The orator really had a problem making the story come to life; at times, I felt he was reading me a bedtime story, lulling me to sleep. Additionally, the orator has very specific and jarring pronunciation of the lead character's name I almost didn't finish.
Having read the story in ebook version prior to listening via audiobook, I consider both mediums to fit the story well.
Wyman does a great performance, integrating pacing as well as voice accents that bring the characters to life. One drawback was Wyman's unfortunate pronunciation of Nimue's name, as Ni-MOO instead of NIM-oo-ay, as in the mythical character associated with Merlin. The pronunciation stuck out immensely, however Wyman's performance overall was very good.
