I'm not sure if it works but I'm trying it anyway. (So far it has been grueling reading the thoughts of various character types but I'm persisting despite not actually enjoying it very much)

There is a few posters who read a fair bit on here.

What are you thoughts on this?

For my part, Dostoevskij helped me to understand people. But he's a christian author, that tries to demonstrate his religious credo in his writings, and he's cerebral too... I am not sure that you would like his books. On the other hand he's deep, intuitive and clever, and I perceive him as less moralistic than others.

And what about Ulysses by James Joyce? Perhaps it could help because of his narrative mode, the stream of consciousness. Honestly I didn't read it. I tried many yeas ago, but I stopped, it was too much difficult for me.
