1. Where did you think Edward had gone off to at the start of the chapter and why did you think he had vanished?

I thought he was just at home pretending to be sick so he could avoid Bella. I didn't really come up with an explanation for why he was avoiding her though.

2. We learn a few things about Bella's parents in this chapter. Charlie can't cook - Renee is rather needy and so on. What does this tell us about Bella as an individual?

It tells us that Bella is already an adult and able to fully take care of herself. It seemed to me that she lived with Renee and then Charlie for their sake, not for hers. Her parents did not take of her, she took care of them.

3. What was your reaction to the polite way Edward treated Bella when he returned? Did you think he was putting on a show? How did it change your thoughts about his initial reaction to her?

I did think he was putting on a show and that maybe he wanted something from her. I didn't care though, because I felt like he was dazzling me.

4. What was your first explanation for the change in Edward's eye color?

I didn't really think very much of his change in eye color. I knew it would be explained eventually.

1. Where did you think Edward had gone off to at the start of the chapter and why did you think he had vanished?
I personally had NO idea where he went or why he went.

2. We learn a few things about Bella's parents in this chapter. Charlie can't cook - Renee is rather needy and so on. What does this tell us about Bella as an individual?
She is very responsible and more adult then she appears to be.

3. What was your reaction to the polite way Edward treated Bella when he returned? Did you think he was putting on a show? How did it change your thoughts about his initial reaction to her?
I was like "multiple reality disorder much?" but then I was like SWOON your voice is shmexy =] I thought he was putting on a show he has put on before (the human show) I saw more of the sweet Edward my sister described to me.

4. What was your first explanation for the change in Edward's eye color?
I thought Bella was crazy and then I subconsciously figured out the hunting thing I think.

1. Where did you think Edward had gone off to at the start of the chapter and why did you think he had vanished?
I thought it had something to do with being a vampire, like it was his time to hunt or something.

2. We learn a few things about Bella's parents in this chapter. Charlie can't cook - Renee is rather needy and so on. What does this tell us about Bella as an individual?
She's exactly that, very individual. She supports her mom rather than the other way around. And she cooks for her dad because he's inept in that area.

3. What was your reaction to the polite way Edward treated Bella when he returned? Did you think he was putting on a show? How did it change your thoughts about his initial reaction to her?
I thought he really did want to talk to her the last time, he just couldn't for some reason. I knew her wanted to be her friend, I just knew.

4. What was your first explanation for the change in Edward's eye color?
I honestly had no clue, I was thinking exactly what Bella was giving me.

Ok, so I went and re-read the whole series again! But I still wanted to finish this, so here we go!

1. Where did you think Edward had gone off to at the start of the chapter and why did you think he had vanished?
-I figured he'd gone somewhere to get away from her, but no destination in mind. I knew it was because of Bella, but thought maybe she smelled bad somehow.

2. We learn a few things about Bella's parents in this chapter. Charlie can't cook - Renee is rather needy and so on. What does this tell us about Bella as an individual? That she probably had taken care of herself and them a lot, rather then the other way around. She seemed very shy too.

3. What was your reaction to the polite way Edward treated Bella when he returned? Did you think he was putting on a show? How did it change your thoughts about his initial reaction to her? I was totally confused. First he seemed to hate her or be disturbed by her, then he comes home and is so 180! I thought maybe he'd had time to think about her and decided to find out something.

4. What was your first explanation for the change in Edward's eye color? Not a clue...the time of the month?!

1. Where did you think Edward had gone off to at the start of the chapter and why did you think he had vanished?
I belived he was still attempting to change his schedule and staying away to avoid a scene

2. We learn a few things about Bella's parents in this chapter. Charlie can't cook - Renee is rather needy and so on. What does this tell us about Bella as an individual?
It tells us she had to grow up quickly at a very young age, so she is experianced beyond her years.

3. What was your reaction to the polite way Edward treated Bella when he returned? Did you think he was putting on a show? How did it change your thoughts about his initial reaction to her?
I thought it was a sign that he was proving he had either discovered a way around his problem, or learned to control himself

4. What was your first explanation for the change in Edward's eye color?
I thought it was mood related

1. Where did you think Edward had gone off to at the start of the chapter and why did you think he had vanished?
I wasn't quite sure were he had gone but I knew he was somewhere away from Bella. And I was sad cause I like Edward already in chapter two he was my favorite.

