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
    "Bizarre and fascinating"

    The protagonist, Stephen, has a strange mental condition that causes him to (allows him to) hallucinate various persons with a wide range of knowledge and personalities. He is a bit of recluse, for obvious reasons such as talking to people others cannot see, but also seems very bright, not least because his hallucinations are often experts at something or other.

    So, this is a short (2 hour audiobook), bizarre, unique, interesting, and creative little fantasy/action story in which Stephen is introduced along with a number of his hallucinatory personas. It becomes action packed because of course there's some stolen technology and some terrorist types and so forth.

    It was an enjoyable listen (I listened via Audible) and I will probably read or listen to later installments in the series. The author's creativity and imagination really come through in this one. The narrator did a good job and did not seem to have any annoying quirks.

    "A nice surprise"
    If you could sum up Legion in three words, what would they be?

    Psychotic, funny, explorer


    What other book might you compare Legion to and why?

    Reminded me of the Jump series


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

    No, it was my first. Very easy to listen too. Well done.


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

    I did ... it is rather short.

    "lively and lovely"

    A nice little short story with a unique and interesting premise. Nothing too developed, because of the length, but fun for what it is. I read the sequel with enthusiasm and will look out for the first. Fans of the author should certainly take the time to go through Legion.

    "Interesting Concept"

    I'm not usually one for short stories, but this one really drew me in. I won't spoil the concept for you, other than to say it makes for an interesting, flawed and entertaining character. I would love to read a full length novel, but this is still a satisfying listen.

    "It's good, but needs more debth "

    I agree with everyone that this is a solid and good book, although short. Many has seemed to look between the fingers on the shortness though. I feel the whole setup and storytelling is harmed by the shortness and I keep feeling Sanderson took too many shortcuts with his usually thourough writing. Now don't get me wrong, I enjoyed every part of it, but I do not dare giving it a good as grade as his other books. Even if this book was meant to be written in an easy to pick up and read in a sitting way, I feel he overdid it. Also, even with his almost unlimited power of his vision I never really felt their power in this book. Lets hope the next one really shines in this department.
