Publisher's Summary

Until she was found dead along the bank of the Hudson River, Molly Marx led an enviable life. A young wife and mother, Molly now finds herself in The Duration, where with the help of a refreshingly unorthodox guide, she can observe the friends and family she left behind: her philandering plastic surgeon husband, the irresistible colleague who became her lover, a competitive twin sister, her controlling mother-in-law, a loyal but confused friend, and - most importantly - her purest love, a three-year-old daughter. As Molly watches them try to untangle the events leading to her mysterious end, she relives her past and learns the fates of those she loved most (and least).

Exploring marriage, fidelity, friendship, family, and mortality, The Late, Lamented Molly Marx is a funny, yet tender love story about a flawed but appealing woman forced - better late than never - to take responsibilities for the choices in her complicated life.

Fun story, good narrator

This book came as a surprise to me. I didn't realize that it would be a mystery, for some reason. But it's more than a mystery--it's a fun character story where we get to know the main character after she's dead. Molly Marx was an interesting woman--creative, loving, and, perhaps a little naive. I wish I'd known her before she was gone. Fun story.

Very enjoyable listen

Entertaining. Held my attention. I gave the performance 2 stars because it was grating to hear the narrator butcher all of the Jewish words.

Loved this book

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, I liked it very much. The narrator was terrific.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Molly was my favorite character, of course. I also liked her friend Brie.

Which character – as performed by Tanya Eby Sirois – was your favorite?

She did a great job with all of them. She made me like Molly, Luke, Annabelle, Brie and Molly's parents. Made me not like Barry, Kitty, and especially Stephanie!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The moments when Molly watches Annabelle from above.

Any additional comments?

Really liked this book. Hope to find other things by this narrator and this author.
