Beschreibung

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 short, distinctly contemporary novella filled with suspense, humor, and an endless flow of invention, Sanderson revealed a startling new facet of his singular narrative talent. In the stunning sequel, Legion: Skin Deep, that talent is on full display.
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... What follows is a visionary thriller about the potential uses of technology, the mysteries of the human personality, and the ancient human need to believe that death is not the end. Legion: Skin Deep is speculative fiction at its most highly developed. It reaffirms Sanderson's place as one of contemporary fiction's most intelligent - and unpredictable - voices.

The Sleuth with Multiple Schizophrenia

This book is fun, highly unusual and extremely bizarre. On top of it, Audible offered it as a free download, which made it even nicer.

Steven Leeds is a genius and he is insane. He creates a separate personality for each of his talents (somewhere around 40) and interacts with them. He calls them aspects and for him they are real. Together with his aspects he is for hire to solve mysteries.

In this story, a high tech firm developed a technology to use the human DNA as a data storage system. Unfortunately one of the lead scientists dies and his body containing very powerful and dangerous information disappears. Steven is manipulated into taking the case and very soon he is not only searching for a body, but fighting for his life.

Good entertainment, well written and pretty smart.
