Plots? Or Stream-of-Consciousness? Which would you rather read?

I’ve not read much stream-of-consciousness, but it does intrigue me. Virginia Woolf’s To The Lighthouse was fascinating to me, though difficult at times to read. I definitely enjoy a brilliantly crafted plot, a la Sarah Waters’s Fingersmith, and am more likely to read something like that, but I think that stream-of-consciousness is a different sort of experience altogether for the reader; it brings you in on a level not many people can actively access, let alone portray with words.

Anyone have any good recommendations for stream-of-consciousness?
