Question about English (US)

As I was reading a book I came across the sentences below.

I've tried twice to read Moby-Dick. I give up. I'm not shamed, either. I like modern, fast-moving fiction. I've taken my last run at the great white whale. Ever. It's over.

I'm not sure what the last part means.
Is it that "I" didn't read Moby-Dick after all?
