1. There was so much talk when Quil imprinted on Claire about how strange that was. How do you think the scene with him helped better explain their relationship?
I think it explained more about the whole imprinting thing. Up until that scene, I thought imprinting was a way to find your soul mate and fall in love at first sight with them. Now I realize why they always say "It's not love at first sight", because in many cases, such as Quil's, it isn't love at first. It blossoms into love, but it isn't romantic love right from the beginning. This scene completely shows that Quil loves Claire like a little sister, and now I'm not as shocked about him imprinting on her.2. Did you agree with Quil that maybe Jacob should at least try to date someone? Did you agree with Jacob’s reasons for why he wouldn’t date?
Maybe, but Jacob had to go and be stubborn and decide that, even if she's obviously taken for life, he will still pursue her. Nice, Jacob, nice.
I don't know if I'm allowed to refer to a part in the book that is later on and hasn't been discussed yet, but I will anyway. For those who have finished BD (hopefully almost all of you out there!), I'm thinking of the part where Jacob goes for a drive and goes to the park.... that scene makes it pretty clear why he doesn't attempt to date anyone who isn't Bella.3. Do you think Jacob was right in saying that The Cullens broke the treaty by changing Bella even if it was what she wanted? Or did you totally side with Sam?
No. I was totally on Sam's side. Bella was fully educated as to what was going to happen to her, and she agreed to it anyway. Plus, like the first person who responded on this thread said, the intent of the treaty is for the Cullens not to bite a human with the intent of killing
them. The Cullens just want Bella to be a part of their family. One final thought: I don't think Jacob cared so much about the situation because he wanted to protect the treaty, I think it had something to do with the fact that he loved Bella and didn't want to let her go.4. How did you think Jacob would react when he found out what was the real cause behind Bella’s sickness?
Well, obviously I couldn't know for sure what his reaction would be, because I didn't see the chapter title, because, leave it to Jacob Black to not bother to put in a table of contents! Lol, I really wanted to point that out. After reading about what he wanted to do to the Cullens when he thought they killed her, I started laughing because he was so far off the mark. I wondered if he would still want to kill the Cullens anyways.
One last thing: I loved
Jacob's preface: Life sucks, and then you die. Yeah, I should be so lucky.
