I bought this back in April 2014 and the element has just gone. I was happy with the product while it was working but I don't think that 7 months is a decent life expectancy for a kettle. Won't be buying Morphy Richards again.
I always try to see the best in books and this had a promising storyline to begin with. I just found that I was still waiting for it to take off and it finished! I'm sure the author planned to reveal the bigger picture over a series of books but the characters didn't engage me enough to bother reading the next installment. Disappointed but it was free so nothing lost.
