Would you consider the audio edition of Birdsongs to be better than the print version?

Yes, the narrator's ability to develop the accents and persona's for the characters surpassed the print version

What other book might you compare Birdsongs to and why?

This is really the first mystery/crime book I've read/listened to so I can't really answer this question

What about Nick Sarando’s performance did you like?

Nick's ability to create separate character accents and development of the characters easily and quickly pulled the reader into the story

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

the dangers of mixing business with pleasure
