I love the premise where a super genius creates hallucinations to help him track, categorize and process the vast amounts of knowledge that he has. The characters (including the hallucinations) are interesting, funny and quirky and combined with great writing it makes for a great base but in the end it’s a short story and in this case it’s just too short of a story to deliver a great product.
Mr. Wyman does a great job with all the characters.
The protagonist, Stephen, has a strange mental condition that causes him to (allows him to) hallucinate various persons with a wide range of knowledge and personalities. He is a bit of recluse, for obvious reasons such as talking to people others cannot see, but also seems very bright, not least because his hallucinations are often experts at something or other.
So, this is a short (2 hour audiobook), bizarre, unique, interesting, and creative little fantasy/action story in which Stephen is introduced along with a number of his hallucinatory personas. It becomes action packed because of course there's some stolen technology and some terrorist types and so forth.
It was an enjoyable listen (I listened via Audible) and I will probably read or listen to later installments in the series. The author's creativity and imagination really come through in this one. The narrator did a good job and did not seem to have any annoying quirks.
Psychotic, funny, explorer
Reminded me of the Jump series
No, it was my first. Very easy to listen too. Well done.
I did ... it is rather short.
A nice little short story with a unique and interesting premise. Nothing too developed, because of the length, but fun for what it is. I read the sequel with enthusiasm and will look out for the first. Fans of the author should certainly take the time to go through Legion.
kept me interested throughout w/ interesting humor and stories. great interaction between the aspects and an intriguing storyline
Fantasy fanatic, sci fi dabbler
I'm not usually one for short stories, but this one really drew me in. I won't spoil the concept for you, other than to say it makes for an interesting, flawed and entertaining character. I would love to read a full length novel, but this is still a satisfying listen.
