All idea of the character in this game is about famous video game Pokémon.
As such, he realizes that he is perceived as different than most kids, as even the self-professed weird kids don't want to hang out with him as he is the target of bullying.
For the sake of accuracy, both the novel and the film should more rightly be titled `About TWO Boys,' since the story focuses not only on 12-year old Marcus, but on 38-year old Will, a man totally dedicated to the proposition that any man who so desires can live quite happily on his own private little urban island, thank you very much.
Will's `island' is his own London flat, which he has equipped with all the accoutrements of comfort and diversion that modern technology in the form of computers, big screen TV's and DVD players - can afford.
The voice-over narration by both Will and Marcus, which introduces us to their characters and keeps us informed as to their mental progress throughout the film, is remarkably clever and droll.
Yet, the characters never come across as smug, smart-alecky or flippant.Part of the taunts against him are the fact that he sings and speaks to himself without even realizing that he is doing it.
