The story is about a two-dimensional world referred to as Flatland. All existence is limited to length and breadth in Flatland, its inhabitants unable even to imagine a third dimension. The amiable narrator, A Square, provides an overview of this fantastic world - its physics and metaphysics, its history, customs, and religious beliefs. But when a strange visitor mysteriously appears and transports the incredulous Flatlander to Spaceland, a land of three dimensions, his worldview is forever shattered.

Nice classic - must "read"
I absolutely recommend this classic to any one interested in fiction. The story is very easy to grasp (and thus suitable as an audio book) but holds some insightful perspectives into how to make sense of the world. Today's reader will, however, also spot some weaknesses if he/she pays close attention to the description of the 2-dimensional world :-)
