Flatland is a very interesting and thought-provoking book about A Squares adventures in lands of different dimensions A Square a lawyer and mathematician in a two-dimensional world visits Spaceland a land of three-dimension Lineland a land of one dimension and Pointland a land of no dimensions The narrator of Flatland is A Square He is the son of an equilateral triangle and a line This four-sided figure is a lawyer The squares are part of the middle classes A Square is just a regular square that starts to get visions of other universes He dreams of visiting Lineland which has 1 dimension and he sees Pointland which has no dimensions A Square is visited by a Sphere who shows him Spaceland or 3 dimensions He is chosen to preach the Gospel of Three Dimensions to his fellow citizens of Flatland At each previous millennium someone has been chosen to preach it A Square gets arrested as soon as he starts to tell people He is sent to prison for life and so he writes a book hoping someday there would be a Flatlander that believed himThe major conflict faced by the narrator was that he could not explain Flatland to the king of Lineland and he could not understand the revelation from the sphere until he went to Spaceland In a dream the narrator visits Lineland a world of only one dimension and there interacts with its king whom he finds hopelessly trapped both in body and mind in a single-dimension perspective No matter how A Square intersects his two-dimensional form with one-dimensional Lineland he is unable to convince the king of any reality other than one dimension Later in the story the same thing happens in a realm of no dimension namely Pointland The tables are turned on A Square though as he receives a visit from a strange creature who insists that he is something that A Square has never heard of much
