Katniss VS Zeus

The love in both books are very different but have some similiarities. In both books there are characters in the books that fall in love for each other and do whatever it takes to be with each other. Katniss is the Zeus of her book. While Katniss has a boy at home who she has had feelings for and the feeling back for her is mutual, she decides to be with Peeta during the games. Similar to Zeus who just dates other girls and cheats on everyone, even sometimes refers to incest. Although Zeus is a lot worse in the love game part of life, Katniss follows right behind him; making both characters somewhat alike
