1) What were your first impressions of this section?
Confusion. I didn't really have a clue.

2) What did you think brought Bella to this place? Where, exactly, did you think they were?
I was too confused to have theories. I just assumed the confusion would end after I read the rest of the book so I tried to not think too much about this part.

3) Whom did you assume the "something bloodthirsty" waiting "in the wings" referred to?
Another vampire, Victoria maybe, but I didn't think too much of it at first.

4) Did you know right away that she was trying to save Edward?
Nope, I never imagined Edward being in need of a saviour.

5) Be honest, did you think Bella would fall?
I guess ...

1) What were your first impressions of this section?
It sounded like Bella and Alice were trying to save someone, I wasn't sure exactly who.

2) What did you think brought Bella to this place? Where, exactly, did you think they were?
I wasn't sure exactly where they were, but only someone Bella loved would bring her into such danger.

3) Whom did you assume the "something bloodthirsty" waiting "in the wings" referred to?
I figured it was some kind of vampire, not the vegetarian kind.

4) Did you know right away that she was trying to save Edward?
Not exactly. Edward is the one Bella loves most, so it would stand to reason, but could have been any of her family members.

5) Be honest, did you think Bella would fall?
Uh, yeah, I kind of thought she might. But I was hoping that wouldn't be the case. :D

1) What were your first impressions of this section?
This definetly caught my attention. After reading Twilight I was pretty sure this would be the climax of the story. It made me want to keep reading.

2) What did you think brought Bella to this place? Where, exactly, did you think they were?
I had no idea how she got there, but for some reason I thought maybe she was at an airport or something.

3) Whom did you assume the "something bloodthirsty" waiting "in the wings" referred to?
I figured there were vampires everywhere.

4) Did you know right away that she was trying to save Edward?
I figured she was probably trying to save him. Who else would Bella risk her life for?

5) Be honest, did you think Bella would fall?
I a sneaking suspicion that she might fall lol.

1) What were your first impressions of this section?
Confusion, mostly. But I'm usually kind of thinking 'Whatever, I'll have to find out later, right??'
2) What did you think brought Bella to this place? Where, exactly, did you think they were?
I don't remember...it was over a year ago I first read it, and I was probably just too excited to be reading, but the sunlight and running and everything really got me confused.
3) Whom did you assume the "something bloodthirsty" waiting "in the wings" referred to?
Probably some evil bad nonvegetarian vampires like Victoria, James, etc.
4) Did you know right away that she was trying to save Edward?
..I don't remember..what would SHE need to save HIM from, instead of the other way around?? So, I don't think we really could have known until we actually read the book.
5) Be honest, did you think Bella would fall?
Not really, if it was that dramatic and important, a live or die moment, I really wasn't thinking of her tripping.

1) What were your first impressions of this section?
I really got me excited to continue reading.

2) What did you think brought Bella to this place? Where, exactly, did you think they were?
I had no idea, just that something terrible must have happened.

3) Whom did you assume the "something bloodthirsty" waiting "in the wings" referred to?

Some other vampires.

4) Did you know right away that she was trying to save Edward?

What confused me was that I did not think that Edward would ever be in need of saving. But I thought like some others have said also; that she did say that she was trying to save something more important than her own life, and that if she failed, she wouldn't care what happened anymore. And that had to be Edward.

5) Be honest, did you think Bella would fall?
No, because this seemed to be so important and Bella was so focused at this point.

1) What were your first impressions of this section?
Well, as Bella was actually the one to save and not to be saved, I was very surprised. But then I went to the next page and thought that I will know what happened later, anyway. The prefaces are very fun, because when you are at the point to discover what it all means, you draw lines and understand everything.

2) What did you think brought Bella to this place? Where, exactly, did you think they were?
I had no idea where they were.

3) Whom did you assume the "something bloodthirsty" waiting "in the wings" referred to?
A vampire, of course. And that he/she/they was/were hidden but that Bella knew he/she/they was/were there.

4) Did you know right away that she was trying to save Edward?
My guess was Renee, but this time for good. Or maybe Charlie. But I was nowhere near Edward.

5) Be honest, did you think Bella would fall?
I didn't think so at all. I knew this was far too important for her to trip, even with her being extremely clumsy.

1) What were your first impressions of this section?

I had no real idea what was going on, actually. This was the first Twilight Saga book I read so I didn't know SM likes to use foreshadowing in the Preface.

2) What did you think brought Bella to this place? Where, exactly, did you think they were?

No clue and... no idea!

3) Whom did you assume the "something bloodthirsty" waiting "in the wings" referred to?

Um, well I knew the book was about vampires so... a vampire!

4) Did you know right away that she was trying to save Edward?

Nope!

5) Be honest, did you think Bella would fall?

Hmm... well, again, I didn't know Bella's character that well when I first read it so I was neutral. But knowing what I know now about Bella's clumsiness, I can see how people would think she did!!

1) What were your first impressions of this section? I guessed Bella's was trying to save Edward from something.

2) What did you think brought Bella to this place? Where, exactly, did you think they were? I didn't give it much thought. I knew it was a clip from the book so I try not to put much thought into the preface

3) Whom did you assume the "something bloodthirsty" waiting "in the wings" referred to? Another vampire

4) Did you know right away that she was trying to save Edward? yes

5) Be honest, did you think Bella would fall? I hoped she wouldn't I kept saying don't fall over and over again.
