So then why does she fall in love with a barbaric kidnapper of no intellectual accomplishment at all? And if she cares about intellectual attainment, why is she belittling the bookstore owner who is responsible for what meager exposure to literature she has in the first place? This little girl looked down on these people because they were poor, and because they were not among the movers and shakers. She rejects the intrinsic value of human life, and instead judges people by superficial metrics of their life circumstance with a sort of cheer-leading exuberance that even the most ardent conservatives can't muster. It is entirely disgusting.
