This is one of the very few books that I have read over three times.
Just as Abbott takes the reader through the two-dimensional square's travails in comprehending a third dimension, so the reader is challenged to imagine a fourth.
Even though this was written around 1880 it still is one of the most creative science fiction books I have read.
Very good read if you are interested in the philosophy behind the story. It does a good job of painting universes of less than three dimensions. Read morePublished 8 days ago by Logan Gallaway
I made it about 40 pages and gave up. At first I enjoyed the description of the flatland but it didn't move fast enough. Read morePublished 10 days ago by Eric
Published in 1884, it reads like it was written yesterday. I loved the part where the 2-dimensional being realizes there's a third dimension. A worthy read.Published 19 days ago by David Kramer
Relic of its time. The description of the different dimensions was awesome- but that's about ten of seventy pages of fluff that's kind of a relic of it's time.Published 22 days ago by Mike
Disclaimer: it's important to try and visualize the expository and explanatory segments as much as possible. It was hard for me to keep up at times. Read morePublished 23 days ago by Hussam Uddin Syed

I really enjoyed this book. I would absolutely recommend it to anyone who enjoys math or geometry. I loved all of the abstract imagery. Read morePublished 1 month ago by xBelleMauvaisx
