Like many other readers, I had issues with the ending of this book. It seems to lose focus and just spin away into the ether. The screenwriters did right in washing out the more religious aspects in this book when they wrote the movie.

The background is much more specific in PKD's world. I appreciated the speculative element - what would happen if all the best and brightest left the planet after a nuclear holocaust, leaving behind the not so good and bright on a semi-empty deteriorating rock? This aspect of the story is portrayed more nebulously as a gloomy atmosphere in the movie.
