** On that note, Wang Lung's reference to how "a woman must bear and bear and bear" just to have any hope of surviving offspring. He points out that Wang Lung's mother had so many children ("a score or more") but he can't even remember the actual number. Of all those babies, only Wang Lung survived.

* CompleteMonster: Wang Lung's uncle, who repeatedly mooches off of his nephew, treats his niece in law cruelly, is suspected of eating some of his children during a famine, joins/becomes the leader of a gang that kills people, burns down houses and rapes women [[ForTheEvulz for laughs]], and attempts to blackmail Wang Lung with this fact. [[spoiler: Fortunately, [[KarmicDeath he ends up dying from his opium addiction]]...and then his equally vile son takes over]].

* FridgeHorror: Wang Lung's uncle is healthy and active long after Wang Lung's father is sick enough to be confined to bed [[spoiler: and even dies.]] That means he's probably related to Wang Lung's mother, not his father. Say... how big of an age difference would that imply between Wang Lung's father and his mother?

* DeliberateValuesDissonance: Though Buck was a die-hard feminist, she depicts traditional Chinese practices (such as concubines and foot-binding) fairly straightforwardly.
