I hear that its been getting a lot of bad press in reviews lately because of its similarity to Harry Potter,there are people who are convinced it is a cheap rip off of Rowling when in actual fact the first book was written in the 1970's,therefore it predates Harry Potter by quite a long while.
Someone else who has been accused of ripping off HP is TP himself.Apparently somebody asked him whether he stole the idea of unseen university from Hogwarts to which he replied, "Yes,of course I used a time machine",
