Preface

Post by Alphie »

1) Your first impressions of this section. What were they?

2) What did you think brought Bella to this place? Where, exactly, did you think they were?

3) Whom did you assume the 'something bloodthirsty' waiting 'in the wings' referred to?

4) Did you know right away that she was trying to save Edward?

5) Be honest, did you think Bella would fall?

Well, to tell the truth for all but the last question I don't know what i was thinking. I was too excited and reading to fast to think about it. As for the last question, i did think that she would fall, and i continued to think that at the end of the book.

1) Your first impressions of this section. What were they?
Edward's in danger. And if Bella doesn't save him, both of them may die.

2) What did you think brought Bella to this place? Where, exactly, did you think they were?
Well, it was a bit obvious that they weren't in Forks because of a huge clock tower and crowd. But I had no idea where exactly they were. But I knew it was Edward she was racing to save.

3) Whom did you assume the 'something bloodthirsty' waiting 'in the wings' referred to?
"Bloodthirsty" kind of gives it away, a vampire. But I don't think I took the time to ponder it the first time.

4) Did you know right away that she was trying to save Edward?
Yes, after Bella stated that she was "racing to save something infinitely more precious."

5) Be honest, did you think Bella would fall?
I think I did. We know how clumsy she is.

1) Your first impressions of this section. What were they?

I was really excited by it! I thought surely that Bella wouldn't be killed, but I was scared to death that something was going to happen to Alice!

2) What did you think brought Bella to this place? Where, exactly, did you think they were?
I had no idea....I was too busy worrying if Alice was going to die!

3) Whom did you assume the 'something bloodthirsty' waiting 'in the wings' referred to?

Honestly, I assumed it was the Volturi. I read the paperback version of TW that had Ch 1 in it, so I'd read about them before I read the preface!

4) Did you know right away that she was trying to save Edward?
I assumed when I read "I wasn't running for my life; I was racing to save something infinitely more precious. My own life meant little to me, today." that she was trying to save someone else. and when she spoke of forfeiting any desire to live, I assumed it MUST be Edward. We already knew that Bella would sacrifice herselves for those she loves, but his loss would be the only thing to make her wish to die.

5) Be honest, did you think Bella would fall?

Yup! I was waiting for it the whole time!

1) Your first impressions of this section. What were they?
I actually don't know what I was thinking when I readed it the first time. I was so wrapped in the story, I was just thinking about what would happen to Bella and the Cullens.
I had no idea of what could have happened.
2) What did you think brought Bella to this place? Where, exactly, did you think they were?[/b
I supposed something like the USA or Canada, not Italy anyway.
[b]3) Whom did you assume the 'something bloodthirsty' waiting 'in the wings' referred to?

A vampire of course. In a book like this I wouldn't have expected something like a bloodthirsty bat.
4) Did you know right away that she was trying to save Edward?
Yes, only one person means so much for her.
5) Be honest, did you think Bella would fall?
Well... it would not be very suprising, she's very clumsy.[/i]

1) Your first impressions of this section. What were they?

My exact first impression: Holy sh**, this woman is good at what she does.

2) What did you think brought Bella to this place? Where, exactly, did you think they were?

I had speculated that the Volturi (though I didn't know they were called that) had something to do with where they were, but I didn't know where that was.

3) Whom did you assume the 'something bloodthirsty' waiting 'in the wings' referred to?

I translated that into "vampires" and "nearby".

4) Did you know right away that she was trying to save Edward?

Pretty much, yeah. But I couldn't imagine why he'd need help.

5) Be honest, did you think Bella would fall?


No.

1) Your first impressions of this section. What were they?

I thought Edward was in some sort of terrible trouble, but I didn't know what!

2) What did you think brought Bella to this place? Where, exactly, did you think they were?

I thought Bella was there to help Edward, but I had no I dea where that was.

3) Whom did you assume the 'something bloodthirsty' waiting 'in the wings' referred to?

I was positive it was vampires.

4) Did you know right away that she was trying to save Edward?

Yes, Who else would forfeit her desire to live for.

5) Be honest, did you think Bella would fall?


I was praying she wouldn't!

Action. It was such an intense little clip, that I'd assume the book to be adventurous. Then, once I got a few chapters in, this little preface was considered God-given information to me. It told me that Alice would have to come back and some things would need to change in order for this to work. It kept me sane when my lovely vampires had vanished. So even through the hard parts, I had high hopes for the end. =]

I don't remember very much of what I though at the time I was reading it, but I'll answer those questions I do remember.

1) Your first impressions of this section. What were they?
I think I was confused, but I was confused in the preface of Twilight as well. I think one of my thought were they must be in Paris (see next question)

2) What did you think brought Bella to this place? Where, exactly, did you think they were? First one I don't remember. I think I had read that one of the chapters were called Paris, so I assumed they were in Paris.

3) Whom did you assume the 'something bloodthirsty' waiting 'in the wings' referred to?
Don't remember, think I thought it was an unfriendly vampire who would kill Bella if she didn't manage to do some sort of task or something.

4) Did you know right away that she was trying to save Edward?
No, I don't think I did.

5) Be honest, did you think Bella would fall?
Haha, I don't remember, but I probably thought she would...

1) Your first impressions of this section. What were they?
I didn't know what to think, actually!

2) What did you think brought Bella to this place? Where, exactly, did you think they were?
Well I didn't really know why Bella was there but I thought she was in like the USA.

3) Whom did you assume the 'something bloodthirsty' waiting 'in the wings' referred to?
vampires

4) Did you know right away that she was trying to save Edward?
No, I wasn't really thinking about that because I was too excited to start reading the 1st chapter!

5) Be honest, did you think Bella would fall?
Actually I didn't..
