1. The chapter starts with Bella talking describing the sounds she hears because she is in too much pain to open her eyes. Were you able to put together exactly what happened, or did you have moments when you wondered what took place?
I figured it out... I realized sometime around when she wrote the letter that Edward would have to save her. Somewhat stupidly, I forgot that Alice would know where she was, though.

2. Did you think Edward would be changing Bella into a vampire because it was a life and death situation?
No! I'm kind of ashamed to say that the thought didn't even cross my mind. But then again nobody ever says anything about changing Bella until the end of Twilight, until the next chapter, so...

At this point in Twilight, I was going crazy, thinking that Bella was going to die and everything would end really badly. I was literally gripping the book with both hands praying that Bella would be okay. At first, I was sort of speed reading through the chapter, but I did get that the "angel" voice was Edward. I also understood what Bella was hearing and how she felt. The only thing that I didn't understand were..hmm....this is kind of gruesome...the "crunching and snapping" sounds that she heard. That is the one part that I still don't get. Anywayz...I understood the chapter well enough to know what was going on.

2. Did you think Edward would be changing Bella into a vampire because it was a life and death situation?

Even though I had only read Twilight, and didn't understand Edward fully, I knew that he probably wouldn't have. Then again...if he had to save her life, and he sure didn't want to live without her...NETSPEAK IS SO UNATTRACTIVE PLEASE FIX ME!. That's a tough question to say yes or no to.

krazykat1770:

just so u know, the crunching/snapping sound was either:
1. bella's leg breaking (cuase it basicly snapped in 2 and u could hear it crunch (& yes it is a little sickening))
or:
2. when she broke her rib cage (u might have also been able to hear the bones snapp on that 1 2)
Or...
3. when she crashed into the miror and the glass broke (that wouls b loud... la duh... LOL)

there u go...
just so u can understand it's amazing-ness even more now... hehehe!!

1) yeah... i had some idea what had happened but it was a little confusing at first

2) i didn't really think that edward was going to do it, but i thought that maybe he wouldn't be brave enough to suck the posin out. :?

Does Stephenie ever say if Edwards eyes changed color after "cleaning" Bella's wound? Years later this just now occurs to me.duh?

The first time I read it, I had to think about it for a while, but I got it. Now I remember it each time I read it again.

I realy hoped he would, but I'm pretty sure I knew he wouldn't.
I absolutely adore Twilight, Harry Potter, and anything to do with them!

I figured she was alive, but barely. James really mangled her. Having to listen to the sound of your own bones breaking is scary enough, then enduring more attacks must have been beyond terrifying. I was surprised that James didn't kill her quickly, he must've known the Cullens would come for her.

2. Did you think Edward would be changing Bella into a vampire because it was a life and death situation

I knew he didn't, but I hope for it. I think how everyone handled the situation was the right way. Carlise and Edward knew Bella wasn't ready to be changed so soon and they did everything they could to stop it.

It was pretty easy to put together what happened, but I was also worried because I didn't know [at the time] there was a second book.

2. Did you think Edward would be changing Bella into a vampire because it was a life and death situation?

I didn't think he would because he's so against it, but I knew he would find another way

I pretty much got it all the first time...Stephenie did a good job of explaining what was going on.
2. Did you think Edward would be changing Bella into a vampire because it was a life and death situation?
If Carlisle hadn't given him the option to suck the venom out, then I think he would have changed her. But, since he had that option, I knew he wasn't going to change Bella.
