Chapter Fifteen: Pressure

Post by Alphie »

These questions were created by BHG - (that's bronzehairdgirl for those of you who haven't figured that out yet!)

1.) When Bella compared being hunted by Victoria this spring break to being hunted by James last spring break, what did you think might happen?

2.) What did you think about Jacob calling himself a monster?

3.) What did you think about Jacob's reaction when he realized Bella had been bitten by James? What do you think he was thinking at the time?

4.) How did you feel when Bella told Jacob about the Cullens' extra abilities? Do you think she should or shouldn't have given him so much information?

5.) What were you thinking when Bella jumped off the cliff? When she saw Edward in the water? Did you think, as she did, that she was about to die?

Thanks BHG. :)

1.) When Bella compared being hunted by Victoria this spring break to being hunted by James last spring break, what did you think might happen?
Nothing in particular. I did think Victoria would be killed by a Cullen or the wolves by the end, so I was wrong there.

2.) What did you think about Jacob calling himself a monster?
Reminded me of how Edward thinks of himself that way. I guess it would be hard not to. But I'm surprised it isn't a little easier for Jake because unlike the vampires (with the exception of the few veggie ones) werewolves were designed for helping people from vampires.

3.) What did you think about Jacob's reaction when he realized Bella had been bitten by James? What do you think he was thinking at the time?
It was a little weird. I'm guessing he was angry that Edward/his family had allowed Bella to be so close to that kind of danger.

4.) How did you feel when Bella told Jacob about the Cullens' extra abilities? Do you think she should or shouldn't have given him so much information?
I was a little ticked. But she thought they were never coming back, so it's understandable why. I don't know if I can say what she should or shouldn't have done...I didn't like it, but I don't know if I woud have done anything differently.
5.) What were you thinking when Bella jumped off the cliff? When she saw Edward in the water? Did you think, as she did, that she was about to die?[/quote]
That part was SO sad! I had tears in my eyes when she was saying "Goodbye, I love you" and how she described joy when she was about to die and seeing him. I didn't think she would die because I knew there was more books coming. :P

1.) When Bella compared being hunted by Victoria this spring break to being hunted by James last spring break, what did you think might happen?

I thought that she would capture Bella and Edward would come and save her.... hw wrong was i??

2.) What did you think about Jacob calling himself a monster?

I felt bad for him, he was in such turmoil- not wanting to be a wolf. I was screaming "your not a monster" in my head while reading.

3.) What did you think about Jacob's reaction when he realized Bella had been bitten by James? What do you think he was thinking at the time?

I think he was wishing he could have been the one to kill James,for hurting Bella so bad and i feel when he was looking at the scar he was wondering if it had changed Bella even a little bit.

4.) How did you feel when Bella told Jacob about the Cullens' extra abilities? Do you think she should or shouldn't have given him so much information?

I felt that she betrayed them, i couldnt believe it when she told him- to me it was like if it came down to the Pack fighting the Cullen's in the future- then she would have given the Wolves an advantage.....

5.) What were you thinking when Bella jumped off the cliff? When she saw Edward in the water? Did you think, as she did, that she was about to die?

I thought he would be there to rescue her, when she was hearing his voice i believed that she was connected to his mind and that he would come back.... no i knew that she would be rescued, just not be Jacob.

1.) When Bella compared being hunted by Victoria this spring break to being hunted by James last spring break, what did you think might happen?

I didn't think much of it. I thought it was a natural conclusion for her to make.

2.) What did you think about Jacob calling himself a monster?

I thought about how Edward and none of the Cullens really had any say over what happened to them either. None of them chose this, yet they'll all, the werewolves and the vamps, have to live with it.

3.) What did you think about Jacob's reaction when he realized Bella had been bitten by James? What do you think he was thinking at the time?

I thought that he was thinking that she had been tainted somehow, and that she was already part vampire. Silly Jacob.

4.) How did you feel when Bella told Jacob about the Cullens' extra abilities? Do you think she should or shouldn't have given him so much information?


I don't think that Bella should have given them that information, simply because it wasn't her secret to tell. If a friend tells me something about them, I'm not going to run off and tell my other friends. Bella questioned herself on whether or not to tell Jacob, and she did it anyway. I think that was one time that she should have listened to her gut.

