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 thought that he had transferred to a different school or something. lol

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?
It tells us that she is very independant and put's other's feelings/needs before her own.

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?
It didn't change my thought about him at all, I still loved his character. When he was being super nice I just figured that he grew a better resistance or something.

4. What was your first explanation for the change in Edward's eye color?
I just figured it was because he was a vampire....anything was possible. loll

I assumed that he left to clear his head. I didnt understand wht he left.

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?
That she is a caregiver and puts herself 2nd to everyone.

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?

Thirst.

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, i didn't know anything about edward at the time except that he was a vampire. i think he just had to get away, he seemed tense, which is a total understatement now, lol.

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?
that she is more of an adult really. she parents them because both of them need her in some way or another.

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?
i didn't think he was putting on a show, i thought it was just all very odd. but the back of the book said he was a vampire, so i attributed his changing moods to that.

4. What was your first explanation for the change in Edward's eye color?
something vampire-y. haha.

1. Where did you think Edward had gone off to at the start of the chapter and why did you think he had vanished?
didnt know,but i was sitting on the edge of my seat waiting to find out

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?
bella is a lonely individual and tired...she just needs a break
even though she doesnt say it...she is her mothers parent
i think she actually does get that much-needed break once she falls into the routine with her dad

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?
i was like "its about time"
it obviously had nothing to do with her, that eased my mind from my initial thoughts

4. What was your first explanation for the change in Edward's eye color?
i figured it had something to do with thirst

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 wasn't entirely sure, but I thought it must be something to do with the altercation he had with Bella the previous day. I mean the guy ran from her, you can't get much more obvious than that. No wonder the poor girl cried as she drove home, I think I would have done the same thing!

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?

She's a strong independent girl who really knows what the worlds about. It's no wonder she's old for her age, mature for her years. I'm sue being the adult with her mother forced her to mature earlier than she would have. I

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?

I honestly thought he was bipolar LOL Just kidding, I thought he felt remorse about what happened which is completely natural. Wouldn't anyone feel bad about treating someone with such discord?

4. What was your first explanation for the change in Edward's eye color?
Really, I didn't have any idea . . . he was a vampire, I knew the tenor of the books so it was what was screaming at me. Unfortunately, the tag line on the back of the book gave that away, still though I adored the mystery of it all and the development of them as people, learning to know one another.

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 thought it was because he just took an instant dislike to her. Poor thing she was so upset...

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?

It shows that she was raised from an early age to be completely independent. I can relate to her here. I was raised the same (almost).

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?

I thought he was just trying to be nice at first because of the way he acted in the beginning. I thought he really meant it, but not in the way that it turned out.

4. What was your first explanation for the change in Edward's eye color?

lol... I thought he had gotten contacts. (I never read the back of the book, and no one ever told me what the book was about!)

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 figured he went hunting.
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?
She is very dependent, and unselfish.
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?
I thought he had came to his senses. I thought he liked her.
4. What was your first explanation for the change in Edward's eye color?
Contacts. Lol. I didn't know anything else.

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 figured he was just holed up in his house hiding. I assumed it had something to do with how much he seemed to hate Bella.

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?
It tells us how responsible she is, and how she has always cared for rather than been cared for.

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?
I figured he had just gotten over whatever bad mood he was in when he last saw her. It didn't really change anything for me, because I knew he was a vampire...I did read the back and hear summaries from friends.

4. What was your first explanation for the change in Edward's eye color?
Actually, I'm ashamed to admit I didn't really notice it untill Bella said/thought about it, after which I figured it was something vampire-y.
I miss a lot the first time I read something. I get too eager to know what happens next that I miss what happens then.

1. Where did you think Edward had gone off to at the start of the chapter and why did you think he had vanished?

Mmm, I didn't know where to think, I actually thought he was just hiding out at his house. Well he obviously vanished because of bella, i just didn't know why.

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?

She is quite selfless, despite everything.

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?

I was shocked. I was like how many mood swings does this guy have in a day. Yes I sort of did. I ddn't know what to think i was still surprised.

4. What was your first explanation for the change in Edward's eye color?

The mood thing, i have always said that the eyes are the windows to our souls. He's sense is just more literal.
