Essay about Katniss

Gale would be a better boyfriend for Katniss than Peeta. Many people have trouble deciding on weather Gale or Peeta would make a better boyfriend for Katniss. Peeta was the other tribute for district 12, while Gale is Katniss's hunting partner. Katniss is torn between weather to choose Gale or Peeta to be her boyfriend. Gale would be a better boyfriend for Katniss because he can survive on his own in the woods, he is caring because he helped Katniss hunt and showed her how to make snares, finally Gale can hunt and provide for Katniss.

Gale can survive in the woods since he has spent most of his life hunting in the woods. Gale is an experienced hunter and can find anything edible in there. In addition Katniss wouldn't have to worry about him scarring away game and eating poisonous berries. This would be so much easier for Katniss because while in the arena Peeta scared away all of the game and almost ate nightlocks but Foxface ate them first. On page 314 it states "Forget about Cato, you're scaring off every rabbit in a ten-mile radius."" On page 318 it states "They're nightlock. You'll be dead before they reach your stomach."" This shows that Peeta doesn't know much about the woods and won't be able to survive out there on his own. All in all Gale would be a better boyfriend for Katniss because he can survive on his own in the woods.

Gale is caring because he helped show Katniss set snares after her father died and helps her provide for her family ever since. Also, he took care of Prim and Katniss's mother while Katniss was away in the arena. Another reason Gale is caring because after Katniss said good-bye to her mother and Prim Gale gave some good advice for her in the arena and Haymitch didn't really give much advice. On page 35 it states "He'll also bring the game - he and I made a pact about this a year or so ago - and will probably not asking for compensation, but they should thank him with some sort of trade, like milk or medicine."" This shows that Gale is caring because he is willing to give his family less food to provide for Katniss's family. In conclusion, Gale is a much clearer pick for Katniss that Peeta.

Finally, Gale is a good provider because in the arena Katniss had to find and gather food in the arena for Peeta and herself. Another reason, Peeta can really only bake but the bread that they can eat has to be stale, burt, or nobody wanted it. While, Gale can hunt, fish, gather berries, and herbs from the woods. Furthermore Gale and Katniss have a better friendship than Peeta and Katniss because they have spend almost everyday in the woods together for four years. I had one friend and we spent about the whole summer in the wood behind his house and we had a great friendship so Katniss and Gale should have an even better friendship.
