The last sentence

The last sentence of the novel I have just finished (SPOILER ALERT):

“Everything had gone wrong, and he had succeeded at nothing, and he was never going to have any kind of life at all.”

Hey, thanks, literary fiction! Again! I wish the author had found a way to move that line somewhere up towards the beginning, thus saving me a lot of trouble.
