Peeta Vs. Gale Tags: Hunger Games Peeta vs. Gale

In Suzanne Collinsí The Hunger Games the main character, Katniss, has two love interests. The first is her life-long friend Gale, and the second is the son of a baker who she met while fighting in the arena. Fans of The Hunger Games argue over which boy is the better match for Katniss, but really, they are both two very different characters who each have good qualities.

Gale is Katnissí best friend. Heís known her since she was really young, and has helped take care of her and her family for many years. Heís very tough because of the fact he had very little and had to provide for families from a very young age. He loves the outdoors, and has a cold, icy personality like Katniss, at least on the outside. Once someone gets on his bad side, heís not very forgiving. Heís strong willed and very smart, but heís a little hot-headed and reckless, and likely to just charge right into something without thinking about it. Mostly he hates the Capitol, and would fight to destroy them no matter what the odds. Inside though, he can be kind and compassionate, and a very good friend. He can hunt very well. Gale is also tall, dark, and almost every girl is in love with him. Although he starts out as just a friend to Katniss, by the end of the series it seems like there could be something more between them.

Peeta is almost the complete opposite of Gale. He is someone Katniss met and teamed up with when they were both trying to stay alive in the Hunger Games arena. His father was a baker, so he had always lived a much more comfortable lifestyle then the rest of District 12, and was less accustomed to having to fight for his food and defend himself. He is a nice, compassionate person, but he shows it to everyone that meets him. Also, when Peeta is angry, itís very easy for him to lose his temper. Heís very open about everything and shows his emotions all the time. He has a talent for speaking and painting, and decorating cakes. Because he is so caring, he can be very ignorant and naÔve about some things and the ways of the world. Heís not an outdoorsy person at all, but he can fight if he has too. Peeta is average sized and blonde. Heís had a crush on Katniss since he was very young, and since heíd saved her life on many occasions, she felt indebted to him and started to fall in love with him.

The main similarity between Gale and Peeta is that they both love Katniss and they would do anything to keep her alive. Other than the fact they both grew up in the same district, they donít really have anything in common.

Peeta and Gale are complete opposites in every way. Looks, personalities, the way they carry themselves. They are two different people, but they are both examples of good people. A person that had both the qualities of Gale and Peeta balanced out right would be pretty much perfect.
