The Blue Germ by Maurice Nicoll(1917)

I don’t know of many books this compact and this thought provoking. You, the reader, embark on a journey through a world forced to cope with immortality. Two scientists discover, cultivate and release a germ that rids the body of all other germs. Things do not go as planned. People do not become immortal but they become close. They are impervious to disease. The amazing part is how far the author goes down this rabbit hole. He takes immortality to its furthest possible conclusion. I encourage you to question your world by reading The Blue Germ.
