    I have not ever read it but watched it

    Hi,

    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'.

    Thank you.

    Re: I have not ever read it but watched 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.
