    That's funny! When I first read it I thought the exact same thing about more failed gunslingers.

    What about you?
    As soon as they mentioned something about the hoods, I knew.

    I think failed Gunslingers may have been a lot cooler.

    I think robot wolves in Dr Doom cloaks were pretty damn cool. Especially wielding light sabers and sneetchs.

    I was really confused about it. And upset too, because I kept thinking... wait... is he really not saying what they are or did I just miss something?. So I kept having to go back and reread passages and I was pretty annoyed with myself when I figured out that he wasn't going to tell us right away.

    The green cloaks that were described reminded me of something comic related, but I couldn't put my finger on it. For one thing I refused to. The connection with the Tower and comics was completely crossed out in my mind. Mostly because I'm a huge fan of comics and I feel isolated about it so I figure why make that connection just to be let down. So in my mind I kinda just X-ed that out.

    I'm still baffled by it right now and in denial. I want to see them with my own eyes. I never ached to have complete visual of a story then at the moment when they were revealed.

    I had it at Roland's repetition of the description of the Wolves' horses as "all the same, all grey."

    Yeah, I didn't dwell on it too much, so likely found out when King made it real obvious with the stuffy guy target practice. Great twist!!!!!!!!!

    You say true. I don't think being a weatherman in Thunderclap is a particularly difficult job.

    I seriously don't understand why the hoods were such big giveaways to folks. The grey horses I get, but not that.

    Yes. Forecasts go like this "dark out today with the thunder and the next day and the next day etc, news at 11"

    I don't know either. I guess as soon as some people thought "Dr. Doom" they were able to leap right to robots from there? I'm not that big of a comic book geek, so I couldn't make that jump. All grey, that I kennit.

    I don't agree. Also, I think there is more to the Wolves than we know..some allusions to that in the books. I hope we get some background on them in The Road Home..

    I remember thinking that the horses were probably robotic, because they kept making a point of how they were all the exact same shade of gray. But even having made that leap, I still didn't guess that the wolves were!

    I can honestly say that I did not expect that the wolves would have lightsabers and sneetches. Some of you know that I think that was a mistake on King's part. Anyways... that was the most surprising (and unfortunate) thing for me.

    Same here. It also makes me wonder if whomever built the Wolves might have gleaned the ideas for them from the minds of the Breakers.
