Classic short stories - Ruined

What would have made The Short Stories of Robert Louis Stevenson better?

A totally different narrator. Unfortunately Cathy Dobson's style of narration completely spoilt this download. In fact I couldn't listen to it all as her voice and style irritated me beyond the chance of enjoyment. In fact I feel like asking for a refund to compensate me for my loss of enjoyment.

Would you be willing to try another one of Cathy Dobson’s performances?

NEVER

Any additional comments?

I cannot comment on characters as half way through the first story I gave up trying to listen.
