In this world, Jean le Flambeur has broken out of a virtual prison and, later, into the mind of a living god. Now his one-time rescuer, the warrior Mieli, is a prisoner herself. To get her back, Jean will need tools: A quantum pyramid scheme, a pair of physical bodies, a nugget of computronium, a bunch of entangled EPR pairs, and a few very special hydrogen bombs. Jean le Flambeur, gentleman adventurer, is back. The solar system will tremble from one end to the other before he's done.

Anyone who listened to first two books should avoid this book. The new narrator pronounces many many things differently. You can tell he didn't bother to listen to the first two books, at all. Also, he gives voice to characters that do not match the character. For example, he gives the YOUNG detective Isadore, the voice of a decrepit old man. Again, you can tell he had no idea what has come before.
This is always a disappointment (the new narrator in Richard Morgan's third book, Woken Furies, pronounced the name of the main character in a way the first specifically said was wrong.)
Poor poor choice.

Why switch narrators on the last book in a trilogy
Would you try another book from Hannu Rajaniemi and/or Roger Wayne?
Hannu, yes. Roger Wayne, No.
What was one of the most memorable moments of The Causal Angel?
When I realized that the narrator didn't know how to pronounce most of the names that are unique to this series.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
There's no way Wayne listened to the previous books because he pronounced most stuff differently. Scheduling issues or whatever, changing narrators on the last book in a trilogy is ridiculous.
What character would you cut from The Causal Angel?
Any additional comments?
This really needs to be redone with Brick back as narrator. I mean, seriously, Wayne pronounces the names of basically all the main characters different. So disappointed by this.
