My jaw certainly dropped when Tyrion's stature was cited as one of the signifiers of it being a fantasy novel set in a world with which nobody could possibly identify.

Yep. Writing about grown adults of diminutive stature - that's just CRAZY! That George RR Martin, writing ridiculous fantasy nonsense with dwarves! How could anybody (especially a woman) be remotely interested in such an impossible protagonist?

...Yeah. I bet Peter Drinklage totally agrees with you about how whacky that is, Ms Bellafante. Or, you know. Not.

(Pretty painfully clear that she'd given the show only a very cursory viewing, to come away with the understanding that this is Tolkien-style worldbuilding. And yet she gets a pay cheque for this stuff.)
