Story nice, but portrayal 1 character unbearable

There is a character named Gwystyl, who is supposed to be annoying, but the narrator went a little overboard in his portrayal. Gwystyl would have been humorously annoying if given a normal voice, but, the overdone portrayal made listening to him almost intolerable. Just when I thought the scene with Gwystyl would, it went on, and I almost turned off the book to order a paper copy to read instead.

Outstanding storytelling!

Timeless classic of that sets the standard for much of the contemporary high fantasy literature and programs we see today. A must read for children, YA and adults.
