    Question about"other than"

    Hello,
    1)I have just learnt this word “other than”.
    I saw some examples . It can be used as followed.

    You can't get there other than by boat.
    She has no close friends other than him.

    If I want to express that somethings are suprsing,
    can I say“ That things are other than expected” ?

    2) If I want to say" it's so mysterious ", can I say ”that mysterious“?(I saw this sentence from internet,but I don't feel right about it.)

    Thank you! :)

    Re: about"other than"

    Welcome to the forum, crusco.

    With "other than", we have two words, meaning in addition to , except for.
    You can say that things are "other than expected"

    You can say, "it's so mysterious" in the appropriate context.

    Please ask unconnected questions in different threads in future.
