Classic works ruined by dreadful narration

Managed to get to Chapter 9 before my ears started to bleed. The narration is like someone catching nails down a blackboard. Think of that snake out of The Jungle Book hissing every 'S' combined with drawling sentences. The total ruination of some of the most classic and wonderful gothic works ever written.
