Clarisse says that '' people don't talk about anything ... nobody says anything different from anyone else ... my uncle said it was different once" why does this bother her?

People have no individuality..... no individual thoughts or opinions. The elimination of books eliminated deep thought and conversations. Conversations themselves became benign and uninteresting. Clarisse wants to be challenged and engaged. She doesn't want to hear what people have been conditioned to say and think, she wants to know how they feel inside. To her, most people are boring.... and in this context, she isn't too far off the mark.
