Transcript of Something Wicked This Way Comes

Something This Way Comes By Ray Bradbury Hyperbole's "Jim and me be cannibalized." Pg 96 "On the night grass a thousand miles below." Pg 107 Exaggerated statements or claims not meant to be taken literally.
Metaphor A figure of speech "So Will just stood with cougar and dark on his tongue" Pg26 "Would a billion images look back...." pg 40 Personification A human like action for a non-living thing. "Even standing there with the calm light of justice dancing on his cheekbones. pg 91 "At the same moment he heard a great breath as the front door swung shut..." Pg 166 Symbolism The use of symbols to represent ideas or qualities. The "No Sale" sign when Mr. Dark Missed Will and Jim. It seems to mock him that he missed them by a couple of minutes The storm always hits the town after the carnival leave. Because the storm is something that could follow evil where ever it goes. Differences Movie vs. Book. Which did I like more? Well I liked the book more because the movie left a lot of detail out. Like when it came to "Mr. Electro" it was suppose to be Mr. Cooger who was Mr. Electo but instead they made it the lightning rod sales man. So that also meant the little dwarf man wasn't there, and that was on of my favorite parts in the book. So I was kind of disappointed that they skipped that part. Book Review. In my opinion I like the book. But I don't think I would ever read it again.I would suggest that every teenager read this book at least once, because this book gives you a different feel of other books out there. Reading this book, for me at least, was a mixture of poetry and fiction. So in all I give this book a thumbs up. "His simile melt like a white and pink paraffin candy toy" Pg 155 His smile can't really melt a candy toy. No one's can. It's physically impossible. But when he meant was that his smile was so bright it could melt it if possible. Similes A figure of speech that usually compares things using the words like or as.
