I am trying to correctly write the following sentence:
Each chapter takes over where the previous chapter ended.
It sounds slightly messy and unnecessarily long and I suspect it to not be properly formulated. Is there an actual phrase in English with which you can say this properly or in a better way? (I hope the intended meaning is clear: that the chapters a chronological and if read one after another there wouldn't be "holes".)
Three questions about particular details to this example:
- Can I replace
continues fromor similar?
Each chapter continues from where the previous chapter ended.
- Am I correctly using the word
previousor should I use
Each chapter takes over where the former chapter ended.
Each chapter takes over where the preceding chapter ended.
- And can I omit the words
whereand instead use
fromwithout loosing or changing the meaning?
Each chapter takes over from the previous chapter.
