    Far from

    Hello,

    No weird fiction today.

    I would like to ask if I may use to be far from being like I did in the examples below.

    "I like the way ManUnited plays though I am far from being a hardcore fan of the club."
    "I am far from being a fan of horror genre though some horror books are really good."

    Thanks a lot

    Thanks a lot.
    "far from [being]" is used correctly in both. Note my other corrections. I would use just "horror" rather than "the horror genre".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
