    any one

    Dear teachers,

    Is it correct to say:

    This novel is more exciting than any other one I have ever read?

    Thank you.

    Re: any one

    I am not a teacher.
    I find no mistakes in the sentence.

    Re: any one

    Hello.
    I cast doubt on your sentence and I would say it in this way:

    This novel is the most exciting novel I have ever read.
    This novel is more exciting than the novels I've read before.

    But I'm not a teacher nor a native.

    I'm sorry but if my sentence is wrong where is the mistake? Thank you for other variants but I want to check out mine.

    This is your sentence:
    This novel is more exciting than any other one I have ever read?
    It will be correct if you compare two novels you have read before.
    And in this case it will sound like this:This novel is more exciting than the one I read last week.
