Re: Preface

Post by Kissa »

1) Your first impressions of this section. What were they?
I think my initial reaction was something like.. "Why the heck does she have to put so much drama into the preface? Ahhh!"

2) What did you think brought Bella to this place? Where, exactly, did you think they were?
I figured it had to be Alice. I had no clue why, but it seemed the most reasonable at the time.
I had no idea what so ever where they could be. I don't think the word "clock-tower" really registered in my brain. I was just thinking of it as a regular clock at first, which was tolling out the hour. :lol:

3) Whom did you assume the 'something bloodthirsty' waiting 'in the wings' referred to?
Well, vampires of course!

4) Did you know right away that she was trying to save Edward?
No, I didn't. I actually had to read it twice, 'cause I was so excited that I didn't comprehend anything the first time. The second time, after thinking for a few seconds, I came to the conclusion that there were no other option.

5) Be honest, did you think Bella would fall?
Honestly? Yes. And if not to the ground, she would definitely fall and catch herself mid-air. I thought it was unavoidable!

1) Your first impressions of this section. What were they?
I was kind of like where does this lead...oohh whats going to happen???

2) What did you think brought Bella to this place? Where, exactly, did you think they were?
I thought that they were in California for some reason i have no idea.

3) Whom did you assume the 'something bloodthirsty' waiting 'in the wings' referred to?
I thought it might be victoria or laurent, or some new enemy.

4) Did you know right away that she was trying to save Edward?
heck no, i thought that her and alice were in danger though. and they might be killed.

5) Be honest, did you think Bella would fall?
no, because i was like oh oh she has to do this, she can do it, everything HAS to turn out ok.
Hmpt!

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

I got really excited straight away and couldn't wait to go on reading. And of course I was worried immediately about the danger that is portrayed in this section.

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


I had no idea where they were. It was obvious that this was not Forks, though.


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

I thought immediately about some evil vampires when I read that. When I went on reading the first chapter, I connected them to the Volturi.

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


Yes, it seemed absolutely obvious. Why else would she feel that she didn't have the desire to live any longer if her mission fails? The only one she cares about more than she does about her own life is Edward, so that was the only thing that made sense to me.



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

I kind of feared that she would but still hoped she would not.

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

Well I have no clue what is going on so I don't think much of prefaces. I just read them and then begin the story.

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

Not sure...obviously something bad happened or was going to happen.

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

Vampires, obviously.


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

No. Like I said I don't think much of prefaces. I'm just sort of blank.


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

No. Didn't think of it.

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

I knew after reading Twilight that the preface's showed what happened later in the book, but I didn't quite get this.

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

I had no clue what brought Bella there, I just sort of knew Edward was there, but I felt like she was in London*Clock Tower*

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

I actully thought it was Edward, and that he was out to kill Bella.

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

No, like I said above I thought Edward was going to kill her

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

Nope. :)

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

I thought it may have been a dream. I just needed to know more!


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

I was sure that if it wasn't a dream, Edward had definetly brought her to this place. I had no clue where I thought they were, I'm pretty sure I thought it was somewhere in a foreign country.


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

Well, obviously I knew it was vampires. I thought oh no Bella got herself into trouble with another vampire again.

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

I knew she must've been trying to save Edward. I was just confused on how she was going to accomplish that being an uber-clumsy human.

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

I did think Bella would fall. I had no faith in her ability to run without killing herself on a crack in the ground.
