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.

    "Quite surprising"

    I've got this book for free from Audible, and was quite surprised by the quality of the story.
    An intriguing main character, a short, but well constructed plot.
    And, not a surprise there, an excellent performance.
    Hope that the series grow

    "Sanderson does it again!"

    This is an amazing story. The interaction of the lead character and his hallucinations is wonderfully done. This books is a genuinely refreshing take on mental illness. Also the ideas presented in the book about time travel are unique. Oliver Wyman gives a great performance, giving each character their own vocal personality. His accents are very well done.

    Story
    "Well worth the read"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Its a very interesting question of can a person fully utilize there gifts and what are the costs.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The main character is all the characters.he understands who he is. Well at least he think he does. But it gives him purpose. This is more like Sherlock with a problem story.


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

    Be all you can be.

    "Never disappoints!"

    Brandon Sanderson is fantastic. I have yet to read or listen to a story of his and not love it.

    It fascinates me to think how one person could have such and incredible imagination. Although... maybe Brandon has a few "aspects" helping him out!

    "Unique & Imaginative"

    I don't know if this should be considered sci-fi or if, like Diana Gabaldon's
    novels, they need a separate category: fiction multiple personality mystery?
    Either way, I thoroghly enjoyed this, & wish there were more. As a RN for
    more than 30 yrs. I have KNOWN people similar, but not as coherant!
