Review: Sphereland: A Fantasy about Curved Spaces and an Expanding Universe

User Review  - Noel - Goodreads

slow going, because seemed to repeat the premise and beginning plot of Flatland, but it finally got going around 3/4 through! Fun analogies to our 3-dimensional space, and a fun not-so-metaphorical look at our own grapple with space-time. Read full review

Review: Sphereland: A Fantasy about Curved Spaces and an Expanding Universe

User Review  - Eric - Goodreads

I enjoyed the novel. I liked the expansion on non-Euclidean geometry and the thought of an expanding sphere at the end. The way the book intertwines various well known stories was a nice touch. Read full review
