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.
