I just finished reading Twilight, (for ages 12 and up) the first book in the vampire series from Stephenie Meyer, and wow! What a read! I know the whole world has been talking about Bella and Edward for a while now, but considering I didn’t catch on to Harry Potter until Book 4 was released, it’s no surprise that I’m just hopping on the Twilight train now. Am I glad I did!
The voice of the Bella is clear and insightful and had me hooked from the beginning. But since we readers are always inside her head, I want to know more about Edward, the vegetarian vampire who falls in love with her and saves her life (more than once!).
If I could ask Edward three questions, here’s what they would be:
- You were turned into a vampire almost 100 years ago. What do you remember about your human life, and do you miss it?
- Consider what would have happened to you if you had lived as a human instead of becoming a vampire. What would you have wanted to be, do, or see in your life?
- As a vampire, you have a lot of cool abilities that humans don’t. What’s your favorite “vampire talent”?
Most of you probably know much more about the saga of Bella and Edward than I do, so how do YOU think Edward would answer these questions? And what would you like to ask him?
