1) What were your first impressions of this section? Action! Yes!! My heart was pounding because of Bella's urgent running.

2) What did you think brought Bella to this place? Where, exactly, did you think they were? I had no idea where they were.

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

4) Did you know right away that she was trying to save Edward? Yes. Clues- Edward was always precious to her; Alice was trapped by the sunlight; if she failed, she forfeited her desire to live (without Edward).

5) Be honest, did you think Bella would fall? hahaha... I thought she would, but sincerely hoped she wouldn't because I understood how urgent the time was with the sun being in the center of the sky!

What were your first impressions of this section?
i was like, what did Bella do this time

2) What did you think brought Bella to this place? Where, exactly, did you think they were?
i had no idea.

3) Whom did you assume the "something bloodthirsty" waiting "in the wings" referred to?
Vampires of course. :) no idea what the 'wings' thing meant.

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

pretty much. it said that 'for in failing at this, i forfeited any desire to live' and Edward being in trouble was the only reason i could see that would make Bella want to die.

5) Be honest, did you think Bella would fall?
hahaha... ummm yes. i did hope she wouldn't though.

1) What were your first impressions of this section?

I didn't pay too much attention to it. I knew that I would have no idea what any of it meant until I got to the end of the book.

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

I had no idea. I didn't try to make any assumptions at all.

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

A vampire.

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

Nope. Again, I didn't try to make any sense of the preface.

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

It did not cross my mind at all, but it probably should have.

1) What were your first impressions of this section?
I had an inkling starting this book that Edward and the Cullens were going to leave and I wasn't sure if they were going to come back, so the first thing that ocurred to me in reading the preface was , "Oh good, Alice is in here."

2) What did you think brought Bella to this place? Where, exactly, did you think they were?
I knew it had something to do with Edward but I wasn't really sure what, I thought maybe she was brought there by someone else. I gathered they might be in Europe somewhere, though I wasn't sure where. I also thought they could have been in London.

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

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

5) Be honest, did you think Bella would fall?
I figured she would.

1) What were your first impressions of this section?
I thought it was very exciting and I really wanted to find out where they were.
2) What did you think brought Bella to this place? Where, exactly, did you think they were?
I wasn't very sure but I knew the lack of Edward had something to do with why she was there. And I thought that maybe she was in some Ancient vampire place.
3) Whom did you assume the "something bloodthirsty" waiting "in the wings" referred to?
I thought that the bloodthirsty thing was referring to bad vampires and I thought that Bella was running through a crowd of some supernatural thing but not vampires.
4) Did you know right away that she was trying to save Edward?
I kind of had a hint that she wanted to save him but it was no clear.
5) Be honest, did you think Bella would fall?
I actually didn't even consider that becuase she seemed to determined to save whatever it was (Edward) to fall.

1) What were your first impressions of this section?
I thought that when the climax came, it was going to be intense. Running out of time, but you have to save someone in that limited amount of time that's clearly impossible! I had no idea what had happened though, all i knew that it was something bad. That's also a reason why I never believed Edward was "gone" for one minute, who else's life would she describe as that?

2) What did you think brought Bella to this place? Where, exactly, did you think they were?
No idea where she was. Just that she was racing to a clock tower to save Edward...

3) Whom did you assume the "something bloodthirsty" waiting "in the wings" referred to?
There was a vampire (something bloodthirsty), waiting just around the corner, where I can't see, ready to pop out at any moment (in the wings).

4) Did you know right away that she was trying to save Edward?
HAHAHA! "I didn't care about my own life anymore, I was trying to save something infinately more precious." ? She also mentioned something about how she wouldn't even want to live anymore anyways if she didn't succeed; that's like a dead give-away right there.

5) Be honest, did you think Bella would fall?
I honestly didn't know...

Bella got herself into trouble again? No way!

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

A vampire.

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

No, not at all.

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

Of course, she's always falling. Or slicing her head open.

1) What were your first impressions of this section?

actually first reaction was "Who has her mom this time?" yeah I know LOL

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

Trying to save someone she loved, and I had no idea where they were, somewhere with a big clock.

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

Honestly I had no idea

No, I was thinking it was one of her parents or maybe a chance it was Edward

1) What were your first impressions of this section?
I was confused. I was also a little...unsettled because i dont like things coming between Bella and Edward, and the preface sure indicated to some crazy, unpleasnant scenarios taking place.

2) What did you think brought Bella to this place? Where, exactly, did you think they were?
Um I had no clue where she was or who brought her there. But I knew we weren't in Forks anymore.

3) Whom did you assume the "something bloodthirsty" waiting "in the wings" referred to?
No idea. Honestly, at this point into the book, there really was no way to even have have a clue as to who it was. It couldve been anyone. But it scared me because i dont like my favorite characters ever dying, or being endangered =[

4) Did you know right away that she was trying to save Edward?
No idea. I didnt really stop to think about it. I was just rushing to get to the first chapter =]

5) Be honest, did you think Bella would fall?
I didnt really consider it or think about it.

1) What were your first impressions of this section?
It was a little confusing and cloudy. Like maybe she was dreaming.

2) What did you think brought Bella to this place? Where, exactly, did you think they were?
Something sub-concious brought her to where they were - probably because I thought it was a dream. I didn't think they were in an actual place.

3) Whom did you assume the "something bloodthirsty" waiting "in the wings" referred to?
A new coven of vampires.

4) Did you know right away that she was trying to save Edward?
I actually thought that it had more to do with Alice. That somehow Bella had to try to save her.

5) Be honest, did you think Bella would fall?
I am suprised, but no. I never even thought of it.
