    A very peculiar tale about how we never know what exactly goes on behind anyone s closed doors It is a very entertaining read, so much that for the most part, I got almost as curious about things as the protagonist forgetting that what he was doing was neither normal nor ethically right and not even legally But the story is written in such a way that the focus is entirely shifted away from the protagonist right after he, and his peculiar hobby is introduced, to the other character Celia A very peculiar tale about how we never know what exactly goes on behind anyone s closed doors It is a very entertaining read, so much that for the most part, I got almost as curious about things as the protagonist forgetting that what he was doing was neither normal nor ethically right and not even legally But the story is written in such a way that the focus is entirely shifted away from the protagonist right after he, and his peculiar hobby is introduced, to the other character Celia I enjoyed reading this story farthan I thought I would and it has, as my friend said, left a lasting impact on me I don t think I can ever look at my neighbours the same way again and will always wonder about what they do behind their closed doors but not in a creepy stalker way, of course Do read it if you like reading about other worldly things and weird things, basically if you love speculative fiction.NOTE This story was recommended to me by my friend, Dagny and I read it for RMFAO 2020 Genre Challenge Sci Fi Month and RMFAO 2020 Classics Catch Up
