1. We learn that Alice's visions change depending on the decisions of the person she is trying to observe. Did this surprise you at all or was this how you always thought her visions worked? And what does this say about the power of our own choices?
It was an interesting take on seeing the future. It shows that our future isn't set in stone, that we have the power to change who we are, what we do...It's a good message to the readers at any rate! 2. How long to you think it took Alice and Jasper to figure out where Bella had gone? And how do you imagine Edward took the news?
This is the part that gets me. Because I think that Alice knew in the hotel room in that final vision she had when she said Bella's name. I think she knew then. But what I can't figure out is why she didn't say anything. I have lots of theories in my head as to why not, but I'm just not sure. I imagine Edward was angry, frantic,heartbroken, lost, without Bella there at the airport. I think we would also get to understand Alice's final vision as well (through Edward)...that's why I'm still holding out for Midnight Sun!3. We learned that Alice was once a resident in a mental institution. What does this say about Alice's human family? Do you think they were justified because of the times they lived in?
I don't know. 4. James is somewhat of a performance artist, using the mirrors to create a very effective death for Bella. What does this say about his character or his life when he was a human?
He was probably a sadist.....
