Granted, this somebody is my father, who is arguably rather biased in my favor. But still! :)
He finished it last Wednesday, in fact, but tonight was the first time I talked to him about it. My father is an avid reader, but mostly of mysteries and the occasional sf; he doesn't usually read fantasy of any sort. He wouldn't've read Prophecy if I hadn't written it. But he said he found it quite engaging once he got into it. And I believe him, because he only took about five days to read it -- a pretty good clip to parse a 210,000 word manuscript.
While he admits it has faults, he is of the opinion that I ought to try to publish it straight away, rather than spending a lot more time trying to fix the things that are wrong with it. I don't think I'll be taking this advice; I'll probably sit on it for a few more months, maybe see what other comments I get back from readers. Then I'll revise it; fix some of the characterizations and maybe work on the ending.
But, in any case, I'm glad someone's read it. I'm not the only one who's read the ending anymore! I have someone I can talk to about it!
