Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions is an 1884 science-fiction novel. As a satire, Flatland offered pointed observations on the social hierarchy of Victorian culture. However, the book's more enduring contribution is its examination of dimensions. In a foreword to one of the many publications of the book, noted science fiction author Isaac Asimov described Flatland as The best introduction one can find into the manner of perceiving dimensions.

The novel remains popular today and several films have been made from the story. One was a feature film in 2007 called Flatland. There were also a number of short films, including one narrated by Dudley Moore and another with with Martin Sheen entitled Flatland: The Movie.

    " Go figure, I bring up Flatland as at dinner to generate some intelligent discussion and I m surprised that my daughter just watched the movie, Kristen Bell as A. Square, to celebrate Pi Day... March 14... 3.14. The stories end differently but are both entertaining as determined by our discussion. However, not enough for either of us to look for a sequel, unless used to provide some edutainment in a school. "

    " Flatland literally changed the way I think about the world. A must read. "

    " Having just re-read Flatland , I am reminded of what makes this book a classic, with its fascinating creativity and clarity in describing the perspectives of life in three (perhaps four) different dimensional realms. It is technically impressive given that the analogy of the geometry is used so thoroughly to embark on some hilarious satire as well as philosophical and theological speculation. It was worth a second read. "

    " Very imaginative thought experiment / story. "
