1) Alice told Jasper she would get out, and then told Bella she hated lying to him. Did this put you on edge? Gosh, yes. Danger seemed inevitable, and death, well, I certainly hoped it wouldn't come to that... I knew there were 2 more books, so I figured everything would be okay. I still got caught up in the drama of the situation, though.
2) We learn a great deal about the Volturi in this chapter. What were your first impressions of the Volturi? Good lord! I hated them instantly! They sounded like tyrants.
3) Bella found it comforting to know that if they were too late she would have an "easy way out." Did this frighten you, considering the Romeo and Juliet illusions? Yes, I had been thinking about that the entire book.
4) Alice promises to change Bella. Did this make you optimistic for the future? How did you think that Edward would react to that? Finally! It did make me optimistic, but it wouldn't do much for the romance part of the story. I'd been thinking that it would be sooooo romantic if Edward were the one who changed Bella. If Alice did it, ahhh, Edward would be furious!!
5)Edward's plans were set, the steps for exposure in motion. Were you afraid for his life? Oh my God, yes!!!
