Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Worked well for a month of use, keeping my coffee hot every day so I didn't have to drink the instant stuff provided at work.

However, this morning I noticed it leaking from the bottom after pouring out my first cup. Apparently the glass liner had shattered at some point during my cycle ride to work, despite being in a rucksack with nothing but spare clothes and waterproofs.

I had thought the glass would be fairly well protected, due to the sheer size of the thing for only 500ml, but apparently not.

4.0 out of 5 stars Missingthepoint, 3 Jan. 2007
Unlike the above poster, I don't think that the series was intended to be read as an alternative to our current history, but simply as a fantasy story of an alternative world, which happens to share our own history and have dragons.

Given that, I have found the series very enjoyable, and would reccomend to other fantasy/sci-fi fans. Despite being set in 'our' world, it still brings the same feeling of a different world to be immersed in, unlike some stories set in our world.
