I need help with finding 5 similies, 10 metaphors, and 6 hyperboles, also what are all of the characters in the book?

I only need help with what I asked for and anything else is useless thank you. :)

Ok, I will try not to add unwanted information :) !

Similes:

1. '...,snorting into the water like a horse.' Chapter 1

2. '...flies shot like rushing stars.' Chapter 2

3. '"Strong as a bull,"...' Chapter 2

4. 'Her hair hung in little clusters, like sausages.' Chapter 2

5. 'His hands, large and lean, were as delicate in their action as those of a temple dancer.' Chapter 2

 

Metaphors:

1. '"..., bustin' a gut."' Chapter 1

2. '"Give the stable buck hell..."' Chapter 2

3. '..., and the flies whipped through it...' Chapter 2

4. '"..., we're gonna get the can."' Chapter 2

5. "His hatchet face was ageless." Chapter 2

6. '..., Curley bounced in.' Chapter 2

7. 'The sunshine lay in a thin line under the window.' Chapter 2

8. 'Curley popped into the doorway...' Chapter 2

9. '"...rollin' up a stake,"' Chapter 3

10. '"I bet we could swing her,"' Chapter 3

 

Hyperboles:

1. '...Lennie made an elaborate pantomime of innocence.' Chapter 1

2. 'Lennie choked with pride.' Chapter 1

3. '"Millions of 'em."' Chapter 1

4. '"He was sore as hell..."' Chapter 2

5. 'Curley lashed his body around.' Chapter 2

6. 'His authority was so great that his word was taken on any subject, be it politics or love.' Chapter 2

 

Characters:

I don't have enough characters left in this document to describe every single character, so I will attach a link below that will do exactly that!

The words in bold explain how that sentence is a simile/metaphor/hyperbole- they are the key words that make it.

I hope you have found this helpful!

:)
