1) Alice told Jasper she would get out, and then told Bella she hated lying to him. Did this put you on edge?
A little bit, yeah. But I mean, come on, the heroines of the story cannot end tragically on the second of 4 books. So I kinda knew they would pull it off
2) We learn a great deal about the Volturi in this chapter. What were your first impressions of the Volturi?
Scary mofos! I always pictured them like the evil vampire clan from Paris in Interview with The Vampire. Those guys are not fooling around!
3) Bella found it comforting to know that if they were too late she would have an "easy way out." Did this frighten you, considering the Romeo and Juliet illusions?
It didn't frighten me, it just bothered me a little that Bella is so okay with dying throughout Twilight and New Moon. Like it's a walk in the park. The girl has some weird suicidal tendencies at times... I dunno.
4) Alice promises to change Bella. Did this make you optimistic for the future? How did you think that Edward would react to that?
****** yes! But Edward was surely enough, not going to be very pleased with Alice's promise.
5)Edward's plans were set, the steps for exposure in motion. Were you afraid for his life?
Yup, I was a little tense, that Bella would be a few seconds too late, and then the Volturi would come for him. I could see things getting very ugly for both of them. I couldn't stop reading the book until the end from the moment Alice told Bella he was going to Italy.
