Why did James Potter series didn't leave a mark as Harry Potter series

Updated on November 5, 2015

I recently read the James Potter series written by G. Norman Lippert which is an unofficial continuation of the world famous series Harry Potter by J.K.Rowling and I liked it very much. After reading the Harry Potter series I was really desperate to read any other books continuing the story of Harry Potter and the fact that made Harry Potter series this interesting which was the simple but elegant writing can be seen in James Potter also. I don't mean to offend any writer but according to me writing style in both the series is very much alike which suits the purpose since James Potter series is the direct continuation of the story of Harry Potter in which James is the son of Harry Potter, but according to me when I talk to the people I know or when I surf the Internet I don't find or hear about James Potter as regularly as Harry Potter. According to me the most important reason for this along with the others is the quite opposite characters of Harry Potter and James Potter. Although James Potter has his own qualities but he is quite different from his father, I mean when Harry Potter was written every one loved the character of Harry Potter who was a lot like his own father he is shown to be very brave and a bit reckless and pretty good in spells and quidditch. He is always eager to jump into action along with Ron and the thinking and planning part is mostly done by Hermione . When James potter came everyone was expecting him to be like harry potter as people and children mostly used to idolize the character of Harry Potter. James Potter is shown to be more of a planner and group leader kind of guy whereas Malfoy kid acts as the spearhead of the group though his powerful spells which place was expected to be taken by James Potter as he was the idol son of Harry Potter. James is less shown in action relative to Harry but more in planning and managing. He was expected to do well in Quidditch in which he fails which is later on covered up but don't worry I won't spoil it by saying. Harry Potter series has shown many instant threats which made it very exciting but James Potter series spends a good amount of time in planning of greater threats. So overall I think James Potter is quite wonderful series but James has been largely overshadowed by Harry as you can see even in James Potter series when Harry enters the scene, then the readers become more interested in him than in James Potter.

These were my thoughts but I would love to know yours also so please mention your point of view in the comments section.
