Illustrated by the author, this early twentieth-century work is a mock-sociological study of Flatland (the world of one dimension) and the narrator’s introduction to three dimensions.
A fascinating book
The story of a square's life in the land of two dimensions, which is quite ordinary until one day a strange being takes him on a journey to the third dimension. This is a book that will turn your brain on its end and change the way you view society, theology, and all of reality. Recommended for high-level readers.
It was very thought provoking
