Humans are suspicious of robots and harbor resentment toward them for putting them out of jobs and this resentment is treated fairly sympathetically throughout the novel, even as one of the central characters, R. Il protagonista poliziotto, Bailey, mi ha ricordato per certi versi altri commissari o detective, pur restando un personaggio unico. Some of the characters were lackluster, especially the protagonist Elijah Baley.

Whereas cities of the past could function for months or even weeks at a time after being “cutoff” from the rest of the nation, these “modern cities” of the future would not last a day.

Daneel each had varying levels of character development over the course of the novel, but both did develop into deeper characters as both were forced to change due to the nature of the crime they were investigating as well as how they interacted with each other.
