Abbott used the fictional two-dimensional world of Flatland to offer pointed observations on the social hierarchy of Victorian culture. However, the novella's more enduring contribution is its examination of dimensions, for which the novella is still popular amongst mathematics, physics, and computer science students. Several films have been made from the story, including a feature film in 2007 called Flatland. Other efforts have been short or experimental films, including one narrated by Dudley Moore and a short film with Martin Sheen titled Flatland: The Movie.

    " Fantastic book to expand how you think of dimensions. "

    " I've decided that I don't like satire very much. Either I don't understand what the author is making fun of, or I think their approach is stupid. In this case I didn't really like how the story was told, as opposed to the idea itself. The main character is partially to blame. "

    " A fun read. One of the cases where the story behind the book may be better than the one within it. Anyone with an interest in both physics and literature ought to enjoy this. I can think of few other examples where the two so closely meet. "

    " An exhortation to use one's imagination. Though the language is charmingly old-fashioned and the allegory of Victorian England somewhat dated, Abbott still inveigled me to imagine the "extra-Cube" of hyperspace. Like the poor square, I have difficulty visualizing where to put the seventh and eighth cubes that would form the "sides" of that extra-Cube, but it's been fun to try! Abbott's vision of a "modest" humanity that is more enlightened than our present one is also touching. "
