I'm reading Kleiner Eisbär, wohin fährst du? von Hans de Beer but I'm puzzled by this sentence:
Lars kam sich unendlich verlassen vor.
If verlassen is a reflexive verb as the word sich suggests, then the sentence means Lars depends on his father. But if verlassen is an adjective then the sentence appears to read as "Lars came himself endlessly deserted before." I can't figure out how the words sich and vor function in this sentence.
