    I read an excerpt from what I gather is a fix up, or a compendium of three novellas. I have not quite connected with Sanderson's fantasy, though there is a lot I like, but this I really enjoyed. Briefly, Stephen Leeds has multiple personas, and the banter between them is what makes ...

    Stephen has a lot of people in his head. And while that sounds like a bad thing, he's managed to make it work for him. So, basically, he's like Sherlock Holmes but with multiple personality disorder. Ish. That will make sense if you read the book. Promise. This book was...

    No Spoilers, this was a good ending, to me. I imagine some people will be upset...but it worked and it makes sense. I can see now how this last installment was a really personal one for Sanderson. The story of Stephen Leeds is meant to be fun, and it is, and I think the ending will be ...

    What?s great about Legion is that there is more than one interpretation to be taken: a metaphor for writers and their process, a personal look at Sanderson?s process/mind, a look at mental illness, or just a really interesting and fun story. Legion is a compilation of three nove...

    Before reading the last part of the Legion series I decided to re-read the previous novellas. I think it was a good decision because it really tied up the story. I am sorry to say goodbye to Stephen and his aspects. Especially J.C. But everyone deserves their HEA, and for them I think ...

    This book was a compilation volume containing all three of Sanderson's Stephen Leeds novellas. I'll mainly focus on giving my thoughts on the newly released third novella, Lies of the Beholder, as I've already shared my thoughts on the other two in previous reviews. I did reread bo...

    Today is the publication day of Sanderson?s new book, and I am so gratefull that I received a copy of it via Netgalley. This does not affect my review. This book consists of three novellas, two of which have already been published before. This book binds those two together, and in...

    3.5 It?s so Hard to Say Goodbye Stars This is the final novella to complete out the story of a brilliant man who is just a little bit crazy, or at least his hallucinations are. We first met Steven Leeds on the worst blind date ever. It is a little disconcerting to find out the ...

    I have read several of Brandon Sandersons books & short stories and the Legion ones are among my favorites. The concept peeked my interest and Sandersons fast-paced writing style pulled me in. I am looking forward to reading the new story in this series. Thanks to Macmillan-Tor/...

    This collection is awesome. I really like how Sanderson turned schizophrenia into a superpower. I also really liked learning the ?rules? that went along with the hallucinations, and the science behind everything. Another win for Sanderson. ...

    Mr. Sanderson? writing is great when it comes to fantasy, especially to his Stormlight Archive series. However, he should stay away from science fiction, as this is not a genre for everyone to write. The science part is missing completely from this novella, there is no worldbuild...

    Full review to come as soon as i have a spare minute... But this an all-star fiction. This is my THE best favourite Sanderson?s book. I like better than Mistborn. Better than Emperor?s Soul. Better than anything else he wrote. Loved it from the first page and to the last. Pur...

    Brandon Sanderson is my favourite author but this book didn't blow me away. It felt more like an "experiment". It was fun to read and it was interesting in some points but that's it. ...

    'Voices in My Head: Part Three' has just been published and it made me round up my rating, as I am pretty certain I will when I reread the third story. 4.5 stars. Legion carries the Sanderson trademark through and through, with concepts which are fantastical and far out, but the...

    Blurring the lines between reality and imagination and between sanity and its opposite, Sanderson offers us three interlinked novellas, two of which were previously published. Stephen Leeds is a genius, but he is crawling along a tightrope perched precariously over a steep drop. In ord...

    Novella 1-*** Novella 2-**** Novella 3-***.5 Overall 3.5*. This was very different to the normal Sanderson stories. It still had a cool concept. Dealing with issues of psychology or humans dealing with inner problems are normally something Sanderson writes about. Its his forte/nic...

    Disclaimer: I've received a preview excerpt of this book which only included the first novella Legion, the rating will probably change once I've read the whole book. My first non-Fantasy Sanderson, and it was... okay. Short and sweet, but not memorable. I like the idea and I love h...

    ?My own brain fights against me.? ?No. We?re your brain, boss. We fight with you.? I?m on a mission to read all the Brandon Sanderson books. Yeah. It might take a while. (thank god) Sanderson is for me the young but wise king of fantasy. Someone who is just abou...

    This is a pretty solid novella. I have a hard time really enjoying the shorter format of a novella as even a succinct story always seems to lack the quick punchy satisfaction of a short story while not providing the draw of a longer more extensive treatment of the characters and premis...

    This was my first Sanderson and will definitely not be my last. This was a near perfect series for me in terms of characters, plot and pacing till the last chapter which flickered out towards a crushing disappointing and an ending which seemed just wrong. I would highly recommend...
