The dog in the beginning doesn't die, but a separate dog is mentioned in passing to have died towards the end of the book.

There is a lot of discussion about Chinese beliefs about the spiritual world and restless spirits, but there aren't really any ghosts in the narrative itself.

However, there are a lot of scenes where characters have limited access to food, and there is description of how their bodies are changing as a result. No one dies of starvation in the narrative, though.

The childbirth scene is written in a way that suggests the mother dies, but we find out later that she actually ran away
