My favorite tales - but not my favorite lilt

This is a collection which entices by the list of stories and authors - cream of the crop.
However I found Cathy's lilt not one I could listen to. Her pace and the comprehension she brought to such varied styles were good but the intonation as to my ear, forced and inverted. Most frustrating! I checked many samples of her other readings and this varies slightly from earlier ones and it may be better suited to the cadences and exaggerations of nursery rhymes - a book of which she herself has produced. I would certainly try and listen again to her telling of these great tales if this lilt was toned down...
