Like Just after Jacob has given Bella the dream catcher, Edward says to her " How come Jacob Black gets to give you presents and I dont? Do you see the inequality, because I do" or the "Jacob I love you" ??
Correct me if I'm wrong...I'm re-reading the books now and am just now in the part of New Moon
where Bella does the cliff dive. So far, I haven't even read across the part where Jacob gives Bella the dreamcatcher...Am I imagining this? Or did I read over it without paying attention?
I know that Edward asks her about the presents because of the bracelet that Jacob gives her, but yes, that's in Eclipse
. And several times already in New Moon
she realizes she's in love with her best friend but that it's a different love than she has for Edward. She will never love him that way but maybe how she loves him would be enough.
I think this is one of the flaws of working with different directors. You get things they want to add to their movie or things they don't deem necessary; but to get a true continuation of the story, you would have to go back to the beginning. Too many things left out of Twilight
. I understand though...stick closer to the books and the movie story line suffers. Alot about the books is internal and from Bella's perspective only...they did a great job with it, but they could have done so much more. Of course, that's just my opinion.
