    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.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Legion to be better than the print version?

    Legion is an excellent story, well written and very well told. The only issue I had with the story was that it was too short. (that's what you get for free, right?)
    I finished listening, and immediately searched audible for other stories written by Brandon Sanderson. I Especially enjoyed the premise of multiple personalities each with their own skill set. The story is engrossing, and even funny at times.
    I eagerly await another in what I hope is a long run of these Legion stories


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I prefer longer books but I did listen to this in one sitting.

    On a brisk autumn day, a 13-year-old boy stands on the shores of the gray Atlantic, near a silent amusement park and a fading ocean resort called the Alhambra. The past has driven Jack Sawyer here: His father is gone, his mother is dying, and the world no longer makes sense. But for Jack everything is about to change. For he has been chosen to make a journey back across America - and into another realm. One of the most influential and heralded works of fantasy ever written, The Talisman is an extraordinary novel of loyalty, awakening, terror, and mystery.

    They were just kids when they stumbled upon the horror of their hometown. Now, as adults, none of them can withstand the force that has drawn them all back to Derry, Maine, to face the nightmare without end, and the evil without a name.
