I am really struggling with the low expectations in the litRPG genre. This is a mediocre book that currently has a 4.27 rating on Goodreads.com. Compared to most litRPG it pretty much deserves that rating but then litRPG is infested by individuals who think they can turn their favorite RPG ideas into books without actually learning how to write. The good: The author tells the story well. The bad: The author doesn't plot his book well, doesn't explain the inexplicable attraction females have to the mechanical man MC and makes his MC too naive (especially since the MC lived an entire lifetime before being made a mechanical man). Plot: So the author begins the book with a lot of set up but he handles that well. Eventually, however, the book focuses in on the MC, a mechanical man, wanting to be recognized as a sentient being and not property. To do this he agrees to compete for a grant for the university that currently owns him. However, this book ends with the MC making virtually no headway on that goal. Sure, the MC makes general headway by learning skills and leveling up a couple times but then the book ends. In essence the author really wants to go into endless detail about the many possibilities for development facing his MC at the expense of telling a story with a beginning, middle and END. I was shocked to learn the paperback edition was 420 pages long given how little the story advanced. In fact I only looked at the page count because I was expecting it to be around 150. Females: I have never encountered a story where a human found an automaton sexually attractive without that automaton appearing human. For two females to find the MC, a wood automaton at the time, attractive because he has abs, is ridiculous. Further it doesn't benefit the story and is an example the author lacking a focus on just what story he is trying to tell. Naivety: The author gives the MC countless reasons not to trust the gnomes that purportedly own him. Essentially the gnome researchers are: good guy leader, neutral follower, evil follower, all one dimensional. The evil follower constantly says things like: let's just take the MC apart and learn that way. But the good guy and neutral guy constantly let slip indications that they only think of the MC as property in spite of dangling freedom in front of him. Basically, the author gives the MC no real reason to trust these gnomes and yet the MC constantly tells them everything they want to know and goes along with their plans because of the (apparently hollow) promises the gnomes make. Worse, when the MC wants to save his friend's life they openly treat the MC as property and yet the MC somehow fails to recognize this, returning to the university voluntarily and accepting punishment rather than pointing out that if the gnomes actually thought of him as an individual they were the ones in the wrong. The story [with a complete disregard for spoilers since I don't believe this story can be spoiled]: A human from our world is reincarnated in an ancient device called a mechanical man. This is done by gnomes at a university who agree, tentatively, to recognize the MC, Repair, as a sentient being. As a result, although legally the property of the university, Repair is allowed to go looking for work. What Repair finds is dungeon diving with a goblin, Grebo. This the gives the MC and Grebo a start at leveling up and collecting coin. However, a group of goblins is competing with the gnome university for funding so those goblins jump Repair and Grebo. Repair fixes himself but Grebo has been stabbed with a cursed knife. The curse removing plants are in a mine on the third level of the dungeon. Repair and Grebo hadn't gone past the second level but Repair up grades to an iron exterior and heads to level 3. However, to do this Repair must escape from the gnomes since they don't value goblins and are concerned Repair will get destroyed on level 3. Repair succeeds on level 3 and also discovers evidence of something sinister happening in the dungeon. Bottom line: Complete lack of story resolution, due in large part to a lack of focus by the author on just what story he is telling and some rather ridiculous story choices with how females treat the MC and the MC's naivety. However, all that is pretty standard in litRPG and the writing is otherwise decent.

    Mc is incompetent This book damn near gave me an ulcer from how incompetent the mc is. Its like the author told the story without taking into consideration the mc's skill and maturity. He was like a graceless blind and deaf buffoon the entire story, and he's way too innocent and Naive for a 40 something year old. Books should be stress relieving not inducing.

    Good I really liked this book and I think it has a ton of potential. But the author really likes hardcore mode and really makes his characters work for everything they get sometimes to the point of almost dying multiple times. Not that it’s a bad thing it’s just a recurring theme throughout all of his collected works. Overall this is a really solid opening to a new series with a lot of new and interesting possibilities for our not so human MC.

Overall this is a really solid opening to a new series with a lot of new and interesting possibilities for our not so human MC. I find his class and the way his body uses his class skills to be very interesting. I would like to see him use his head more instead of going into situations half cocked, but I think he has the potential to really be an interesting character. So, in closing I would say that I recommend this book and that I am looking forward to the next one in the series.

