1. Would you have been as reluctant as Bella was to accept the gift of a new car, even one as extravagant as the Mercedes, from someone like Edward?
I would have been reluctant only because i cannot drive fast cars! The description of Bella barely having to push the accelerator to go at 60mph made me shudder. Plus, i'm not much of a car person, so even if Edward had given me an expensive car, i probably wouldn't even know what make it is! 2. Did you feel Charlie was justified in putting up the various posters of Jacob around town or should he have left that up to Billy? Remember, even as the police chief, Charlie doesn't have jurisdiction over the reservation.
Of course he was justified! Billy didn't tell him to stop, so he obviously didn't mind. I think a part of him was also desperate to hear any news of his son's whereabouts. Plus, Charlie's a cop, and he would just go with his instincts. He's not the kind of man who would just sit back and do nothing. 3. What were your thoughts about the way Charlie reacted to the engagement? About how Renee reacted? 4. Were you nervous for the wedding at the end of this chapter? Did you think Jacob would show up?
I was nervous for Bella. I found myself really hoping that Bella wouldn't end up tripping down the aisle and end up in the A&E! I wasn't sure whether Jacob would show, but i did expect to see the Volturi, or at least a representative of theirs, check in, to see how Bella was progressing.
