Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions


Interesting read about the world of dimensions. Flatland is a world of two dimensions but there is also Lineland (one dimension), Spaceland (three dimensions) and even Pointland (zero dimensions). Rather ingenious tale but unfortunately also pretty much dated (which in itself shouldn't be so surprising as the story dates from 1884), the descriptions of the women is also rather sexist (but that is probably just a sign of those times, but still).
