    Well, I suppose it had to happen sometime. I'm rating a Brandon Sanderson book less than four stars. He's written about five million of them, so statistically this was a very likely outcome, eventually. And now it has, and we can all move on with our lives. I really enjoyed the firs...

    Woof. This was a good, but very difficult to read ending to the Legion series. I was a little disappointed by the structure of the book, as it removed much of the veneer of the previous two books and dove headlong into what makes Stephen Leeds tick and what happens when those gea...

    This was by far the best Legion story in terms of plot and character development, but the ending left me confused. Well, the ending per se was very clear, I just can't make up how to feel about it. Underwhelmed might not be the best word to describe the feeling. Rushed up? Vague? Empty...

    In the final novella of the trilogy, Stephen Leeds confronts his past and future and questions the very nature of reality. It?s a fitting final chapter for one if the most unique characters in modern fiction. Fast paced and head trippy, Sanderson manages a finale that is both fun and...

    Easily - EASILY - The best of the series. For such short novellas, these pack quite the punch. I read this following the release of Sanderson's "Legion: The Many Lives of Stephen Leeds", which is a single volume containing all three of these novellas. This conclusion really rounds ...

    I still love Brandon Sanderson?s LEGION series and adore Stephen Leeds and his hallucinatory aspects, but ?Lies of the Beholder? ... was kind of a letdown. As ?Lies of the Beholder? (the third and last novella in this series) begins, Stephen Leeds is giving a private inter...

    Maybe this story was a little too ambitious for such a small word count. I loved the premise but I felt that it just wasn't explored to a point I was satisfied with and therefore the ending kind of felt hollow. There are just so many questions left unanswered and as I was reading the b...

    (This is a review for the third novella only; the audiobook and bound hardcover of Legion released today includes all three novellas, but I've read the other two previously, so I skipped to Lies of the Beholder.) AHHHHHH finally an end to this novella series! And therein lies bot...

    Is it the end? I'd like sequels! If I enjoyed very much the previous 2 books, this one was the most satisfying and fun. Sanderson delivered some needed answers and, as usual, did well with the aspects. I enjoyed spending time with them and found Stephen as interesting as in the prev...

    I feel like I should have seen that ending coming, it was so beautiful and simple, it gave me goosebumps. But as much as I loved the ending, I felt just a little underwhelmed by this last addition to the legion series (which is one of my absolute favourite Sanderson creations). It wa...

    I really enjoyed the conclusion to the Legion trilogy. So much so I do not want it to end, I keep trying to think of new ways he could come back, or what his future holds. Legion gets a message from his past that will definitely affect his future. He is given the choice of his life,...

    A rare miss for this great author. Brandon Sanderson is in my opinion the greatest living fantasy author. Rather than milk a single work as most authors do, he has multiple sets of books with distinct characters, concepts, magic systems and worldbuilding. Any one of these could serv...

    Lies of the Beholder is the final novella in Brandon Sanderson?s Legion series, and it was an interesting end to the story. Although this wasn?t my favourite of the three stories, it was an interesting end. In truth, Lies of the Beholder isn?t quite a full three-star rating. H...

    I wonder how this novella trilogy would be if it was a novel trilogy. Again, things and characters are expanded and fleshed out. This time there's much more risk. As Leeds is an unreliable narrator, it makes things much more interesting but I felt like due to its length, there wa...

    A very fitting ending to a fantastic novella trilogy. Stephen sees his condition come to a climax, as he?s faced with his own eroding health. Overall, it was incredibly well done, as Sanderson navigated the pretty complicated psychology parameters and technology advances he had intro...

    A flat note in an otherwise good series. Spoilers. (view spoiler)[When I went in to Lies of the Beholder, I had no idea it was the finale to the series. I was expecting more adventures with the likable characters that only the main character could see; instead I got a seemingly s...

    This was the third and final book of the Stephen Leeds trilogy and I loved this so much. I just wish they were longer or there was more to the series. Unlike most of Brandon Sanderson's works this is more of a contemporary mystery book. Steven Leeds manages his multiple personality...
