In the (wonderful) novel The Postmortal the cure for aging and most disease is discovered... right around now.
Civilization as we know it doesn't make it to 2100.
As far as the immortality story is important to your world building you should give it a read (Also because I love the book and recommend it whenever possible)
Nobody knows.. but here’s a MUST READ book where the author takes a good stab at a guess. Postmortal
One thing I really liked about the future with Postmortal humans is the idea of real life Trolls. They paint themselves green and wreak havoc on the immortals. Oh you just got the cure for mortality? Well they throw acid in your eyes and now you’re blind while you live for ever.
That’s just one example. Don’t wanna spoil it all. This book really is an easy and amazing read, highly advise.
Post Mortal by Drew Magary.
It was one of the first books I read in a long time, and instantly got me hooked on reading again.
Basically they find a cure for immortality. You can still die by wounds etc. Goes throughout time following one character, very interesting.
If you're interested in exploring what a world without aging would be like, I highly recommend the book "The Postmortal":
It imagines some really interesting potential consequences, further and further into the future, and is a compelling story along the way.
I always marveled at immortality, thinking it would be neat to have a lifetime to achieve everything I wanted. After reading The Postmortal by Drew Magary, I became skeptical of it entirely. There emerged a business to kill those who had taken the cure for aging, and it's entirely corrupt. Great book, offering great perspectives on not just an infinite life, but our finite one as well.
Agreed, World War Z is fantastic. <strong>Postmortal</strong> by Drew Magary is also a pretty great "what if?" book. A "cure for aging" is discovered, the book examines the effect it would have on the world.
My postmortal life can begin at last.
Hey I've seen this one! It doesn't end well...
There is a book about pretty much exactly this. It's called The Postmortal. It's really interesting and a pretty short read
You should read the book The Postmortal. I finished it a few weeks ago and found it really good from start to finish.
Already done: The Postmortal
Have you read The Postmortal
Flowers for Algernon
Water for Elephants
There's a book called The Postmortal that explores what the world would be like if this became a reality. Short version: it would be pretty nightmarish.
A dude wrote a book about that. It doesn't end well.
This reminded me of of a great book I recently read. Totally worth the $10.
