I thought that symbolism was really strong throughout – especially up in the tent during the snowstorm. And yes, I thought that it was a clear comparison between Bella's two suitors – one really warm and one, well, dead. And taking that one step further, the two paths that Bella has to choose from – one a path of lie and the other of living death.
At first, I thought Edward was "cold" inside as well but in this novel, Meyer really brought out the overwhelming power and intensity of his love for Bella and, because of that, a kind of warmth and humanity. Do you agree?

What? Are you saying Bella's cool or that she's cold as in mean?

I think that might be one of her "powers" if she were to become a vampire. She's good at closing her mind and thinking about things rationally--or just differently. I bet she'll be immune (or close to it) many vampire tricks.

and later- she was really cool about herself dying as long as her mom would be ok.
and the way she reacted to Edward leaving- she was more stone cold than all angry and fiery...

BTW - Bella and Edward having a baby would give new meaning to the term "new born," no? ;o)

I probably need to re-read the book -- I think my initial read was more of an inhalation not a thorough reading. I'm sure you all understand how that goes. Unfortunately I don't get a lot of time to do that I'm constantly needing to read more YA books for my booktalks and committee work. I never seem to get back to books I really want to savor.
