Poorly Narrated

What would have made The Great British Short Story Collection better?

I have just bought this and within a few sentences I realised I had made a mistake. The narrator has such an annoying voice, I can't stand to listen. Avoid at all costs!

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?
