7 Similie Personificatio n Mood and Tone “I feel like a book bring read word by word.”(Clements 243) This simile was used to describe how Bobby felt when Alicia was checking if he was really visible again and if it was really him next to her. “There is no room for thinking, just feeling, feeling like the dread is oozing up through the cracks between the boards on my floor.” (Clements 58) The quote sets and eerie and chilling mood for that particular part of the story. “I feel like her eyes are devouring my face.” (Clements 235) This personification because clearly, eyes do not devour faces. This quote compares “her eyes” as a person devouring something. In this situation, the meaning of this quote is that Bobby’s mother won’t stop looking at him. Literary Devices Table of Contents
