4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good sequel to Flatland - rather a long time to wait!, 17 April 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Flatterland: Like Flatland, Only More So (Hardcover)
I found this book very compelling... I'd thoroughly recommend this book, especially to the mathematically minded and those that enjoy having their imaginations stretched. The action starts with the descendants of the inhabitants of Flatland. Vicki, a teenage girl (one dimensional of course) stumbles across the secret of calling beings from outside her 2D world. Her subsequent trips take her through many strange worlds: multi-dimensional, fractional dimensional, and just plain weird. If you liked Ian Stewart's other books you'll like this one, but it's pretty different from the others as well. It's full of mathematical puns and is a really good way of manking you think about some of the strange spaces that exist in the relams of mathematics. If you've already discovered Flatland or Planiverse you'll just have to get this book.
