Fear Me Now: The War Annex is a story about the travails of an African-American in a society dominated by racist whites in the late 1900s. It is based on a first-person perspective of an African American who goes to a university dominated by whites who are racists. Crenshaw Dimes, the African American and protagonist of the story is poor, depressed and infuriated by the attitude of the whites to the people of his race. He blames them for bringing his ancestors away from Africa to their land, enslaving them and always treating them like trash. He wishes to be allowed to live in peace without having to constantly watch his back against racists. He realizes that he is slowly cracking under the pressure of the society he finds himself and so he tries to maintain his sanity and silently cries for help from his careless and nonchalant friends, immature, long-distance girlfriend who claims she loves him and poverty stricken and unsuspecting mother.

He seeks solace in alcohol and the slightly racist preaching of his fellow religious blacks who claim that whites are the devils and they are gods. He finds them and their preaching to be idiotic and pointless and is upset about the attitude of his fellow African Americans who keep convincing themselves about their godly bloodline while they remain at the bottom of the food chain and suffer endlessly in the hands of the so-called devils.

The story; 'Fear Me Now: The War Annex', written by Christopher Williams is an amazing book that kept me captivated and made me feel slightly nostalgic. I initially did not expect much from the story but when I began to read, I could not get myself to stop reading until I was through with the entire story. I am unable to find any errors in the story. It is very well written, well edited and I cannot think of any way the story could have been better. It definitely touched my black African soul and reminded me of why exactly we are fighting against racists and their discrimination against Africans and virtually anybody with dark skin. It had also allowed me to view things from a different Black's point of view which I have not noticed before.

I could not find any faults in this book and so I proudly rate this book 4 out of 4 stars and recommend it to any and every person that has no problem dealing with the use of expletives(curse words) in the story.
