::: New Moon (Meyers)

Some questions:

1)  Why do all the shape-shifting native American kids have Bible names?  Rachel, Leah, Jacob, Seth, etc.  Very strange, no internal support for it.

2)  Could you beat me over the head a few more times with the Romeo and Juliet parallel?  'Cause I don't think I quite got it.

3)  Alice's fortune-telling skill is spot on every single time it needs to be and then -- surprise, surprise -- it's wrong at the perfect time to further the plot.  Color me surprised.

4)  Why is Edward so hot on the idea of getting married?  There's no internal rationale for him being so freaking conservative.   Even if he was born in 1902.  I mean, the guy eats mountain lions for pete's sake.  Then he changes his mind, then Bella changes HER mind.  Argh. Still waaaaaay too much angst from Eddie Baby.

5)  THE VOLTURI !!!  Seriously the best and scariest creatures encountered thus far and why isn't there more about them???  Freaky psychotic things.  (OK, actually they're the second scariest.  The first scariest is the human woman working for them who knows exactly what's going on and helps them anyway.  Think about that drain in the middle of the floor.  Brrrrr.)

And by the way, the Volturi are supposed to never eat the locals.  So this horde of people that come in as the Cullens are leaving are...what?  A lost tour bus?  Catered snacks?  Odd.  Though it certainly amped up the creep factor (see #5).  Dracula would have been proud of these guys.

Still waiting for the sex with the icy cold boyfriend.  Maybe Bella should practice with a popsicle.

My guess on the wolf names is that Meyers is Mormon, and she named them all after siblings/friends. Big Mormon family vs. big wolf clan? I know that she has a brother named Seth, and there were a couple other names connected to her family.

You are killing me with the popsicle idea. I nearly splurted.

Mormon, eh?
Well that explains a lot.
