Please tell me 5 similes in part one of Fahrenheit 451 and include page numbers?
I already have the similes on page 24, 7, 13, and 14.

Bradbury uses "extended similes". They are longer and more involved.
pg 48: "The electric thimble moved like a praying mantis on the pillow, touched by her hand."
pg 37: "A book lit, almost obediently, like a white pigeon, in his hands, wings fluttering. "
pg 37: "Montag's hand closed like a mouth, crushed the book with wild devotion, with an insanity of mindlessness to his chest."
pg 31: "Montag, you shin that pole like a bird up a tree."
pg 10: " She had a very thin face like the dial of a small clock seen faintly in the dark room in the middle of a night when you waken to see the time and see the clock telling you the hour and the minute and the second, with a white silence and a glowing, all certainty and knowing what it had to tell of the night passing swiftly on toward further darknesses, but moving als toward a new sun."
