I rarely like present tense because it's too distracting for me. I can't explain it, but I can't get lost in the story. It's too immediate somehow, or too stilted, or too...eh, I can't explain it. I have enjoyed a few, a rare few, present tense novels, and in all those cases, I hardly realized it was written in the present tense. I think present tense is just harder to write than past tense, and therefore harder to write well. If it's written well, fine, but that's very difficult to do.

I also typically prefer third person to first person, though I have myself written a first person novel. It's limiting, however.

I don't think I could stand to read a second person novel. Don't tell me what I'm doing. I want to read about other people, not about myself. That's just weird.

I think there's a reason the majority of novels, for so long, have been written in third person past tense. On average, it works best. It doesn't mean the other kinds can't work; it's just harder to make them work.
