super messy and the fight scenes are just "Story/Fable has began it's storytelling" without any actual interesting points or thinking anymore, lacking finesse. Would probably finish it anyways if not for wiki spoiling the ending, reached 470th chapter anyways.

Still recommend reading with 4/5 stars, but to me, it just felt like the author got overwhelmed by his own story towards the end.

This novel really sucked me right into it. One of the few web novels to make me so emotional while reading it; following the struggles of the mc and the world building expanding. Best part for me was the chemistry between the two main mcs. Also, while I get the ending, I can’t help but wish there was more.

All I'm going to say is this novel is flawless (in my opinion) if u believe otherwise @ me. The writing, the character development, the comedy, the feeling that he is never too OP, and his genuine struggles, and his ability to logically prepare solutions with the information he has from the novel. I wiould recommend this to every and anyone looking for a great read.
