I met Augustus at dusk at the Funky Bones to have one last picnic. Or, at least, I thought it might be the last picnic. Being at sunset, it definitely felt more calm, relaxed…almost like we could just be ourselves and completely forget cancer even existed.
Augustus is often wondering about oblivion and if his life or death will really matter. He thinks about it so much that Hazel will actually get upset about it. His constant wondering about the meaning of his life makes him a very unique character since most people do not think as deeply as he does about the world.
