    Question 's genitive

    Hello,

    Could you please tell me if the folowing sentence is ok:

    Your story is interesting indeed, but Paul's is more interesting.
    or should I repeat "story" in
    Your story is interesting indeed, but Paul's story is more interesting.

    thank you!

    Your story is really compelling, but not so much as Paul's.

    No need to repeat story. Yours looked fine.
