Harry Perkins is elected Prime Minister of the UK in an election that leaves the conservatives reeling. His platform is radical, left-wing, and from day one his enemies begin to rally against him. 'A Very British Coup' is a story about the rise of a government, and a look at what can happen in a democracy when you have the wrong, or should that be right, enemies.
Chris Mullin reads the story well, going from Perkin's thick Yorkshire accent to the polished Oxbridge accents of Perkin' conservative enemies, to the American accents of the US interests who involve themselves in the story. So effective is his narration that the gum chewing of the American President will grate on your nerves (or at least, it did mine ...)
This audiobook will appeal to those who love political thrillers like House of Cards, and was adapted into a highly acclaimed mini-series.
Thirty years ago, the plot seemed fantastical, even if good entertainment.
In today's climate this book seems more relevant, more believable - and more scary than it ever did when it was first published.
A fantastic read!
