Augustus Waters was a self-aggrandizing bastard. […] Augustus Waters talked so much that he’d interrupt you at his own funeral. And he was pretentious: Sweet Jesus Christ, that kid never took a piss without pondering the abundant metaphorical resonances of human waste production. And he was vain: I do not believe I have ever met a more physically attractive person who was more acutely aware of his own physical attractiveness.
—Actual quote from the book describing Augustus Waters for all the people who didn’t understand that Augustus fucking Waters was flawed while reading the book.
