    Rewrite the sentence.

    Hi!
    How inconsiderate he was to take your book! (thoughtless)
    1- How thoughtless he was to take your book!
    2- What a thoughtless man he was to take your book!
    Is the second all right, please?

    Re: Rewrite the sentence.

    It sounds all right to me.
    Let me recommend another version: How thoughtless of him to take / have taken your book!

    Yes, and if you want a full sentence (with a finite verb) you can say:
    "How thoughtless it was of him to take your book!"
