Reread:
Yeah i still like it. Few other works cause you to contemplate the nature of reality more and with the Holographic Theory gaining ground in physics this is as appropriate today as it ever was, whether read as a dystopia, social satire or scientific thesise :) .

1st Read: I really liked this, not sure if it was supposed to be but i found it quite hilarious in places. For weeks after i read this whenever i saw a triangle painted on the road (thats something they do here not sure why) i found myself smiling. What better recommendation could there be. ( )

A Book With Non-Human Characters

I don't remember how I stumbled on to Flatland for this category—most search results list books with animals—but I'm glad I did. The first-person narrator of Edwin A. Abbott's short novel first explains the physical mechanics and societal organization of his two-dimensional space, which he calls Flatland for his readers' benefit, then relays his "personal" story of leaving Flatland for the three-dimensional world with the assistance of an alien visitor, Sphere. The quotes around the word personal reflect the fact that our narrator is a square, rather than a human, who occupies the respectable position of attorney due to his four sides. In Flatland, the more sides an individual has, the higher his position in society. Sphere has a third dimension previously unknown and unimagined in two-dimensional Flatland, a dimension which confers status far beyond that of any shape living in Flatland. Eventually, the square comes to treat Sphere as a god.

In some ways Flatland is reflective of its time (1884) and place (England). Flatland is a patriarchal society, where women are the simplest geometric shape (straight lines) and are restricted from education. It's telling that, when viewed head-on, women are essentially invisible. Owing to the sharpness of their terminal ends, they are also extremely dangerous physically to the other inhabitants of Flatland and are required to emit a Peace-cry to warn those around them of their presence. The highest societal position is that of Priests, who are circles.

In other ways, it is still relatable 137 years after its initial publication. The conflict between the various shapes is analogous to today's world. The upper shapes look down on and use the lower shapes for their own benefit. The lower shapes resent the upper shapes. Their attempt to overthrow the societal hierarchy employs color, rather than weapons, to eliminate the cognitive differences between the shapes.

Flatland is an interesting thought experiment about the universality of human nature, regardless of physical reality. ( )

'Flatland' is quite unlike anything I have ever read. It tells the story of a square living in two-dimensional space; the first part of the book describes the life of this square and the society he inhabits, all of which perfectly sets up the second part of the book, where a three-dimensional being interrupts the square's life to show him that Space is not what it seems.

A magnificent triumph of a book, one that will have you thinking and thinking. It reminded me of Butler's 'Erewhon' but arguably better executed - mostly because of its delicate focus on the matters at hand. There is very little by way of moralising - the reader is left to draw their own conclusions, and so a Christian reading this book will draw analogies with the Christ legend, while atheists will find in it arguments aplenty against all manner of religion.
