I picture it as a huge mansion that is very clean (but not sterile), airy and light. Lots of big rooms, decorated in light colors, traditional with modern touches.
2. This is the first time Bella meets the Cullens ( other than Carlisle ) and gets to for an impression based on her experience alone. In other words, Edward no longer describes them for her, she gets to see them herself. In this chapter, she mostly interacts with Carlisle and Esme, what were your impressions of them.
They are very warm and loving and so happy that Edward found someone to love. They instantly like Bella and are anxious to have her join their family- although I don't think they have thought of turning her into a vampire yet.
3. There is a brief mention of Alice having seen the visit of other vampires. What was your reaction to this when you first read it? Did you have any idea that it would turn into the large disaster that takes over until the end of the novel?
Darn- I speed read too quickly. I don't even remember this. I should know by now to take my time, because every single word is important in these books. Nothing is just a random line.
4. Edward and Bella describe being nervous about meeting/interacting with each other's families as boyfriend and girlfriend. Who do you think is more nervous Edward or Bella and why?
I think Bella is more nervous about Edward meeting Charlie. Edward was positive that his family would love Bella and accept her. Bella had never even dated before, and now she was suddenly dating someone. Even though her father really likes the Cullens, she's unsure of how he'll react now. She doesn't think her dad is ready for her to date someone seriously.
