I enjoyed "American Notes" more than "Pictures from Italy" since I happened to be reading this while traveling in some of the same American cities as Dickens as I read, and found it fascinating to make the comparisons. I was greatly bemused by Dickens' repeated discussions of spitting, which were frequent and lengthy. ( )

a travelogue from Dickens' trips to America and Italy. Boring. I got about 100 pages in and then started skimming the American Notes. By the end of that, I didn't even try to skim Pictures from Italy. Not like his fiction at all, really. But that is to be expected. ( )

Ich widme dieses Buch meinen Freunden in Amerika, die nach einem Empfang, dessen ich mich stets mit Stolz und Dankbarkeit erinnern werde, meinem Urteil seine Freiheit ließen ; und die, weil sie ihr Vaterland lieben, die Wahrheit, wenn sie wohlmeinend und nicht verletzend gesagt wird, vertragen können.
