People criticizing TFIOS because Gus sounds pretentious???

that was the point???

like literally at his fake funeral his best friend talks about how fucking pretentious he is and how annoying it was???

It was one of his character flaws? He was deliberately written that way?

You’re not being clever or critical by pointing it out, you are literally stating a fact about the novel that the author deliberately wrote


my problem with writing stories is that i’d rather imagine it and play it out in my mind than actually put it into words 

"You can’t really define why someone’s cool."

“What the hell were you doing for the last year alone on that ship? i’m guessing it was one swashbuckling adventure after another, until you decided to come back and save me.”
