Publisher's Summary

After one too many failed inventions, Julian has hit rock bottom.

Summoned to another world where gods and monsters roam, Julian continues his streak of bad luck. Rather than touching the Godcore directly, he let his smartphone absorb it. Now, he's got to figure out how to make the Godcore and his phone work together to help the people who summoned him survive their upcoming annihilation by the mad God of Chains.

He's going to have to innovate his way out of his bad luck. Good thing Julian has a plan - he's going to build a factory in a medieval world.

New beginnings. Same people.

I have only gotten to ch 13, and the main female character is the worst. She summons the MC, threatens him, blame him for things that clearly weren't his fault (always in hindsight), and he took an arrow to save someone life. If the MC doesn't stand up for himself by the end of this book, I will be dropping this series. No point in following someone who bends over at every cough in his direction.

Edit: so, after finishing the book, the MC does change slightly. Just enough to see if book 2 will be any good. The girl is still the worst part of this book. I think the author was attempting a tsundere type character.

The pop-culture puns make the story!

the characters are believable and real and the story is interesting with a believably flawed hero. I can't wait for the next book.

it is Factorio

the book covers what amounts to the first hour or so of gameplay if Factorio had a storyline.

Not as bad as I thought it would be.

The story is ok, and I really like the concept the author has going. So it’s definitely worth a buying the second book. There were some complaints about the female main character from some of the other reviewers that seem short-sighted to me. I’m sure anyone would react that way in that situation. There was a moment where it seemed a bit extreme, but after a bit later it explains the situation and it makes sense.

The MC wasn’t terrible, but there was two moments in the story where I wish I had the power to strangle a fictional character.

I haven’t heard any books narrated by Christopher but does a more than adequate job of narrating this title.

If the summary is sounds interesting to you, I recommend you give it a try.

I’d say the only true flaw of this book is the length.
Cruelly short.

It scratched the itch.

I enjoyed the story. For the most part the MC reacted like a dude that reads. Not too smart, but enough to be dangerous, and just overwhelmed enough that it takes a minute to get things right. Overall, It was fun.

No more weak mc's

A really hard listen. the main character is just another awkward 20 something white guy in a field filled with them. A truly tired idea

BETA mc

The whole time the MC was weak willed and had no self-esteem. Was pushed around by bossy mean trope of a female character who verbally abused him the whole book even when he did nothing wrong. Had potential but alas it was wasted.

Fun time.

The story is decent. The narrator is okay. However it desperately needs a sound engineer. On multiple occasions the sound will rise or drop and massive tone shifts. This doesn't make the experience horrible but jaring at times.

Dueling betas?

Love the story concept, but was taken aback by ultra cringey exchanges between MC and other characters who have very misplaced submissive/beta exchanges with one another. It wouldn’t be so noteworthy, but it happens in almost every chapter.
