    not read The Lord of the Rings but watched (it)

    Hello all,

    1- I did not read(,) but watched The Lord of the Rings.

    2- I did not read The Lord of the Rings(,) but watched it.

    3- I did not read The Lord of the Rings(,) but watched.

    Which ones do you think sounds good? I think sentences 1 and 2 are OK. But I cannot make sure. Do I need a comma before but?

    Thank you!

    Re: not read The Lord of the Rings but watched (it)

    2 is the most natural. You need the comma.

    I'd say

    'I haven't read The Lord of the Rings, but I've seen the film'.
