1) What did you think of Billy's convesation with Bella and her response?

I liked Bellas response, I was very annoyed at Billy and just wanted him to leave...

2) Did you approve of the way Charlie treated Edward as the first boyfriend Bella ever brought home?

I thought it was funny, Charlie seemed as he hasn't got any idea what to do ...it was ok how he treated Edward.

3) Edward talks about his inner turmoil regarding constantly putting Bella into danger. Do you think he is to hard on himself?

No and yes. He has to be hard to himself, because he IS a great risk for Bella, but he will never harm her, he just saved her several times!! And she wants to stay with him, so...yes, he's a bit to hard.

4) Edward finally says "I love you". Were you disappointed in how it came out almost off-handedly.

No. It was just...right how he said it (as anything he say *sigh*).

5) We learn more about Esme, was your impression of her changed after learning more about her?

I did not care much about Esme before that chapter, because I didn't know her well...after that I liked her, she was so honest.

"No, I can't."
"Perhaps you're right."

1) What did you think of Billy's conversation with Bella and her response?
I was a bit surprised because I didn't expect Bella actually telling him that she knew more about the Cullens than him. I thought that might have been the wrong move.

2) Did you approve of the way Charlie treated Edward as the first boyfriend Bella ever brought home?
Well, I did get annoyed when he kept calling him Edwin. I thought his response was reasonable.

3) Edward talks about his inner turmoil regarding constantly putting Bella into danger. Do you think he is to hard on himself?
He does worry too much. Bella wants to be with him, she knows the danger that she can get into.

4) Edward finally says "I love you". Were you disappointed in how it came out almost off-handedly.
No, I wasn't disappointed. It was very romantic, even though I don't think Bella saw it coming. I didn't either.

5) We learn more about Esme, was your impression of her changed after learning more about her?
She.. seems braver than she actually is.

1) What did you think of Billy's convesation with Bella and her response?
It seems to me that Billy is a little to nosy, and i think Bella sees that. When i read the chapter, Billy was starting to get on my nerves...


2) Did you approve of the way Charlie treated Edward as the first boyfriend Bella ever brought home?
The way he reacted was probably normal for a single father, but what made me confused was that charlie liked edward and the cullen family.


3) Edward talks about his inner turmoil regarding constantly putting Bella into danger. Do you think he is to hard on himself?
Maybe, but i just wish he would change her already!


4) Edward finally says "I love you". Were you disappointed in how it came out almost off-handedly.
no, it was sweet! :D


5) We learn more about Esme, was your impression of her changed after learning more about her?
no, since the beginning i had a good feeling about her.

1) What did you think of Billy's convesation with Bella and her response?
I thought Bella handled it very well.. she was polite, but firm in letting him know she knew what she was doing and it was her business who she told about it and when.

2) Did you approve of the way Charlie treated Edward as the first boyfriend Bella ever brought home?
I thought Charlie did fine for it being the first time his little girl brought home a "boyfriend" :)

3) Edward talks about his inner turmoil regarding constantly putting Bella into danger. Do you think he is to hard on himself?
I think sometimes he is waaay to hard on himself..but thats one of the reasons we all love him right??

4) Edward finally says "I love you". Were you disappointed in how it came out almost off-handedly.
no, I think it was done just right..it fit the moment perfectly..

5) We learn more about Esme, was your impression of her changed after learning more about her?
not so much no.. she is a sweet loving person..and she got 5 "children" in the end so she seems very content with how it all turned out :)

1) What did you think of Billy's convesation with Bella and her response?
I honestly don't remember what was said actually, but I remember Jacob was told to go out to the car.


2) Did you approve of the way Charlie treated Edward as the first boyfriend Bella ever brought home?
Yeah, I think he did a good job, I mean he's never really spent alot of time with Bella before now and he'd think that it would have been Renee to do this think first, so I think he did alright.


3) Edward talks about his inner turmoil regarding constantly putting Bella into danger. Do you think he is to hard on himself?
Yep, but that's just him. Then again he is the vampire, seeing himself more clearly, while for Bella "love is blind"


4) Edward finally says "I love you". Were you disappointed in how it came out almost off-handedly.
Not off handedly, more spontanous is the word I'd choose. I just want Midnight Sun now, makes me wonder if he realised he said it and took in Bella's response.


5) We learn more about Esme, was your impression of her changed after learning more about her?
I never really had an impression of her to begin with except as the mother. But I only really saw her as a person more so now.[/i]

1) What did you think of Billy's convesation with Bella and her response?
I think Billy was just trying to look out for Bella. I think she thought he was wasting his breath (and I tend to agree....)

2) Did you approve of the way Charlie treated Edward as the first boyfriend Bella ever brought home?
I think Charlie was appropriately awkward with Edward... What I mean is, since Charlie has not been living with Bella for long, he was respectful enough to Edward, without being overly pushy about their relationship.

