Let's analyze Bella!?

[ Edited ]

lets analyze bella in all the four books!

 

her choices, changes, thoughts etc..

 

do you think that she changed too much in breaking dawn? did she made the right decisions in eclipse?

Yes Bella was horrible to Edward with the way she kissed Jacob. Mostly it's Jacob's fault but still. She was  engaged! She shouldn't have been kissing other people! I haven't read Breaking Dawn yet so don't give away anything!

Re: Let's analyze Bella!?

yea i like her sometimes, like on twilight but then in eclipse she played too much with both of them, and in bd spoiler ahead she was still leading jake on, but well  it was really funny when she got mad at jacob for imprinting on renesmee, but isnt that what she wanted???, for jacob to find his other half?? it was funny cause i thought she was jeaulous , why was she so mad cause it was her baby?

Re: Let's analyze Bella!?

yeah probably.. but i still think that she still has strong feelings for jacob... she was really annoying with her indesision.

 what really happend when jacob said he would kill himself in the fight? did they just kiss or was something more then that?

Re: Let's analyze Bella!?

I think that she definitely isn't the odd girl that she was in Twilight. She has more confidence and more self esteem. She is definitely more mature in the later books. and I also despised her when she kissed Jacob.

Re: Let's analyze Bella!?

yeah she matured a lot. and also she was strange in her honeymoon, it was kind of weird(but i dont mind what happened) she was not her self after what happened i dont know if it was because of the pregnancy, but she was weird. she could only think about doing "stuff".

 

and when she became a vampire she changed completely. i liked her better when she changed. more confident and more strong not so dependent

Re: Let's analyze Bella!?

I think she relies to much on the men on her life. She is not very independent. Haven't you noticed if she isn't with either Edward or Jacob she just sits around? It is kind of pathetic, even if she loves him.

Re: Let's analyze Bella!?

I personally don't really care for her. In the book I loved her, but ever since I saw her brought to life in the movies she just seems really depressed and sorry for herself. She's also kind of an itch! Anyway I just don't really like her on the big screen, but that could just be Kristin Stewart's bad acting skills.

personally I find her kinda annoying. I mean she was ok when I was just reading the books and then when the movies came out I started to hate her. But that's my opinion.

Re: Let's analyze Bella!?

Bella did get really annoying at the end of the series.....

In Twilight was my favorite character

in New Moon I got her sadness

In Eclipse she started getting annoying.....

 

I think there should have only been 3 books...The end of Eclipse would have been a perfect palce to end the series.....

Re: Let's analyze Bella!?

I thought that Bella was alright.  But she made some choices that I wouldn't have made.  I'm not sure if I would've kissed Jacob or not, I mean he was threatening to kill himself.  But she's also pretty clingy, I mean I miss my boyfriend a lotttttt when I go visit my dad, but I don't wallow in depression, granted I know I'll get to see him again.  But I don't know.  She's ok.  I would've had a hard time letting go of Jacob if I loved him like a brother as well.  But I don't know.

Re: Let's analyze Bella!?

I liked her better in the movies. In the books she was all "OH MY GOD MY LIFE SUCKS because 4 guys asked me to a dance! My life is so hard! I had to make up a whole outing to Seattle! My life sucks!" At least in the movies, it wasn't like that.

Re: Let's analyze Bella!?

Personally I liked Bella at the begining of Twilight. New Moon I felt sorry for her and started declining my intrest on her because she was just sooo depressed, I mean come on you should be at least independant enought to get over a bad break up. Eclipse is my favorate book I'm not sure why but all I do know is that in this book I started to despise the bratty way she acted always insisting that she get turned into a vamp and Edward have sex with her without even considering Edwards side of the demands and when Edward wanted her to marry him she blew up and refused only thinkin about her rep that she got married right out of highschool. Alot of people get married out of highschool because they love each other that much and don't care what othr people think. I know that if I loved someone that much then I would marry him and not take a second guess unlike her and her inner imagination. *sigh*. Breaking Dawn is probally my least favorate because of so much Jacob who I'm not a really big fan of and also because of the whole gross birth scene * shudder*. These are my thoughts you can love them or hate them but ya can't get rid of me.
