One of the elements of a good story is that you have strong three dimensional characters that change over time. Peter Quill, the Hometown Prophet in this book certainly fits this requirement as you see him grow from an aimless young man lacking purpose into someone who lives with a sense of calling. But just when Peter starts to become interesting this story is over.
Hometown Prophet starts out with a good premise, God chooses to invade the dreams of Peter and over time these dreams are shared and come to pass, hence the Hometown Prophet. There are various other characters introduced who either aid or oppose Peter – or a combination of both of these things. This is where I had the greatest problem with this book, the lack of development of the other characters. We are introduced to them but they are still strangers at the end of the story.
