Why can’t I understand books written in third person narrative?

I realized that most of the books I have read are written in first person. Recently, I have tried to read books written in third person and I always find myself feeling confused. I always try to read one full chapter but once the chapter's over, I close the book, try to retell the story in my head, aaaand boom, turns out, I didn't understand anything.

I just want to know if there's a way to fix this because I feel like I'm missing out on good stories. A friend told me to try Harry Potter and I did try to but I just can't understand anything that's going on.