    2-3 stars. Dying the MC gets the chance to be reborn. He decides himself to be a metalman. (obscure reasoning - but well he just died and may be not really awake). The metal man idea is nice, the world does feel a bit superficial. Gnomes are like the WoW-gnomes. Average litrpg - some nice ideas but overall i don't feel very attached to the characters and the fact the MC is a metal does not help to identify with him. A real minus for me are the first and the last chapter as they describe something 2-3 stars. Dying the MC gets the chance to be reborn. He decides himself to be a metalman.

Yeah i see it is how the metal mans hull is retrieved but hinting on a story that is not concluded in this book and is not even mentioned throughout the first book till the last chapter does not appeal to me. Not sure if i will read the next of this series.

    I came back to do a review of this after losing interest in the second book at about the 1/3 mark. This book is well written, but I realized upon starting the sequel that I really didn't care what happened. This is the kiss of death for a series, and I'm just dropping out of this one earlier than I have for some series in the past. I can't really put my finger on it; I'm just not invested in the characters, even though it seems like there's a reasonably deep background for the plot.

Anything less than 5 stars is petty criticism from someone incapable of even doing the job let alone doing a better one. So in respect for the author and their work, I am going to start pasting this along with a generic review I found somewhere. “This was a fun book. I am glad that I read it. You should try it too.” Now, since I have to keep explaining myself to people who don't like my reviews, I guess some clarification is in order. 1. I am 100% against criticism for works of art. Art is subjective, meaning reviews are irrelevant. The observer's opinion is only relevant to the observer. It is my belief that regardless of what others might say, I have to experience the art for myself. 2. I read upwards of 20 books a month. The $10/month I spend on K U, feels like I am cheating the authors. But since I can't afford 20 books a month if I were to purchase them directly, all I can offer is a positive review. That leads us to the final point. 3. If I get to the end of a book, then it was worth my time. I give those books 5 stars because it helps the author get exposure. That is the only reason I write reviews at all. I understand that people are people and they are going to do what they do regardless of my stance. I know the way that I review books upsets some people. I am sorry they feel that way but as many have said, they will just ignore my review going forward. In fact, if you made it this far through my review, you should definitely read the book and completely ignore all of the reviews here. You are a much better judge of what you will like than anyone here. Cheers

Why would the MC choose to be an artificial being with who can’t eat, sleep or have sex just because he wants to craft things. I mean there are plenty of beings that can craft things. When he wakes up he finds out that his new body is the property of gnomes. These gnomes clearly consider him to be a thing and not a person,and threaten him on multiple occasions. They even try to kidnap him when he’s trying to save the life of his only friend. Yet he agrees to tell them everything he knows about his powers and returns to them voluntarily. He’s an idiot. On time of that, the leveling system is completely unbalanced. He has to fight these hard battles against higher level monsters for 15 EXP. every level the EXP he needs triples and he only gets 1 stat point per level. The author made some very unfortunate choices when writing this book.

Repair also seems to be popular with the ladies but that may be a dead end as his token body is not ..... Equipped. Think Ken doll. Should be fun watching him overcome that obstacle. The book was good but not overly so. It was a bit dry but enjoyable. I will read the second book and see if it is any better.

    A Solid Book I liked this novel on quite a few fronts: the characters felt deep, as did the world; the plot was fun and well constructed; the writing is well done and there isn’t an abundance of typos. What detracted from my enjoyment: the story’s main problem had several other much simpler solutions that never occurred to the MC. None of the other solutions would have been a fun read, but knowing how easy it would have been to save the day just... takes away from the experience.

None of the other solutions would have been a fun read, but knowing how easy it would have been to save the day just... takes away from the experience. So, my paltry advice to the author: try to lock those holes down. If the main antagonist is a lack of money (as it boiled down to here), don’t have insanely wealthy folks on the side of the protagonist. Overall: a solid book I can recommend. I will definitely continue the series.

    Oh hey, a book that has a character that isn't human :O. Ok, he's still human shaped, but the biology (or lack there of) here does make it different enough that it's not just a pointy eared human situation. In general, it's a good start to a series. The way his body can change with the materials available allows for some interesting directions this can go. The dungeon it's self is kind of meh, not enough information on how all that works.

The guild quest system is kind of confusing as well, why do they want any given quest completed?

