Literary Devices

In this novel the author Clive Cussler, makes good use of literary devices such as similes, and metaphors. An example of this is when Kurt says "Being down here is like the inside of a hornets nest." This enriches the story by giving more detail to what the setting actually looks like. I know now after that simile that the tunnels they were crawling in were not very pleasant. Many authors use these devices to help with their story, which I believe is a very good idea.
