By the end of the series, I had lost my interest in Gale. During Catching Fire I would have been fine with either Peeta or Gale, but in the end, Gale seemed to have turned cold and moved on from Katniss. Peeta seemed loyal, whenever he was himself.
Yeah, catching fire made me feel like nothing good was ever going to happen again. Then in Mockingjay, I felt like Gale was a cold mean man. I like Peetah because he is loyal to Katniss while he is sane.
