Would you consider the audio edition of UR to be better than the print version?

The narrator is good, audio surpasses print exclusively for me

Who was your favorite character and why?

The low men, I love the scary yellow coats and the red eye insignia

What does Holter Graham bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He's not annoying to hear
The afflictions he gives Wesley fits the character

Would you try another book from Brandon Sanderson and/or Oliver Wyman?

I'm hooked on legion
Even when skin deep was a really very very simple read I love the aspects.

Would you recommend Legion: Skin Deep to your friends? Why or why not?

It's a stand alone book
No I wouldn't Because the solutions and explanations are to easy

Great narrator

Was Legion: Skin Deep worth the listening time?

It was a break from Game of thrones
JC makes it worth it

Any additional comments?

There's so much to explain as far as from a psychosis perspective what could happen to Leeds
What if a 2 hr story explains the fall of Leeds into madness etc...
I feel a 3rd story coming
