Re: Chapter 27 ~ Needs

1. What is Bella weeping for during that long night of mourning? Is Jake at the forefront of her mind or is she grieving for the humanity she is giving up? Do you think Edward knows what she is mourning over? What are the “adjustments” Bella has made which allow her to move on in the morning? I tho...

Re: Chapter 26 - Ethics

1. What does Bella mean when she tells Jake “I never had a choice”? Is she saying she had no choice about falling in love with Edward -- it was a kind of compulsion like imprinting? Or that her love for him is irrevocable: once she fell in love, she could never love someone else instead? Or does sh...

Re: Chapter 25 - Mirror

1. How did you feel about Jacob's injury and Bella's reaction to it? I thought it was sad for Jake to be the only one to get hurt out of everyone fighting on their side. Bella’s reaction was normal, she loved him. I thought it was sad for Edward though. 2. Did you suspect that the Volturi’s late ar...

Re: Chapter 15 ~ Wager

1. Were you surprised at how undiscouraged Jacob remained, despite Bella’s assertions that she loves only Edward? I was a little surprised that he wasn’t more hurt by Bella’s feelings about Edward. She was being really honest, it’s almost like he just ignored most of what she was saying. He was jus...

Re: Chapter 16 ~ Epoch

1. When Bella made the connection between the thief and the Seattle newborns, were you surprised? If not, when did you figure it out? I wasn’t surprised. They were emphasizing the Seattle homicides from early on in the book and there had to be some type of connection to the Cullen’s or Bella. When ...

Re: Chapter 17 ~ Alliance

1. Do you think the majority of the people came to the party to celebrate with Bella or just to see the inside of the Cullen's house? They were definitely there to see the Cullen’s house. Bella only really had 3 high school friends, which were really friends (Angela, Ben, Mike). 2. Were you as surp...

Re: Chapter 18 ~ Instruction

1. Do you feel Bella’s fears for Jacob and the pack being involved in the fight are reasonable? Bella’s fears are reasonable. She didn’t see Jacob or the pack as being strong like the Cullen’s. She knew them as humans, as kids, most of them younger than her. She never really saw the pack in action ...

Re: Chapter 19 ~ Selfish

1. Is it selfish of Bella to ask Edward to sit out the battle, knowing that it will increase the danger to the rest of his family? This is a hard one. I think it is selfish of Bella. However, it’s understandable. She wants nothing more than to be with him. Also, it’ll be easier for Edward to protec...

Re: Chapter 20 ~ Compromise

1. Can you see why Bella is afraid to marry Edward? Is it something that would affect your decision to get married at a young age? I can see Bella’s prospective on why she is afraid to marry Edward, in today’s world. However, I have to admit – it is a bit strange that Bella was so eager to become i...
