1. Were you surprised by the LaPush wolves granting passage to Alice and Jasper or their willingness to stand with the Cullens?
I wasn't surprised by them granting passage, but I was surprised by them wanting to stand with the Cullens. But it does make sense.2. J. Jenks is not a name we’ve heard in any of the three previous books, but seems to be very important to Alice. Why do you think Alice was so secretive about making sure Bella was the only one to learn J. Jenks name?
Because she wants only Bella to know.3. Edward enters the cottage after only 13 seconds when Bella has asked for 30. Does Edward not trust Bella? What does this say about his self-control and new relationship with Bella since she became a vampire?
He trusts her, he just can't stand being without her, not even for a few seconds. And he's curious off course 4. Should Renesmee be shielded from what’s going on around her, because of her, as Bella wants, or should she be told everything as Jacob does?
She should be told, but on a level she can understand it. She's mentally older than a child her age, but not adult yet.5. Do you think Bella’s gloomy reasoning is sound or should she be more optimistic like Emmett and the rest of the Cullens?
Off course she's gloomy, that's Bella.
