I was a bit bemused by this short story. A very dramatic scenario is told in a bland, matter-of-fact manner with little description or characterisation, let alone atmosphere. And it seems to end at a random moment.
I think it really needed to be anchored to Robert's point of view the whole way through. He's woken by a scream from a neighbouring apartment, he rushes round and meets other neighbours for the first time, forms opinions of them, experiences emotions, makes conclusions about Katrina's character from the details he sees in her apartment... It would have made me feel more involved in the drama.
