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
    "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!

    You can't beat free! Brandon Sanderson pens an inventive story, one that you wish was longer but is still satisfying. I feel as though there was potential here for more, but then it wouldn't have been free...

    Story
    "wonderful, witty listen"
    Where does Legion rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This was my first fiction audiobook but I loved it. I've now tried other fiction audiobooks and only one, The Golden Notebook, has pleased me more than Lesion.


    What other book might you compare Legion to and why?

    Maybe one of Winterson's young adult books. Very smart, very accessible. This was, however, way funnier.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    This whole book was good. The airplane scene was funny and smart.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed, I immediately searched for more books by the author upon finishing, I was so pleased the author wrote this novella
