Description

He was given another chance at life and from the infinite possibilities available, he chose to come back as a mechanical man, a Metalman, named Repair. Now he has to contend with a research lab full of gnomes who say he owes them for bringing him back from death, a strange city that is going through a magical industrial revolution, and adversaries that want to see him broken into pieces.

Full of action, adventure, and of course crafting, join Repair on his adventure through this strange fantasy world where magic and technology meet. He’ll dive into the city’s dungeon to kill monsters for XP, and gather resources to figure out the solutions to his problems. Because if he doesn’t become more powerful, he’ll not only lose his freedom, but the life of his friend. 

The Mechanical Crafter is a LitRPG adventure.

This is bad

I from the beginning hated the main character as well as him being annoying and incompetent. I would not recommend listening to this. the narrator did a good enough job of not making me go to sleep.

Meh got extra meh.

The story is very bland. MC jumps around in direction so much you lose investment in the story. Could have been good but an supposed intelligent character decides to live as a barbarian. Also not sure on the choice of a female VA. MC and most characters are male. She is also very soft spoken so it makes it hard to hear her sometimes.

Meh-

main character seemed wooden (pardon the pun) where there should be drive acts like a passive participant and the world hollow. things got a little better at the end. one good thing is this is the first litrpg that successfully captured different interest levels from different players. the gob was great.

Please buy this book

I really enjoyed this novel. I have been following Mejia for a while and I consider this to be his breakthrough novel. I am happy to see him come into his own. His earlier work was lacking when it came to the world building and character motivations. Here the world is fully formed and all the characters, not just the MC, had distinct personalities and quirks. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed this novel. It kept us company through a recent road trip. Kudos to you Mejia and welcome to my must buy list.

Nope

Just not into the whole "the MC is a good guy so it's excusable to have this level of dumb logic." So he justifies and then congratulates a kid who stole from him so he could afford enough to join a guild of people who's class is LITERALLY scavenges off others' kills while they are busy or overwhelmed. They get exp for it and pretty much make dungeon diving awful. 1. The guild is official, allowed, and openly? Respected. 2. The kid wanted you dead 2 seconds ago and is smarter then most adults. 3. This is played off as cute and acceptable. 5 chapters later and he is still justifying and supporting this kid's idiotic sociopathy.

A relevant story considering

This is a clever sort of story in the vein of Aesop stories considering everything that's going on at this time with sex skin color Social status it shows the problems that we are having in a very interesting way and is something that everyone should read

A Fresh LitRPG

This is an enjoyable listen with a fresh take on the genre. While the common tropes are there it is different enough not to blend into the background of a genre full of new authors. The story is well read and acted.

Great concept but missed the mark

Love the premise of a non-biological character, especially a crafter. The book, however, has some issues... Weird dungeon layout. The dungeon is only basically described and seems weirdly small or compressed with only minimal descriptions. The part of the book I listened to only had the dungeon and the starting city as locals, and neither seemed to have much personality. One good creative twist for the dungeon, but it ended up making me feel kind of sad for the creatures. The main character... the main character creates story elements by being dumb. Common problem in litrpg, but with about three hours left in the book, I had to stop listening out of frustration. Without having too many spoilers, there was a tense situation where the MC starts kicking things and awkwardly bumbling around to the point where it's not believable. The MC doesn't strategize very well, roams around without a plan, and is just unbelievably negligent especially for someone that supposedly has a gaming background. The characters were a bit one dimensional, the leveling is not very fulfilling or rewarding, the world is sterile, to the point where I didn't bother finishing the last few hours of the book... Narration is ok with the exception of the word "iron" being weirdly pronounced "eye-ron" dozens of times. It got to the point where the mispronunciation started pulling me out of the story. The book might be one to risk a credit on to check out the unique character which is why I gave it two stars, but I'll be avoiding the series from here on out.

It's a great adventure!

I was impressed with the story. I wish it had more content but hopefully more will come soon. I enjoyed the characters. The social inequalities give something to strive for. I hope to see much more from this series!!

That's hardly crafting

Calling 3D printing, 'crafting' is like making a hot pocket in a microwave and calling it cooking. I was hoping he'd end up being more creative. The most I saw him craft was bend a few screws together. Setting up traps is hardly crafting.

eh Interesting idea, but

MC makes stupid little mistakes, and no understanding of "loyalty". The scene where he's told to stop his repair buisness, decides to "be smart and surrvive" and then QUESTIONS the kidnapper, after being maimed by this kidnapper, and the scene where his goblin friend tells him he "betrayed" him (he wasn't his friend yet, it's no different them him trying to take the core when they 1st met.) are just too dumb.
