“Victor wondered about lots of things. He wondered about himself (whether he was broken, or special, or better, or worse) and about other people (whether they were all really as stupid as they seemed).

He wondered about life, and people, and science, and magic, and God, and whether he believed in any of them.”

Vicious, VE Schwab
