Okay, when can we start RD discussion?

I'm *really* looking forward to discussing this book, especially in comparison with _Beauty_ ... one might almost think the two books were written by two different (but similar) authors. _B_ is simply structured and plotted; love grows in a straight, realistic, and recognizable fashion, rather like roses on a trellis. But _RD_ twists the roses -- and the plot, and the symbolism, and the characters -- all over the place... I'm not entirely sure I liked the book, which is why I'm eager to get started on discussion: I don't think I understood it very well (or maybe it's the victim of my expectations). Anyway, when shall we begin?
