2) Did you approve of the way Charlie treated Edward as the first boyfriend Bella ever brought home?
3) Edward talks about his inner turmoil regarding constantly putting Bella into danger. Do you think he is to hard on himself?
No, I don't think he's too hard on himself. She is constantly in danger being around him. If he loses his self-control for even an instant, he could snap and kill her in an instant.
4) Edward finally says "I love you". Were you disappointed in how it came out almost off-handedly.
I was surprised that it was written that way, but in a way it was even more romantic. Mentioning it off-handedly like that made it seem like it was always there. No need for theatrics.
5) We learn more about Esme, was your impression of her changed after learning more about her?
It was interesting to learn that she tried to kill herself and that she did it because she lost her baby. I realized how much she longed to be a mother and that her love for the Cullen "children" is maternal and genuine. I would have loved to have learned even more about her. What are Esme's beliefs about souls and the afterlife? Was she ever upset with Carlisle for turning her into a vampire, if she thought she could be with her baby in the afterlife?
