    Stephen Leeds, AKA 'Legion,' is a man whose unique mental condition allows him to generate a multitude of personae: hallucinatory entities with a wide variety of personal characteristics and a vast array of highly specialized skills. As the story begins, Leeds and his 'aspects' are drawn into the search for the missing Balubal Razon, inventor of a camera whose astonishing properties could alter our understanding of human history and change the very structure of society.

    Story
    Would you try another book from Brandon Sanderson and/or Oliver Wyman?

    Yes, but only based upon other reviews I have read. Otherwise Sanderson would be on my Do Not Read list. Oliver Wyman did the best with what he had to work with.


    What could Brandon Sanderson have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Nothing. I did not embrace the premise of the main character arguing with hallucinated entities.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Oliver Wyman?

    No one. Oliver's mistake was to narrate this boring book. This question implies the narrator was the problem which is not fair to Oliver Wyman.


    Any additional comments?

    My wife and I listened to 45 minutes of the book and decided to stop wasting our time.

    The premise of the book's characters being hallucinations is beyond me. The whole reality of the story fell into question and I could not relate it. Since the character building at the beginning dragged out we became bored with the book after 20 minutes. I still gave the author more time to redeem the story but just could not take any more at 45 minutes.

    I am glad so many other reviewers enjoyed the book. Perhaps I will give it another try in a few years.
