    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.

    "Great story, not so great narrator"
    Overall

    The rating is for the books only. Not the narration. This series is one of my all time favorites, and I was ecstatic when I saw that the books had FINALLY been "audiblized!" Unfortunately, the narrator does such a horrible job, I actually have a hard time listening to them. She makes no real attempt to give the characters their own voice, and here dictation is so full of extra pauses, it makes the whole book sound like one big question. Another reviewer compared her pauses to the way William Shatner used to add pauses to his lines in Star Trek. This is WAY worse. Also, I know that the way I pronounce names in my head when I read a book is my own interpretation, but I would be very suprised to find that Elizabeth Moon actually meant PAK's name to be pronounced "POX" instead of "Packs." Oh well. I guess I'll have to read it to myself (again!) to be totally satisfied!