3) Edward talks about his inner turmoil regarding constantly putting Bella into danger. Do you think he is to hard on himself?
Yes and No. I think he is hard on himself when he says he should leave her. But I think it's good that he remembers that he could, potentially, harm her if he lost control.

4) Edward finally says "I love you". Were you disappointed in how it came out almost off-handedly.
Not at all! I thought it showed that it's something he thinks about so often that it's like second nature to him at that point.

5) We learn more about Esme, was your impression of her changed after learning more about her?
No. I still thougth Esme was wonderful. If anything, I thought moreso after learning more about her.

1) What did you think of Billy's convesation with Bella and her response?
I think Billy was trying to warn her, in case she didn't know what the Cullens are. But I think Bella was especially strong to stand up to Billy and tell him, "thanks for your concern, now butt out!"

2) Did you approve of the way Charlie treated Edward as the first boyfriend Bella ever brought home?
I thought Charlie did very well and treated Edward with respect: taking his coat, asking to sit down, doing a little small talk. Charlie was probably just as nervous as Bella. It's probably good that they left so fast, so Charlie wouldn't get too nosey with Edward.

3) Edward talks about his inner turmoil regarding constantly putting Bella into danger. Do you think he is to hard on himself?
Yes, I do think he's too hard on himself. Bella knows what he is and still wants to be there. My guess is that Edward didn't bargain on Bella having to meet some 'traditional' vampires so soon.

4) Edward finally says "I love you". Were you disappointed in how it came out almost off-handedly.
No, I think it was rather sweet. He's still so unsure of his emotions that he think he's doing a bad job of it. awww!

5) We learn more about Esme, was your impression of her changed after learning more about her?
I understood her to be the 'mother' of the group and she wants the best for all of her 'kids' especially Edward. She seemed very loving.

1) What did you think of Billy's convesation with Bella and her response?

Billy meant well, trying to protect Bella from harm. Even though it is none of his business whom she is together with. He annoyed me a little bit and I really liked Bella's response. She made it clear that she knew about the Cullens' secret and that it was her desicion and nothing that Billy had a right to interfere with.

2) Did you approve of the way Charlie treated Edward as the first boyfriend Bella ever brought home?

I guess I did. Well, it was understandable that Charlie was not enthusiastic about it as it is the very first time and he had no experience in that field. I think he was nice enough though and put lots of effort into making Edward feel welcome.

3) Edward talks about his inner turmoil regarding constantly putting Bella into danger. Do you think he is to hard on himself?

Yes, he is definitely too hard with himself. After all, it is not his fault that he is what he is and Bella loves and needs him. In my opinion, he thinks about the possible dangers far too much.

4) Edward finally says "I love you". Were you disappointed in how it came out almost off-handedly.

I liked it. And I wasn't disappointed, I was happy that he finally said it.

5) We learn more about Esme, was your impression of her changed after learning more about her?

No, I liked her right from the start and that didn't change. She is a very nice, caring person.

1) What did you think of Billy's convesation with Bella and her response?
Understandable on both sides. Billy is concerned (although he should probably not be so nosy and demanding) and Bella is in love, so it's not expected that she's going to be swayed, knowing full well how dangerous Edward is capable of being.

2) Did you approve of the way Charlie treated Edward as the first boyfriend Bella ever brought home?
It's his daughter's first boyfriend, how else is he supposed to act?

3) Edward talks about his inner turmoil regarding constantly putting Bella into danger. Do you think he is too hard on himself?
Yes. He is an amazing and hot vampire. Who cares about danger?! just kidding...sort of.

4) Edward finally says "I love you". Were you disappointed in how it came out almost off-handedly.
No. I don't think it matters how someone says I love you as long as they say it. Feelings shouldn't be left to be inferred :)

5) We learn more about Esme, was your impression of her changed after learning more about her?
Yes, of course. Esme is maternal, nurturing, a perfect mother to the children who aren't even hers biologically. I love learning more about character's histories :D

1) What did you think of Billy's convesation with Bella and her response?

It really just made me strongly dislike Billy. I was surprised with Bella (and proud of her!) for being so bold.


2) Did you approve of the way Charlie treated Edward as the first boyfriend Bella ever brought home?

Yes, I think Charlie behaved himself well enough. Bella wasn't very tolerant :roll:


3) Edward talks about his inner turmoil regarding constantly putting Bella into danger. Do you think he is to hard on himself?

Yes, and it bothers me. The relationship is 50% Bella's choice.


4) Edward finally says "I love you". Were you disappointed in how it came out almost off-handedly.

No, I actually found that rather sweet. Like he considered it so obvious that it was nothing to make a big deal over.


5) We learn more about Esme, was your impression of her changed after learning more about her?

I had loved Esme all along. If anything, I just felt sorry for her. I don't like her any less for trying to end her own life.
