I chose this book (foolishly) to purchase rather than other editions because of the colorful cover. This edition was exactly the same as the "Gutenberg Project's" Ascii edition. It had the same print styles, same illustrations (in ASCII ART) and font styles. This book was just printed out and bound version of the free "Gutenberg Project" edition (http://www.gutenberg.org/etext/201) which is just ridiculous. I of course could be wrong but the similarities are uncanny.

If this story doesn't get your brain ticking I don't know what will. This story really makes you think. It forces the reader to look at things differently and may open up some new ways of perceiving the world.

It is difficult to imagine fourth spatial dimension, much less 11 that string theory suggests, but just because we cannot even conceive the idea doesn't mean it is not possible. After all, a being in flatlat finds our three dimensional world as unfathomabe as we find multi-dimensional world. Flatland is a short and simple read but opens mind to fantasy world of no dimension (pointland), one dimension (lineland) and two dimensions (flatland). Author's imaginations conjure up social hierarchy, ruling structure, culture and history of a fictional world forcing the reader to stretch his imaginations. An quick enjoyable stimulating read that will leave you smiling and thinking in the end.

Flatland is a delightful book, the only that I know of that is narrarated by a two dimensional square. It provides a lesson in geometry and understanding dimensions. But it also operates, subtly, on another level, providing perhaps a tongue in cheek commentary on the British class system and social/sexual relations. It's politically incorrect at times, if taken seriously and not as a satire, but it's a lot of fun.
