I hated this chapter/this book. I try to avoid it whenever possible lol. I can't blieve SMeyer cut Edward time to, like 6 chapters (I ain't countin'). I was really disappointed by this book and how Edward just dumped Bella. :(

Chapter 3 ~ The End
by Alphie on Sun Aug 17, 2008 5:15 pm

Questions prepared by Cocoa

1. Did you feel a sense of foreboding in this chapter? At what point did you feel what was coming? Or did it take you by surprise? It took me by surprise. I was DEVASTED. :cry:

2. Just as Bella did, have you ever felt that subconscious desire to grasp a hold of a relationship slipping away?
No.

3. Edward speech was definitely a harsh one, but did it grasp reality for you as it did for Bella? Or were you expecting him to run back to her at any moment? Did you believe him as readily as Bella did? I was expecting him to run back. THANK GOODNESS HE DID. Otherwise I would've cryed and hunted SM down to rewrite it. lol

4. When Sam appeared during the search, describe your gut reaction to his presence. I thought WTH is this kid doing here? Like who is he?

5. Describe your reaction as you read the "months" pages. My mouth was like :o :shock: :o :shock: . I felt so bad for Bella. I wantd to cry. :cry:

1. Did you feel a sense of foreboding in this chapter? At what point did you feel what was coming? Or did it take you by surprise?
I knew something was up, but I had no idea that it was going to be this bad.

2. Just as Bella did, have you ever felt that subconscious desire to grasp a hold of a relationship slipping away?
I could probably say that about a friend I had. I felt like she was leaving, so I grasped on tighter. Also like Bella, my grasp didn't work.

3. Edward speech was definitely a harsh one, but did it grasp reality for you as it did for Bella? Or were you expecting him to run back to her at any moment? Did you believe him as readily as Bella did?
At first, I absolutely refused to believe he was gone. I kept reading and rereading through this chapter thinking "did that really happen?!" When I did realize that it was really happening, it hit me hard, and I just bawled.

4. When Sam appeared during the search, describe your gut reaction to his presence.
I didn't really think much of it at first. I almost wanted Bella to just lay there and have no one find her, because I still wished that Edward would just come running through the woods and pick her up, saying that he was sorry and that he made the wrong choice.

5. Describe your reaction as you read the "months" pages
I felt like I was going into depression. It struck me that this was it; I was never going to hear of Edward again.

1. Did you feel a sense of foreboding in this chapter? At what point did you feel what was coming? Or did it take you by surprise?
I could definitely tell that something was up with Edward's drawn-out depressed and deep thinking attitude but was steam-coming-out-of-my-ears angry when he finally said he was leaving her in the forest. What?!

2awesome4u wrote:the first time i read the book, when that happened i immediately panicked :o and made sure edward came back. i flipped ahead in the book *cringe*, but i think it helped me enjoy it more, rather than the people who read it searching hungrily for Edward's name. i saw Jacob better, and now i like him so much more.


I also had to flip ahead and make sure. And I wouldn't say that I love Jacob but I don't hate him either. Knowing that Edward came back let me really appreciate Jake as a person and as Bella's friend. I like his character and am almost more annoyed with Bella in Eclipse when she insists on spending so much time with a guy that she knows is in love with her. How did she think that realationship as going to play out? I thought it was really irresponsible and undeservingly cruel to Edward.

2. Just as Bella did, have you ever felt that subconscious desire to grasp a hold of a relationship slipping away?
Yes, sort of. But even if I hadn't I could understand why she was trying to hold on to their relationship. Bella's not stupid and even though she denied it in her thoughts deep down she knew something was changing.

3. Edward's speech was definitely a harsh one, but did it grasp reality for you as it did for Bella? Or were you expecting him to run back to her at any moment? Did you believe him as readily as Bella did?
With recent events (the paper cut incident) I could see why he would want to leave her but I didn't think that he would really do it! What surprised me more was that Bella accepted the lie without question, I didn't understand why she would think that he didn't want her anymore, even if she believes that she doesn't deserve him.

4. When Sam appeared during the search, describe your gut reaction to his presence.
SM spent more time talking about him than a writer would were that character not going to make another appearance so I assumed that he had some role later on. My gut reaction said that he was trouble.

5. Describe your reaction as you read the "months" pages
The "months" pages were so affective! Each turn of the page was a punch in the gut and a tightening in the chest. I got this sick ache and was very empathetic toward Bella. SM couldn't have done that better, it made the whole experience more real than if she would have written about it. I can't imagine those months passing on the page any other way!

1. Did you feel a sense of foreboding in this chapter? At what point did you feel what was coming? Or did it take you by surprise?
I knew it was coming, but I kept trying to tell myself that it wasn't! I have never felt such...emotion towards book before it was crazy. He was so distant! It just didn't make sense...I started freaking out, and flipped to the back of the book.

2. Just as Bella did, have you ever felt that subconscious desire to grasp a hold of a relationship slipping away?
Of course, even in the worst of situations, you feel like you need to save what you can't. So...yeah.

3. Edward speech was definitely a harsh one, but did it grasp reality for you as it did for Bella? Or were you expecting him to run back to her at any moment? Did you believe him as readily as Bella did?
I wasn't thinking, "Oh yeah, he is going to go back to her" because I don't think he would play such a sick joke on her. I believed him, yep.

