Preface to Book III

Postby Alphie » Tue Jun 02, 2009 11:51 pm

Many thanks to Una for her work on this one. So many good questions for such a small bit of text!

1. Bella is facing down the Volturi in battle. She talks about “we’re going to die.” When you first read this, who do you feel is with her?

2. The numbers are not in Bella’s favor. How many Volturi did you imagine were then, when you first read this chapter? Any particular Volturi did you think were there?

3. As Bella’s panic rises, she her thoughts go to the “precious one.” Who do you think is her “precious one” that she is guarding from the Volturi?

4. The burst of light causes Bella’s feelings to change. What do you feel is that burst of light? What would change Bella’s perception?

5. When you reach the end, Bella is preparing to attack. What were your feelings when you first read this? What predictions, fears, and theories did you have at this point?

1. Bella is facing down the Volturi in battle. She talks about “we’re going to die.” When you first read this, who do you feel is with her?
I figured, at the very least, it would be Edward there with her.

2. The numbers are not in Bella’s favor. How many Volturi did you imagine were then, when you first read this chapter? Any particular Volturi did you think were there?
I had no idea how many of the Volturi were there. I figured it would be Caius, Marcus, Aro, Jane, Felix and Demitri at least. They were the ones that had the biggest part in New Moon so it seemed logical for them to be there.

3. As Bella’s panic rises, she her thoughts go to the “precious one.” Who do you think is her “precious one” that she is guarding from the Volturi?
I was fairly certain it was Reneesme she was talking about.

4. The burst of light causes Bella’s feelings to change. What do you feel is that burst of light? What would change Bella’s perception?
I had absolutely no idea.

5. When you reach the end, Bella is preparing to attack. What were your feelings when you first read this? What predictions, fears, and theories did you have at this point?
That made me nervous, I couldn't imagine Bella attacking anyone. I figured thing would turn out alright in the end because Bella and Edward had been through too much to have the book end sadly.

1. Bella is facing down the Volturi in battle. She talks about “we’re going to die.” When you first read this, who do you feel is with her?
I figured Edward was with her, and most likely the rest of the Cullens. They were a family now, and they would always stick together.

2. The numbers are not in Bella’s favor. How many Volturi did you imagine were then, when you first read this chapter? Any particular Volturi did you think were there?
I didnt know how many they would be. But I was sure Aro, Marcus and Caius would be there. And Jane.

3. As Bella’s panic rises, she her thoughts go to the “precious one.” Who do you think is her “precious one” that she is guarding from the Volturi?
Renesmee, for sure.

4. The burst of light causes Bella’s feelings to change. What do you feel is that burst of light? What would change Bella’s perception?
I really don't know. I guess she just saw that she would fight to the very end to save her daughter and her familiy. And either she would win, or she would die trying.

5. When you reach the end, Bella is preparing to attack. What were your feelings when you first read this? What predictions, fears, and theories did you have at this point?
I was scared. This was the first time Bella would actually be in a battle, and I had no idea how she would handle that. I felt confident that everything would turn ot fine, though. SM wouldn't kill any of her big characters in the last book. So I felt it in my heart that they would make it.

1. Bella is facing down the Volturi in battle. She talks about “we’re going to die.” When you first read this, who do you feel is with her?

Edward, certainly. Maybe Jacob & the rest of the family. Whenever Bella says "we," though, I always think of Edward.

2. The numbers are not in Bella’s favor. How many Volturi did you imagine were then, when you first read this chapter? Any particular Volturi did you think were there?

Well, I thought Aro & Caius & Jane and her twin were there... I imagined it was probaly about a dozen or so Volturi.

3. As Bella’s panic rises, she her thoughts go to the “precious one.” Who do you think is her “precious one” that she is guarding from the Volturi?

Renesmee, of course, as foreshadowed by Bella's dreams before the wedding and on her honeymoon.

4. The burst of light causes Bella’s feelings to change. What do you feel is that burst of light? What would change Bella’s perception?

I can't honestly remember my thoughts about the burst of light -- maybe that it was Edward appearing? The only thing that would change Bella's perspective is mostly likely directly involving Edward.

