1. How did you feel about Jacob's injury and Bella's reaction to it?
It seemed very true to her character. Bella cares for Jake, and when she worries that he will die, she goes under to protect herself from pain as well. Bella and Jacob share a deep bond andneither one of them, even Jacob, fully understand its extent. I was hyperventilating, scared for Jacob. I love that wolf boy and couldn't bear to let him go, rather like Bella.
2. Did you suspect that the Volturi’s late arrival to the fight was planned? Why?
Yes. They are a bit jealous and possessive of the Cullens, as Aro desires Alice and Edward and perhaps Bella by his side. They want the Cullens to be injured so that Aro can sweep down and claim his prizes, or take out the rival coven.
3. What did Jane mean when she told Edward “Quite a pity how things turned out, isn’t it?” P 577
She means that it's too bad the Volturi didn't show up earlier to help, when it would have been convenient for the Cullens. This confirms the suspicion that the Volturi want the Cullens to be incapacitated so Aro can secure his specially gifted servants.
4. Before you read Breaking Dawn, how did you think Bella would compare to Bree as a newborn? Did you think she would have better control over her bloodlust or that she would be as wild as Bree was in the clearing?
I thought she would be a bit like that, yes. But I expected her to be more Bella-like, as always, and surprise everyone. Also, she would be living for Edward and Jacob, so she would do her best to be different.
If you're not really here, I don't want to be either. I want to be next to you.
