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.

    "great story"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    It's a short, quick, fascinating story delving into the psyche of the mind.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Legion?

    All along the way trying to figure out the mind of the central character.


    Which character – as performed by Oliver Wyman – was your favorite?

    The main character.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    NA


    Any additional comments?

    Like others who have read it, it was too short. This is something that definitely needs to be developed into a full novel.

    "a great listen"
    Where does Legion rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is the first book I have listened to on Audible. I thought the story was unique and well formulated and the narration added an amazing flavor.

    "Very Unique Story"
    What did you love best about Legion?

    I loved the concept of the story, taking pictures of the past is really a neat idea.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Legion?

    I really liked how the main character would have new aspects show up when he needed new information to help him out.


    What does Oliver Wyman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He did a good job of giving the various characters life and their own voices.

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

    I don't own a copy of the print version, nor do I really plan to get one, so I don't really know.


    What other book might you compare Legion to and why?

    It's like a cross between Nancy Drew and The Bell Jar. kinda sorta


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

    Yes very much so. I didn't like having to stop half way through and start again later


    Any additional comments?

    A wonderful tale, as many of Brandon Sanderson's books are.

    "It is a thought more than story!"

    I'm not sure if this is a fantasy or flash of thoughts that the writer had and tried to put in words! To help the reader of this review, then if you like to hear couple of new ideas (two to be exact) then I can put them now in two sentences and you may skip on the story!

    "Good book, but too short."
    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I would have to say JC b/c he knows his combat weapons and tactics. And also he's kinda the comic relief of the bunch.


    Have you listened to any of Oliver Wyman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yeah, that's one of the reasons why i gave this book a try. To me I think he always does a good job.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    One Camera... One mission... Multiple personae...


    Any additional comments?

    Even though the book was free I would have paid to listen to and interesting story like this. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes a good short story.

    "Powerful short Story"

    This is one of the most powerful short stories that I have ever read. Brandon Sanderson was already one of my favorite authors, but this story blew even me away.
    Some of the things that were interesting to me:

    The hints of the main character's back story.
    The exploration of multiple personalities in one person.
    The interaction between faith and science.

    The last one of these is the most fascination to me. As a man of faith myself I have read books that tackle the seeming discrepancy between science and faith, but none which do it so powerfully.

    And, since this book is free, You should definitely get it.
    It will not be a waste of your time.
