Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions (Dover Thrift Editions) by Edwin A Abbott
Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions (Dover Thrift Editions)

Patrick Maguire, January 15, 2010

A truly brilliant book that manages to exceed all expectations. It at once weaves fascinating physical and geometrical concepts together with a political satire of Victorian England. While it may sound dry at first, it is actually well worth the read. The narration explores basic geometrical ideas with a world populated by two-dimensional "people". As impossible to classify as it is to explain, this is a fun book altogether!
