Considering that they were, in some ways, so much alike, I thought that we might as well compare/contrast Rue and Prim. Who did you think was the stronger character? Who did you like better?

Rue is definitely stronger and I liked her better since Prim seemed a little too little kidish and she was dependent

Rue, she was a fighter and went out with a bang. While Prim was strong in her own way, and noble, she was on the front lines during Mockingjay, I still liked Rue better. She could definetally hold her own.

I can't decide which I like better...they are both, as you have said, strong in their own way. Rue was certainly much stronger in the first book, and had she lived, we may have seen her grow more and become stronger. However, Prim was also strong. It had to take a lot to be brave enough to go out into the thick of things during this more or less civil war as a rebel medic. We also see that Prim becomes very wise as she grows older. Like, when she was talking to Katniss about Peeta's capture while they are being held underground during the bombings of 13.

I will definitely agree that overall, Rue was sooooooooo much stronger than Prim, and that, at the beginning of the series, Prim whined too much. But, I think that as Prim matured, she also became strong.

Prim has a way of knowing exactly what's happening in every situation and saying it.

But Rue was just amazing

Right, well said. Prim was very understanding and strong. She wasn't strong like able to sneak around and kill people strong, but it must have taken a lot of strength to survive without Katniss and then launch herself into the rebellion as a medic.