5. When you reach the end, Bella is preparing to attack. What were your feelings when you first read this? What predictions, fears, and theories did you have at this point?

I was pretty sure she was been a vampire at that point and that maybe she had some sort of physical power that would help them. I predicted that someone important on the Cullen side would be lost and was worried it would be one of the family but I really had no idea what was going to happen.

Certainly Edward. I don't know who else at this point.

2. The numbers are not in Bella’s favor. How many Volturi did you imagine were then, when you first read this chapter? Any particular Volturi did you think were there?
Aro, Marcus, Caius, Demetri, Jane, Alec and Felix. I didn't know of the others.

3. As Bella’s panic rises, her thoughts go to the “precious one.” Who do you think is her “precious one” that she is guarding from the Volturi?
I didn't know who the precious one is.

4. The burst of light causes Bella’s feelings to change. What do you feel is that burst of light? What would change Bella’s perception?
I didn't see that part and I still don't know what it means.

5. When you reach the end, Bella is preparing to attack. What were your feelings when you first read this? What predictions, fears, and theories did you have at this point?
I was scared she was going to die.

edward and the cullens. i would have said "go figure" to anyone else! ;)

2. The numbers are not in Bella’s favor. How many Volturi did you imagine were then, when you first read this chapter? Any particular Volturi did you think were there?
probably Jane, and i think Alec is a package deal with her so him too. Felix and Demetri. i didnt imagine Caius and Marcus there, i thought it would just be Aro. ( excuse my spelling! dont have the book in front of me! )

3. As Bella’s panic rises, she her thoughts go to the “precious one.” Who do you think is her “precious one” that she is guarding from the Volturi?
i dont think we knew rennesme at this point, so i figured whoever it was from her vivid dreams before.

4. The burst of light causes Bella’s feelings to change. What do you feel is that burst of light? What would change Bella’s perception?
oh dear, cant remember that part :? .......im not sure!

5. When you reach the end, Bella is preparing to attack. What were your feelings when you first read this? What predictions, fears, and theories did you have at this point?
im agreeing with sazykid! i thought, "no way. bella in a fight? hmm". But i knew everything would be okay. Stephenie would'nt do anything drastic. ;)

Edwards, Jacob, Renesmee (though we didn't really know her at that point), and the Cullens

2. The numbers are not in Bella’s favor. How many Volturi did you imagine were then, when you first read this chapter? Any particular Volturi did you think were there?
I didn't think it'd be all of them. Aro and Jane, for sure. Demetri, Felix, Alec.

3. As Bella’s panic rises, her thoughts go to the “precious one.” Who do you think is her “precious one” that she is guarding from the Volturi?
Her daughter.

4. The burst of light causes Bella’s feelings to change. What do you feel is that burst of light? What would change Bella’s perception?
I'm not sure... 'Cause she didn't know about her shield at that point. *shrugs* Not sure.

5. When you reach the end, Bella is preparing to attack. What were your feelings when you first read this? What predictions, fears, and theories did you have at this point?
I was like, oh my God. Bella? In a fight? Haha, but I knew SM wouldn't kill major people off. But still I was like I wanna see Bella in a fight!

Her family- the Cullens

2. The numbers are not in Bella’s favor. How many Volturi did you imagine were then, when you first read this chapter? Any particular Volturi did you think were there?
Not many, maybe several more than in Eclipse. The main ones being Jane and Alec

3. As Bella’s panic rises, she her thoughts go to the “precious one.” Who do you think is her “precious one” that she is guarding from the Volturi?
Renesemee.. she had all those dreams basically the same before she got pregnant.

4. The burst of light causes Bella’s feelings to change. What do you feel is that burst of light? What would change Bella’s perception?
Maybe a fire? Explosion? Maybe someone being burned made her very angry.

5. When you reach the end, Bella is preparing to attack. What were your feelings when you first read this? What predictions, fears, and theories did you have at this point?
Bella was never the one who had to fight before so I guess kind of worried.. everyone else always saved her and this time she's fighting!
