Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions

Flatland (first edition) page 7

Square. Men. Women.

“I call our world Flatland, not because we call it so, but to make its nature clearer to you, my happy readers, who are privileged to live in Space.” -Edwin A. Abbott

Target Audience: 7+ science-fiction lovers who can do some simple math as they feed themselves with multi-dimensional satire

Edwin A. Abbott must have shaken the dimensions with Flatland in the year 1884. The author plays as “A Square” and narrates the geometrical world to its readers. Every sentence in the novella is laid out with clever mathy-humor. Readers will get to experience a journey from a simple point one-dimensional world to a solid dimension. Get ready to embrace humble square as he shatters your geometry to fine pieces of enlightening points.

Trust me, even after 2013-1884 = 129 years… the square with 4 limbs of vertices will surely astonish everyone out there. This is pure classic work which will matter even as we discover 4,5,6… 11+ dimensions of madness.