2. We learn a few things about Bella's parents in this chapter. Charlie can't cook - Renee is rather needy and so on. What does this tell us about Bella as an individual?
She's young but old at the same time, she's had to be more like a grown up with her parent than a teen.

3. What was your reaction to the polite way Edward treated Bella when he returned? Did you think he was putting on a show? How did it change your thoughts about his initial reaction to her?
I was like what is going on just like two weeks ago you were being real mean. Yeah I thought it was a show. It made me like him more cause he was nice.

4. What was your first explanation for the change in Edward's eye color?
Again I knew this was a vampire book so i assumed it was something to do with it

1. Where did you think Edward had gone off to at the start of the chapter and why did you think he had vanished?
Well, i knew that Bella had obviously caused him some type of "pain", so i figured that he was gathering his thoughts and picking himself up a little bit.

2. We learn a few things about Bella's parents in this chapter. Charlie can't cook - Renee is rather needy and so on. What does this tell us about Bella as an individual?
I think that because her parents are lacking in certain things, Bella was raised in a sense where she has the traits that they dont. (bella can cook, and she isn't very needy).

3. What was your reaction to the polite way Edward treated Bella when he returned? Did you think he was putting on a show? How did it change your thoughts about his initial reaction to her?
I thought he was just being a hormonal guy, one day he is a jerk and the next he is a charming gentlemen. I didn't think he was putting on a show.

4. What was your first explanation for the change in Edward's eye color?
I know that some people do have changing eye colors, like mine; they go from blue to green to blue again. I just figured his eyes did that, however ive never seen a jet black eye color...that was a little strange.

1. Where did you think Edward had gone off to at the start of the chapter and why did you think he had vanished?

Honestly, I didn't give it too much thought. I knew he wouldn't be at home in Forks, but I didn't really consider specifics.

2. We learn a few things about Bella's parents in this chapter. Charlie can't cook - Renee is rather needy and so on. What does this tell us about Bella as an individual?

She wants to please those around her to an almost obsessive point. She wants to help people so much that she's willing to suffer for it. She puts aside her own needs in order to see to the needs of her family members and her peers.

3. What was your reaction to the polite way Edward treated Bella when he returned? Did you think he was putting on a show? How did it change your thoughts about his initial reaction to her?

I thought maybe he was crazy... not really, but along those lines. Maybe going through something like vampire PMS. I assumed he was so rude because he wanted to eat Bella so when he returned and was nice, I thought he wasn't hungry/didn't want to eat Bella anymore.

4. What was your first explanation for the change in Edward's eye color?

Since the back of the book said that, "Edward was a vampire," I assumed that his eye colour was an attribute of being a vampire. I thought maybe the change in his eye colour was related to emotional state. I thought that maybe his eyes were dark because he was angry.

1. Where did you think Edward had gone off to at the start of the chapter and why did you think he had vanished?
I wasn't scared that he wasn't returning, but I was a little perplexed by the fact that he wasn't there looking like he was going to eat her. I thought maybe he was on the run, trying to avoid her.

2. We learn a few things about Bella's parents in this chapter. Charlie can't cook - Renee is rather needy and so on. What does this tell us about Bella as an individual?
That Bella is constantly going to be looking for someone to save. She seems to have an inherent desire to help people. It also told me that she'd be exceptionally vulnerable to someone doing things for her just because she's so not used to it.

3. What was your reaction to the polite way Edward treated Bella when he returned? Did you think he was putting on a show? How did it change your thoughts about his initial reaction to her?
At first I thought it was kind of a ploy, kind of him trying to push her further away by making her less curious about him. Let me explain, if he's nice to her just like everyone else, then maybe there's nothing to be intrigued with so he fades into the background. Maybe it was just the fact that he couldn't be away from her.

4. What was your first explanation for the change in Edward's eye color?
I thought it had something to do with feeding.

1. I thought he transferred school(this would be impossible in Forks) or decided to ditch class. I thought he was mad at Bella for staring at him awkwardly.

2. Bella must be the independent one in the family. The shoulder to cry on.

3. Weird. Humans don't have charcoal black eyes. I thought he was some emo boy who wears black contacts.
