Flatland by Edwin Abbott

I was unprepared for this book, I thought I was going to just have a little bit of fun playing around with dimensions, and imagining how a creature of two dimensions might live which is exactly what I got, but I got much more as well. Abbotts, fun book about geometry also turns out to a social commentary on the treatment of woman, and the class structure of Victorian society a a topic I was not expecting, it also takes some rather dark turns towards the end. Again I feel reflecting the nasty end to which many great thinkers have gone…

Thought please go enjoy flatland, for being… flatland, especially if you have ever asked a question like “what would happen if I left earth and went to the edge of the universe”, you might find some answears from a …. higher dimension 😉
