1. What were your impressions of the house that the Cullens live in?
That it was a cool house and the only place where they could be themselves.

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.
That they are a very lovely couple and great parents.

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?
No, I didn't think that was going to be addressed later in the book.

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?
I think they're in the same level, Edward for bringing a human to his vampire family with the risk of she ending up dead and Bella for having to pretend for Edward's reaction, like for example, never eating.

In my mind, I kind of visioned the Cullen house sort of like the white house, but grander. The interior should be modern, but the dinner room, Carlisles office should be kind of medieval. I thought the descriptions provided a good enough image, but the films version was kinda poo in comparison.

My first impressions of Carlisle and Esme is that they are really nice, caring, down to earth people. Of course, in the film, it made Carlisle look a bit mean to be honest.

I think that they would both be equally nervous. Bella, because she was scared the family won't approve of her and Edward, because he was scared the family will try to drink her.

Chapter 15 ~ The Cullens
by Alphie on Sun Aug 17, 2008 4:05 pm

1. What were your impressions of the house that the Cullens live in?
That it was a wide open house with clear glass where the sunlight flowed in warmly and welcoming. That the whole inside was white and sleek and it was a place where they didn't have to hide.

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.
I thought Carlisle was a very welcoming and the most outgoing to humans out of all the family. And that Esme was very loving and caring.

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 instantly thought, NO! Edward hold her tight!

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 because she assumes the whole family doesn't like her.

1. What were your impressions of the house that the Cullens live in?

1. What were your impressions of the house that the Cullens live in?

It wasn't what I expected. You know, I was thinking that it would be dark and mysterious. But I liked the openness of it all. It was what the Cullen's house should look like even if I didn't think of it.

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 was a fatherly figure and the wise man of the family. Esme was just the mother her took care of everyone and made sure things never got out of hand.

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 never expected that the other vampires would be so involved, When I first heard about them, I just sort of brushed it off as just something to be put in.

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?

I think they both have good reason's to be nervous. Edward is nervous because, though most of his family is welcoming, Rosalie already has a dislike of her and Jasper still has little control. (this is best described in the movie) And Bella has her cop father to deal with. She is his only daughter. Nuff said. (also descibed well in the movie)

I loved this part in Twilight! Can't believe that they changed it in the movie! Very angry. :evil:

1. What were your impressions of the house that the Cullens live in?
SM/Bella made it sound like a very interesting, beautiful house but I have a hard time imagining the exterior (I still see the wolves as giant gorillas with wolf heads!) . . . It was not how I pictured it in the movie, that's for sure.

2. This is the first time Bella meets the Cullens (other than Carlisle) and gets to form 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.
They both seemed, as Edward says, "happy to see me [Edward] happy." They're both very tentative - they want everything to work out well for thier 'son.'

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 didn't know that it would be such a big part of the novel but sensed a little foreshadowing.

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. She had to meet not only Edward's entire family but Edward's entire vampire family. Enough said. However, Edward had reason to be nervous, too. He only had to meet Charlie but Charlie is the one person in Bella's family life and what he says goes. What if Charlie hated him? Edward's entire world would be crushed.

1. What were your impressions of the house that the Cullens live in?
I thought that it went along with what I pictured earlier in the book before we ever learned about their home. It also goes along with what Edward says about how this is the one place that they do not have to hide.

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.
I loved them both from the very beginning. You could tell that they were both so loving and inviting.

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?
Well I assumed that it would turn into something since a book needs some kind of conflict.

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, she has less of a self concept.

1. What were your impressions of the house that the Cullens live in?
An old Victoria mansion. My dream house. :)

I mean, Carlisle is of course amazing. A vampire who tries to save humans? If anyone were to be "saved", Carlisle deserves it. And then there is Esme. She is so motherly, it surprised me. I loved her already.

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?
No, not at all.

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?
Edward for Bella's safety. A house full of vampires and a tasty humans isn't the best or safest combo. But Bella because it's just weird between Charlie and her.
