1) What were your first impressions of this section?
There is obviously going to be some action!

2) What did you think brought Bella to this place? Where, exactly, did you think they were?
Somewhere with a big clock.. outdoors because of the sunlight. I'm not sure. It mentions Alice but no Edward :(

3) Whom did you assume the "something bloodthirsty" waiting "in the wings" referred to?
A vampire.. but whom is the question.

4) Did you know right away that she was trying to save Edward?
There's no way to know.. something more important than her life would imply Edward.. if she didn't save it she didn't care about her life anymore.. it HAS to be Edward lol

5) Be honest, did you think Bella would fall?
It's so dramatic right away.. Did I think while reading it "Bella is going to fall", no. Was I surprised she did fall,.. NO lol

1) What were your first impressions of this section?

That we were on the precipe of something bad about to happen.


2) What did you think brought Bella to this place? Where, exactly, did you think they were?

Honestly, I had no idea. I was more curious as to who was threatening their lives.

3) Whom did you assume the "something bloodthirsty" waiting "in the wings" referred to?

A vampire but who?

4) Did you know right away that she was trying to save Edward?

No, but I knew he would be involved in some aspect. The two are inseparable.

5) Be honest, did you think Bella would fall?

I'm assuming you mean "fail." As bad luck prone as she is, Bella wouldn't fail at this, no way.

Off course, I was waiting for it to happen.

Oops, forgot to answer the preface questions. XD

1) What were your first impressions of this section?

It was pretty typical... Similar to Twilight's preface.

2) What did you think brought Bella to this place? Where, exactly, did you think they were?

I knew what part this was referring to. ^^;;;

3) Whom did you assume the "something bloodthirsty" waiting "in the wings" referred to?

The Volturi... LOL.

4) Did you know right away that she was trying to save Edward?

Yes.

5) Be honest, did you think Bella would fall?

I don't remember that... I knew things would be okay, though.

1) What were your first impressions of this section?
I thought something horrible had happened and that Bella or someone she loved was in great danger.

2) What did you think brought Bella to this place? Where, exactly, did you think they were?
I had no idea. I was wondering where Bella was and what was going on.

3) Whom did you assume the "something bloodthirsty" waiting "in the wings" referred to?
Vampires. Possibly Victoria.

4) Did you know right away that she was trying to save Edward?
No I did not. It was not till I read the part where Alice and Bella flew to Volterra to save Edward that this was what was going on.

5) Be honest, did you think Bella would fall?
Of course! This IS Bella!

1) What were your first impressions of this section?
That it was very intense, very fast paced, and that the stakes were higher than in the first book.

2) What did you think brought Bella to this place? Where, exactly, did you think they were?
I had no idea. I usually don't guess on the prefaces for Twilight books.

3) Whom did you assume the "something bloodthirsty" waiting "in the wings" referred to?
I figured it was some sort of thread from a bad vampire.

4) Did you know right away that she was trying to save Edward?
Yes.

5) Be honest, did you think Bella would fall?
I did. But I figured that something would happen and she would be able to succeed.

That something serious is going down.

Some deadly vampires.

The reference to Alice and something infinitely precious gave it away.

Hm, I don't think it occurred to me.

Always wanted to respond to each of these chapters, but once I start reading the books, I get so lost and consumed by them that I forget to. After several years of not reading and picking up Twilight and re-reading it in honor of the BD 2 I still forgot. :) . Now that I am finished with Twilight and reading NM I won't make that same mistake.

1) What were your first impressions of this section?

I had not a clue what the preface was about but I knew it would tie in somewhere in the book.

2) What did you think brought Bella to this place? Where, exactly, did you think they were?

I thought maybe Big Ben clock tower. I didn't know who Bella was saving.

3) Whom did you assume the "something bloodthirsty" waiting "in the wings" referred to?
I thought maybe some bad vampire (new character might surface the book)

4) Did you know right away that she was trying to save Edward?
No I didn't. I didn't cheat while reading the books. I wanted to be surprised for what SM had in store for her readers

5) Be honest, did you think Bella would fall? No cause I still was trying to understand the preface.
