1. What were your impressions of the house that the Cullens live in?
I liked how the house was in the middle of a forest. It gave them the privacy they needed.

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.
I thought Carlisle and Esme were so sweet. Emse was so motherly and accepting to Bella, and didn't show any signs of not liking her because she was human. As for Carlisle, you could see he was really smart and wise. Both Carlisle and Esme seem like the kind of person you'd want to talk to if your sad, and they'd surely comfort as best as they can.


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?
To be honost, I didnt see anything coming.


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 Edward is more nervous. Charlie would be able to accept the fact that Bella has a boyfriend but it would be harder for Edward to tell his whole family his girlfriend is human. Plus, hed half to keep her safe especially around Jasper, since her blood smells so sweet.

I thought it suited them.

I loved them right away, I couldn't wait to hear more about them!

I had absolutely no idea it would create such an impact. But I was scared and thought and interaction might occure between them and Bella (aka the danger magnet).


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?

Edward is nervous about scaring Bella. Bella is nervous about what the Cullen's will think of her. She doesn't care about the fact that they're vampires. She's only human and wants them to like her. Edward is just worried about her running away screaming, never to return. I'd be more nervous if I were Bella

they are lovely persons esme is the mother anyone would want, she's not jelouse with her son and wants him to be happy, so protective and so passionate that there's no way to not love her. and carlisle, his a very respectable person, just think that he's a vampire that take care humans that's awsome

i would have loved to live there!! it sounded so cool!!

Sweet. they made good "parents." especially Esme.

i thought nothing of it. she had said they wouldnt bother them, so i believed her. i was soo surprised when it turned into the hunt.

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?

Bella because she has a very protective dad. he doesnt want anything to happen to her. plus Bella spends so much time with Edward that he gets kind of suspicious.

"You," I mumbled almost incoherently.
"I'm yours."

I wish I could buy it.

They seem sweet and relieved that edward found someone

I didn't see anything coming

I think Edward is more nervous. He is dating a human and bringing her to a house of vampires. Where as Bella can just try and act natural and just lie to charlie

1. What were your impressions of the house that the Cullens live in?
It sounded beautiful and open, a place where they can truley be themselves.

2. This is the first time Bella meets the Cullens ( other than Carlisle ) and gets to for an impression based on her experience alone.

They seem sweet and like they are really happy for Edward. They are very careful not to scare Bella which was nice.


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?

I didnt think much of it other than my heart melting when Edward said he would be very over protective for a while. I had no idea it would turn into such a disaster.

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 they are both nervous but for very different reasons. Bella has to meet a house full of vampires and may also be nervous about Charlie's reaction to Edward. Edward is just worried about scaring Bella off and probably nervous about Charlie liking him.

1. I love that house. The way it's descried, is just so perfect you can picture it in your mind. How it's by the mountains and the river. My favorite part is the glass back

2. I think they're great. Especially Esme, she's so happy that Edward finally has someone, she would love Bella if she had webbed feet.

3. When that happened I was like oh crap. I knew Bella smelled good but I wasn't sure how the other vampires would react. So in a way i thought it would turn in to someting

4. I think they're equally nerves, because they both have different problems. Edward is afraid to be around Bella's family because of the fear of hurting her or them. And Bella's a bit afraid because they're vampires, but really because she's worried about what they will think about here

Woooow, very nice. It also sounds like the type of house that has a lot of rich historical value behind it. It's also a house very fitting to the Cullen's. :P

Sweet, sweet and very accepting people, very reasonable. It was lovely to see Esme let Bella know how happy she was to have her around.

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?
I didn't take it as anymore more than a mere mention. I thought that maybe it could be a problem, but nothing on the level that it ended up being.

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'd say their probably on the same level of nervousness. Edward is probably still concerned about how Bella is going to react to a vampire family, or him in general, and Bella is afraid his family will look down upon her because she's human, or that she'll do something to really offend them.

They seem like any other parent meeting their sons girlfriend (she is more then that though more like soul mate ha ha) for the first time

well knowing how bella is and knowing that stephenie meyer probably wouldn't mention them coming unless something important was going to happen so I kind of guessed but not totally

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 because edward just seems so calm

1. What were your impressions of the house that the Cullens live in?


First thought was: Whoaa, Nice house. they're definitely loaded.
Second thought: Glass wall? Light and open? They are NOT your average vampires.

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.

I liked them both, especially how they seemed happy for Edward. And Esme was really sweet and welcoming towards Bella, she was just so...motherly.

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?

I thought that perhaps it would cause some trouble, but I never imagined it would be as bad as it was. I guess at that time I was too focused on Bella's interaction with the Cullens.

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?

Bella, since she's clearly nervous about the impression she is going to make and if they're going to like her, plus add on to that the fact that these are vampires she's meeting, not your regular human folks. I'm sure deep down she was pretty intimidated and scared by that.
