If You See Me Don t Say Hi is a collection of eleven fictional short stories about different experiences of first generation Indian Americans The stories are written with the goal to subvert the model minority myth and break down stereotypes I am not Indian so I cannot say whether Neel succeeded in his endeavour from an own voices point of view I do however find it interesting that each story contained a character that was either a doctor engineer lawyer or something of the sort and in terms of the model minority myth that aspect seemed to somewhat contradict the purpose of the book The stories explore a variety of intriguing themes such as identity love betrayal sexuality and mental health with relationships and sex being the central focus in most if not all stories Because of the similar themes in every story by the third one it starts to feel repetitive and mundane especially since infidelity was a consistent theme throughout Ultimately the characters feel one dimensional due to the lack of variety in voices and storylinearcs The stories are almost a retelling of themselves and I found myself uestioning whether the characters were flawed and realistic or just extremely unlikable and if I m honest I think it is of the latterI wasn t particularly fond of some of the dialogue written for the female characters and felt some descriptions to be tasteless Describing women s body parts like molds of gelatin and pillows of dough just seems like lazy writing and every time I read a description like that I cringed In addition to that there is some racial dialogue that I thought were problematic and further perpetuates certain stereotypes rather than breaking themThe last two stories World Famous and Radha Krishna were the saving grace for this collection They are connected to one another and have a completely different feel to the rest of the collection The writing feels refined and the exploration of people relationships and emotions is somewhat nuanced I think if the entire collection had been written with the same flair it could have potentially been a five star read

    EBOOK / KINDLE (If You See Me Don't Say Hi) Author Neel Patel What I liked most about this book is that it was an easy fast read The book left me lost and confused The details were clear the characters were all sad and strange Depressing but I didn’t feel bad for them I almost wanted something horrible to happen to them just so I could see some type humanness Can a book be boring and intriguing at the same time?
