For me, Bogg was the hardest to loose. I wordlessly choked on the word when he died. It was unexpected, and completely changed the scenario. Even leggless, I was still expecting him to pull through. Then he didnt. With the weight of him gone, I felt the instability of the group all the way through to the end of the book.
Bogg was one of those charactors I imagined moving to District 12, and living happily ever after with all of Katniss' other friends. Prim, Ma Everdean, Greasey Say, Haymich, Johanna, Beety, Finnick, Annie, Bogg, Bogg's kid, Peeta, Gale, Effee, Cinna, Porcha, Designe Crew, Mayor's family unharmed,.. the notion of Happily Ever After has ruined my sense of reality.
Good Night, and Merry Christmas
