* NauseaFuel: It was the type of book you ''couldn't put down'', but ''God'' were the moments when you wanted to just chuck the thing at the wall. [[spoiler:Any of the scenes involving corpses was enough.]]
* NightmareFuel: The fates of [[spoiler: The Major and the guy from the orchard]].
** Parts of the film are very uncomfortable to watch, particularly [[spoiler: Daisy finding and searching the corpses at Gatesfield.]]
* StrangledByTheRedString: In the film Edmond and Daisy's relationship just happens, and all of a sudden Edmond is just the one, period.
* TheWoobie: Almost everyone, really.
** IronWoobie: ''Piper'' - in the book, at least - although she does crack once or twice.
