Is it okay to use passive voice with "with great interest", such as "With great interest, the book was read." or "The book was read with great interest"?
Mostly I see people say or write "With great interest, I..." I'm not sure whether it is okay that there isn't a clear subject, such as I, you, he, etc. written before or after this phrase. The reason I wanted to write it this way is that it would sound more formal when "I" is not used in such a sentence.
