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 wasnt sure where or why Edward just vanished the way he did. I knew it must have had something to do with Bella though. I mean why else would he have left?
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 didnt really learn much abouther personality. I know that she is pretty shy since she is coming from a new school. She doesn't seem needy. She knows how to cook, which means she must know how to take care of herself.
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 that it was really weird how he could come back and be so nice to Bella. I did think that he was just putting on a show. I didnt understand why he would be nice if he just hated her.
4. What was your first explanation for the change in Edward's eye color?
I just thought that it was something normal. I know that some people have eyes that can change color. So i thought he was like that.

I had no idea where Edward had gone. It annoyed me, actually. I wanted to learn more about him.

This part made me feel better about Bella's mom. It occurred to me that Bella was taking care of her mom instead of the other way around. She had to grow up faster than most other kids, and therefore her decision to move to Forks seemed mature and well-thought-out.

Charlie still seemed bumbling and overwhelmed to me. He still seemed like an unimportant character, just someone who was there because a 17-year-old would still live with her parents.

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 figured he was trying to make up for his hateful behavior of their first meeting. I didn't get the sense that he was putting on a show- it seemed genuine to me. It was still confusing though. I'm happy Stephenie explained it all eventually.

4. What was your first explanation for the change in Edward's eye color?
I just thought that when Edward was angry or feeling hateful, his eyes were a different color than when he wasn't. Maybe it was just a trait that vampires happened to have. It's easy to take liberty with myths. I didn't even think about hunger.

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 though he was pissed because he couldn't get out Biology with Bella and I thought he was going to leave and never come back, I was waaayy worried.

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 the exact opposite of her parents, which are the exact opposite of each other, ha.

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?
If I was Bella, I'd think he was bipolar or something, but I thought it was nice that he at least came back.

4. What was your first explanation for the change in Edward's eye color?
I thought when he was angry they turned black, and when he was in a good mood they were topaz.

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 just thought that he simply skipped school because of whatever problem he had with Bella.

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 told me that she is much more mature and grown up like other people her age and this was something which made me really like her.It also told me that she has her own life under control (as far as control works in life) and that she would probably react better in the situations in which she would end up in.

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 putting on a show because I couldn't see a reason for his initial reaction. Therefore it must have been somthing instinctive and to change that in just a few days seems quite hard to me...

4. What was your first explanation for the change in Edward's eye color?
I put it on his mood. Black eyes meant crabby mood and golden eyes meant good mood.
The key to being beautiful is to hang around with really ugly people.

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 knew he hadn't gone for good because that'd be the end of the book! I wasn't sure where he went, I don't think I came up with a good theory.

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's had to take on a more adult role early in life and take care of her parents as though she were in the parent role sometimes.

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 it was sort of a show. I didn't know exactly why he was so harsh in the beginning so I was still wondering why he was that way and then suddenly being nice.

4. What was your first explanation for the change in Edward's eye color?
I had a feeling that it had to do with his 'thirst' level. I also thought it might have been as she assumed, darker when he was angrier.

]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 just assumed he skipped school and went home, I knew it had something to do with Bella of course.
I thought it was both odd and funny. :lol:

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?
Both of those things about Charlie & Renee, showed us why Bella is the way she is.
She took on a lot of adult responsibilities with the way her parents are.


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?
It freaked me out, I was shocked because at first he was acting very rude towards her like he hated her.
Then he came back was the perfect gentlemen, I thought it was a show and I was interested in why he was behaving so oddly.

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

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

It annoyed me that he left, even with the minim interaction between Bella and him. I wasn't sure where he went the fist time I read, it just seemed off he would get up and go. It made me think that there was more to his response then met the eye.


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 says that Bella became the parent somewhere along the way and she was fine with it. To me it seemed that she liked taking care of someone. With Renee, she was the emotional support she needed until Phil came along. Charlie being unable to cook, at first read means nothing, but after finishing the series, it seems to fall into place for him and for her. She ends up with less actual food in her then ever.


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 thinking 'what the *insert curse word here*' he was a completely rude and now he wants to be something like BFF's. At first it did seem like he was putting on a show, but i think when those guys in Port Angeles tried to hurt her, and he saved her the show was over. I still thought he was rather a little rude.

4. What was your first explanation for the change in Edward's eye color?
It was either something he ate or from where ever he had gone or it was contacts even if he said they weren't.

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 honestly did not know where Edward had gone! I just remember thinking that he had something to hide and that he was very hostile. I thought that he had vanished because he could not stand Bella and he just wanted to get away from 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?
I believe that it tells us that she had to grow up kinda fast. She knew how to take care of herself. She was almost the responsible adult when it came to her relationship with her mom. So when she came to live with charlie, she was already established(as established as you can be as a 17 year old).

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?
Again i was kinda confused with why he was acting so strangely. I did not think he was putting on a show i just thought that maybe he had changed his mind and realized that she was not an awful person. I really kinda of stayed a little confused while i read this first part of this book :oops:

4. What was your first explanation for the change in Edward's eye color?
oooooo his eye color..... well i thought that he might have some kinda of thing where his eyes changed with his mood.

Yes, because a vampire slumber party is the pinnacle of safety conscious behavior.

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 sure where he'd gone but after his intial reaction to Bella I assumed it was to get away from her for awhile.

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 thought that Bella was extremely mature for her age. Basically having to parent her parents I think that put a lot of pressure on her to be a grown up.

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 wasn't sure what was up. From his first reaction I thought he had feelings for her but I wasn't sure what the hostility was toward her in the first chapter and then his change in the second chapter.

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

I thought that maybe he had eaten and that maybe it also explained his suddenly nice behavior toward Bella.
