Book Review: Skin Deep (Legion #2) by Brandon Sanderson

Four Stars out of Five

Sanderson may inadvertently be onto something. Like Dean KoontzOdd Thomas stories, Sanderson’s fantasies about Stephen Leeds and his “aspects” may become a fun and profitable series.

The only thing you have to know about Stephen is that he’s not crazy. At least, that’s what he keeps telling himself.

Meanwhile, he’s trying to keep himself and his burgeoning host of personalities alive and out of trouble. The latter being pretty much a lost cause.

A fun read.

  1. Why would the writer inadvertently stumble onto this theme? Could it be on purpose? Is the writer playing with MPD? (Multiple personality disorder is the old name). Now it’s called DID, dissociative identity disorder. Typically this is serious and not fun, so probably it isn’t DID. I see his name around a lot, a good world-builder, yes? In any case, your review makes it sound interesting. Thanks.

  2. That it’s a winner may be the inadvertent part.

    Sanderson was very intentional about dealing with the issue, though you need to read how he introduces it, in “Legion” and “Skin Deep,” not take my word for it. Part of it is his story telling gift.

    The point, in part, is how real it is to the point of view character.
