Hey peoples, As title says, I'm debating naive characters in stories. And by that I mean characters that don't understand something, even though the reader does. It goes along with the 'unreliable narrator' concept I think. For instance, the reader understands girl likes the PoV character by the way the girl is acting. But the PoV character doesn't understand the signs, leaving the reader with the intention of chuckling at his stupidity. PoV character's naivety is obvious to the reader. Should the character understand at the same time as the reader, or is it fine for the reader to read along, amused at his naive actions, until at last he fully understands? Or is this too fustrating? Should the reader not know until that final moment when the character does?
