1. Bella called and called Jacob to try to find out what was wrong. Do you think it was the right thing for him to try to just ignore her and move on? Or do you think Jacob should have tried to get a message to her sooner?
He should have tried to tell her sooner. I understand that they didn't want him near her at the chance of hurting her, but he was hurting her more by not answering her.

2. What was your first impression of the "new" Jacob with his short hair and larger frame? Did you think he was frightening? Di you think he really had Bella's best interest in mind?
I was excited in a way. In my mind, Jacob instantly got cuter. And yeah, I did. He knew not talking to her was hurting her.

3. Billy accuses Bella of leading Jacob on. Bella herself uses the term "breaking up" to refer to the end of her relationship with Jacob. Do you agree with Billy that Bella was playing Jacob, or do you think she was sincere in her feelings?
She is definitely sincere with her feelings, she's just too stubborn to realize them at the time.

4. What did you think the sound was tapping at Bella's window at the end of the chapter. Did you think it was Jacob... or Edward... or Victoria... or someone else all together?
I think the succession was Victoria, Edward, and finally Jacob.

Jacob should have spoken to her A LOT sooner.

I think (with knowledge from Eclipse) that he DID have her best interests at heart but he shouldn't have cut her out out of his life like he did! It scared her.

I don't know... :?:

First I thought Edward for a split second, then Victoria. Never did I imagine it would be Jacob. lol

Jacob should have called her, at least told her he still exisited at least.
She was freaking OUT.
He didn't need to make her sweat like that.


2. What was your first impression of the "new" Jacob with his short hair and larger frame? Did you think he was frightening? Di you think he really had Bella's best interest in mind?

"Jacob just got a whole lot hotter!" Was my first impression.
:D
However, he didn't need to act furious at her. She didn't do anything to him, and if he really wanted to separate himself from her he could have done it nice and gently.


3. Billy accuses Bella of leading Jacob on. Bella herself uses the term "breaking up" to refer to the end of her relationship with Jacob. Do you agree with Billy that Bella was playing Jacob, or do you think she was sincere in her feelings?

I honestly think Bella began developing feelings for Jacob, in place of Edward. And in this subconcious state of mind [she won't admit to herself she has feelings like that for anyone], she may have been unintentionally leading him on.

4. What did you think the sound was tapping at Bella's window at the end of the chapter. Did you think it was Jacob... or Edward... or Victoria... or someone else all together?

I thought it was Victoria!
:shock:
But I hoped it would be Edward or at least Jacob.

:D

He should have called her at least and try to get the message to her sooner

2. What was your first impression of the "new" Jacob with his short hair and larger frame? Did you think he was frightening? Di you think he really had Bella's best interest in mind?
my first impression was "what he changed?!"
ha no but i didn't really think he was frightenining but he could have handled the situation differently.

3. Billy accuses Bella of leading Jacob on. Bella herself uses the term "breaking up" to refer to the end of her relationship with Jacob. Do you agree with Billy that Bella was playing Jacob, or do you think she was sincere in her feelings?
Yes i guess i do agree with Billy that bella was just playing with jacob. but yet again i didn't know for sure.

4. What did you think the sound was tapping at Bella's window at the end of the chapter. Did you think it was Jacob... or Edward... or Victoria... or someone else all together?
Victoria.

1) Bella called and called Jacob to try to find out what was wrong. Do you think it was the right thing for him to try to just ignore her and move on? Or do you think Jacob should have tried to get a message to her sooner?
I'm not that angry at Jacob for not answering Bella's calls because he was still so confused and terrified about what had happened to him himself and also had the orders from Sam. However, I think he should have reassured her that it had nothing to do with her or something and should have realised how much he was hurting Bella, when her heart had been broken before.

2) What was your first impression of the "new" Jacob with his short hair and larger frame? Did you think he was frightening? Did you think he really had Bella's best interest in mind?
I got a real shock! "Noooo!!! What happened to my Jacob???"

3) Billy accuses Bella of leading Jacob on. Bella herself uses the term "breaking up" to refer to the end of her relationship with Jacob. Do you agree with Billy that Bella was playing Jacob, or do you think she was sincere in her feelings?
No, I thought it was pretty mean of Billy to accuse her like that. Jacob was just the only one she could hold onto at that time to stop herself from going crazy. And after all, it was more than just a friendship for her...

4) What did you think the sound was tapping at Bella's window at the end of the chapter. Did you think it was Jacob... or Edward... or Victoria... or someone else all together?
Victoria! I was terrified!!!
"Fall down again, Bella?"
"No, Emmett. I punched a werewolf in the face."

"It's not the face, but the expressions on it. It's not the voice, but what you say. It's not how you look in that body, but the things you do with it. [i]You[/i] are beautiful."

I think he should have at least told her it was over, not just ignore her. That made it worse and made her want to know even more what was going on.

2. What was your first impression of the "new" Jacob with his short hair and larger frame? Did you think he was frightening? Di you think he really had Bella's best interest in mind?
I thought he was frightening. I thought Sam had influenced Jacob against Bella and that was why he was avoiding her.


