1. Were you surprised by how spiritual Carlisle is?
Not really. His father was a preacher, and I'm sure that had a major influence on Carlisle when he was human. I find it only natural that an aspect like that somewhat carry over with him. I think it also adds to his personality, shows that he just wants something more, why he's so dedicated to continuously helping people, not just saving them from "who/what" he is.

2. What did you think about the information revealed about Edward's mother?
It was helpful to understand why Carlisle finally changed someone else. He'd gone hundreds of years without a companion, and then all of the sudden began making them within decades. It was powerful to hear the reasoning behind them.

3. When the kiss happened, did you have any ideas about what was to come?
No idea. Heartbreaking.

1. Were you surprised by how spiritual Carlilse is?

No. I figured that, because they made the decision to save human lives, even when it goes against their nature, they must have some morals and values in their lives. It actually made sense to me.

2. What did you think about the information revealed about Edward's mother?

I still don't understand it. I mean, I understand why Elizabeth would want Carlisle to save Edward, but I would be really curious to understand how she knew that Carlisle had that ability...that others don't have.

3. When the kiss happened, did you have any ideas about what was to come?

Not really. I could feel tension building and I thought that something of importance was going to occur, but I didn't expect Edward to leave. Especially not the way he did.

1. Were you surprised by how spiritual Carlilse is?
No. That's Carlisle. He always seemed that way.

2. What did you think about the information revealed about Edward's mother?
Cool! And weird...how she seemed to know Carlisle was a vampire and that he really could save Edward.

3. When the kiss happened, did you have any ideas about what was to come?
Well, I knew Edward was going to leave (guilty of reading the synopsis) but I didn't know it was going to be heartbreaking, so I was thrown off track and got completely scared.

1. Were you surprised by how spiritual Carlilse is?
Not at all. I figured Carlisle must be somewhat spirtual.. I figured he wouldn't not drink human blood just because he preferred the "other kind of meat" haha. I understand he's a very deep person, and probably had reasons and motives behind his actions that were deeper than what we realized.

2. What did you think about the information revealed about Edward's mother?
I felt sorry for Edward.. but I'm also curious about how much Edward's mother knew about Carlisle--and if she DID realize that he was a vampire, why she'd want her son to have the same fate. As well as, how did Edward's mother figure out that Carlisle's a vampire?

3. When the kiss happened, did you have any ideas about what was to come?
I knew it couldn't be good. And I was coooorrect-o.

"....So I didn't agree with my father's particular brand of faith. But never, in the nearly four hundred years now since I was born, have I ever seen anything to make me doubt whether God exists in some form or the other. Not even the reflection in the mirror."
That is, BY FAR, one of my most favourite lines in the book.




That's a GREAT line! :D

1. Were you surprised by how spiritual Carlilse is?

Not at all surprised by how spritual and broad-mindedness he is. This insight of him just made me respect him even more, Carlisle is truly a strong guy( in every sense of the word).


2. What did you think about the information revealed about Edward's mother?

From the information revealed about Edward's mother , I was able to identify where Edward got his strong must-care-protect-anyway-possible nature from, it also made me respect her, oh the courage she held to look after her dying son even when she was dying herself.


3. When the kiss happened, did you have any ideas about what was to come?

When I read that the first time I read the book , my heart did summersaults while my stomache twist and droped to the ground along with the intruder tears that oozed out dripping of my cheeks ,wetting the page. So I would have say thess few lines -which did have resmbles to the last time Edward and Bella had to part- did foreshadow that great distress was to be endured. But never did I expected the degree of the the distress

1. Were you surprised by how spiritual Carlilse is?
Not really; I'd always seen him that way.

2. What did you think about the information revealed about Edward's mother?
She seemed like the kind of mother who would do anything for her son, even if it killed her. It left me with a very sad feeling in the pit of my stomach that she died the way she did.

3. When the kiss happened, did you have any ideas about what was to come?
I was just kind of like, "Hmm... good sign or bad sign?" I wasn't really sure what to make of it at first.

1. Were you surprised by how spiritual Carlilse is?

No not exactly. I figured Carlisle would be a bit spiritual. He seems like the most calm and composed one.

2. What did you think about the information revealed about Edward's mother?

I was completely obsorbed. I was really curious about what his mother was like and how his life may have been when he was actually 17 years old. Everytime I read that part I can't help but be sucked in :D


3. When the kiss happened, did you have any ideas about what was to come?

When the kiss happened I had a feeling something BAD was on its way...Edward never kisses her that way, it should have been an easy enough idea of what could and DID happen :/
