Yours Truly, 2095

By Brian Paone


About the Book:  Jeff Blue-the victim of a time-travel conspiracy-wakes up trapped in the year 2095. The only familiar face is J0; a robotic copy of the wife he left behind in 1981. But can she be trusted? J0 could be the only key to unlock Jeff’s journey home, but it will require her to do something against her programming-something human. During Jeff’s perilous journey through the future, he will have to discover the truth about J0’s origins, and solve the mystery behind how he wound up in 2095, in order to uncover the reality of his own destiny. Armed with a one-way ticket to the moon, Jeff must race against the clock to seize what might be his last chance to return home to his time. A time without hover cars, Justice Computers, or TeleSkins-a time over one hundred years ago.


My Review: Yours Truly, 2095 is brilliantly written. Brian Paone was able to bring me into the future with his character Jeff as if it was a natural transition. As someone who has a hard time with time travel ideas/concepts/ books/movies etc, I was surprised at how easy Brian was able to bring me into 2095 without difficulty.

The romance between J0 and Jeff was conflicting and almost confusing at first, I didn’t know if I could trust her, I wanted to pull away and not like her, but as the story went on I had mixed feelings about Jeff going back to 1981 because of J0. Brian was able to make J0 real, he was able to make her very human like but keep her robot qualities too.

The trip to the moon was so well written that it kept you into the book without pausing to question the likelihood or possibility, it just pulled you in deeper.

My only problem with this novel is the very ended. Brian, how could you leave me hanging like that? This is a very well written novel, I recommend it to anyone who is looking for a little adventure mixed with some romance and it will leave you wanting more.
