    Smart book

    Great story...really gets one thinking about multidimensional possibilities. Ian Stewart's annotated version is nice. He explains mathemarical concepts as well as Victorian-era cultural influences. E.A. Abbott's perspective writing is insightful and ammazing!

    Good free edition

    If you've not read this introduction to dimensional geometry and satire of Victorian society, it's worth a read. It's only 80 pages, so it can read in a couple sittings.

    This free edition has almost no errors, which is quite rare in these scanned titles. If you're looking for a free edition, this one should suit.

    Um

    Is this a ROMANCE romance (guys and gals getting very close), or just a romance (kisses and hugs in full clothing)?

    Flatland and what I thought about it.

    Flatland was a very interesting book. The world is completely different from the world we have today. For one in this book the people are shapes. In our world we have humans. Another huge difference is in the world of FLatland the miltary is nothing to them but in this world our miltary is everything to us. If we didn't have a miltary we wouldn't have half of the things we have today. The main difference to me being that I am a female is women in this book are treated like they are not important. They have separate doors away from the men's doors. In this world there are still some sexist people but it is still better than how the women in FLatland get treated. Although I disagree with some of the things in this book overall this book is good and I would recommend it to people and I would also like them to comment to see if they share the same feelings I have or if they have the complete opposite reaction from what I have.

    A Sci Fi Classic

    It was mentioned in Infinite Jest, so I bought it. It's a little dry, but it contains some great concepts.

    The introduction should be saved for last as suggested by the writer because it will bring perspective to the two dimensional world. As a physician, i encounter two dimensions everyday with reading of mri's, cat scans, etc. And never realized this. Overall, it was pure genius.