    Book one First I’d like to say that I really enjoyed this story. However it has problems: Mistakes: Before the 15% mark there is quite a bit of different colored print. There are a couple of mistakes as well, extra words in a couple of sentences. There is also an entire page that had just about every mistake that you can make in writing. Also moles have legs not arms. Go back and fix the mistakes and this is easily a 4.5 star book.

    Metal man with a heart I had a great time with R. A. Meija's new book. Fun and a bit light-hearted (it could have been grim). It looks suitable for a teen audience. I liked the nods to other authors in the genre and their bacon addiction. Warcraft's goblins and gnomes are the main races showcased. I'm happy when goblins are major characters. I had a great time with the adventure with Repair and look forward to seeing where the author takes it from here. It works well as a standalone novel as well Metal man with a heart I had a great time with R. A. Meija's new book. Fun and a bit light-hearted (it could have been grim).

    A decent start. It's odd to me that people so strongly identify sexless, androgynous bodies with specific genders. The MC clearly still has a strong male identity even after conversion into a purely robotic form, which is fine, but the fact that said robot still flirts and goes on dates and engages in locker room talk is a solid 'meh' from me. It seems somewhat unnecessary, especially since it's treated as a given rather than something the protagonist spends much time reconsidering, despite the A decent start.

    This will be short. This book might get better in later chapters, but I'm not willing to go on. In my eyes it suffers from two basic issues. 1. Once again, the MC is drifting. He has no aim or purpose, and I can't wait five more chapters for him to discover the plot. 2. The transition to a non-human avatar failed to take its time to convey how alienating it would feel. The MC is taking way too much in stride. I didn't buy it. And that totally killed the book for me. This will be short. This book might get better in later chapters, but I'm not willing to go on.

    Lacks inventiveness When I was first reading this book and it's description, I was really looking forward to an intelligent engineer finding ways to create clever tools to his problems. Instead the author tries to be clever but does not even try to expand beyond amateurish magic system and dull world building. The MC is stupid and has little to no creativity and the world is so simple and cliched, it was painful.

    A great start! This starts out like many other stories in this genre. However, I soon realized, that despite the typical start, that this would not be the typical Litrpg story. The mc had an interesting and unusual race and class. (I’m trying really, really hard to avoid spoilers.) This is a fun addition to the genre and I can’t wait for the second book.

    Heavy Metal What a cracker. An MC with a difference. So many LitRPG books have become so similar it’s hard to remember which is which. A whole book to reach just level 4. No OP MC here. Repair will be easy to recall and I look forward to the next in this series. Well done Mr Mejia.

At times the protagonist seemed underpowered, but the author never gave into a "deus ex machina" solution. Cleverness, and good old fashioned grinding came to the rescue. I eagerly await book two!

    On goes above this one is bad! So bad! Horrible writing, horrible character development, horrible world building and horribly unbalanced combat. This one sucks at all of it. Also after reading over half this book I felt that no story progression had been made. Do not read this, it is a complete waste of time.

    Happy reading Some literature makes the reader feel "at risk", or rather it does for those who read for entertainment and have a strong aversion to crude language, graphic sex, gore, sadism, masochism, and so forth. Mejia adds some coarse humor but no worse. His writing is very entertaining and enjoyable. I'm delighted to have discovered him. Hope you are too. *smile* Happy reading Some literature makes the reader feel "at risk", or rather it does for those who read for entertainment and have a strong aversion to crude language, graphic sex, gore, sadism, masochism, and so forth.

    Was ok It was ok. Not a bad plot, not a bad pace, but was missing something? Never really bonded with the MC, felt a bit too robotic (haha). Even if that was the intent, it created a lack of empathy. Skill descriptions were bulkier than they needed to be, and repeatedly used, felt like filler.

    Interesting read Completely different perspective on a little book. I never thought about what it would be like as a artificial lifeform. Good char development. New magic system so lots of new and different ideas. As well as interesting race interactions. Completely worth buying and reading!

    Excellent... Excellent book. I've read other books by Mejia, and while they were ok. I can really see the growth he's made as an author with this book. I loved the premise, and while gnomes may rule I found myself rather annoyed with them in this book. Either way an excellent new playable race, that should be interesting for many books to come. I look forward to more. Excellent... Excellent book. I've read other books by Mejia, and while they were ok. I can really see the growth he's made as an author with this book.
