Fear Me Now by Christopher Williams is a book about a young black man who was not happy with how the black Americans lived in the United States, and he hated the white people for it and for stealing the black people from their land, killed their culture, stole them from their God, and taught them to hate themselves. And for this he, and other blacks with the same view to his, regarded the whites as the devils.
The only thing that made Crenshaw Dimes feel a little privileged among some other black people was that he had a job and was going to school which at least gave him hope for a better future. However, his hatred for white natives gave him a quest for a solution to the betterment of black people's lives. On some occasions he happened to meet with others in the same shoe for a solution, but to his disappointment no one was ready to act for change instantly, for some where waiting for the divine time to act after the devil's time of supremity has expired: like the wise Allah, a group of youths who believed that they were gods.
Things went worse after being fired for assaulting a white customer over a service misunderstanding. On his way home, he luckily withdrew 100 Dollars from someone's account who left a transaction in progress on the ATM machine. He used the money to buy a nine-millimeter gun and started a mission of killing and robbing his most hated enemies.
I wondered why Crenshaw hated the whites so much and this is one thing that kept me glued to the story that I may find out how it ended with him. But later on I was relieved to note that it went well with him even after his successful acts of crime. I applaud Mr.Christopher's straight storyline narration style mostly focused on the main character from the first page to the end without twist and turns, which made it easy for me to follow the story. Even though there are main characters, no scene went without Crenshaw the main character, this gave clarity to the story and I liked it. The only thing that I detested was much usage of valgur words.
The book can be appealing to those who like crime stories and action thrill, thus I recommend it to them, mostly adults who can not be offended with obscene language, or contents which has a touch of racism. They who can not stand racism views from individuals and those who don't like obscene language and crime stories, are allowed to not read this book.
Not having much serious errors proves to me that the book was professionally edited; thus for this reason, and the clarified writing style, I give it a solid four out four stars.
