    I'm really struggling to find useful 'About a Boy' quotes for the whole text questions in the English exam next week..
    does anyone have good quotes that are useful for characters, themes etc?
    it would be really helpful!

    Will - At the beginning of the book he thinks he's "cool", he only likes materialistic things like "videos" and "magazines"
    "His career as a serial nice guy had begun"
    he's also selfish & dislikes commitment-
    "you had to live in your own bubble" "he was one of life's visitors - he didn't want to be visited"
    however he becomes friends with marcus and forms a relationship with him
    "Will found himself working Marcus' visits into the fabric of his day"
    "he would have to take Marcus under his wing"
    at the end he feels like "a chick whose egg had been cracked open" - vulnerable as he is in a relationship with Rachel