4. When Sam appeared during the search, describe your gut reaction to his presence.
I just was like, "Wow...who is this guy?!" I mean, I was sure that Billy had told him something about the Cullens, and they had some sort of preconceived notion that the Cullens had something to do with this. But the fact that he was so willing to help Bella out, was just kind of shocking...

5. Describe your reaction as you read the "months" pages.
I felt bad...! It was so painful for her, that for months...she had nothing to say, no thoughts..just dead.
-shakes head- Thats love to its most dangerous extent! It just made me so much more eager to continue to read, just...it was like someone was gut-wrenching! :|

He dumped her because he believed that, that was what was in her best interest! This book probably was like...it takes time to grow on you. But we realize how much more deep their love for each other is!

1. Did you feel a sense of foreboding in this chapter? At what point did you feel what was coming? Or did it take you by surprise?
I felt like Edward was going to do something drastic, but I didn't think it'd be something as drastic as that. It took me by surprise when he left.. and made me cry.

2. Just as Bella did, have you ever felt that subconscious desire to grasp a hold of a relationship slipping away?
No, I didn't. I haven't been in a relationship yet....

3. Edward speech was definitely a harsh one, but did it grasp reality for you as it did for Bella? Or were you expecting him to run back to her at any moment? Did you believe him as readily as Bella did?
For the first few chapters afterwards, I thought he may come back. But once we got farther in, I knew he wasn't coming back for a while.

4. When Sam appeared during the search, describe your gut reaction to his presence.
Ok, to be honest, I wanted him to die. He ruined the moment for me..... I wanted to hear more of Bella's thoughts. LOl

5. Describe your reaction as you read the "months" pages

I was like "WFT" I had no idea what was going on at first.

1. Did you feel a sense of foreboding in this chapter? At what point did you feel what was coming? Or did it take you by surprise?

I knew something was coming. I couldn't out my fingure on what though. It didn't really take me by surprise when Edward finally told Bella he was leaving, but I teared up.

2. Just as Bella did, have you ever felt that subconscious desire to grasp a hold of a relationship slipping away?

Yes. I knew exactly how Bella felt. New Moon could honestly be an alternate view of my life.

3. Edward speech was definitely a harsh one, but did it grasp reality for you as it did for Bella? Or were you expecting him to run back to her at any moment? Did you believe him as readily as Bella did?

I was hoping beyond all hope that Edward would come back and wrap his arms around Bella and say "Never mind. I can't do this." But he never did...

4. When Sam appeared during the search, describe your gut reaction to his presence.

I didn't really know much about Sam, so I was mostly wonering why he was even there. I thought that it would be Charlie that would find her and carry her back hom.

5. Describe your reaction as you read the "months" pages

That was the part when I just out right cried. Ithought that Edward would be back in a few days, but that confirmed that he wasn't coming back.

1. Did you feel a sense of foreboding in this chapter? At what point did you feel what was coming? Or did it take you by surprise?
-i got a bad feeling from the beginning of the chapter, but i just didnt know what was wrong!

2. Just as Bella did, have you ever felt that subconscious desire to grasp a hold of a relationship slipping away?
-nope.

3. Edward speech was definitely a harsh one, but did it grasp reality for you as it did for Bella? Or were you expecting him to run back to her at any moment? Did you believe him as readily as Bella did?
-i dont know what i was expecting, i was just in total shock! i think i believed him then, but in my heart i knew he wouldnt ever stop loving bella.

4. When Sam appeared during the search, describe your gut reaction to his presence.
-to be honest i didnt have one, i was still in shock from what had just happend for me to register anything about sam other then that he was the one who found bella.

5. Describe your reaction as you read the "months" pages
-my mouth litterally dropped open, and i just stared at the pages for a couple minutes.

1. Did you feel a sense of foreboding in this chapter? At what point did you feel what was coming? Or did it take you by surprise?

Oh i knew what was coming, as soon as he started becoming so distant towards her, i actually could sense it before this chapter even started...i was so sad...and when he actually left her, i was sobbing hysterically (so happy i was alone in my dorm at the time :? ) as bad as this sounds, i had to skip through the book till at least alice showed up again...yes, i did go back and read what i missed

2. Just as Bella did, have you ever felt that subconscious desire to grasp a hold of a relationship slipping away?

wow, when i was reading this chapter i was without a doubt having many flash backs to previous relationships. And like bella, i did try as hard as i could to hold on, but its no use really, once a guy decides its over there really is no changing his mind

3. Edward speech was definitely a harsh one, but did it grasp reality for you as it did for Bella? Or were you expecting him to run back to her at any moment? Did you believe him as readily as Bella did?

I knew he wasn't going to turn around, but i knew he didn't mean it. I'd read midnight sun before hand, so i was aware that he was only leaving her because he felt he had to in order for her to be safe.

4. When Sam appeared during the search, describe your gut reaction to his presence.

honestly? i didn't care about who found her or who he was, i was too busy trying to read through my tears and sobbing ^_^

5. Describe your reaction as you read the "months" pages

I knew how she felt. those months were full of existing, not living. She was just there, trying to function, but not really having much of a reason to. After all, the person she gave her heart to smashed it into dust and left her...if she could avoid feeling that pain, why wouldn't she
