"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 new story begins, Leeds and his "aspects" are hired by I3 (Innovative Information Incorporated) to recover a corpse stolen from the local morgue. But there's a catch. The corpse is that of a pioneer in the field of experimental biotechnology, a man whose work concerned the use of the human body as a massive storage device. He may have embedded something in the cells of his now dead body. And that something might be dangerous" --… (more)

Good fun listening. Oliver Wyman did a good job narrating the many voices. I wasn't too surprised at the ending, but possibly that was by the author's design. It involved a trip to Jerusalem and much action, trying to find the creator of a camera which could take a photo of any point in history if it was on the spot. ( )

Another good entry into the Legion series. Like the first entry, it has good character(s), good storytelling, and a mystery plot that is well thought out. I enjoy Sanderson and hope that he continues the character and the series. Final Grade - A- ( )

Really interesting story and premise. I would have given this 4 stars if it was just longer, it's a fast fun read and I hope Sanderson follows up this novella length story with a full length novel. ( )

Mmm.. Non so che voto dare a questo libro.. Comunque siamo sulle tre stelle e mezzo.

Bellissima l'idea di partenza, come del resto tutte le idee di Sanderson, ma c'è qualcosa che non mi ha convinto ma che, ahimè, non riesco a spiegare, forse la risoluzione del caso un po' troppo affrettata e forse il fatto che non ci sia un ulteriore approfondimento dei suoi aspetti e di come funzionano, anche se questo non è chiaro nemmeno a Stephen Leeds u.u
Mi ha affascinato molto l'epilogo che ha risollevato la mia relazione con Legion, anche se, dopo più volte che viene accennata, vorrei tanto fare la conoscenza di questa famosa Sandra :)
Nonostante tutto, rimane sempre un libro che vale la pena leggere, anche per cambiare un po' atmosfera :) ( )

Nice

Contains the best non religious argument for continued existence after death that I have read in some time. And an enjoyable novel too. ( )

Book description
It's not his own genius that Stephen Leeds gets hired for. Clients want to tap into the imaginary experts that populate his mind—and it's getting a bit crowded in there.

Now Stephen and his internal team of "aspects" have been hired to track down a stolen corpse—but it's not the corpse that's important, it's what the corpse knows. The biotechnology company he worked for believes he encoded top-secret information in his DNA before he died, and if it falls into the wrong hands, that will mean disaster.

Meanwhile, Stephen's uneasy peace with his own hallucinations is beginning to fray at the edges, as he strives to understand how one of them could possibly have used Stephen's hand to shoot a real gun during the previous case. And some of those hallucinations think they know better than Stephen just how many aspects his mind should make room for. How long will he be able to hold himself together?
