As someone who has a professional undestanding of domestic abuse suffered by women I found my preconceptions challenged relating to men being victims. I felt an immediate connection with the characters and I look forward to discussing the book at my book group as I'm sure it it'll generate lots of interesting discussion.

I read the book and it was GREAT! Surprisingly, it was a page turner. My life's work is to help abused males and bring awareness to the plight of these special victims. This book will surely help our cause. Its hard to get people to understand men's suffering and the pain they endure with all types of abuse and domestic violence, where men are concerned, is the hardest to sell. People just don't believe it. The book took you into these horrible situations and then brought you out at the end with a lot of hope. Brilliantly written. I also though it was a very effective, bold and innovative way of bringing the reader into the lives of abused males in domestic violence situations.

An interesting read for psychologists, people in the social services profession and anyone who is interested in human behavior or the cause to stop domestic abuse.

This is an amazing and fascinating book ...
While domestic abuse is by no means a comfortable topic, the book is well-written and makes for a compelling read. Indeed, it was difficult to put the book down as I couldn't wait to find out how these three tragic situations would be resolved (and a clever link-up at the end brought two of the stories together!).
These days, we're all vividly aware of the appalling incidence of abuse against women and children yet I'm sure that very few people (like me!) ever consider that men might be abused too. It's clear that Philip Paris has gone to enormous trouble in conducting his research and interviewing widely to bring a true-to-life quality to a work of fiction. I can heartily recommend this book.

Format: Paperback
Men Cry Alone is a book that forces you to question many aspects of life and face the unpleasant and often hidden side of relationships. The characters are brought to life through through the writer's skill, each separate story different from the rest but each tackles a side of male abuse that is difficult to believe exists, but it does. As a female reader, I found myself questioning why the men didn't stand up to their wives as I couldn't imagine how they could live in silence. By the end of the book I understood so well why they do. This book isn't always an easy read but it is a must read and thoroughly recommended. Beverley. The highlands

Format: Paperback
‘Men cry alone’ is a heart rending story that, while fictitious, is clearly based on detailed research of a very real problem, and written with the skill and sensitivity that comes only from a deep understanding. The Author’s ability to bring the characters to life is immediately engaging, and there will be many who can personally relate to the situations described – and hopefully realise that they are not alone in trying to deal with them. I found it a compelling read, and believe that for those who deal with cases like these on a professional basis, it should be a compulsory read.

Do not be put off by the two-star review - in fact, if you do not think it's 'your bag' you should most definitely read it! This book is well written, acutely observed and thought provoking, about ourselves and our society. There is a heart-warming and hopeful twist at the end that restores one's faith in humanity and the small acts of kindness that make the world a bearable place. The cover photograph gives a flavour of the isolation and despair that the victims of abuse - male and female - must feel; the book shows that these do not have to last for ever.

I also had professional experience of victims of abuse of all ages and both sexes. At the beginning I was irritated by the characters. It did not take long, though, for me to be hooked. I started reading it during a break for morning coffee. In spite of, or because of, being retired we appear to be very busy and insist on a break! I finished it before going to sleep that night. It was a compelling read and I can thoroughly recommend it. Philip Paris has encapsulated a difficult subject brilliantly.
