First or Third Person: Which Do You Prefer?
For me it's more about the story. Some stories work better with a certain perspective. While I do enjoy first person narratives (and am currently writing one), I think that they have been somewhat overdone recently, particularly in the YA category. Even with first person I tend to prefer novels that switch between different characters.
What I really enjoy about a third person narrative is that it usually allows the story to have a broader scope. When you're dealing with first person you're confined to a single person's thoughts. With third person, even if you're still mostly following one character, there is some room for outside information.
Overall I would probably say that I prefer third person, although I have enjoyed many novels that make use of both.
What do you think, first or third person? Do you have a preference? Let me know in the comments!
