Is phrase 저것은 제 동무의 책입니다 correct? Hello! I know how to say in Korean "That is my book": 저것은 제 책입니다. But I have doubts it is correct to use attributive particle (의) twice. I would like to say: "That is my friend's book". Is 저것은 제 동무의 책입니다 correct? Is there better way to say the same? Thank you very much.

We say 친구 not 동무. Usually, 동무 is used by North Koreans. Except that, your sentence sounds natural because you said 제 instead of 저의. I think repeating the same word, 의, will make your sentence strange. 저것은 제 친구의 책입니다. This sounds 100 percent natural. 저것은 저의 친구의 책입니다. This sounds a bit awkward to me.
