What I mean is that the circumstances could be exactly the same, but if Ms. Meyer told us Jessica was selfless and Bella shallow, with no change to either character's circumstance most people who defend Bella as a person with mostly admirable qualities despite a difficult life would instead sympath...

OH, Yeah, Absolutely!! If she doesn't I'll cry! Bella has made her choice to be with Edward. She choose to become part of his world, knowing the circumstances of that choice. It's the ultimate act of love. Yes i agree. She's had time to overthink things, and this is what she wants . How can she be ...

emmett_<3- LOL!!! Bella will never learn... I'm kind of nervous if the book is going to be based off a Midsummer's night's dream...then everyone's emotions are going to be screwed up. Shakespeare's tragedies were funnier than the comedies! Tell that to Mercutio (I identify with him a good deal, and...

But if Stephenie Meyer instead just about flat out told her audience (as she tends to do) that Jessica was the selfless heroine and Bella was a weird, shy girl with an odd thing for that intriguing handsome Edward dude who scorned friendly people and happened to have a constant whiny internal monol...

You guys have to remember a few things about Bella... She was taken from her father when she was little and then had to pretty much raise her flighty mother. She had to act like the responsible one most of the time, pay the bills, cook the dinners, reel her mom in when she got carried away. She had...

Yes? No? Why? Why not? I'm extremely curious to see what you all think. yes because she truly loves him and he loves her in the same way. and someone *cough* Volturi *cough* will change her eventualy As stated before, Bella totally resists the Volturi's elite tracking skills.

Much as a sweet ending with deep sorrow would be nice, if it were done well and all . . . Isn't this book supposed to have a Midsummer Night's Dream pattern? I like that play, and hope Ms. Meyer uses it well and not poorly. But I'll say that there's no death to speak of (comedies meh - Hamlet makes ...

Personally, I'd prefer a relationship like Alice+Jasper than Bella+Edward anyday just me, but Alice and Jasper's relationship is so deep a multi- dimensional! Bella is always relying on Edward, but if I wre Alice, I wouldn't need anyone and its deeper than , oooh, he's/she's soooo hot and romantic,...
