YMMV: Peony in Love
- One-Scene Wonder: For a few chapters Peony follows around the Banana Garden Five, a small group of female poets/intellectuals who actually existed in Real Life.
- Squick: The long, detailed descriptions of footbinding. Doubles as Nightmare Fuel and is, horrifically, Truth in Television.
- Tear Jerker: About three quarters of this book is Tear Jerker material. You have been warned.
- The Woobie: Peony, Peony, Peony.
- Wu Ren, whose heart breaks to pieces and stays that way for a long time after Peony dies.
- Peony's mother and grandmother as well, once you read about the sheer hell they went through before Peony was born.
