1. What were your impressions of the house that the Cullens live in?
i was expecting something beautiful, you know, to go along with the Cullens 2. This is the first time Bella meets the Cullens ( other than Carlisle ) and gets to for an impression based on her experience alone. In other words, Edward no longer describes them for her, she gets to see them herself. In this chapter, she mostly interacts with Carlisle and Esme, what were your impressions of them.
Carlisle= well, by this time, i was already totally in love with Carlisle
so to actually see more of him acting "normal" was a plus for me
Esme= i was really looking forward to know about Esme. to me, she expressed a "mom" vibe 3. There is a brief mention of Alice having seen the visit of other vampires. What was your reaction to this when you first read it? Did you have any idea that it would turn into the large disaster that takes over until the end of the novel?
i was like 'oh crap' and wanted to read ahead 4. Edward and Bella describe being nervous about meeting/interacting with each other's families as boyfriend and girlfriend. Who do you think is more nervous Edward or Bella and why?
Bella. definitely. i mean, she's in a house with vampires and even though she didnt want Edward to know, you could tell she was still a little nervous.
