Lies of the Beholder

Lies of the Beholder

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 Hugo Award-winning The Emperor's Soul have earned both critical acclaim and a substantial popular following. In the Legion series, distinctly contemporary novellas filled with suspense, humor, and an e...

Lies of the Beholder Reviews

  • Oskari

    I don't need to read a Brandon Sanderson book to know if it's going to be five stars.

    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, but to find peace he must first face his nightmares.

    It was awesome seeing these characters evolve and grow, I know Legion' s pain. Though the characters are not real I will miss them. A great story a bit on the short

    It was awesome seeing these characters evolve and grow, I know Legion' s pain. Though the characters are not real I will miss them. A great story a bit on the short side with a more bitter the sweet ending. Legion the series might be finished but but he will be remembered.

    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 it all out and brought a sense of closure to a set of circumstances and characters that I really didn't think would end impressively. Well done.

    These are by no means hefty, but they do require a good deal of attention

    These are by no means hefty, but they do require a good deal of attention to really appreciate the nuances and developments that Brandon makes throughout the series. Highly, highly recommend if you're in the mood for something quick to chew through in a day or two.

    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 interview to Jenny Zhang, a reporter who begins displaying far more insight into Stephen’s mental state and thought processes than he’s comfortable with. This uncomfortable interview is interrupted by a text from the long-missing San

    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 interview to Jenny Zhang, a reporter who begins displaying far more insight into Stephen’s mental state and thought processes than he’s comfortable with. This uncomfortable interview is interrupted by a text from the long-missing Sandra that says, simply, HELP. Stephen is desperate to find Sandra, but her trail is elusive … and some of Stephen’s aspects are becoming alarmingly unreliable.

    “Legion” and “Skin Deep” are both fun, fairly light reads with some intriguing psychological aspects. “Lies of the Beholder” is significantly different in tone. Without getting into spoiler territory, I admire Sanderson’s decision to take the final Legion story in a different, darker direction, but the final story felt like it needed more fine-tuning.

    The concept and basic plot of “Lies of the Beholder” is a strong one and had several truly surprising ― even shocking ― moments. However, there are some significant plot holes here, and I didn’t think the various elements tied together in a way that was sufficiently logical within the framework of this universe. As a result, I was left feeling vaguely dissatisfied with the resolution of Stephen’s story. That dissatisfaction was underscored by a final wrap-up that suggested a far too simple answer to the problem of Stephen’s schizophrenia.

    I’m still enthusiastic about the LEGION series as a whole. Stephen and his aspects are both original and appealing. This last story was almost great, but didn’t quite hold water for me.

    This is the final novella of this insane trilogy and I am really sad to say that this novella was really disappointing. I am going to go ahead and criticize this one completely.

    The novel was a emotional journey for me and I felt more concerned about the aspects of Stephen Leeds (mainly Tobias :( ). The idea was avant-garde in my opinion and the psychological elements were addressed in an excellent manner.

    This is the final novella of this insane trilogy and I am really sad to say that this novella was really disappointing. I am going to go ahead and criticize this one completely.

    The novel was a emotional journey for me and I felt more concerned about the aspects of Stephen Leeds (mainly Tobias :( ). The idea was avant-garde in my opinion and the psychological elements were addressed in an excellent manner.

    But other than that the novel was not a great ending to this trilogy. There were many plot holes that were not addressed properly by the author. The ending of the novel was awful and bland. The main antagonist was annoying and Sandra was a complete jerk. If she hadn't been the plot element, this series would have gone smoother. But this is not the worst. The worst of all is the killing of the characters. Damn!! The author had to kill off all the aspects and just bring them back by typing on a computer (not clear if all the aspects are brought back to life though). Seriously? That was not cool man.

    I get that the author was exploring different aspects of hallucination and it's psychology. But not providing a fine ending is just making me lukewarm. :(

    A great book but a very disappointing and flawed ending.

    I'm not sure I liked this one. 😬 Ima have to think about it for a couple of days.
