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.

So much fun...

I think Brandon Sanderson is brilliant as he delivers up one of the best/strangest protagonists ever... Meet Stephen Leeds... and as Stephen puts it... He is quite Sane! However, his other "aspects" the (imaginary friends) of his persona are all quite mad! He is also a genus... Each of his imaginary friends is a genius too, but only in a single field. Each of his 'friends' are so different from each other plus they're funny and always squabbling... But, it's only with their help that he's able to solve the mystery set forth in this fantastic novella. 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!
