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.

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

    Literary aperitif


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    In a story with few living characters and many more imaginary, yet forgetfully real characters, it is unfair to ask for a "favorite character". If I must pick one, it would be Stephen Leeds as that encompasses the majority of the cast.


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

    Stephen Leeds Et al.

    "Great story and performance"

    I very much enjoyed the performance of the narrator. The story came to life. Use Audible for bedtime stories to get to sleep. When the stories and narrations are good I try to find the point where I fell asleep to continue. That is always the case with this story.

    "He does it again!"

    Highly entertaining, and extremely well developed for a short story. Already went ahead and purchased the next book in the series, it is awesome!

    "Original."

    An interesting view on Stephen's psychosis of his mental illness. To Stephen his personalities are tangible people and they learn or know things on their own without his genesis supplying facts. I actually read the second book in this series first because I happened to have gotten it free and it was also good, this one is my favorite from the two. Defiantly an original idea that will spur me on to reading more by Brandon Sanderson. My biggest complaint would be that it is not long enough. Narrator is great.

    "Original"

    I am a fan of all of this author's writing. Mistborn is my favorite. You can depend on the story introducing you to a new way of looking at people and/or the laws of physics and nature we are used to applying to life. But some how Brandon presents it in a way that you get caught up in the story and for a while you stop questioning the premise. I would recommend his books.

    My biggest complaint is that it was a novella instead of something longer and more involved.
    Very enjoyable and novel.