5.) What were you thinking when Bella jumped off the cliff? When she saw Edward in the water? Did you think, as she did, that she was about to die?

I didn't think she was about to die, because 1) there was so much more to the book. and 2) Bella heard Edward's voice in her head. I thought that he would keep her alive, or that Alice would come and have to change her.

1.) When Bella compared being hunted by Victoria this spring break to being hunted by James last spring break, what did you think might happen?

Honestly the 1st time through i believed that Edward was *somehow* connected to her and was thinking he was going to jump out and save her any minute.

2.) What did you think about Jacob calling himself a monster?

It was a pretty normal human reaction for what had happened to him.

3.) What did you think about Jacob's reaction when he realized Bella had been bitten by James? What do you think he was thinking at the time?

Again i wasn't really surprised. He was probably horrified, disgusted and scared for her all at the same time.

4.) How did you feel when Bella told Jacob about the Cullens' extra abilities? Do you think she should or shouldn't have given him so much information?

I didn't blame her for it. At that point she was thinking the Cullens' where never coming back so it really didn't matter anyway.

5.) What were you thinking when Bella jumped off the cliff? When she saw Edward in the water? Did you think, as she did, that she was about to die?

I still wasn't sure about my "Edward was with her the whole time" theory so i didn't know what to think. One way or another i didn't think she was really going to die because i still had a lot of book left to read :D

1.) When Bella compared being hunted by Victoria this spring break to being hunted by James last spring break, what did you think might happen?

I thought that it was just going to be a rehashing of Twilight, she would go and face her, almost die, and Edward would save her at the last second.

2.) What did you think about Jacob calling himself a monster?

At first I was like, "Ha!" And then I felt bad for him... because he has sort of the, what I like to call, "Edward Complex" where he thinks he's a monster because of what he is, and not what he does.

3.) What did you think about Jacob's reaction when he realized Bella had been bitten by James? What do you think he was thinking at the time?

I think he took it.... well, not great, but better than it could have been. I'm sure he was thinking something along the lines of "If it wasn't for that stupid bloodsucker..."

4.) How did you feel when Bella told Jacob about the Cullens' extra abilities? Do you think she should or shouldn't have given him so much information?

I was totally against it. The werewolves are pretty much the vampires enemies, and that's pretty much like espionage.

5.) What were you thinking when Bella jumped off the cliff? When she saw Edward in the water? Did you think, as she did, that she was about to die?

I thought that she was going to start drowning and that Edward would jump in and save her... because at that time I was thinking that he didn't really leave her at all.

1.) When Bella compared being hunted by Victoria this spring break to being hunted by James last spring break, what did you think might happen?

I thought that history would repeat itself. Throughout my first reading of new moon i quite strongly believed that edward was keeping tabs on her - keeping her safe really - even though he said he wouldn't be in her life. At this point, i thought bella would face victoria and edward would swoop in and save her.

2.) What did you think about Jacob calling himself a monster?

I was sadened by the parallels he drew with edward. I was a tiny bit ticked at him: he wasn't a monster if he was trying to save people.

3.) What did you think about Jacob's reaction when he realized Bella had been bitten by James? What do you think he was thinking at the time?

I think jacob wished he could've protected Bella himself, instead of the cullens - after all thats the reason werewolves exist. In th back of my mind, i wondered if Jacob would still care as much for Bella if she was a vampire. i think the same thing crossed Jacobs mind.

4.) How did you feel when Bella told Jacob about the Cullens' extra abilities? Do you think she should or shouldn't have given him so much information?

I wanted to scream "no!". to me, her telling Jacob was like Bella getting closure. It was like she was giving up on them returning - she wouldn't have told Jacob otherwise.


5.) What were you thinking when Bella jumped off the cliff? When she saw Edward in the water? Did you think, as she did, that she was about to die?

Even though i knew there was far too much book to get through for bella to die, i was extremely anxious. It didn't occur to me that her jumping off a cliff to hear edward would look like suicide, and i often wonder if, subconsciously, thats what she intended to do. Bella seeing edward in the water really showed that she loves him and would do anything to be with him. I cryed at this point - it waw bittersweet that edward would be the last thing she thought of before she died. I didn't think she would drown though; i was certain that edward would pop out of thin air and save her.

