1. Were you at all surprised by how easily things went back to normal? Did you expect something different?
-not at all. i just knew they would pick up where they left off. sure the long apologies and explanations were jsut as expected, but love like theirs cannot be thwarted by just a few konths apart, especially since edward addmitted that he had always loved bella anyway. :D

2. Do you think Bella is playing a dangerous game trying to be friends with a werewolf and date a vampire? Ignoring what you know about Eclipse - how do you think this could ever be resolved? What were your hopes for these relationships at the end of the book?
-obviously she has to choose. its always been that way, you cant have your cake and eat it too and all that. i just knew that bella would end up with edward, anything less would make me crazy. :P

3. What did you think about Jacob giving Charlie Bella's motorcycle?
-that was really low, even for jacob, whose obviously so immature. :P he was really dumb if he didnt realize that bella would already be grounded for disappearing.

4. What did you think about the difference between "bite" and "kill" and the point Jacob was making?
-i got it right away. :idea: he was threatening edward about turning bella into a vampire, because you dont need to kill, only to bite.

1. Were you at all surprised by how easily things went back to normal? Did you expect something different?

A: No. Life is like that. In movies and such there's not usually a real in between time but in real life there is. After the great victory you go home, brush your teeth, go to bed and wake up to start a new day of work and preparation for what life will toss your way.

2. Do you think Bella is playing a dangerous game trying to be friends with a werewolf and date a vampire? Ignoring what you know about Eclipse - how do you think this could ever be resolved? What were your hopes for these relationships at the end of the book?

A: Yes but I don't think it's impossible to make it work. People have to choose how they're going to let circumstances affect them. Are they going to give up a good thing due to pride? I hope Edward and Bella are together forever and I hope Jacob will be both their friend.

3. What did you think about Jacob giving Charlie Bella's motorcycle?

A: Wanted to smack the boy for being stupid. Then again, Bella needs to realize the danger. Then again, Jacob needs to grow up. Perhaps if he hadn't been sulking and staying away he would have known the truth without the less than pleasant consequences.

4. What did you think about the difference between "bite" and "kill" and the point Jacob was making?

A: Fine line and it makes it all very difficult. Though to be fair, treaties can be renegotiated. Why should one person's choice to go for something like Bella wants be refused to her? That thing was written back way before anyone WANTED to become a vampire by choice. Times change and treaties sometimes have to as well. Perhaps Bella can go before the council and state her case. ;)

1. 1. Were you at all surprised by how easily things went back to normal? Did you expect something different?
I figured that things would go back to normal pretty quickly. It seems that Edward and Bella truly fit together.

2. Do you think Bella is playing a dangerous game trying to be friends with a werewolf and date a vampire? Ignoring what you know about Eclipse - how do you think this could ever be resolved? What were your hopes for these relationships at the end of the book?
I do think Bella is being a bit dangerous, but you can't help who you love or like. I don't think this could ever be resolved. I think that Bella couldn't go for "normal." Ignoring what I know, I hoped that Bella would continue to love Edward and Jacob would fade away into nothing but a great friend.

3. What did you think about Jacob giving Charlie Bella's motorcycle?
I think there were a lot of reasons behind it. The number one reason I believe is because he was jealous that she picked Edward over him. I also think there was a bit of him that was just trying to protect her.

I was thinking, crap, no matter what the treaty would be broken if Bella was going to be a vampire.

1. I wasn't surprised that things went back to normal easily, since we already knew that nothing had changed much when the Cullens left. I was expecting Victoria to keep trying to get to Bella! Isn't she crazy? Did I just assume that? Well anyway, if she is crazy then, it shouldn't have mattered that the Cullens were back, right?
2. Yes, it's inevitable that she would have to pick a side somewhere down the line and it was foolish and masochistic to continue both of the relationships knowing this. Ignoring everything I know from Eclipse? The situation could have only been resolved by one of them dying or Bella giving up one of them. (good thing Eclipse opened up some other options, eh?)
3. I was furious at Jacob :evil: How could he just betray her like that? Doesn't a promise mean anything to him? Clearly he does not understand the basic rules of friendship :roll:
4. I thought it was strangely insightful of the Quileutes to use bite instead of kill, as in changing someone was the same as killing them.

1. I was expecting maybe a little throwback, but, knowing the Cullens, it was predictable.

2. I was hoping that that was the last time Bella would ever see Jake and that Bella and Edward would get married and have cute little vampire babies. (even thought I know vampires can't reproduce).

3. I think Jake is a jealous jerk.

4. It means Edward can't turn Bella into a vampire because it would start a war. That stinks. But after reading eclipse, I have hope!
"I was with Edward in my happy place."
