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
    "Good, short listen for fans of Sanderson"
    What made the experience of listening to Legion the most enjoyable?

    It's an enjoyable, short read that fans of Brandon Sanderson will greatly appreciate.


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

    The book is short (only about two hours) so it's definitely a book for one sitting. It's delightful how the main character and his highly skilled cast of imaginary friends interact and solve the main conflict.

    Story
    "Gr8 premise, nothing was done with it"

    When I got to the place where you choose stars for "story," my mind immediately asked "What story? It's a just idea." And it's a good idea for a story; too bad Sanderson didn't do anything with it.

    I'm just over an hour into the book & absolutely nothing has happened other than the guy, his hallucinations, & 1-2 other real people talking. And talking. And talking some more. And then discussing the conversation. I'm not sure exactly how many other real people there are because I've zoned out a few times & quit going back to try & re-listen a while ago. It's not even interesting enough to put me to sleep; if I'm not a LITTLE interested, my brain just wanders away from the audiobook & goes back to the stresses of life. Usually I'll manage to hold out longer than an hour, but with this shortie, that's half way & I cannot keep even a portion of my mind on it.

    If you're into people talking with nothing else going on, maybe you'll like this book. I dunno; I usually have a fairly high tolerance, but this isn't even interesting talking.
    Oliver Wyman does a good job reading this transcript but not even a great reader like him can make this gabfest a winner. I think (I HOPE!) it was on sale when I got it, because whatever I paid for it I wasted.

    "A VERY worthwhile short"

    Brandon Sanderson's writings are, of course, all excellent. This one is an interesting conceit that I'd love to see expanded into a full length book. The narration is good, but not great; nothing especially outstanding or bad about it. Worth a listen, though.

    "Great Story"

    The only thing I didn't like about this story is that by the end of chapter 2 you understand the madness of the main character, and it just ends... Leaving you with the feeling that a dozen or so chapters are missing.

    I had to come back to audible to make sure I got the entire story, I'm hoping that this was meant to be a sample to a larger story or there's going to be a series.

    Story
    "Clever and Fun"
    Would you listen to Legion again? Why?

    Although a little short for how clever an idea, It was a really great listen. That's my only complaint, that it ended to quickly, But it was very fun and I'd get the sequel.

    Story
    "Got it free, and it was worth it."

    This seems like it would be a good idea for a TV series: a detective who solves mysteries with help from his hallucinations ("This fall on NBC..."), but where it lost me was the supernatural element with the camera. There's not enough science in the science fiction to make it important to the reader as anything more a reason to send the character(s) on an adventure. I'm not sure if Sanderson wrote this to be a series, or a TV pilot, or a one-off, but I think with a little extra focus and polish, it could have been better.

    "Need More of This Story!"
    What made the experience of listening to Legion the most enjoyable?

    Great new book that is NOT the same old thing in context. Very interesting, though short, but I want more but only after he writes more of the Way of Kings series!

    "Fun story good narration"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this audible book for a quick "read". intriguing concept, quick story. the male narrator did a good job of differentiating the many characters, real and imagined.


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

    As I suggested earlier, the narrator Oliver Wyman did a good job at both separating the gender of the characters and also in expressing', with some degree of consistency, their personalities.


    Any additional comments?

    I might be somewhat prejudiced in my positive review because for me the price was so right..........FREE!
