is this a metaphor?
hot as hell ?
if it isnt a metaphor what is it?
Re: is this a metaphor?
It's a simile.
Similies and metaphors are very similar, but the difference is that a simile compares one thing to another with "as" or "like", or something similar.
"He was a wolf in sheep's clothing" - this is a metaphor.
"He acted like a wolf in sheep's clothing" -- this is a simile.
