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

That I had to read more. More! I had to figure out what was going down.

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

Well, I thought Edward brought her there... or at least led her there. I thought they were in London, lol. Big Ben!

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?

I assumed so... but I didn't know why Edward would need to be saved.

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

Yes, and if she didn't go sprawling on her face, I thought that she'd at least trip over her feet... or the air.

absalutly not. i had no idea, not a clue.

My first impression of the preface was similar with the impressions I have of most book prefaces (is that a word?!) that I read... in the moment, the preface is very important, but I literally forget *every word* of the preface once I turn to page one of the book. When I got to the Clock Tower scene at the end of New Moon and knew Bella was going to have to run, I remembered the preface and flipped back and read it again.

I love question #5. And I LOVE that Bella didn't fall. It's so symbolic that this is literally one of the most important moments of her life thus far - saving Edward, that is - and I love that, like us real humans, there is a time in your life when you literally know that you must NOT screw something up. And you can actually talk yourself into NOT screwing up, or not falling, in Bella's case. And that makes you able to do whatever it is that you normally can't do. (That, and a good dose of adrenaline, I guess!)

No clue if that makes sense, but that's my take.

Enjoying reading everyone's responses,

Beck =)

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

Once again it was the glorious begining to and awesome book.

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

Because the sun was shining so bright I assumed they where someplace other than Forks.

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

Obviously a Vampire.I wasn't expecting werewolves.

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

Yes it was obvious.The only precious thing to Bella more precious than her life is Edward.

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

Actually it is too intense a moment to such a dumb thing hapenned.Her falls are only funny when its a joke.

1) Your first impressions of this section. What were they?
It immediately got me back into Bella and Edward's story and had me ready to read through the whole book in one sitting. (Which is exactly what I did...)

2) What did you think brought Bella to this place? Where, exactly, did you think they were?
I honestly thought something Bella had (unintentionally) done had caused her to end up there.

3) Whom did you assume the 'something bloodthirsty' waiting 'in the wings' referred to?
Initally, I thought it referred to Edward. Regardless of the fact that he is a "vegetarian", I wasn't sure that something wasn't going to happen during the course of the book that would cause him to revert to his initial instincts.

4) Did you know right away that she was trying to save Edward?
I assumed she was trying to save Edward, or any of the other Cullens, but Edward seemed to be the logical conclusion.

5) Be honest, did you think Bella would fall?
Yes. As much as I love Bella, she is rather accident-prone.

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

I was trying to figure out who she was trying to save. I was scared and excited at the same time.

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

I really thought that she was having another dream. I had no idea where they were.

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

I thought maybe Victoria.

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

I had an idea it was him. But then I thought that maybe one of the other Cullens may have been in trouble.

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

I really thought she would, it is just something you would expect from her. I was really surprised she didn't.

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

I was just so excited to be reading the sequel and it made me definitely ready to read this book and find out what this all meant.


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

I had no idea where they were, but I was guessing it was Edward she was rushing to save.


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

I thought maybe it was one of the Cullens or perhaps part of James' clan or another vampire. I wasn't sure exactly.


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

I figured as much yes.


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

It's Bella, she's a walking accident waiting to happen! haha

1.) I thought that Edward had gotten himself into danger, but i had no idea, that he left (untill chapter 2)

2.) I thought she had to save Edward, which was an amusing thought, but also a little strange. It only spurred my already extreme interest.
3.) I thought it was some other kind of vampire. the volturri never crossed my mind. Now it seems obvious.

4.) yes, i assumed that is what was happening.

5.) no, she didn't have time, i knew she would make it.
