1. Edward was willing to let Bella have Jacob’s child to save her life. In your opinion was this a reasonable offer?
I don't think it was reasonable, but I don't think it was unreasonable. He was very, very worried about Bella and was desperate for a way to make her okay. He probably thought this was the best possible way for everyone. From Edward's point of view, however crazed, it is very reasonable. But from everyone else's it is a little less than sane.
2. What do you think it would have done to his relationship with Bella if she had accepted this offer? What other relationships would be affected?
I think almost every relationship throughout the book would have been affected and changed. I mean, first off, I think it would drastically change things for Edward and Bella. Edward may think that he would be able to stand it and go through with it, but in reality, I don't think he could. It would put them in serious strain, and maybe even ruin it for them... especially with Edward being able to read Jacob's mind. It would just be too hard on them. And if it ruined things between Edward and Bella, or even just changed a little, it would somewhat change her relationship with the rest of the cullens. And things would obviously be much different between Jacob and Bella, and with that change comes a whole bunch of different relationships with the rest of the wolves on the res and Billy, too.
3. What did you think of Bella's idea that she could be changed into a vampire right after the baby was born?
Of course it sounded like a good idea, but once you get thinking about it, it was flawed. A lot of things could go wrong. At this point, it was pretty obvious that this birth was going to be a lot different than a human birth... there could be a lot more pain and a lot more blood. I thought of a lot of worst-case-scenarios. In the end I figured, there maybe wouldn't be time or something like that... but they were probably going to have to try it any way... it was kind of their last hope.
4. How did you feel about Sam's change of mind and determination to kill the unborn baby?
To be quite honest, I was disgusted. It would be completely unjustified until they knew for sure that there was indeed a reason to attack. They wanted to attack with just a glimmer of a possibility that there might be a reason for a fight, not with any real evidence. That they would attack the Cullens so blindly was really dispicable. And that they would kill an innocent child who had done absolutely nothing wrong... the idea of that rubs me the wrong way, immortal maybe-dangerous child or no... so I was pretty upset with Sam at this point.
