So let's start! The question for this Friday is:

Q: Have you had a character that disappointed you? One that you fell in love with and then "broke up" with later on in either the series or a stand-alone book? Tell us about him or her.

I had to think quite a bit for this question, but the more I thought of it, the more I decided that the character I chose for this question was the most suitable one.. and that character which disappointed me the most towards/at the end of the series is Gale from The Hunger Games. Without spoiling anything, I feel like this character's presence faded (for me) in the series, especially towards the end of Mockingjay. I was just so disappointed how he ended up to be at the end of the book that it was almost shocking!

And may I just add, the movie of The Hunger Games made me dislike Gale more... I try not to get too influenced by movies which are produced from books or let it cloud my initial perception of the book, but I just found it so corny and overdone when almost every time Katniss and Peeta had a romantic moment, they showed Gale's 'sad' and 'disappointed' face... I almost wished that the they hadn't included that. But I guess the producers were trying to throw some humor in the whole story, as it is honestly filled with mostly drama (which I like)!

What do you guys think?


  1. So I'm not the only one who noticed the Gale face! But you've got to admit he is very hot in the movie <3

    1. Good to know I am not the only one, haha! Alright, despite it happening... I guess Gale does have his looks going for him ;) Thanks for the follow and adding my button!

      See you around :)

  2. Yup. Boo on Gale. I did think the movie didn't adequately develop Gale's character - not as much as the book.
