Though it did change my prespective a bit, and made me think, I felt that Flatland was hard to drudge through. Written in 1884, it's archaic language and not-so-well-explained ideas (especially in Part 1)made it hard for even me, an avid reader, to get through. Though it picked up in Part 2, I wouldn't reccomend it, but would reccomend thinking about the ideas it displays. However, saying that, I am in High School and not a big fan of Math; prehaps one day I'll go back to read it and apppreciate it more. For now, though, it's definately not my cup of tea.
