    A lot of people have written sequels and homages to Flatland , and most of them only managed to live up to the original by virtue of that original not being very good to begin with When people call Planiverse a worthy successor , though, they are doing it a disservice The Planiverse started its life as what ha

    Simply one of the best and most detailed well thought out alternate worlds ever presented in print From the computer simulation oh, how I wanted to play with exactly such a program through which the protagonists make contact with a complex, living two dimensional world, to the many illustrations detailing that world s flora, fauna, arch

    A little slow in the beginning, but a fascinating thought experiment in action This book not only sparked my imagination wondering what the rest of Arde looks like, but it pleased the analytical portion of my brain as well There is a surprising amount of real life science that backs up a lot of what is stated in the book I have no doubt that if we were able to observe a 2 dimen
