Good collection, uneven narration

Some goods stories, some bad. One narrator yells
I enjoy a few of the stories in this collection, but the reason I didn’t rate it higher is because of the female narrator who literally yells during her readings. It’s so unsettling. I like audiobooks to relax and fall asleep, the last thing I want is to be awoken by a screaming and fighting. Just because characters in a story are disagreeing or fighting, doesn’t mean the narrator should yell. Ruins the entire experience.
My second issue is that a few of the stories are just plan bad.
