The Sound and the Fury by William Faulkner (1929). Some books are nearly impossible to explain in words, and The Sound and the Fury is one of them. You must experience it. It is narrated by three siblings in three different years in the early 1900s, one of whom is a mentally challenged man, Benjy, who has no sense of time. Therefore, the book is both stream of consciousness and non-chronological. Although it is an overwhelming read for that reason, it is also fantastically executed. After my one read of this book a distant two months ago, I cannot explain what happened in the book, but I can tell you I want to reread it. Definitely.
