Comparing Charles Dickens and Viki Baum

I am reading the Pickwick Papers and Grand Hotel – early works by these two authors. The Kindle Reader for PC makes it easy to switch back and forth.

I prefer Viki Baum’s novel – originally written in German. There is a love scene in it that will never be bettered.

The two works are similar – in a way that defies explanation. But Baum’s is more compact.
