Helpful Score: 1
i was really excited to read this but was so disappointed with several holes in the logic and physics behind the different dimensional worlds. The plot was completely secondary to the ideas of the dimensions but thats okay because the book is strong in pointing out closed mindedness, pride and arrogance in society. So overall, a bit of bummer but an easy read so i say it's worth a read!

A very witty and well written tale. A geometrician's delight and a wonderfully human story. Timeless and well worth the effort to read through to the end.
