Book Description

A Pennsylvania native, and author of 28 publications to date, Maurice Price’s latest novel “A Son's Demise Is A Mother's Grief allows readers to experience the pain and heartache a mother suffers after losing a child to violence. In the book, Price not only addresses the ordeal of the victim’s mother, but also the parallel grief of the assailant's mother.

Confronted by the grief of dealing with the death of loved ones and close friends in his own life, it was the pain and sorrow that Price felt while mourning that led him to writing. “I decided to find an avenue to release what I felt”, explains Price. With the ink of my pen, I decided to write about the events in my own life.”

However, Price encountered a barrier. He was not proficient in the areas of reading and writing. Price’s first step was to enroll in a college writing course in order to master this new passion for expressing his ideas. Through his studies, Price quickly learned how to craft a story. Consequently, as Price’s writing skills improved, so did his ability to read. Determined, Price devoured any reading materials that would teach him how to create a plot and develop characters and settings.

It was his struggle to find a solution and avenue to deal with his pain
and grief, caused by errors in his own judgment, that finally allowed Price to see the big picture by realizing the power he had to change lives with his pen. Six years later, Price is co-owner of JD2 Publication, the publication and production company responsible for putting out “A Son’s Demise Is A Mother’s Grief" Edited by David Nazario.

3.0 out of 5 stars First Impressions Last.... February 7, 2012

In the beginning I heard so many voices it was like a different person wrote each paragraph. Finally somewhere well into the story it sort of came together. The editing is bad and takes from the story. The message was a very good one.What you do good or bad (in this case bad) does not only affect you but others around you.Not only your relatives but your whole community. The tragedy is this story bonded 3 grieving mothers together, not only to help heal them from their pain. A healing that led them to help others in the community.

If this book had been properly edited a little bit it would have been a much better read.

Mr. Price has potential and promise. Good luck in his future endeavors. He should remember that First Impressions Last.

2.0 out of 5 stars Has Potential but Could Be Much Better January 25, 2012

I have read many urban novels that depict what typical hood life is supposed to be. Many of these stories generally have a storyline such as betrayal, greed, etc. This is not one of those stories. There is no real plot to this story. The only thing going on in this book is chapter after chapter of violence. Granted, violence is expected in many urban novels but this took the cake. Considering the title and small description of this book, I was expecting something a little different. I'll write my description of this book along with my opinion. You can be the judge...

This book focuses on 3 young men, Vontay Evans, Kyle Jackon, and Sosa Cruz. The story is told starting from the time the men were teenagers. Their start into the life of hustling and killing is told. Almost all of the killing and drug dealing is described in detail. It gets kind of graphic. Now from the title I knew that the men were going to die (you find out who as you keep reading). The mother of the son who gets killed as well as the mother of the killer struggle to deal with their loss and to make sense of it all.

Now the description sounds decent enough but sadly this was not the case. I expect there to be some grammatical errors when books are published independently. This book has a lot of misspelled words, missing words, and certain words used incorrectly. At times the same 2 or 3 words or sentences are repeated a few times. This became confusing to me because I got lost trying to make sense of it. Throughout the book when someone and another person were described it was written as "I and my mother" instead of my mother and I. It drove me nuts! At times I had to go back a page to make sure that this was the beginning of a new chapter and that I didn't miss anything.
