G is for Gale, as in . . . Gale vs. Peeta.
Now, I might not be a romantic, and I may not have actually read all of the Hunger Games books, but I’ve read the first book and watched the movie. And I’m not afraid to give my completely uninformed and biased opinion.
Peeta has a few things going for him. He’s sincere, giving, selfless, confident in front of a crowd, and he can launch a 100 lb. bag of flour over his head (which is always a bit hit with the ladies). Plus, he journeyed to the center of the earth and beat Zathura.
He has a few strikes against him as well. First off, his name is Peeta and he makes bread. (Peeta bread. Ha! He must get really tired of that joke.) And he’s a little short. Katniss will need to have no problem being the taller one.
At first, I thought no way, Gale is a girl’s name.
Then I realized . . .
Gale is Thor’s little brother.(It's true)
(Oh yeah, and he’s an extremely good guy, competent, loving . . . and I think Katniss really loves him.)
