Decent Essays

In this book, The Hunger Games, by Suzanne Collins, both Gale and Peeta are a big part of Katniss’s life, but does not coexist well together in her thoughts. These two boys that grew up in the Seam of district 12 each have their own differences, but as the book draws to an end, they push their cons aside and ends up having many similarities to helping out Katniss to survive in the game. In addition, Gale and Peeta did have a signify for Katniss Everdeen, the girl who was on fire. Gale is tall, good looking, and has grey eyes whose name was in the glass ball for the reaping forty two times to get the food source his family needs. Even though it’s not enough to feed the five members, he’s eighteen which is the last year he has to “participate” to get a job and earn money. Gale and Katniss wasn't the best of buddies till they were 12 years old and 14 years old (that means they were friends for about six years). Both of their fathers died in a coal mine on the cold January making them lead and provide food for their love ones. For Gale who secretly hunts and snares in the meadow to get what he needs, Katniss can be herself, but once she is in the game, her family, Gale, and everyone in district 12 is a mutual need to survive like always until they are departed. Peeta, is the representative for the boys of district 12 who is stocky build, medium height, has ashy blond hair, and whose eyes are blue. He lives in the richer or better side of the Seam since his family owns a bakery.
