This book is worth downloading. It's original, appealing to both genders, intriguing and funny. I hope this is the beginning of a series, because I'm looking forward to more Legion stories.
The book was great. It has a Dan Brown feeling while reading. I could see this being a great TV show... with re-occuring characters popping up randomly.
Just a good story. hopefully we will see more.
I'm a technician that does a lot of driving for his job. I use the "windshield" time to listen to audiobooks.
That's my way of saying better than 4 starts but not quite 5. It's short at just 2 hours, but worth listening to. An original story that has me wondering if there are more Legion stories. I very much enjoyed it.
Interesting, entertaining, refreshing
The new twist on the investigator/genius character
The addition to a character half way through the story.
He is everyone you need.
Wish this was a longer story...
This is truly a great piece from Brandon Sanderson. We've enjoyed all his books so far. I must say, though, that this is far and away my favorite. The short format really tightens up his writing. Actually, I'm not real sure if it's the shorter format or the modern setting. Whichever it is, it really hit the mark! I truly hope this is just the forerunner to a possible full length book or series as I'm terribly curious to find out more about Mr. Leeds!
A boy with multiple personalities (imaginary "friends"), each with amazing abilities, sells himself to those who can use his assistance. Does the boy have a mental disease or mental superpowers? Both, it seems. In this two-hour story, he is hired to find a camera which might have taken pictures from the past. All these threads sound fascinating, yet this story was only "okay" to me. The pieces were there, but came together in a way to only partly grab my interest. The main character never became someone I truly cared about, even though his uniqueness piqued my interest.
After reading Mistborn, I was expecting more from Brandon Sanderson.
The narrator was good, but the overall story wasn't anything memorable. It's basically a book about a guy with imaginary friends and some kind of camera that could take pictures of past events.
I think the book would have been more interesting if all the characters were separate, real people not inside his mind. To me, it just makes the main character seem like a delusional mental patient.
Narrator, yes. Author, no.
This may sound silly to some, but my brain became quickly distracted by the gross repetition of the word "said," and I couldn't concentrate on the plot. "He 'said', Monica 'said', I 'said'...said, said, said.
With all the verbs in the English language, why would anyone release a story highlighting a character's multiple personalities, journey through their dialogue...and NEVER use a synonym for the word "said"? Very strange. I did not enjoy this read at all.
Long time LibraryThing member. Love to read a variety of books, usually more than one at a time.
Certain friends, yes, I would. The main character is fascinating, and all of the characters in his head are as well formed and shaped as he is. Some of the story itself felt rushed and incomplete, but it was good as far as it went.
Well now, that would just be rude and arrogant, don't you think? It isn't my creation.
Very much so, in fact, I hope Mr. Sanderson will come back to this character.
Boring story, told in the style of a sixties tv show, all silly asides and unfunny nudges.
The characters are all quick sketches. Best for children
Not if this is his style
Pure unforgivable dreck
