1) This is the first mention we have of the huge black bear wandering around the forest of Forks. What was your first impression of this information? Did you think it would be as important as it turned out to be?
Not at all. I didn't give it any more thought.2) What did you think of Mike in this chapter and his behaviour toward Bella? Were you surprised that he wasn't trying to "make the most" of working alone with her?
I don't think he wanted to be with Bella like that at the time. I mean, she didn't sound like a lot of fun to be around during those days. 3) What did you think of Bella's motorcycle plan?
I thought it was a good idea.
After all, what's wrong with driving a motorcycle?4) When you first saw Jacob through Bella's eyes, what did you think? Did you like him? Did you think he would become as important to her as he did?
I liked him as Bella's friend. He wasn't Edward, but he was warm and sweet and he helped Bella through a hard time in her life. I couldn't help but liking him for that. 5) Were you surprised by Bella's complete reluctance to leave Forks or did you suspect it given Edward's minimally lingering presence? Why or why not?
Not really. Bella obviously didn't want to forget Edward and since she didn't have anything left of him, I can imagine that she thought it would feel as if he never existed in the first place if she went somewhere outside of Forks.6) This is the first time we see Billy without Edward around or the threat of Edward looming. Did your impression of him change at all from Twilight? Why or why not?
Yeah, my impression of him did change. I started to like him more. In Twilight I thought he was annoying but now he turned out to be okay.
