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.

    "Intriguing and Thrilling"

    Awesome opening to a series. It's short so ive listened to it multiple times. Cant wait to see what other aspects and possibilities this story may bring. Being so short but thrilling it felt like a pilot episode of a TV show, but a great one.

    "Loved the concept"

    I love the entire concept but I'd love to read a full story instead of the way too short, short story. I look forward to its sequel!

    Story
    "Normally I don't give any book 5 stars."

    Normally, I don't give 5 stars to any books unless they are well established classics that seem to have the right gravitas.

    I give this book 5 stars out of pure enjoyment. The story of an insane genius who knows he is insane but not crazy. A person that has such a capacity to retain knowledge that he has imaginary friends in which to store his different areas of expertise. The personas or aspects around him have very developed personalities and have taken on lives of their own. He talks with them argues with them and they show up on dates when they are not wanted. And guess what, when people see you arguing with someone who is not there, they think your crazy.

    Having a good concept though will only take you so far. You have to have good plotting, good dialog and interesting characters. I find the main antagonist Stephen totally fascinating as I do all of his aspects and the problems people come to him for help with are intriguing and novel.

    I was highly disappointed to see that, so far, there are only two in the series and they are fairly short works. Novellas really. But they are inexpensive and highly enjoyable.

    I am waiting and hoping that Mr. Sanderson will follow up soon with more as I will surely buy them.

    "VERY SHORT"

    I didn't get this for free as others apparently had done previously, but I did download the second book for free. I was disappointed in it's length. Seems like I stumbled in on a story in the middle of things with a past that I could not completely understand. Maybe more will be revealed in the sequel.

    Story
    "Legion"
    Would you listen to Legion again? Why?

    Maybe,just to see if I missed anything.For such a short book it had a lot packed in the story.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Legion?

    meeting personalities.


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

    Stephen


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

    Yes,and did


    Any additional comments?

    This book is an original.The storyline was well written and followed through.I enjoyed listening to Oliver Wymans many voices for the characters that populate Mr Leeds head.The thought that someone could make a camera that could look back in time is priceless.Just THINK what one could do with that!
