1. The chapter starts with Bella talking describing the sounds she hears because she is in too much pain to open her eyes. Were you able to put together exactly what happened, or did you have moments when you wondered what took place?
Yes, I understood what was going on. I was quite shocked when he said that James had bit her.

2. Did you think Edward would be changing Bella into a vampire because it was a life and death situation?
That part flip flopped with every line. I was just like:
He's got no choice she's going to die if he doesn't now.
Oh my gosh! He bit her, now there's nothing they can do.
He can suck it out?! That can't work.
AAAAarrrg! :x :shock:
:roll:
LOL

I got most of it I think, the sound that she was hearing pretty much explained what was happening. I assumed that the loud keening and snapping noises were the others ripping apart James and I knew that Edward and Carlisle were trying to save her. I think that was a very dark moment, the way she describes how Edward was pleading and begging. It made me cry, it was such a sad moment.

2. Did you think Edward would be changing Bella into a vampire because it was a life and death situation?
No I didn't think he would change his mind on that, and when she began screaming that her hand was on fire I knew exactly what that meant and I think that Edward saving her from that fate was a sure sign that even if, in the future, Bella was to become one of them, it would be on her terms, and it would be her decision.

I pretty much knew what was going on. I was confused at first when it talked about snapping and growling sounds but soon after I realized it was James and others. I can usually tell what's happening before Bella realizes it herself, haha.

2. Did you think Edward would be changing Bella into a vampire because it was a life and death situation?

I thought that he was debating it, but if he had any other kind of option he'd jump on that. I knew that once Carlisle mentioned sucking the venom out he'd do that rather than risk her soul.

I was pretty much able to put together exactly what happened. Stephenie did a pretty good job of describing what was going on while she was slowly becoming more unconscious and closing her eyes. I realized that all the snapping and sounds going on was James being ripped apart and that was all pretty intense. I was also at the edge of my seat when Bella started describing the pain as a fire that wouldn't go out and I wondered what the actual bite mark looked like.

2. Did you think Edward would be changing Bella into a vampire because it was a life and death situation?

I didn't think Edward was going to change Bella into a vampire because it was a life and death situation. I knew that that would be horrible to end the book with Bella changed as a vampire. I mean, of course we want her too, but that would also kind of indicate the end of the saga or a HUGE change. It would be too much of a different Bella in my opinion. I think that I sort of intuitively knew that he would save her, though not by changing her. It just couldn't happen yet!

I had a feeling that James had attacked her , but I was really surprised that she was still alive , I thought he really was going to kill her

2. Did you think Edward would be changing Bella into a vampire because it was a life and death situation?

Yeah I did , I thought that it was the moment where she was finally going to become a vampire

I thought Stephenie did a wonderful job on this chapter, ecpecially in the beginnning. I could feel the ecact same feeling bella was at the time. Ha, this is a little embarassing now, but i actually cried when Edward found her, I thought she was dead for a second there. :oops:

The first few lines of the chaper I was thinking to myself "oh no..this won't end well".

2. Did you think Edward would be changing Bella into a vampire because it was a life and death situation?

No, he would not have changed her. Remember, he rather her grow old and die then make him a monster such as he is (or what he thinks he is)

Only my blood speaks to you in my veins,
And there is such confusion in my powers.

I understood what was happening right away. I was definitely afraid she was going to die, but then let out a huge sigh of relief when she heard the "angel".

2. Did you think Edward would be changing Bella into a vampire because it was a life and death situation?

No, i didn't believe she would be changed. but this chapter is my favorite of the book because of the fact that he didn't change her, and overcame his desire for her blood for his love for her.
"He's like a drug for you, Bella." His voice was still gentle, not at all critical. "I see that you can't live without him now. It's too late. But I would have been healthier for you. Not a drug; I would have been the air, the sun."
The corner of my mouth turned up in a wistful halfsmile. "I used to think of you that way, you know. Like the sun. My personal sun. You balanced out the clouds nicely for me." He sighed. "The clouds I can handle. But I can't fight with an eclipse."
