Heartwarming / The Robots of Dawn

  • Baley and Daneel's reunion is pretty touching, partly because it shows how far Baley has come in his appreciation of Daneel. In The Naked Sun when he met Daneel again he felt the urge to give him a hug but resisted it because after all, Daneel wasn't really an old friend, just a machine. In this book, however, Elijah is very open about the fact that he does consider Daneel a friend, and the first thing he does when meeting Daneel again is to go up to him and hug him.
