I really don't think Edward knows Bella better than she knows herself. Why would Jacob be so much better with aspects of Bella, then? Because he understands her better-in many ways, than Edward does (not completely, of course). For instance, Edward doesn't seem to know Bella well enough to see she'l...

Yes. I absolutely agree. there are so many things i like about edwards charachter. There are a few things that bother me. Jacob compares Bella's love for him like a drug. And I feel in many ways it is. Edward often makes choices that seem to be more "addiction" based. His intentions are good, in hi...

The only problem I have with the "Bella is allowing it" argument is that I have seen it used to make what Edward does completely negligible or allowable (not that I think that's what you're doing, Hera ). Even if Bella allows it, I don't think that makes his actions right . I still don't think his t...

sure we can discuss mine later..hadnt really realized there was another question already ~Vici Thanks, Vici! You get dibs as soon as this conversation runs out! Is it morally wrong to live vicarously through others? Do we, as humans, do it consciously or unconsciously? I think there's a sharp line ...

Well, since we have two new topics, is anyone willing to put theirs on hold? Both are great, but they are a little too different to discuss at once. If anyone volunteer's, we'll say they have dibs on the next question? I don't want to put it to a vote and risk hurting anyone's feelings. (and if no o...

Sorry, December , but this really isn't the place. Unless Bella's fear of marriage (for whatever reason) has something to do with Edward's being or not being controlling (or manipulative, or anything that falls under the category of "flaw"), I'd like to keep it seperate from this thread (there are t...

I would have stopped. Taken several deep breaths. Then called Alice to confirm, or call home just to get some support in my grief. Kept breathing. I think Edward went into a state of panic that blinded him to his other options except the one unfortunate one. That's why he should have kept breathing....

Well, first off I want to say thank you for the great posts! Second...like firefly , I want to believe that Bella is more of a surviver than given credit for, but maybe now that she's entered a new stage of life, it may not be so true anymore. Me, I was just thinking about her emotional survival ski...

While the scene is very interesting, I'm not sure I like at all the tone of the way both boys speak about Bella while she's there-like she's a child who isn't supposed to understand what they're speaking about. I only had the chance to read through the book twice before I lent it out but I was unde...

I don't agree with this at all. I'm not convinced that Bella truly wants to get married at all. I think at the end of Eclipse, she realizes that she doesn't have a choice . She feels forced to marry Edward. Once again she's doing something to please him instead of being honest with him and hurting ...
