I'm still very slowly chewing through Remembrance of Things Past by Marcel Proust. I'm currently at around 650 pages in, or just over a quarter of the novel read.

I'm not very good at talking about books, but one thing I do love about Proust is his ability to almost exhaustively showcase the mental processes going on in the narrator's mind; you get several pages just talking about how he feels uncomfortable about talking to a girl. And he picks up on the tiniest mannerisms to give you insight into a person's character.
