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
    "Coolest Idea for a TV Show Ever"
    What did you love best about Legion?

    Very creative; a man who has hallucinated personalities ends up becoming the world's best detective. Mix this a bit with Fringe, and you've got an awesome television series!


    What did you like best about this story?

    Very digestible, and it of course leaves you wanting more. That's the hallmark of a good story.


    What about Oliver Wyman’s performance did you like?

    His tone fit Sanderson's narration like a glove. Brandon Sanderson loves characters who have sarcastic wit and use understatement liberally, and Oliver Wyman nails it.


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

    Hilarious at times, nerve-wracking at others.

    "A great "Listen.""
    Where does Legion rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is one of the better audio books I have listened to. The idea of the story is unique and the narration really brings it to life.


    What about Oliver Wyman’s performance did you like?

    I am not sure how much I would have liked this book if I had "read" it. The narrator did a great job of bringing the hallucinations to life and integrating them with the outside world.


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

    This is a great book for a 2 hour car ride. I would highly recommend listening to this book.

    Story
    "Very Good Novella"

    I was pleasantly surprised with this book. The story moved along at a steady rate and the characters were well fleshed out for a short story. My biggest yardstick on whether a story is well written is whether I care about what happens to the main characters. The story got my attention enough that I listened to is all in one long listen. Mind you, I purchased this book mostly on the merits of its author. I have read some of his previous work and found them a good read (or listen). The story gets a slightly lower rating because I'm not really fond of short storys and I need to be really emotionally moved by a book to give it a higher rating.

    I would of given this 5 stars across the board but it was a short story. I didn't want the story to end or the characters to stop coming.

    What did you love best about Legion?

    An inside view into mental illness!


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

    No, you have to listen to this book very carefully, or else you could have a hard time
    Following the story.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is worth the money. I would suggest it.

    Story
    "Unusual Partners in Crime"
    Would you listen to Legion again? Why?

    I'm sure I will and actually have already listened twice. The idea of someones psychosis aiding in the solving of a crime was intriguing and I needed to see if I had missed anything the first time.


    What other book might you compare Legion to and why?

    I don't ever read this type of fantasy so I can't say.


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

    They were all good, but I think the woman psychiatrist was the most intriguing and held the most questions - the main character analyzing himself, as it were.


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

    I wouldn't call it extreme, but I did laugh a lot.


    Any additional comments?

    This book was an unexpected happy surprise and I went right away to see what else the author had written. I think I was well-introduced into a new genre for me!

    If you could sum up Legion in three words, what would they be?

    I find the concept behind this story to be fascinating, and I hope there is more!


    What about Oliver Wyman’s performance did you like?

    I am utterly impressed. This has got to be the most difficult book to narrate ever.

    Would you listen to Legion again? Why?

    Already listened to it twice don't see why I won't again!


    What other book might you compare Legion to and why?

    Honestly there is nothing else that compares to legion, it is so unique it defies classification.


    What about Oliver Wyman’s performance did you like?

    I loved the slight touches he gave each character - an accent here, a lisp there it really fleshed out the performance.


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

    I actually did!

    When you found out that all that all the characters were of one mind