3. Billy accuses Bella of leading Jacob on. Bella herself uses the term "breaking up" to refer to the end of her relationship with Jacob. Do you agree with Billy that Bella was playing Jacob, or do you think she was sincere in her feelings?
I think she was very contradicting with a lot of her actions. Yes she always told Jacob they would only ever be friends, but she did nothing to really discourage his romantic interest. I don't think it was intentional, just selfish on her part. All she knew is he helped her forget the pain of Edward leaving and she couldn't give that up. I don't think she realized her true feelings for Jacob.


4. What did you think the sound was tapping at Bella's window at the end of the chapter. Did you think it was Jacob... or Edward... or Victoria... or someone else all together?
I thought it was Victoria, but the more you think about it, she wouldn't knock, she would just open the window and come right in.

This is the first time I thought Jacob was truly selfish, he knew beyond a doubt Bella wouldn't give up, and he knew that she would end up discovering the secret. (I still liked him as a character though) He should have answered he calls and lied to her, maybe telling her some big lie like he couldn't be friends with her because he would always want something more, but that would have been selfish too because she would have been handed a guilt card that she would have, more than likely, played right into.
Maybe there was no solution maybe Jacob was stuck between a rock and a hard place (Good question! It's really got me thinking!!)

2. What was your first impression of the "new" Jacob with his short hair and larger frame? Did you think he was frightening? Do you think he really had Bella's best interest in mind?
For that particular moment I was angry at him. He was hurting Bella and she had already been so through much I thought it was so unfair of him to treat her so aggressively, I knew he was coming into some realizations of his own but there was no need to be so completely bitter about it. I could have really slapped him up side the head for what he was doing.

3. Billy accuses Bella of leading Jacob on. Bella herself uses the term "breaking up" to refer to the end of her relationship with Jacob. Do you agree with Billy that Bella was playing Jacob, or do you think she was sincere in her feelings?
She was sincere, she thought of Jacob as her best friend and she had made it very clear that she didn't expect her intentions to change, Jacob knew this and he knew the risks involved it was unfair of Billy to play off of her emotions like that. He was probably doing it for her own good but it was unnecessary to be so cruel.

4. What did you think the sound was tapping at Bella's window at the end of the chapter. Did you think it was Jacob... or Edward... or Victoria... or someone else all together?
I freaked out I thought it was Victoria, I could imagine her taunting Bella like that. I shuddered when Bella got out of bed to check.

A: Should have tried sooner. Knowing what she'd already gone through.

2. What was your first impression of the "new" Jacob with his short hair and larger frame? Did you think he was frightening? Di you think he really had Bella's best interest in mind?

A: Our Jacob was gone. Here was the new Jacob and I didn't like him at all.

3. Billy accuses Bella of leading Jacob on. Bella herself uses the term "breaking up" to refer to the end of her relationship with Jacob. Do you agree with Billy that Bella was playing Jacob, or do you think she was sincere in her feelings?

4. What did you think the sound was tapping at Bella's window at the end of the chapter. Did you think it was Jacob... or Edward... or Victoria... or someone else all together?

A: Naturally I had hoped Edward.

-it was very wrong and rude. i mean after all they've been through... that was bad. yup, he should have found a way to tell her sooner.

2. What was your first impression of the "new" Jacob with his short hair and larger frame? Did you think he was frightening? Di you think he really had Bella's best interest in mind?
-i thought it fit his wolf persona. but he didn't seem all that frightening. :P and i think he really does have bella's best interest in mind.

3. Billy accuses Bella of leading Jacob on. Bella herself uses the term "breaking up" to refer to the end of her relationship with Jacob. Do you agree with Billy that Bella was playing Jacob, or do you think she was sincere in her feelings?
-i think she was sincere in her feelings, but she doesn't love jacob as much as he loves her.

4. What did you think the sound was tapping at Bella's window at the end of the chapter. Did you think it was Jacob... or Edward... or Victoria... or someone else all together?
-i honestly thought it was just a tree, and that bella was just scaring herself. :lol:

I don't think that he should have left her hanging the way that he did. She obviously was not stable emotionally on her own and he was helping her to cope and he knew that. He needed to inform her in some form or fashion a bit earlier on that he couldn't be around her because it isn't like she exactly needed more emotional damage.

2. What was your first impression of the "new" Jacob with his short hair and larger frame? Did you think he was frightening? Did you think he really had Bella's best interest in mind?

I did think he was a bit frightening but not because of his physical appearance but the way he was acting and how he wasn't all smiles like he was before. That was the scary part. I figured that something was up and he did have her best interest at heart. I'm not 100% sure but I think it was at this time that I put my finger on the fact that he's a werewolf. I don't quite remember because the first time around I read them fairly quickly. :P

3. Billy accuses Bella of leading Jacob on. Bella herself uses the term "breaking up" to refer to the end of her relationship with Jacob. Do you agree with Billy that Bella was playing Jacob, or do you think she was sincere in her feelings?

A bit of a combination. I don't think she is purposefully though. She needed someone for comfort and Jake was there and she began to have feelings for him deep down whether she realized it or not at the very beginning of it. It was more than a friendship he became her life after Edward left.

4. What did you think the sound was tapping at Bella's window at the end of the chapter. Did you think it was Jacob... or Edward... or Victoria... or someone else all together?

I don't think that I thought it was Victoria at first but I did think it was something sinister and definitely not good. Thankfully I was wrong.
Here, there, and everywhere...that's where you'll find me.
