One can't help comparing the two? What do you guys think the main difference between the two? In terms of style and theme?

I haven't read much of Czech literature, only some Hrabal. Not enough to compare. Generally I think that both must be similar because of the similar life conditions and peoples mentalities. Some historical and political differences, but still, we are the closest kin.

Although I was surprised to read it, there was something that said that slavic Hungarians are more similar to Poles in many ways. I only know one couple who are Hungarian (she) and Polish (he), and they sure are similar and have a great restaurant together. I have also had many a delicious lunch and dinner at our local Czech club, a wonderful place, where the cook is Czech and his wife Polish, so, who knows?
