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
    "A little jewel from Brandon Sanderson..."

    Stephen Leeds is one of the best but oddest protagonists ever... He is as he puts it... Sane! However other "aspects" the (imaginary friends) of his persona are all quite mad! He is also a genus... Each aspect is so different and funny, but it's only with their help that he's able to solve a mystery. I have just finished listening to the audible version and I loved it! Oliver Wyman really captures the flavor of the book catching Stephen and all his aspects perfectly... So get the book or even better the audio copy and have fun!

    A fantasy audiobook that takes me far away from the road increases my quality of life with every new title I 'read'.

    Blind listener reading everything, especially mystery/thrillers and sf&f. Restricted to audio so picky where credits spent. #BooksRule

    "CrowdedThoughts"

    Excellent!! An utterly unique, humorous, and engaging new type of detective... The multiple personalities/iterations could become confusing, but don't... The writer melds all together beautifully and brings up some interesting concepts to boot.... Wish he would do a full length adventure w/ this!!!

    "A very unique and interesting character"

    I'm almost always pleasantly surprised by Sanderson's unique perspective and unexpected characters. The main character in Legion does not disappoint. I really want to know more about this character and hope that Sanderson keeps expanding on him.

    "Solid Sanderson"

    Overall I really enjoyed it and will definitely pick up the next in the series. Very interesting idea and enjoyable characters. Just had a few issues with pacing and a few plot clichés. But with a 2 hour story it's hard to ask for better.