1.) When Bella compared being hunted by Victoria this spring break to being hunted by James last spring break, what did you think might happen?
Hmm...Bella's always been a vampire magnet, but she comes out alive from every vampire incident. (wow I just realized it as I wrote it). It was a bit creepy though, to realize that two spring breaks in a row, Bella was hunted by a vampire. But duh, she'd live.

2.) What did you think about Jacob calling himself a monster?
It reminded me a lot of Edward. I'm not being cruel-they arent to me either-but Jacob in his werewolf form and Edward being a vampire are both considered vampires by many people. Jacob shouldn't call himself that though, cause he has a good heart and he doesnt go around eating humans.

3.) What did you think about Jacob's reaction when he realized Bella had been bitten by James? What do you think he was thinking at the time?
I have no idea what he was thinking!! I still don't know! His reaction was...expected, kind of. But I do not know what went through his head at that time.

4.) How did you feel when Bella told Jacob about the Cullens' extra abilities? Do you think she should or shouldn't have given him so much information?
Um, so far it hasn't been used against them. I'm still a bit iffy that she told him still. But it kept Jacob sane, so thats a plus.

5.) What were you thinking when Bella jumped off the cliff? When she saw Edward in the water? Did you think, as she did, that she was about to die?
I knew she was going to jump of a cliff as soon as she thought about it. I didnt notice the storm either (hehe). I think my eyes were teary when she saw Edward when she was drowning. I wasnt sure she was going to die, but it was so possible that she could die. Though I was kind of wishing Edward would soon really be there and save her...

1.) When Bella compared being hunted by Victoria this spring break to being hunted by James last spring break, what did you think might happen?
I really didn't even think about that. The first time I read a book, I'm usually too absorbed to pay attention to huge clues, like that one. :roll:

2.) What did you think about Jacob calling himself a monster?
I felt extremely bad for Jake.That has to be absolutly horrible, thinking of yourself as a monster, especially when you had no say in it. I wanted to give him a big hug.

3.) What did you think about Jacob's reaction when he realized Bella had been bitten by James? What do you think he was thinking at the time?
I think that was a pretty normal reaction. I really don't know what he was thinking. Probably something like,how he was thankful that Edward saved Bella, yet disgusted at the same time that he let James get that close to her.

4.) How did you feel when Bella told Jacob about the Cullens' extra abilities? Do you think she should or shouldn't have given him so much information?
I really thought that she was justified in doing that. I mean, at that point, she really thought the Cullens were never coming back, so it really didn't matter if the pack knew about all their special abilities.

5.) What were you thinking when Bella jumped off the cliff? When she saw Edward in the water? Did you think, as she did, that she was about to die?
I didn't think Bella was about to die, because there was so much of the book left, and also because I read a spoiler (Grr :evil: ) that said Edward came back, and there was a happy ending. So, I really didn't know how she was going to get out of that situation, just that she was going to.

1.) When Bella compared being hunted by Victoria this spring break to being hunted by James last spring break, what did you think might happen?
Answer: I just thought it was interesting.

2.) What did you think about Jacob calling himself a monster?
Answer: I think that he just didn't want to scare Bella.

3.) What did you think about Jacob's reaction when he realized Bella had been bitten by James? What do you think he was thinking at the time?
Answer: I think his reaction was ridiculous. Who Cares! If Jacob really loves Bella then it shouldn't matter if she was a vampire or not! Though I'm probably thinking too much like Bella.

4.) How did you feel when Bella told Jacob about the Cullens' extra abilities? Do you think she should or shouldn't have given him so much information?
Answer: At first I was unsure about Bella doing that. But later (in Eclipse), when the fighting between vampires and werewolves got a little bit intense, I think it was a bad idea for Bella to tell Jacob so much.

5.) What were you thinking when Bella jumped off the cliff? When she saw Edward in the water? Did you think, as she did, that she was about to die?
Answer: I was kind of glad that she was about to die. I'd rather that Bella die than continue life with the pain of Edwards abscence. It would have been too hard to keep reading of her being in pain. Boy, am I selfish! But I did cry when Bella said her last words to Edward in her head, "Goodbye, I love you." :cry:
