1. There are so many humorous quotes from this chapter. The "zingers" keep coming. Which is your favorite from chapter nine and why?
"How long have you been seventeen?" "A while".
I found this the first 'real' hint where Edward admitted to be 'not human'.
(I read the books in Dutch, so to the rest of you, the quote might seem a bit off
)2. Do you think Bella is starting to regret that she flirted with Jacob in order to get information from him?
No, I think she is glad she did, because she hears the truth now.3. Much of the chapter centers around the phrase, "it doesn't matter". Why exactly doesn't it matter to Bella?
Because she is already in love with Edward. And not just in love, but a very much deeper feeling even.4. Bella is on the verge of tears once and then finally does cry a second time. What emotion do you think is largely responsible for her tears given that we know she only usually cries when she is angry.
She feels that he is trying to keep distance and she doesn't want that.5. The chapter ends with the famous "three things" quote. What exactly do you think was the point where Bella fell "unconditionally and irrevocably in love" with Edward?
From the first moment she saw him. She was obsessed from the start, so she must have been (knowing or not knowing) in love with him already.
