It is a powerful quote that depicts despair. It describes the depth of the experiences described in the book itself. The book is a "feel good" book, however, in that it presents the evolution from despair to hope, and to solutions

This quote accurately captures the feeling of loneliness that was the main theme of this book. I agree with lorrained that the final theme of the book was hope. I think including an additional quote speaking of hope would have been meaningful at the end.

The author chose this quote to remind the reader that all people experience similar emotions, including loneliness, no matter the background or time frame of the story.
