I love writing in third person, as it gives you a wider opportunity in adding scenes and etc that does not include the main character.

Honestly, first person turns me off a bit, as usually there would be less description and more action, and the word(maybe letter?) "I" can get very, very repetitive and degrading to read. =/

First person does have its advantages though, as it allows you to build up your character's personality far better than third person. Though, as for the other characters, it'll be harder to do that, as their personality must circulate only through the perspective of your main character.

I still can't understand what second person perspective means.
Too bad we don't live to experinece death

"For a short space of time I remained at the window watching the pallid lightnings that played above Mont Blanc and listening to the rushing of the Arve, which pursued its noise way beneath. The same lulling sounds acted as a lullaby to my too keen sensations; when I placed my head upon my pillow, sleep crept over me; I felt it as it came and blessed the giver of oblivion."
— Mary Shelley, Frankenstein
