1. What did you think was wrong with Jacob? Were you as suspicious as Bella about his illness?
Having read a spoiler ahead of time, I already knew what was happening to Jake. There was the possibility that he could actually be suffering from the stomach flu, but like Bella I knew it had to be something more, hence the transformation.
2. When Laurent appeared out of the trees did you also think like Bella, that it was Edward?
I was positive it wasn't Edward, but I had the fleeting notion that it might be one of the Cullens. I briefly thought it was James reincarnated :lol:. But I soon realized it was Laurent right before Bella did.
3. When the wolves came out of the forest what were your thoughts? When one of them looked at Bella, did you suspect it was Jacob or that Edward was involved somehow?
I knew they were werewolves (as I had already come to that conclusion about Jacob), so I knew Bella's fear of them attacking her was natural but unlikely to happen. She mentioned the wolf that looked at her was a russet brown color, and she had previously described Jake's skin as that color, so it seemed likely that wolf would be Jacob. As for Edward's involvement in the whole scene, I knew he was present only as the voice in Bella's head, and not with the werewolves at all.
4. At this point in the story did you already suspect that Jacob was a werewolf?
Yep
5. Did you think that now that Victoria was hunting Bella that Edward and the Cullen's would come back?
I didn't think the Cullens would return as there was really no way they would find out about it, unless Alice had a vision. It was a possibility, but I didn't think there was a very good chance.

1. What did you think was wrong with Jacob? Were you as suspicious as Bella about his illness?
I knew that that illness wasn't real, because Jacob was healthy. I also was as Bella, suspicious.

2. When Laurent appeared out of the trees did you also think like Bella, that it was Edward?
At first, I thought it was Edward or someone of the Cullens, because in the preface, you know that Bella will be with Alice in some part of the book, so I also thought it might be Alice.

3. When the wolves came out of the forest what were your thoughts? When one of them looked at Bella, did you suspect it was Jacob or that Edward was involved somehow?
I knew that those werewolves were not usual wolves. And when Jake looked at Bella... well, I thought about him.

4. At this point in the story did you already suspect that Jacob was a werewolf?
More or less.

5. Did you think that now that Victoria was hunting Bella that Edward and the Cullen's would come back?
With my first thought of the vampire being Alice, yes. But then, I returned to think about it, and not.

1. What did you think was wrong with Jacob? Were you as suspicious as Bella about his illness?

Yes, I felt exactly the same way as Bella. But I realized before her what was wrong with Jake.

2. When Laurent appeared out of the trees did you also think like Bella, that it was Edward?

No. Actually, I thought it was going to be Alice but Alice wouldn't know where the meadow was, would she? Sp then I was all, OH!!!! And it was Laurent.

3. When the wolves came out of the forest what were your thoughts? When one of them looked at Bella, did you suspect it was Jacob or that Edward was involved somehow?

I knew that wolf was Jacob. I'm not sure how, but it just seemed sooo Jacob-y.

4. At this point in the story did you already suspect that Jacob was a werewolf?

Yes. I had no doubt about it.

5. Did you think that now that Victoria was hunting Bella that Edward and the Cullen's would come back?

Er, sort of. But I wasn't sure. And I didn't think Edward would come. Maybe Alice and Emmett, or Carlisle.

1. What did you think was wrong with Jacob? Were you as suspicious as Bella about his illness?
I was worried something was wrong after the movie...but after like the third time billy dodged her questions on the phone, I knew Jake had turned into a werewolf...it just had to be!

2. When Laurent appeared out of the trees did you also think like Bella, that it was Edward?
YES!!!! I was so upset!!!!! At first I thought: "No, it can't be...too much of a coincidence!" And then the next second, my heart was beating out of my chest because I just KNEW Edward had come back for her and he loved her, and couldn't stay away, and then Laurent stepped into view.....yah, it pretty much ruined the moment and my day! I knew he would try to kill her as soon as she saw that it was him....I was utterly dissapointed.

3. When the wolves came out of the forest what were your thoughts? When one of them looked at Bella, did you suspect it was Jacob or that Edward was involved somehow?
I honestly knew the one who looked at Bella was Jake. Just from the way Stephenie described his eyes as they looked at her...that kind of made up for the earlier dissapointment.

4. At this point in the story did you already suspect that Jacob was a werewolf?
Sure did!

5. Did you think that now that Victoria was hunting Bella that Edward and the Cullen's would come back?
I kind of already knew that he would come back, I mean, who didn't?!? But I just didn't know when. I had hoped that they would come back when Victoria came, but I just had no idea!

Post by edward is luv »

1. What did you think was wrong with Jacob? Were you as suspicious as Bella about his illness?

yeah..for some reason as soon as she ran into the wolves and i realized there were 5 people in the gang and 5 wolves then i autimatically new that jacob was the werewolf..

