Re: The Bella Effect

Since I don't identify as a "feminist," I wouldn't even have a problem with it if Bella was some kind of anti-feminist. I don't think she is anti-feminist, but even if she was, I wouldn't have an issue. If one side (the feminists) can have their fair share of the soapbox, why can't we? The fact is, ...

Re: Chapter 11 ~ Complications

1. Each time they are in science class, Bella describes an electric-like current passing between her and Edward. What do you think this current is? I assumed that it was metaphorical/mental. 2. During all the questions, we learn that the thing Edward asks the most about are books Bella has read. Wh...

Re: Q and A with Shannon Hale

I doubt Shannon Hale would have been able to do another interview, and that was one of my favorite things about it -- the idea of two writers relating to each other like that. A newer interview might not have that unique quality to it, in which case I'm fine with what we were given. There will be mo...

Re: Chapter 10 ~ Interrogations

1. How do you think Edward and Bella both did in trying to behave naturally around each other on the "morning after?" Was Bella too nervous or shy? Did Edward seem more open? I don't think she was too nervous at all. In fact, Edward might have hoped that she was MORE nervous, considering how he kep...

Re: Chapter 9 ~ Theory

1. There are so many humorous quotes from this chapter. The "zingers" keep coming. Which is your favorite from chapter nine and why? "I hear voices in my head and you're worried you're the freak?" -The moment was so tense and then this cracked me up. "How long have you been seventeen?" "A while." -...

Re: Chapter 8 ~ Port Angeles

1. At what point were you worried for Bella's safety with the thugs? Or did you have some idea that Edward would show up just in the nick of time? Almost right away, and even more so as they began to follow/herd her. And yes, I did have some idea that Edward would get involved. 2. How did you feel ...

Re: Chapter 7 ~ Nightmare

1. The music group that Bella falls asleep listening to has been revealed by Stephenie to be Linkin Park. What do you think of Linkin Park, and about Phil's taste in music since he gave Bella the CD? Not a fan, I hate to say. My tastes run more toward country, jazz, and oldies. 2. In Bella's nightm...

Re: Chapter 6 - Scary Stories

1. What was your initial thought about the fact that Charlie told Bella Goat Rock wasn't a good place for camping? Did you wonder what else Edward might be doing up there? I figured it was a hunting trip. Or that the bears wouldn't present a problem for a guy who can thrown cars around. :P 2. How d...

Re: Chapter 5 ~ Blood Type

1. Do you personally relate to Bella feeling queasy around blood? Yes, times a million. Although, for me, needles are worse than blood. 2. Were you afraid for Bella when Edward scooped her up? Did you think the fact that there was blood around might endanger her? No, somehow I knew he wouldn't hurt...

Re: Chapter 4 ~ Invitations

1. Why do you think Bella doesn't want to go to the spring dance? She could easily just have said to anyone, "Let's just go as friends". Why is it that from day one, none of the boys appealed to her? It never seems to be about the guys. Well, she is more interested in Edward than any of them, but, i...
