So this little cigarette right here has sparked a whole new brand of TFiOS hate, much of which is coming from people who claimed to love the book.
Many people are now pointing out how “pretentious” Augustus is, and I can’t help but think, You’re only just now realizing this. He was written to be a seemingly pretentious and arrogant person. The acknowledgement of this is actually highly important because, without it, the book loses the message that a hero’s journey is that of strength to weakness.
Augustus Waters has big dreams for himself. He wants to be known and remembered; he wants to be a hero; he wants to be seen as perfect. But there’s already something standing in his way… He has a disability, and society tells him that a person cannot be both perfect and disabled. So what does he do? He creates a persona for himself. He tries to appear older and wiser than he is. But the pretentious side of him is NOT who he truly is. It’s all an act. (This is evident in the fact that he often uses words in the wrong context.)
And when his cancer returns, we begin to see his mask cracking. The true Augustus begins to bleed through… Hazel even takes notice of this from time to time. And by the time we get to the gas station scene, Augustus is no longer the picture of perfection he was when we met him. The play has been canceled. The actor must reveal himself. And he’s revealed to be a weak, defenseless boy, succumbing to the cancer that is made of him.
THE PRETENTIOUSNESS IS INTENTIONAL. It stands to show Augustus’s journey from flawless to flawed, from strong to weak. It’s the key to understanding that Augustus was the hero he always wanted to be, even if he didn’t realized it.

I couldn’t get this .gif to work on my phone
The overworked Chinese laborer who made this phone after being kept awake for 46 hours, delirious with sleeplessness and her eyes stinging due to the toxins in the air around her would be rolling on the floor right now.
Mtumbe Ngoube, the 11 year old African girl who is being kept as a slave in the Congo, who spends all hours of the day digging up the minerals necessary to make that phone would be clapping for you right now if she had any arms. The militia cut them off.
THE PHONE WAS ALREADY BROKEN THE PHONE WAS ALREADY BROKEN STOP TRYING TO GUILT TRIP ME ITS NOT EVEN WORKING also how does the slave girl dig with no arms