2. When Laurent appeared out of the trees did you also think like Bella, that it was Edward?

yes!!! it would have been so symbolic for them to meet in the meadow again... :( it was a big let down.

3. When the wolves came out of the forest what were your thoughts? When one of them looked at Bella, did you suspect it was Jacob or that Edward was involved somehow?

i realized right away that they weren't after bella. no..i knew that edward wouldn't do interupt bella's life again. I'M SO HAPPY THAT THEY'RE BACK TOGETHER THOUGH!

4. At this point in the story did you already suspect that Jacob was a werewolf?

mhm

5. Did you think that now that Victoria was hunting Bella that Edward and the Cullen's would come back?

1. What did you think was wrong with Jacob? Were you as suspicious as Bella about his illness?

When I read this, I recalled what I read in Twilight when he was telling Bella the story about their tribe and assumed that he was a werewolf. So I wasn't as suspicious as Bella because I already figured it out.

2. When Laurent appeared out of the trees did you also think like Bella, that it was Edward?

I was HOPING it would be Edward because that was their special place. But then it turned out to be Laurent.. :(

3. When the wolves came out of the forest what were your thoughts? When one of them looked at Bella, did you suspect it was Jacob or that Edward was involved somehow?

The way Bella described him made me instantly think of Jacob. And I kind of knew it was him already..

4. At this point in the story did you already suspect that Jacob was a werewolf?

Yes.. I started suspecting that when he got sick..

5. Did you think that now that Victoria was hunting Bella that Edward and the Cullen's would come back?

Well I was hoping they, or at least Edward or Alice, would sense that she was in danger and try to protect her.

These questions were prepared by ECABS.

1. What did you think was wrong with Jacob? Were you as suspicious as Bella about his illness?

I had always thought there was something...odd about Jacob's illness. I can't exactly remember my orginial thoughts, seeing as I read it the first day it came out and that was a long time ago.

2. When Laurent appeared out of the trees did you also think like Bella, that it was Edward?

Holy crap, no. Sadly. :[
I had given up on Edward coming back.

3. When the wolves came out of the forest what were your thoughts? When one of them looked at Bella, did you suspect it was Jacob or that Edward was involved somehow?

My brain brought up an image from the first book of Bella's dream. I knew it was Jacob, and was quite proud of myself when I read later on that it was. :]
Edward involved? No. As said before, I had given up on Edward. (How sad...I smack myself over that, now.)

4. At this point in the story did you already suspect that Jacob was a werewolf?

I had a feeling he was. I mean...big bears? C'mon. This is a vampire book. Gotta have the werewolves.

5. Did you think that now that Victoria was hunting Bella that Edward and the Cullen's would come back?

I certainly hoped so! I felt that now that Bella was in trouble, Alice would have seen SOMETHING. And Edward would have come back to protect her. But I don't think Edward would have made himself known to Bella when he came back.
Sadly, he didn't come back.
Dear God,
Please send me an Edward.
:]
Amen.

1. What did you think was wrong with Jacob? Were you as suspicious as Bella about his illness?
I thought something was up when he didn't call her back.

2. When Laurent appeared out of the trees did you also think like Bella, that it was Edward?
Well, to be honest, I had skipped ahead to check the page when a Cullen came back, so I knew it wasn't him. :lol:

3. When the wolves came out of the forest what were your thoughts? When one of them looked at Bella, did you suspect it was Jacob or that Edward was involved somehow?
I was just surprised. The only thing that reminded me of a human were the eyes.

4. At this point in the story did you already suspect that Jacob was a werewolf?
Not really, but once the wolves were able to chase Laurent away, I definitely thought something was up with them.

5. Did you think that now that Victoria was hunting Bella that Edward and the Cullen's would come back?
Once again, I had skipped ahead, so I already knew they wouldn't. :roll:

1. What did you think was wrong with Jacob? Were you as suspicious as Bella about his illness?

I'd had on and off vibes about werewolves throughout the book--just a hunch--but ironically enough I so didn't suspect that here. I WAS suspicious when he didn't call, though. As if Jacob would pass on an opportunity to talk to Bella. Psht.

2. When Laurent appeared out of the trees did you also think like Bella, that it was Edward?

No. Bella attracts bad luck much more often than good luck, and this is just another example.

3. When the wolves came out of the forest what were your thoughts? When one of them looked at Bella, did you suspect it was Jacob or that Edward was involved somehow?

I was surprised to find that they weren't bears. It didn't take me long to figure out that it was Jacob. All the signs were there. I'm actually surprised it took Bella so long.

4. At this point in the story did you already suspect that Jacob was a werewolf?

Yep.

5. Did you think that now that Victoria was hunting Bella that Edward and the Cullens would come back?

I didn't think that they would come back because of Victoria. I hoped, sure, but I wasn't holding my breath.
