"I don't care what anyone says,

"or how often or winningly they say it: no-one will ever, ever be able to persuade me that life is some awesome, rewarding treat. Because, here's the truth, life is catastrophe."
 "And as much as I would like to believe [that] there's a truth beyond illusion, I've come to believe that there is no truth beyond illusion."

Donna Tartt, The Goldfinch,
a thriller with a back-story almost 500 pages long, and a (tacked-on ?) coda which is a disquisition on Truth, Reality, and whether life is worth living or not.
