Foreshadowing

Post by Be My Escape »

Stephenie is very good at foreshadowing. What foreshadowing is present in the first chapter and preface of Breaking Dawn?

i REALLY, REALLY think SM is foreshadowing that something horrible will happen in BD because of the "indestructible car." Edward's to nice to ruin Bella's truck without a reason and i know the car wouldn't protect her forever, but if she locked the doors it might protect her long enough for Alice to see something and for Edward- and whatever backup he needs- to come save her. He also wouldn't want to show how rich they really are by buying a car that's not yet available in the US for bella to drive as a everyday car without a good reason. i find it highly unlikely that this is just a joke

I'm "Switzerland" in the whole whose better for bella, Jake or Edward. I think they'll both be a good match for her, but i do believe in the end she'll marry Edward.

I think that Jake still being gone is foreshadowing the loss of Bella's comfort zone for a big part of the book. I'm not saying that her comfort relys only on Jacob but the fact that he used to be. Also I think that the extra precautions that Edward seems to be taking (more than usual) has me thinking that Alice saw something that he isn't telling Bella. Sort of like in Eclipse when he decides they should go to Florida.
Here, there, and everywhere...that's where you'll find me.

EXACTLY! thank you someone finally agrees with me!

i also think SM could be using Seth and Edward's friendship to show that maybe the gap between the cullens and the werewolves maybe closing- slowly but surly. but i think it'll only last till bella gets turned into a vamp because that's breaking the treaty- unless they get rid of it :D

I said this on another thread...and it has to do with the epilogue of Eclipse..but I think that having Jacob's POV as the epilogue foreshadows having another character's POV somewhere in BD.

i don't know... maybe a small part- like when Bella's being changed and in pain have edward's pov or a few chapters on how jacob's doing? but to much would be to confusing and ruin the point of SM writing the books in other people's povs

i think there's going to be Bella/Leah conflict, because of when Seth was talking to Bella on the phone, ya know? And he got off the phone almost as soon as Leah returned? I'm thinking that Leah is feeling very protective of Jacob because she understands what he's going through, and that's going to create tension between her and Bella.

I agree, there has to be something between them. More than just him trying to hide the fact he is talking to Bella since they all know anyway. I think what happened with Jacob is part of it, but there is also the possibility that she feels the same way about the Cullens that Sam does. I THINK that if the Cullens never came to Forks he wouldn't imprint right? it happens after you start phasing? I really need to check that haha. So she could be thinking that if they never came, Sam never would have left her.

i defintly think there will be a Bella/ Leah conflict just because leah probably feels like bella choose the vamps over the werewolves. and probably blames the vamps for sam leaving her
