Yeah, ur not the only one at all. I think everyone has a soft spot for Peeta, and they should, but I think Gale didn't really get enough time in the first two books for readers to understand his and Katniss's relationship... sorry getting off track. Anyway, I cried so much. And I NEVER cry for books. I thought Katniss didn't say enough for Rue and Thresh, especially Thresh. But maybe that's just because i expected more. I cried anyway... and I definitely cried when Peeta says "no one really needs me" and gives Katniss the locket. But when she said "I need you" and kissed him, I think he thought she was doing it for the cameras, and that's why he looked so sad, because he wanted the moment to be real. I don't think he could believe that she needed him. I cried when Peeta saw Gale being beaten, then tried to protect Katniss, then when Katniss took Gale's beating, then when she screamed for his medicine, then when she kissed him and fell asleep, then when Peeta was just looking at them... ugghh, I was bawling for the whole 5 chapters. I kinda teared up when Gale and Katniss meet in the woods and she asks him to run away, and then everything goes wrong and he throws Cinna's gloves down. I cried a little when Mags and Wiress died, and when Finnick was taking such good care of them, like they were two helpless kids, but he never mentioned that. I cried when the Capitol workers came in and started kicking Cinna, then beating him, then dragging him out... I may not like Katniss very much, but I feel awful for her. And maybe that's why Haymitch is my favorite character, because we're just alike. I don't like Katniss, but I would help her if I was in the book. And I understand Haymitch. He's not manipulating her. Sorry, this is very long and random... but to make a long story short, yes, I cried a lot.
Awesome post !!
