I agree with DrNefario. My favorite author, Louis L'Amour, does both first-person and third-person. But, in books with more than one main character, never does first-person. It just seems odd and would get confusing trying to remember who's point of view I was in whether it's in stated in the heading or first paragraph or whatever.

Sue Grafton always does first-person and it makes the stories seem more real to me. But again, there's only one main character. There's never any question who the "I" is.
