I took off 1 star for the following reasons. (1) Some of the math is very difficult to understand and is very advanced for the casual reader. While I guess it does make sense to do it this way since theory of the 3rd dimension (sphere) was not known or believed in during Abott's day. (2) The book certainly does not have the same ingenius level of political satire and commenatry as the original. Flatland was filled with social and political commentary and accusations of government coverups as well as social inequality during 1800s England and this books does not even even come close in doing this in any spirit. Again, I guess the author knew his limitations and this makes sense.
This book is definately a great read and is really really interesting. Some parts of it can be very hard to get through as the math can get very murky and in depth. The book is definately a very fast read and the ending is quite good. The overall spirit of Flatland is present in this book, but I definately recommend reading the original one before reading this one to get a hang of whats going on to some tangential degree.
Definately get this book, I am glad I read it and I loved it.
It is very irritating to be trying to work out the math, and finding that the 0's have been converted to o's and 1's to l's, I's to /s, etc. This is just very sloppy work, and it's not the first time that Amazon conversions have garbled text in similar ways.
When I called to complain I got shuffled around a bit, and told I needed to reboot my Kindle, which of course did no good. I finally got someone to give me a partial refund. Please do the same if you buy this book as a Kindle version so that they get the hint that they are not saving money.
