Adams packs a lot in what seems to be a short story (I finished the entire book in under 2 hours). Most of the book is a philosphical discussion between a UPS delivery man and an old man (called the Avatar). The discussion is just as good as anything I have read by Plato (I am thinking of The Apology) and basically tries to define who is God and what is his purpose. Towards the end of the discussion, the Avatar gives the deliveryman some great advice about relationships and life.
I really enjoyed Adam's preface at the beginning that basically tells you not to expect Dilbert or any comic moments like the Dilbert strips. Adams is excellent deviating from what he is known for.
