like a bolt out of the blue
внезапно, откуда ни возьмись, "как гром среди ясного неба"
The news of his son's death was like a bolt out of the blue.
- like crazy
- like a bat out of hell
- like a deer caught in the headlights
- like father, like son
- like getting blood out of a stone
- like water off a duck's back
- like taking candy from a baby
- like pulling teeth
- like nothing on earth
- like two peas in a pod
- Like it's such a big deal!
- look like the cat that swallowed the canary
- like an open book
- like a sitting duck
- like lambs to the slaughter
