[From The Mancave] – Legion: Skin Deep – Brandon Sanderson (Free Audiobook)

From The Mancave is the working title tagline to connect readers to book-related swag, giveaways, and free multimedia content from me to you. Don’t judge me too harshly for the name as I too am laughing at my own sanity for being unable to think of anything else. And I don’t mean to offend anyone with the title.

[Review] Legion #1 – Brandon Sanderson

Book Title:                  Legion (Short Story, Legion, #1)
Author:                         Brandon Sanderson
Number of pages:
   88

Synopsis:

legion - brandon sanderson (cover)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.

(re: Goodreads @ Legion by Brandon Sanderson)

Should this book be picked up? the tl;dr spoiler-less review:

-The dynamic between Leeds and his hallucinatory phantasms is a blast to read into.
– Plot reads like a detective tale with undertones of science, religion, and faith.
– Revelations do feel a bit rushed and open-ended in concept (not to be mistaken for a ‘bad’ ending).
