Amazon Exclusive: Defining Eclipse Challenge
Brian Leaf, the author of Defining Eclipse
, put together this quiz for Amazon customers to test their vocabulary skills and their knowledge of Eclipse
. Answer the following five questions, and then check your score with the answer key. 1. Eclipse
Vocab Challenge #1: Here is a line from Eclipse
, the third book in the Twilight
saga, "I'd had plenty of time to think through the ramifications
of Jasper and Emmett's bet ... " What are Jasper and Emmett betting about, and what does "ramifications" mean? 2. Eclipse
Vocab Challenge #2: "They're all dying to see the inside of the reclusive
Cullens' mystery house." Who said this, who is the speaker referring to, and what does "reclusive" mean? 3. Eclipse
Vocab Challenge #3: "In Aro's head he saw me at his one side and Alice at his other. The present and the future, virtual omniscience
." Who said this, why would Aro be virtually omniscient, and what does "omniscience" mean? 4.
The back cover of Defining Eclipse
asks whether Jacob will "win Bella's heart or be left unrequited
, and forlorn
?" What do you think, should Jacob win Bella's heart, and what do "unrequited," "petulant," and "forlorn" mean? 5.
MTV had this to say about the Defining Twilight
series, “Thanks to a new vocabulary workbook [Defining Twilight
] ... the Cullen coven can help you master the intricacies of the English language.” We agree! Decide which Eclipse
character is best described by each of the following words:
A) Prescient 1) Jacob
B) Churlish 2) Alice
C) Plaintive 3) Rosalie Solutions: 1.
Jasper and Emmett are betting about how many times Bella, as a newborn vampire, will slip from her "vegetarian" lifestyle. "Ramifications" means "consequences" or "implications." 2.
Edward. He is referring to the guests of Bella, Alice, and Edward's graduation party. "Reclusive" means "solitary." 3.
Edward. If Aro could hear thoughts, as Edward can, and see the future, as Alice can, he would be virtually all-knowing. "Omniscience" means "the state of knowing everything." 4.
The answer to this one depends on whether you are Team Edward or Team Jacob! "Unrequited" means "unreciprocated," "petulant" means "irritable," and "forlorn" means "sad and lonely." 5.
"Prescient" means "able to predict the future" which best fits Alice. "Plaintive" means "sad" and best fits Jacob, at least at the end of the book. "Churlish" means "rude" and best fits Rosalie. Use the process of elimination; Rosalie is not always rude, but she's certainly rude more often than is Alice or Jacob.
