Publisher's Summary

Brandon Sanderson is one of the most significant fantasists to enter the field in a good many years. His ambitious, multi-volume epics (Mistborn, The Stormlight Archive) and his stellar continuation of Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series have earned both critical acclaim and a substantial popular following. In Legion, a distinctly contemporary novella filled with suspense, humor, and an endless flow of invention, Sanderson reveals a startling new facet of his singular narrative talent, read by Audie Award-winning narrator Oliver Wyman.

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. The action ranges from the familiar environs of America to the ancient, divided city of Jerusalem. Along the way, Sanderson touches on a formidable assortment of complex questions: the nature of time, the mysteries of the human mind, the potential uses of technology, and the volatile connection between politics and faith. Resonant, intelligent, and thoroughly absorbing, Legion is a provocative entertainment from a writer of great originality and seemingly limitless gifts.

    Story
    "wonderful, witty listen"
    Where does Legion rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This was my first fiction audiobook but I loved it. I've now tried other fiction audiobooks and only one, The Golden Notebook, has pleased me more than Lesion.


    What other book might you compare Legion to and why?

    Maybe one of Winterson's young adult books. Very smart, very accessible. This was, however, way funnier.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    This whole book was good. The airplane scene was funny and smart.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed, I immediately searched for more books by the author upon finishing, I was so pleased the author wrote this novella

    No, but I would listen to him again.

    "Interesting Concept"

    I found this short story fascinating. I would really like to see more in about this same character in the future. It was very well written and for as short as it is, it was very well fleshed out. The whole concept behind the story I found very novel. I don't think I've ready anything before that matches it. I thought the narrator did a very good job.

    "Surprisingly Awesome."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely. I'm somewhat of a difficult reader to impress in the short term. I usually take at least 1-1.5 books in a series before I start to love a character. I was hooked on this one after an hour of listening. It's a very short read, but it does not suffer from it.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    ....All of them?


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I think it might be during the gun fight.

    "Good old Sanderson!"

    Since it's the first contemporary work of Sanderson's that I've tried, I didn't know what to expect. I knew to expect something much shorter than his 500+ page behemoths, but not much beyond that.

    And what a pleasant surprise! Legion is a schizophrenic and knows it. Not only that, he uses his "hallucinations" to help him in detective work, which is interesting and fun. He has a dark-ish sort of humor that is fun to listen to in audio format, and each of the characters (hallucinatory or otherwise) has an individual character and voice that makes them easily recognizeable.

    There isn't much that I can really say about it other than that it was really great. Sanderson proves once again that he is one of the best writers around now, not just in the Fantasy genre.
