    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.

    Not too long from today, a new, highly contagious virus makes its way across the globe. Most who get sick experience nothing worse than flu, fever, and headaches. But for the unlucky one percent - and nearly five million souls in the United States alone - the disease causes "Lock In": Victims fully awake and aware, but unable to move or respond to stimulus. The disease affects young, old, rich, poor, people of every color and creed. The world changes to meet the challenge.

    Having never read anything by Scalzi, i chose this book because of the narrator.
    I was pleasantly surprised by how much i enjoyed the book.
    "Haydens Syndrome" was an interesting twist on the police procedural type of book, it really kept the book fresh and interesting.
    Well worth the credit!

    Sam Vimes is on a well-deserved holiday. But for the commander of the City Watch, a vacation in the country is anything but relaxing. The balls, the teas, the muck - not to mention all that fresh air and birdsong - are more than a bit taxing on a cynical city-born and -bred copper. Yet a policeman will find a crime anywhere if he decides to look hard enough, and it’s not long before a body is discovered, and Sam - out of his jurisdiction, out of his element, and out of bacon sandwiches (thanks to his well-meaning wife) - must rely on his instincts, guile, and street smarts to see justice done.

    What made the experience of listening to Snuff the most enjoyable?

    Excellent narration and a good story


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Vimes, the quirky, dry, British humor, had me laughing out loud a number of times throughout.


    Who was the most memorable character of Snuff and why?

    Willikins the manservant/bodyguard/friend of Vimes.
    The character seemed like someone I'd like to know in real life.

    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.
