What type of narrative style is used in Under The Volcano? I currently want a rest from the stream of consciousness technique.

Robert Johnson Bad news I am afraid. Not only is this novel done in stream of consciousness but the consciousness in question is severely impaired by end-stage alcoholism. When the Consul is having a conversation with his wife, half of the dialogue is made up or misheard by his need for a drink.
The book was difficult to plod through but Lowry is masterful regarding setting and descriptive language.
