General Question 2

Would the story be different if it were set in a larger city such as New York or Toronto instead of the fictional small town of Stokum, Michigan?


  1. If this book was placed in a larger city, such as New York, the news of Luke Hunter and Stan wouldn't reach the whole city. It would only stay in a small group and not too many people would even believe that Luke is an actual prophet. The smaller the city, the more people will hear the news of Luke. I also find that smaller towns are more superstitious therefore they would be more liely to believe that Luke is a prophet.

  2. Excellent point, that makes a lot of sense. Part of the difficulty Luke is going through, is that the whole city knows about it and he can't hide in a larger city like New York.


Thanks for joining the discussion!
