Paper Bullets definitly has heart and style. A heartfelt quest for identity blended with the pop culture that permiates our lives today, the book really identifies the search for Hapa identity. I had the pleasure of meeting Kip Fulbeck, and though the book is loosely based on himself, it truely is fiction, and when you ask him about 'did you really... or how did you...', he'll respond 'Me, or the character in the book?' An excellent book on the discourse of racial and multi-racial identity.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

I was taken aback after reading Fulbeck's book. The title does the book justice. His words pierce through you, they tell the truth even though you never want to admit it - the reality of his words are harsh and they make you think. A mixture of laughs and tears, this book is a keeper on my shelf.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Unforgettable, without a doubt!!!
I found myself experiencing laughter and tears simultaneously. I chuckled outloud many times throughout the book. The power of Kip's multi-layered writing style and the strong sometimes contradictory images painted by his words draw the reader into every page of this fictional account. Each event in the life of the character subtly pierces and wounds the heart in ways from which the reader WILL recover but the reader will NEVER be the same. Fictional? Maybe. Autobiographical? Maybe. Unforgettable, without a doubt!!!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
