* ''Oblivion'' is a terribly bleak book, but even it has its moments.
** [[spoiler: Pedro curing Carla Rivera's daughter of her cancer.]]
** After an entire book which has been very liberal with its use of HumansAreBastards, [[spoiler: Pedro is trying to reach the door in the Vatican, when he is discovered by a cleaner. The cleaner could just hand Pedro over to the Swiss Guards, but without even knowing who Pedro is or why it is important for him to reach the door, he puts down his broom and chooses to help.]]
