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.

    "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!

    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.

    "Turned it off after 15 minutes."
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Better author and narrator that wasn't so boring...


    Has Legion turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Hardly.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Boring monotone and started to fall asleep.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Nope.


    Any additional comments?

    Doesn't deserve any, thank god it was free.

    Wow! I am very impressed with this work. This is a great concept for a character. I sincerely hope this is a launching platform for more installments. Oliver Wyman give a superb performance as expected.

    "A short story stint with an interesting character"

    I got this as frequent listener special and found the story to be unusual and interesting. Similar in many ways to the new USA series "Perception", its a unique look at the sane and insane side of schizophrenia. Both Legion and Perception treat the illness as an asset making the protagonists a type of savant. There are hints to a backstory and future possible episodes that makes me wonder how this came to be. Was the author testing the waters for a possible new book series. It was good enough that I'd take another journey with "Legion"

    "Good story!"

    Can't believe it's free, like others wish it were longer, and/or a series. Love these originally thought of books. Narrator was great.

    "Clever and Enjoyable novella"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This was a fun novella from the distinguished Mr. Sanderson. The main character was instantly likeable and it was a unique take on an action story, with all the different personalities. It held my interest well and I actually wanted to go in the car somewhere so I could listen. The narrator with a nice job with varying voices. I have enjoyed other tales by Sanderson and would pick this narrator again for other audio books.


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

    10 heads are better than one!

    An old broad that enjoys books of all types. Would rather read than write reviews though. I know what I like, and won't be bothered by crap.

    Story
    "Great novella on an interesting character."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Legion to be better than the print version?

    I thought the narrator was above average and helped you envision what the lead character's life was like with many aspects.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The multiple personality syndrome turned into a detective story. Very unique.


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

    His voices are great and helped to explain the different personalities.


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

    I laughed when you find out that two of his aspects were having an affair! Very clever!


    Any additional comments?

    Interesting book. I have never heard of this author before but I may want to read some more of his work.
