1. What did you think of Alice's bribe? What does it say to you that she not only had that much cash handy, but that she thought it would take that much money to bribe the officer?
I laughed at that part. I thought it was funny, and obviously, Alice wasn't taking any chances. She thought it through.

2. Did you ever think Bella wasn't going to make it in time?

I was nervous, and reading extremely quickly, but I knew that Edward wasn't going to die. There was still one more book and about one hundred pages left.

3. How did you respond when Edward assumed they were both dead?
He seemed somewhat delirious. And I loved it when he determined he was in hell, but he didn't care, because he was with Bella.

4. Edward pretty much gave up the moment tiny, little Jane approched. What was your assumption about Jane when you first saw her - be honest!
I assumed that he gave up because the Cullens were outnumbered. Once Jane's special power was revealed, I had to go back and reread it. I didn't think to much of Jane.

5. Bella assumed that Edward was being nice, but not romantic, by protecting her as they made their way down the tunnel. What did you think of the way he was holding her and protecting her?
I love that part. Even though Bella thought that he was just being nice, the fact that he was willing to risk himself just to protect her, and that he was holding on to her the whole time, made me think that he still loved her.
And who can say what dreams are? Wake me in time to be lonely and sad...

1) I didn't think much of Alice's bribe, it was unsurprising. It says that Alice saw what would have to be done and the Cullens have a lot of money.

2) I thought that she would make it, if she didn't, she would not ever be able to go on and there would be no point to the rest of the book.

3) I was like in my head, NO! You idiot! You're alive, Bella's alive!

4) I was wondering how such a tiny vampire could have that much effect on them.

5) I didn't even want to consider it, it could have gone either way, Edward just being nice, or that he loved her.

She knew that Volterra was protected and a safe place. Just because she wanted to get in, doesn't mean she would.
It says that Alice is a genius. A darn genius.


2. Did you ever think Bella wasn't going to make it in time?
Yes. How could it not have crossed my mind? If she didn't...everything would be different. EDWARD...could've been...not dead, but gone. And, I'm sorry, but I can't imagine any world without the glory of Edward Cullen. It hurts too much to try.

3. How did you respond when Edward assumed they were both dead?
I...kind of giggled. I thought he was funny and had to reread the passage over.

4. Edward pretty much gave up the moment tiny, little Jane approched. What was your assumption about Jane when you first saw her - be honest!
Everyone keeps descrirbing her as a 12 year-old child. I didn't. I thought she was just small, like Alice. By this time, I was very much confused and kept reading just waiting for either soemone to die, or an explanation about all of these people. I didn't know what to think about Jane.

5. Bella assumed that Edward was being nice, but not romantic, by protecting her as they made their way down the tunnel. What did you think of the way he was holding her and protecting her?
This was their only reunion. And Edward was going to make it as good as he can. But, still, I think he was protecting Bella from...everyone.

Wow...How much money did she just give him? Was it fake money? Even though she says she can't see what will happen ahead to Bella...she must have known something to have that much cash with her....although like Edward always say...humans are pretty easy to judge!

2. Did you ever think Bella wasn't going to make it in time?

Hope is more like it...just keep chanting...she will make it there...she will not fall, she will not fall!

3. How did you respond when Edward assumed they were both dead?

He does think that he has a soul! He thought he was in heaven! Wow...


4. Edward pretty much gave up the moment tiny, little Jane approched. What was your assumption about Jane when you first saw her - be honest!

I couldn't believe that he gave up that easy...I mean what was with this tiny little girl....obviously he knew her somehow!


5. Bella assumed that Edward was being nice, but not romantic, by protecting her as they made their way down the tunnel. What did you think of the way he was holding her and protecting her?

I thought everything was back to normal...I was like Bella stop being stupid..he loves you! Stop it! I felt like I could tell he loved her...she was just being silly!

1. I wasn't suprised that she did that. Sje probably saw it coming ahead of time and came prepaired.

2. I thought Bella was going to make it there in time. I figured that there would be more to the book then her not making it there on time.

3. I was happy. It showed me he really did care and love her.

4. To be honest I was kind of confused at first. I was reading it quickly so I thought she was an older women and it confused me. But when I re-read it, I realized that Edward and Alice were aware if Janes power and were not willing to deal with it.

5. I thought he did it out of affection. It showed me that he still loves her and cares for her. Like when she shivered he stopped touching her because he thought he was making her cold.

well, she can see the future, so I take she came prepared.

2. Did you ever think Bella wasn't going to make it in time?
I knew she would but that didn't make me less edgy and nervous during her search for Edward

3. How did you respond when Edward assumed they were both dead?
I was so happy that he was back with Bella and back in the story that I didn't care, they were together again at last, and that was all that mattered.

4. Edward pretty much gave up the moment tiny, little Jane approched. What was your assumption about Jane when you first saw her - be honest!
humph, I thought Jane was someone powerful and unpleasant, someone that you didn't mess with.


5. Bella assumed that Edward was being nice, but not romantic, by protecting her as they made their way down the tunnel. What did you think of the way he was holding her and protecting her?

I was surprised that she thought that he was being just nice, again I was just happy that they were together again.

2. Did you ever think Bella wasn't going to make it in time? yes, the mid-day had already begun to ring out!

3. How did you respond when Edward assumed they were both dead? Shocked but really happy, he was alive and back together :D

4. Edward pretty much gave up the moment tiny, little Jane approched. What was your assumption about Jane when you first saw her - be honest! Pathetic! I thought he was just distraught and the weight of all this time without Bella had crushed his hopes of fighting 3 vamps

5. Bella assumed that Edward was being nice, but not romantic, by protecting her as they made their way down the tunnel. What did you think of the way he was holding her and protecting her?

Alice's brib made me laugh..so hard. I loved it so much. It shocked me so much to see how much money It was. I thought it was going to be like a hundred dollar bill..but WOW. Those guards must be really expensive.

2. Did you ever think Bella wasn't going to make it in time?
Yes, I did at one point think bella might not make it..but I never thought they were going to die..I though the plot would just be carried out longer.

3. How did you respond when Edward assumed they were both dead?
I thought it was beautiful..escaipally when he whispered Romeo's words to her..It made me want to cry.

4. Edward pretty much gave up the moment tiny, little Jane approched. What was your assumption about Jane when you first saw her - be honest!
I couldn't understand why he gave up so easily..My excat thought was " what makes her so special..to give up." Little did I know about her gift. I just thought she was a vampire who got turned at a small age.

5. Bella assumed that Edward was being nice, but not romantic, by protecting her as they made their way down the tunnel. What did you think of the way he was holding her and protecting her?
I knew he still loved her..no love like that can die..I was really doubting edward...if he actually loved bella..but after he whispered those words and was bending down to kiss her hair I knew he stil loved her and those words in the forest meant nothing.

I didn't think much of it.

2. Did you ever think Bella wasn't going to make it in time?
At one point

3. How did you respond when Edward assumed they were both dead?
Stupid your not dead, get back into the shadows

4. Edward pretty much gave up the moment tiny, little Jane approched. What was your assumption about Jane when you first saw her - be honest!
there had to be something about her that made him give up for a bit.

5. Bella assumed that Edward was being nice, but not romantic, by protecting her as they made their way down the tunnel. What did you think of the way he was holding her and protecting her?
I knew he wasn't just being nice, but i didn't think that it was romantic. I thought it was just a reaction that he had, for he had saved Bella so many times before.
