Flatland \u0026 Twelve Years A Slave Narrative Of Solomon Northup By Edwin A. Abbott

    Flatland

    Refreshing

    It was fun about math without reading about calculations. Quite cleverly put together. As the book goes the shape is in it's own disbelief that other dimensions exist. Like the humans will surely prove to be. Literature Fiction, Nonfiction

    It describes the journeys of A. Square, a mathematician and resident of the two-dimensional Flatland, where women-thin, straight lines-are the lowliest of shapes, and where men may have any number of sides, depending on their social status.Through strange occurrences that bring him into contact with a host of geometric forms, Square has adventures in Spaceland (three dimensions), Lineland (one dimension) and Pointland (no dimensions) and ultimately entertains thoughts of visiting a land of four dimensions—a revolutionary idea for which he is returned to his two-dimensional world.
