: PLEASE DEAR GOD stop with the similes and metaphors! Everything does not HAVE to be "like" something. A door can just "burst open", it does not have to "fly open like a rabid otter crashing through a stack of Pepsi cans." Seriously, almost every damn thing in this book has some kind of simile attached to it, nothing can just HAPPEN, it's all "like" something "wacky and creative".
