1. Were you surprised at how undiscouraged Jacob remained, despite Bella's assertions that she loves only Edward?

A: nah, he's a stubbron teenager. werent we all like that?

2. How did you feel about the kiss? Were you shocked like Bella, or did you see it coming?

A: def saw it coming. but think he should have asked first instead of just going ahead and doing it.

3. Everyone reacted so differently to the kiss. What did you think about Bella's reaction? Jacob's? What about Charlie's? And how did you think Edward was going to react?

A: bella's reaction was great!! Jacob should ahve at least been a little disgruntled, esp after getting hit, but i suppose he was on cloud 9 at the time. Charlie was awesome, bearing in mind that he dosent really like edward at that moment his reaction was spot on. Edward was the best though. i'm sure one word from bella and charlie not being there would have ended up in a fight but i think him being calm was more frightning.

4. Did you feel horror at the news of Jasper and Emmett's bet, as Bella did?

A: not really. it sounds just like what the two of them would get up to. i just want to know what they get if they win

5. As you read the end of the chapter, what did you think had Bella particularly concerned when she mused, "Was there a human experience I was not willing to give up?"

A: not sure i knew what it was at the time, sounded more like a random thought. but it does become obvious after a bit :)

I sure know when to join a thread. :wink: Still, it's better late than never.

1. Were you surprised at how undiscouraged Jacob remained, despite Bella's assertions that she loves only Edward?

No. This is because Jacob always seemed so persistent and sure that one day Edward was going to scare or hurt Bella away from him, so Jacob feels he still has a chance. Also, who wouldn't fight for the love of someone they are madly and desperately in love with?

2. How did you feel about the kiss? Were you shocked like Bella, or did you see it coming?

I was extremely shocked. This is where I really began to dislike Jacob because he went to far this time. You don't just kiss a girl because you want to. ugh... boys...

3. Everyone reacted so differently to the kiss. What did you think about Bella's reaction? Jacob's? What about Charlie's? And how did you think Edward was going to react?

I really wished she could've injured Jacob. He would have deserved it. I personally think Jacob deserved the shock that Bella didn't want him kissing her... I wanted to think Edward would be furious and angry, but he just isn't like that. He is always bent on hiding his emotions and wanting Bella to be happy.

4. Did you feel horror at the news of Jasper and Emmett's bet, as Bella did?

No, not really.

5. As you read the end of the chapter, what did you think had Bella particularly concerned when she mused, "Was there a human experience I was not willing to give up?"

I hadn't really thought about this. I guess it had to do with her friendship with Jacob.

1 i wan't suprised at all... jacob knew she love Edward all along. He was just throwing it out there that he DID love her and that he knew that SHE LOVED HIM even if she didn't know it!

2.I wanted Jacob to kiss her so bad!!! I was a bit suprised but not much cause i knew it would come eventually... I'm still so happy it happened!

3.I think Bella had a right to punch Jacob but i wish she would have just kissed him back and liked it! Jacob's happiness made me happy! I love Jacob the character! he's such a sweetheart! Charlie's reaction made me laugh! haha He wanted it just as much as Jake and i did! Edward did act how i thought he would... i mean to the broken hand is a different story... We all know Edward wouldn't hurt Jacob because Bella Love jake too much...

4.i thought no horror...

5.Jacob's kiss i think...

sorry but i totally disagree! as much as i do agree on the boys kissing girls because they want to... yea thats wrong but i was so glad Jacob kissed Bella because It was one step closer to her realizing she loved him... i mean i wish the kiss in the woods would have been the first because she realized it and totally fell in love with him... :) then again... you might be an Edward fan and i'm a Jacob fan so we can agree to disagree! :)

1. Were you surprised at how undiscouraged Jacob remained, despite Bella's assertions that she loves only Edward?
I wasn't surprised at how persistent he was. I mean, the guy just wouldn't take no for an answer. I stayed quite annoyed with him throughout the book.

2. How did you feel about the kiss? Were you shocked like Bella, or did you see it coming?
I was so happy when Bella punched Jacob. I'm sorry it hurt her hand, but it's the thought that counts haha. It was so out of line for him to do that :!: :!: I can't say I saw it coming at that moment, but I figured it would happen eventually.

3. Everyone reacted so differently to the kiss. What did you think about Bella's reaction? Jacob's? What about Charlie's? And how did you think Edward was going to react? I was livid with Jacob, upset and annoyed with Charlie's reaction, proud of Bella (even if she did get hurt), and I wanted Edward to knock the dog out....but I knew better. He reacted just the way I expected him to.

