Re: Game of Thrones (book/show) newbie (please no spoilers!)
But don't you think that the viewer and the reader are sharing the same experience?
To me it appears that the characters in universe are responding to Tyrion with disgust and derision. I don't see him having many friends or winning anyone over.
Anyway, it is early going for me. I'm only on page 500. I'll revisit this viewpoint when I get further along.
