1. Bella is surprised and touched that Charlie put snow chains on her truck because she isn't used to people taking care of her. Later on we know that Renee called Bella hysterical to have her come home yet Renee wasn't in Phoenix. Given all of this what were your impressions of Renee?
I think my impressions of Renee were exactly what Stephenie wanted reader's impressions to be. I felt like Renee was a little crazy, kind of all over the place emotionally, someone who doesn't always think things through.

2. The accident is the first great action scene in the book. Did you get all the details right in your head the first time, or did you realize you missed finer points when Bella thinks about the accident later?
I literally read the scene three times trying to figure out if I'd missed something. The line about his family looking at him with anger, but having no concern for his safety was absolutely telltale for me that something bigger was going on, even though i already knew about the vampire thing.

3. What did you think about Charlie's response to the accident?
Classic Dad!

4. This is the first time we meet Carlisle. What were your first impressions?
He sounds like he's winning the fight in trying to blend in despite being gorgeous. I liked the fact that he had very little reaction to Bella's tale of Edward's daring rescue.

5. Did Edward's cool and even sarcastic comments regarding the accident intrigue you or frighten you?
I kind of thought he was a little bit of a Vulgar Language Is Ugly at this point in the book, I was shouting "just tell her"

That she was usually dependant upon Bella. She is use to having her around the house. To help out..and talk to her about things that maybe she cant talk about to Phil.
2. The accident is the first great action scene in the book. Did you get all the details right in your head the first time, or did you realize you missed finer points when Bella thinks about the accident later?
Yeah. I pretty much got all of the details in my head. I was shocked that Edward, out of all people is the one who saved her.
3. What did you think about Charlie's response to the accident?
I thought it was pretty a pretty average parents response to anykind of accident.
4. This is the first time we meet Carlisle. What were your first impressions?
He seemed to be a very nice doctor.
5. Did Edward's cool and even sarcastic comments regarding the accident intrigue you or frighten you?
I wasn't frightened at all. =]
I ♥ Jacob Black.

Renee seems flighty and immature. I'm happy she's not a central character in this series. I would get tired of her really quickly.

2. The accident is the first great action scene in the book. Did you get all the details right in your head the first time, or did you realize you missed finer points when Bella thinks about the accident later?

I did have to read those passages a couple of times. In fact, I would like to read them again, but I lent the book to someone. I must have missed the finer points.

3. What did you think about Charlie's response to the accident?

Hmmm. I wish I had my book with me. I don't remember his reaction.

4. This is the first time we meet Carlisle. What were your first impressions?

Knowing that he is Edward's "father," I was interested in knowing more about him. He seemed calm, friendly, genuine. I did make the connection that a vampire was working as a doctor, in an emergency room, around all that human blood. I figured he must have fantastic self-control and that he obviously taught that control to Edward.

5. Did Edward's cool and even sarcastic comments regarding the accident intrigue you or frighten you?

I don't think Edward could frighten me! I wasn't even intrigued- of course he wanted Bella to keep quiet about it. No surprise there. His sarcasm could be toned down a bit, though.

I think Charlie and Renee love Bella very much :)

2. The accident is the first great action scene in the book. Did you get all the details right in your head the first time, or did you realize you missed finer points when Bella thinks about the accident later?
I saw it pretty vividly, when I saw the movie trailer that's about exactly how I saw it in my head so I was really excited that they were sticking to the book, [except the part where he jumps over Bella's truck..]

3. What did you think about Charlie's response to the accident?
It was how every parent should react.

4. This is the first time we meet Carlisle. What were your first impressions?
I didn't believe he was a vampire, I just thought Edward would be one because, come one, how many vampires could work at a hospital?!

5. Did Edward's cool and even sarcastic comments regarding the accident intrigue you or frighten you?

It pissed me off because he was being a liar lol

That it was Bella who looked after her mother and not the other way round. Renee seemed to me (and still does) very childlike.

