1. We learn quite a bit about the physiology of vampires in this chapter as Edward tells Carlisle's story. Which the most surprising thing you discovered - that they didn't need to breathe, that Carlisle tried to starve himself, or that they are very difficult to kill?I was pretty surprised at how Carlisle tried to starve himself. I mean, he did an amazing transformation from that to being a "doctor" who can control his thirst around the hospital. =) My kind of doctor. lol
2. How did you feel about Edward's confession that he drank from humans for a short period of time? Were you surprised? Or were you more like Bella in thinking that it seemed reasonable? What do you think of his choice to kill only "bad" humans?Honestly, I think Edward's confession seemed reasonable too. I mean, when you mostly desire something, you go after it, right? It's hard to control yourself (in this case, human blood) and I thought it to be reasonable.
The bad human thing, I think that's about right. They're going to end up doing more bad so why not take care of them? Only it would be Edward Style. =)
3. We get our first peek into Edward's room, which isn't really a bed room since it has no bed. Given the interest most fans have in all things romantic where these vampires are concerned, how long do you think it will take Edward to actually get a bed...if he ever gets one at all? Snigger...you know I had to ask!LOL I won't answer now since I already know (I read all books) but at the beginning, I thought he would never get one since Edward was always in Bella's room.
4. Throughout the chapter, Edward is much MUCH more himself. He is very open with Bella and seems very comfortable around her. I understand that this is the day after their time in the meadow, but what do you think specifically changed between them that allows Edward to be so free all of a sudden?It's like a weight lifted off of him to have someone to share all these secrets. Carrying so much and to never tell anyone is pressure and, to actually have the chance to tell, it must have been like he was free. =) Poor Edward. .
