After such a great start with Power Down, I immediately purchased Coup d'Etat looking for the same caliber in the characters. Just as fast as I purchased the book, I am equally disappointed. Dewey's voice has changed as well as Jessica's. There is an effort to maintain Calabreezy's voice but it varies. Dewey sounds too soft and Jessica stereotypical.

I also don't like how the men hunting Dewey sound like American boys sitting around a bar table. If they are part of a "cell", why do they speak in such horrible ways. After all the books and movies I've encountered with these types of characters, never have they spoken as they do in this book. So much cussing and women bashing. It does a disservice to the characters and leaves the book blah.

I'm going to continue listening but it's a little painful. I don't like this narrator. The same narrator from Book 1 should be kept throughout the series to keep consistency.
