Yours Truly, 2095 by Brian Paone is a time travel fiction story that any time travel romance junkie would be proud of. I enjoyed every single aspect of the novel, from the main characters to the story line to the way the narrative was written. This is the story of Jeff Blue, a man from the year 1981, who has a wife, a dead daughter and a troubled marriage. But that is not all. Jeff wakes up 114 years in the future where he is living with the robotic clone of his wife. In the future, Jeff has a cushy life and his marriage is not troubled at all.
However, Jeff cannot stay in the future and he cannot go back to the past on his own. He needs the help of someone far more intelligent and more resourceful than himself. He needs help from his JO, his robotic wife, but does she have it in herself to help him. She is, after all, a robot who is incapable of feeling any human emotions. Even if she is able to help Jeff, getting back to his own time would be extremely difficult and might even be impossible. Should he try to get back to his own time where he would have to deal with an almost-broken marriage or stay in the future where his life is perfect?
The characters were so well-developed that I swear I could image meeting such people on the streets. The narrative was so strong that I could give a voice and face to each character and hear them. Brian Paone did an amazing job with creating two very believable time lines that stayed true to the era they were depicting. I can imagine a future in which there would be robotic human companions and I can imagine living such a life. This is a brilliant novel.
