While I appreciate the living checklist I see it as more objective than that, why can't the definition of life be as individual as the life itself? To me, I see the definition of living as being less about the state your body and more about what you are doing with yourself. Sticking purely to the id...

I loved the clip! I was so happy to see that they added in the part about the adrenaline rush, it makes sense to me that he would try to give her a 'reasonable' explanation for stopping the car. It lets them give more setup to Bella figuring out that he is a vampire. I always thought that for someon...

I'm really excited about the crest. I'm almost ashamed to admit that I hadn't even noticed it in any of the picture before now. But, as much as I hate that they are changing things for the movie, I find myself liking the idea of the crest. It is a good visual symbol of unity that will help to show f...

<b>1. What did you think of the tactic Bella uses to get out of her house? Does she go too far?</b> I don't think she goes too far. Things are desperate and she is doing it for Charlie's best interest, not because she actually <i>wants</i> to hurt him that badly. I'm sure if he knew the situation he...

<b>1. We get our first glimpse of "real" vampires in this chapter. What was your impression of them as a group and as individuals? Did you connect the fact that their red eyes had to do with the type of blood they drank?</b> As a group they seemed strong, they gave off a very powerful vibe to me. In...

<b>1. What do you think of Billy's conversation with Bella and her response?</b> I was surprised that Billy was so'open about it. If Bella didn't know exactly what Edward was at this point Billy's conversation would certainly have encouraged her to continue looking. I could completely understand his...

<b>1. We learn quite a bit about the physiology of vampires in this chapter as Edward tells Carlisle's story. Which is the most surprising thing you discovered -- that they didn't need to breathe, that Carlisle tried to starve himself, or that they are very difficult to kill?</b> That he tried to st...

<b>1. What were your impressions of the house that the Cullens live in?</b> I'm not entirely sure what I was expecting but that wasn't it. It was so beautiful sounding though, almost an oversized cottage feel or something. It's light, airy feel seems to contrast to the constant constraint the vampir...

<b>1. What were your first thoughts about Edward's age and human history? Were you creeped out at all that he was so very much older than she was?</b> I wasn't creeped out really. Once you can accept that Edward is a vampire the fact that he is over a hundred years old just seems to come with the te...

<b>1. The chapter is entitled "confessions".

That she is, at least a little bit, afraid...
