Publisher Description

This mind-bending early science fiction classic imagines life in a 2-dimensional world. It's a universe populated by lines, squares, and circles, whose perfect flatness creates all new definitions of life, art, and society. Edwin A. Abbott, writing under the pseudonym of "A Square," combines scathing social satire with a brilliant examination on how we all accept our limits of perception, and how much people who transcend these perceptions are often met with resistance.

I like it

At first it was a little confusing but once I remember all the position of each shape, things become clear. I’m impressed how Edwin Abbott conveyed such a complicated idea in a simple and interesting way. It’s very much worth a read. Plus, it’s free. 😬

I’m Enlightened

Read this if you like philosophy or if you don’t know if you do yet. It’s simple and quite profound. I read it through the lens of personal progress, and I have to say: I’m enlightened.
