I cannot speak.

Read it.

The ending is not satisfying. But it's the only true ending, and the only one that makes sense. God. It's the only one that makes sense. I can't... articulate, right now, why that's so horrible and so horrifying. And sad. But at the same time it's hopeful, not because there's any hope in the story, not because there's any possibility of a happier ending later forthcoming, but because it makes everything human in me rally and scream.

Because it's just so hard... to hold onto what makes you human.

Read the book.