4. Did you feel horror at the news of Jasper and Emmett's bet, as Bella did?
I don't remember actually....

1. Were you surprised at how undiscouraged Jacob remained, despite Bella's assertions that she loves only Edward?

I was a little surprised that Jacob was so undiscouraged. But he is 16 and I remember what boys were like at that age. Their confidence is through the roof (most of them anyway).

2. How did you feel about the kiss? Were you shocked like Bella, or did you see it coming?

I saw it coming because Jake has told her he loved her. They also do things that I don't do with my closest male friend (holding hands, touching her/his face, etc.). I had a feeling that it was only a matter of time. I get that Jake is only 16 but he should have respected the fact that Bella loves Edward and is in a relationship with him. I have a feeling this isn't the last we have seen of this.

3. Everyone reacted so differently to the kiss. What did you think about Bella's reaction? Jacob's? What about Charlie's? And how did you think Edward was going to react?

I loved Bella's reaction to the kiss. I only wish that she didn't break her hand. I thought Jake would start to feel bad about what he did but I wasn't surprised when he didn't. It was definitely a case of 16 year-old boy confidence. Charlie's reaction annoyed me. I get that he doesn't like Edward. I also get that he likes Jake. I didn't like that he didn't try to see this from Bella's point of view. He should respect that his daughter made a choice and stand behind her with this. He was practically encouraging Jake to do it again. I thought Edward's reaction was great. It was a great way to interpret the "stay away from my girlfriend" thing.

4. Did you feel horror at the news of Jasper and Emmett's bet, as Bella did?

I actually didn't feel any horror. I thought it was kind of funny.

5. As you read the end of the chapter, what did you think had Bella particularly concerned when she mused, "Was there a human experience I was not willing to give up?"

I thought the human experience that she was not willing to give up was having sex with Edward. She has wondered a few times what she will be like when she changes and when I read those lines it was the first thing that came to my mind.

1. Were you surprised at how undiscouraged Jacob remained, despite Bella's assertions that she loves only Edward?
I was surprised. I thought that he respected Bella more than he did.

2. How did you feel about the kiss? Were you shocked like Bella, or did you see it coming?
I was very shocked by the kiss. I thought Jacob was planning something, but I was giving him the benefit of the doubt. I loved Bella punching Jacob though. It made me smile 

3. Everyone reacted so differently to the kiss. What did you think about Bella's reaction? Jacob's? What about Charlie's? And how did you think Edward was going to react?
I think Bella's reaction was great. Jacob should not have forced himself on Bella like he did. I loved seeing her get all defensive and punching him, it was one of those classic moments where she shows how much gumption she has. I think that Jacob's reaction was typical'it's what I expected. He has so much sock about him that he didn't care what it would make Bella feel like. He just wanted to kiss him and hope that it would change her mind. Charlie's reaction made me a little mad at first. Why would he congratulate Jacob? Once he left and Charlie went into that father mode telling her that maybe he should have taught her how to punch'that seemed like a better reaction. Edward's reaction was what I expected it to be. He was angry and mad, but I liked the fact that he found it a little humorous.

4. Did you feel horror at the news of Jasper and Emmett's bet, as Bella did?
In a way I felt bad that they didn't trust Bella's abilities to keep her anger in check. But it was a humorous at the same time. I think it was a good wake up call to Bella that things weren't going to be perfect all at once.

5. As you read the end of the chapter, what did you think had Bella particularly concerned when she mused, "Was there a human experience I was not willing to give up?"
I was thinking maybe having kids.

I personally like Edward better, but don't freak, I'm not a person to go all fangirl with it. :roll:

It took me awhile to think about if do or do not like Jacob, but I honestly don't detest him, even though it might sound like that in my answers. He was there for Bella when she really needed a friend and he really does love her. I actually have to pity him because he knows now that Bella loves him, but she loves Edward more.

Yea its gotta be tough for him to live with... why else would he run away? Edward fans don't bother me at all... its the fans that are all like " i love edward and hate jacob" and when you ask them why they say " I dont' know i just like edward better" or "because Edward is perfect" I just drives me nuts ... i mean even the answer "Jacob Annoys me with how forward he is" that would be fine for me but just choosing edward because he comes off perfect buggs me....i'll tell you why too... its because Edward is not perfect people are blinded by his so called "beauty" I mean i a BIG jacob fan and i see falts in Jacob...I mean you have to have a reason for likeing someone so much don't you think?
