In the two-dimensional world known as Flatland, all existence is limited to length and breadth and its inhabitants unable even to imagine a third dimension. A Square chronicles the various facets of his world, including its physics and metaphysics, its history, customs, and religious beliefs. But when a strange visitor mysteriously appears and transports the incredulous Flatlander to Spaceland, a land of three dimensions, his worldview is forever shattered. With wry humor and penetrating satire, Flatland takes readers on a mind-expanding journey into a different world to give us a new vision of our own. Flatland introduces aspects of relativity and hyperspace years before Einstein's famous theories, making it a prophetic science fiction classic.

After a long time hearing about the 2 dimentional world book, I finally decided to reference the comments and read the book. I certainly was not what I expected. This book can be as simply entertaining a read or as deep and philosophical a read as you put into it. The basic ideas a hard to miss, but a little enlightenment can be found when read to the conclusion.