2. The accident is the first great action scene in the book. Did you get all the details right in your head the first time, or did you realize you missed finer points when Bella thinks about the accident later?
I think I missed all the finer points :lol: That's always my problem with reading because I read very quickly. Another reason why I missed quite a lot the first time is that English is not my first language and I've never read Twilight in German, so there were also some words I didn't understand...

3. What did you think about Charlie's response to the accident?
Completely normal reactiont of a parent.

4. This is the first time we meet Carlisle. What were your first impressions?
I think I loved him from the first minute :) He seemed to be very nice and also a very good doctor.

5. Did Edward's cool and even sarcastic comments regarding the accident intrigue you or frighten you?
They amused me. I think I giggled throughout the whole hospital-part of that chapter. But it also intrigued me because I wanted to read all the answers and explanations. Now.

I figured Renee thought home was where she was, and not the physical structure. She was scared for her little girl, even though her daughter had been the one taking care of her for a few years.

2. The accident is the first great action scene in the book. Did you get all the details right in your head the first time, or did you realize you missed finer points when Bella thinks about the accident later?

I had totally missed the finer points, but I'm gonna have to reread that part because it seems like forever since I read it.

3. What did you think about Charlie's response to the accident?

He had to act as both police chief and father at the same time. It conflicted him, in my opinion.

4. This is the first time we meet Carlisle. What were your first impressions?

He seemed to be nice enough.

5. Did Edward's cool and even sarcastic comments regarding the accident intrigue you or frighten you?

Left me a little confused as to why he was acting that way.

She is irresponsible, air headed, but worried. She is trying hard to be the mother that Bella needs, but ends up being more of a sister type.

2. The accident is the first great action scene in the book. Did you get all the details right in your head the first time, or did you realize you missed finer points when Bella thinks about the accident later?
I realized that I missed the finer points. I'll admit: I had to read that part twice, because the first time I skipped through it so quickly from excitement. The second time, I read through it very slowly, making sure to catch every word.

3. What did you think about Charlie's response to the accident?
I thought he was trying to mask the real concern he had for her. He was very casual, but not in a very convincing way. I liked that he called Renee.

4. This is the first time we meet Carlisle. What were your first impressions?
I thought he was extremely smooth, and I instantly wanted to see more of him.

5. Did Edward's cool and even sarcastic comments regarding the accident intrigue you or frighten you?
Edward never frightened me. They worried me a little, because I thought they might ruin Bella's mental well being, but not scared. A little intrigued, but I already knew what was going on.

It just seemed to me that it was a good disicion that Bella left her mom. Not that Renee was a bad mother, she was just different. Still, I liked Renee, she just seemed a little... crazy haha

2. The accident is the first great action scene in the book. Did you get all the details right in your head the first time, or did you realize you missed finer points when Bella thinks about the accident later?
No way did I understand the whole thing at first. I actually remember reading it for the first time (I read it only a couple months after the book came out) and thinking "wait what just happened", and then i finally understood after I re-read it and realized what Bella had thought about after words.

3. What did you think about Charlie's response to the accident?
His responce was natural for him. He wasn't quite sure what to do, but he was still very very fatherly at that moment.

4. This is the first time we meet Carlisle. What were your first impressions?
to simply put it, I loved Carlisle right away. I don't know why, but I was just really interested in him.

5. Did Edward's cool and even sarcastic comments regarding the accident intrigue you or frighten you?
They intrigued me very much so. I was confused as to why he was being so... difficult, and not just tell her the truth, but in total I can see why. At this point I was already falling in love with Edward ♥ haha
Because Charlie's at the funeral
I'm sorry you have missed him, leave your number at the tone
and he'll get back to you

1. i think she is more the child than a mother at time

2.kinda i had to go back to read where she had seen edward because he was just suddenly there.

3.i think by the way he kinda rushed to bella when she came out and i think it was his suppose to call renee though. and the way he watched bella that night was sweet and responisable.

4.i thought if he was a vampire he was very stroung to be a doctor

5.it kinda angered me cuz i wanted him to be truth to bella and i think he thought that bella wasn't as abusrving as she really is
