What a strange collection of stories! I almost didn't continue with it after the first story, but I am glad I did. I definitely skipped 2-3 stories -- If I couldn't understand the story after the first page or two, I just moved on to the next one. I rated the book 3/5 stars, because this is what it deserves overall. Now, if I had to rate just "Something That Needs Nothing" it would be a 5/5. If you get this book just to read that one story, it would be worth it. Otherwise, every short story is a first-person narrative from someone who is desperate, odd, lonely, delusional, and slightly creepy. This is definitely NOT a collection for every reader.

Sad, bizarre stories, often X-Rated, with a healthy dose of Chekhovian sympathies. You have to be weird to like it, but who isn't? -- which is exactly July's point.

Miranda July is a writer for the people - all of them, all the time. She writes to human experience even in outlandish situations. While several of her characters are peculiar, to say the least, they are still remarkably relatable. This was a good prequel to The First Bad Man - although I do think her ideas and style are more developed in the novel than these stories.

This is probably my favorite book of all time because it makes me feel all the feelings. I couldn't put it down and when I was done, I bought copies for various friends and had them shipped to them. It's quirky and weird and so beautifully written. Recommended by Gennifer

So are July's narrators supposed to be like mentally challenged or something? That's really the only explanation for these self-conscious, precious, & vacuous short stories. It seems to be working for her. All that said, she's not as obnoxious as Tao Lin.

July's stories are a little odd. Unfortunately, her strong sensibility makes them all seem too much the same.

This book was suggested to me by a complete stranger. I'm glad I decided to check it out. It was very different and strange but in a good, refreshing sort of way. Some of the stories I didn't care for too much but they were still interesting to read. Some of them I thought were great! I'm glad July has the guts to write about things that are very real life but are not very "main stream".

A stark short story book that raises the question yet again, "How do writers think these things up?!"

So beautifully twisted in an innocent kind of way.
