Finally. I hate when people apparently love the book and says it 'changed their life' when they can't even figure out the true character of Augustus Waters. It means those people who hate the movie (even if it hasn't come out yet) don't understand the intentions of it. Augustus pretends to be arrogant and pretentious so he can hide the fear his cancer has strengthened. So if you think he looks like a jerk and talks like one. Welcome to reality. Think again.
