FF #9 - disappointing characters

Feature & Follow is hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read weekly. You can join me and post the links to your own #FF posts in the comments below.
The question this week 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 think not many of you will agree with me but...

Gale from The Hunger Games
At first, I liked him more than Peeta. He understood Katniss, he was the one always by her side. I didn't exactly cheer on his romance with Katniss, but I wasn't really against it. But then the third book happened and he started to act... strangely, to put it mildly. I was a little disappointed in him.

That was a seriously hard question! It took me a while. I usually love or hate a character immediately and stick with it to the end, it rarely happens that I change my mind about him or her. :)

What is your answer to this question? Link me your FF/answer in the comments, so I can peek.

  1. I have yet to read the series, but Gale seems to be a common answer.

  2. I agree about Gale. He was veeery strange in the last book. :) I'm a new gfc follower.

  3. Thank you for dropping by Book that Thing. Happy Friday to you as well. I'm following back :-)
    I haven't read The Hunger Games, so I can't really agree or disagree w/ you, but I will tell you that I HATE a character that starts acting "strangely" without any reason being given at all (as in not even explained by the end of the book or series).
    That really annoys me lol.
    Yup, you should give the Elemental Assassin series a shot. I LOVE it! The character I was disappointed in was not a main character, so no worries.

  4. See, I still have a lot of respect for Gale even though what happened in Mockingjay... IDK, I'm so TEAM GALE it's terrible.

  5. Aww Gale again lol. I was always a fan of his so I couldn't throw him under the bus xP

    I'm following you back :]

  6. Thanks for stopping by.
    And I am sorry that you are dissapointed in this character.

    Happy friday!

  10. This totally makes sense. Gale disappointed me too, especially since I had such high hopes for him. New follower.

  11. I liked Gale but I always loved Peeta more. To me, Gale just kinda fell of a cliff at the end of Mockingjay. I wasn't satisfied with the way Suzanne Collins ended the story with him... oh well..

  12. Thank you for swinging by and following me at Blethering About Book :)

    I have only read the first Hunger Games book - I couldn't take to the 2nd book at all. But I hate it when characters go weird like that. I'll have to push through with the books to see what happen with him now :)

  14. Thanks for stopping by my blog & following! I'm returning the favor! :)

    You're right about Gale being weird in Mockingjay. But we had not been given a huge amount of info about his character up to that point to know if that was just a natural progression of who he was. I was never a fan of his so it only bothered me that Katniss wasn't sure if she had feelings for him or not because I so wouldn't have! :D

  15. I hadn't though about Gale when I was writing my post, but I definitley agree with you.

  16. Popatrz, nawet nie zauważyłaś, że z jednego kraju jesteśmy ;P Dobrze, że się po twoim imieniu zorientowałam.
    Rzeczywiście te Igrzyska śmierci takie dobre? Wszędzie je widzę, wygrałam ebooka i nie wiem nawet czy warto się zabierać czy to taka sława na poziomie Zmierzchu... ><
    Dobra, rozpisałam się, ale śledzę, tak miło zobaczyć Polkę tutaj <3 Na pewno będę wpadać :3
