Written in 1884 this is a humorous journey into the imagination. Consider what life would be like in a two-dimensional universe. Just beware of those dangerous needle-point women! On a more serious note you might actually learn something about geometry. Historically many at the time thought the realm of God could possibly exist in higher dimensions.
