a better book
« on: July 12, 2019, 08:24:44 am »
Are these sentences correct:

1) The book you are reading is not that good. A better book is Tolstoy's "War and Peace".

2) The tool you bought is not very useful. A more useful tool would be the wrench you didn't buy.

3) The movie you are talking about is not really important. A more important movie is Antonioni's "L'Aventura".

Gratefully,
Navi

They are fine except I would not use "important" about a film. What are you trying to say exactly?

Thank you very much, Duncan,

The idea was that the movie was ground-breaking in the history of cinema. It was a turning point. Take Orson Wells' Citizen Kane for instance. They say it was a turning point in the history of the medium.

OK: I see your point. Another word could be "significant".

Thank you very much, Duncan,

I think  'Significant' is better than 'important'.
