Cool Is Toric going to the dogs?

Yeah, but I got the feeling that that shady harper (Pinch?) had the dogs trained to follow him, so if Toric stepped out of line, that he could have the dogs attack Toric.

Toric also seemed too impatient to try to train the dogs himself, so that they would follow only his commands.

i don't remember if Pinch did train the dogs to stop Toric or not. I would love to see what happens after SOP.

I know that Pinch had trained the dogs and probably at a greater level than Toric realized but I did not think Toric was in danger from the dogs....I think the secrecy about the deaths at AIVAS center will keep the Abominators disorganized for a while but did think that the meeting of Toric with the woman who was described as most fanatical could lead to another interesting storyline....I suppose after survivng thread, tropical storm,tsunami, and collission with a comet...there are not manynatural disasters left to discuss for Pern....

I don't think that Toric was "in danger" from the dogs at that time. But I do think that should be observed doing something against the interests of PERN, that he might have an unfortunate hunting accident.

AMC has promised one last book about PERN, so maybe we will find out what happened to these two abominators in that book.

I look forward to seeing how all the lose ends are tied up. It's been awhile since I read the book, but I do remember wanting to know more about what happens next.

That would be wonderful. There are several of those hangers I would love to see tied up!

I don't know. If all loose ends were tied up, it would detract from my ability to 'suspend my disbelief' (english teachers love that phrase) baisically, i think that if all ends were tied up, the story would seem less real, at least to me.
