Slice of Life- Day 24/31- Munching Metaphors

I am enjoying  reading the haunting novel, All the Light We Cannot See for my book club this week.  I am not a big historical fiction fan, but this book continues to draw me in thanks to its exquisite descriptions and word choice.  The metaphors slip through the text; sometimes I almost miss them but always, just at the last second, catch one and savor its detail.  Those are the best kinds of metaphors- the ones that don’t make themselves obvious, screaming, “Look at me!  I’m a metaphor!”  The ones I cherish are the ones that almost go unnoticed- a hidden, surprise spice that kicks in at the end of a tasty spoonful.
