1. Where did you think Edward had gone off to at the start of the chapter and why did you think he had vanished?
I had NO idea. Obviously I wasn't aware of the Denali clan up in Alaska. ;P I thought maybe he was at home brooding.2. We learn a few things about Bella's parents in this chapter. Charlie can't cook - Renee is rather needy and so on. What does this tell us about Bella as an individual?
I definitely understood better just how independent she had to be. Her mother acts almost like her little sister, and her father is just kind of clueless.
They're loveable, but their behavior forced Bella to grow up way too quickly.3. What was your reaction to the polite way Edward treated Bella when he returned? Did you think he was putting on a show? How did it change your thoughts about his initial reaction to her?WTH!?
That was essentially it. Lol. I was totally thinking that this guy needed to be on bi-polar meds, and I was slightly disappointed that he wasn't so jerky. Being nice was going to uncomplicate their relationship. Lol.4. What was your first explanation for the change in Edward's eye color?
Mmmm... I'm 'exceptionally unobservent', so I doubt I noticed it at all. However, if I did, I probably attributed it to his mood or something.
