Would you try another book written by Elizabeth Bishop or narrated by Alexandra Dowling?

Having listened to all of these Free Poetry readings, this one does not do it for me. Alexandra Dowling was not the right reader. Apart from coming across as rather nervous, as she read the poem she seemed confused and unable to naturally go along with the flow. There is no warmth, variation nor heartfelt contact with her character - dead performance.
