    Default Relative clause

    Hi guys,

    "Three years ago, I read The Lord of the Rings which I consider the best novel I have ever read in my life".

    In the previous example, I'm not sure about the highlight it part. So, help me please.

    regards
    Ibra

    ***** NOT A TEACHER *****

    Ibra,


    I think that you have written a very nice sentence.

    I feel that it might be helpful to underline the title and add a comma:

    Three years ago, I read The Lord of the Rings, which I consider

    the best novel I have ever read in my life.

    Also, I believe that it might be helpful (though not necessary)

    to add "to be" and "that" (again, not necessary):

    Three years ago, I read The Lord of the Rings, which I consider

    to be the best novel that I have ever read in my life.

    P.S. Perhaps some people would suggest that you delete (drop

    or erase) "in my life." The words "have ever read" gives us the

    idea that you are referring, of course, to your life, not someone

    else's life.

    I congratulate you on having written such a nice sentence.
