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.

    "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.

    "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!

    "Fun story, but this is the raw audio"
    Any additional comments?

    Audible has failed to edit this audio. In the middle of a sentence the reader will say "Here's an alternate" and then repeat the line slightly differently. Or if he misread a sentence he will read it again correctly. Those are recording artifacts that are supposed to be edited out but haven't been. Pretty amateurish.

    Story
    "Can Easily Finish in One Sitting"

    I read a lot of Brandon Sanderson in 2014 (3 of my 26 books) and enjoyed all of them. On a recent Audible sale I picked up both Legion and Legion: Skin Deep without even reading the description of the book. After listening to the very short Legion I can say that its a very different Sanderson then I've ever read. Instead of his normal hardcore fantasy writing with complex magic systems, Legion is a relatively tame mystery.

    The story follows Stephen Leeds who you meet at the beginning of this novel in his mansion where he introduces the reader to his many imaginary friends. Yes that's right he has a bunch of imaginary personas. These persona's are used to increase his intellect and solve a slue of mysteries. The first we're introduced to is a camera that can take pictures of the past. As long as its pointing at something it can take a picture of that spot throughout history. When the camera goes missing he boards a flight to Israel where the cameras inventor is trying to either prove or disprove Christianity.

    Its a really great short story and one that I finished in a day. I cannot wait to read the next novel and see where the story goes. I hope it continues with this historical camera because it could have some major ramifications on both the world and Stephen Leeds.

    Story
    "Good Light Read"

    It's a decent story but I am not as enamored with it as many other Sanderson fans out there. This was my first Sanderson novel (short story), and I can't say it grabbed me like other readers. Some readers will give it five stars and say the author's the best that ever lived! (See five star reviews) Was I missing something? Maybe...

    I'm not saying I won't read another Sanderson book, and I plan on starting a longer series very soon. But I'm expecting a little more spark to the stories, then I'll gladly jump on board with those devoted fans of his.

    Overall: Based on other reviews and how much I remember, it might be a repeat for me. This is a middle of the road book for me at the moment.

    "Very good listen"

    I got the second one free but didn't want to listen to it without listening to this one first. It's a quick story but well worth a listen.
