Let's say that the sentences below part of a dialogue:
- Look! I have not ever read it, but watched it.
- Look! I have not ever read, but watched it.
(P.S. 'it' refers to 'Lord of the Rings')
I would like to ask if I should put 'it' after 'read' and 'watched' or just after 'it'.
You should say, "[Look,] I've never read it, but I've watched the movie."
"I've never read the book, but I've watched it on TV".
You need an object in both places, whether it's "it" or something else.
