Advice some Turkish classic literature

Please, advice some Turkish classic literature (to read in Turkish). Better if it is available as free e-book, of course.

Try typing one of these into google and the word ebook or something and you might find it? Can I recommend that when you do a really helpful tool to use when starting to read in a new language is learning with texts. I use this with a lot of the languages I am learning. You can put text in and it highlights words you don't know. www.lwtfi3m.co

I would suggest Oğuz Atay. Although it's a bit difficult to understand and interpret the real meanings behind his stories, he usually wrote them in a simple and modern language.

His greatest novel is Tutunamayanlar but it's too much for a learner. I would recommend Korkuyu Beklerken which is a thin book consisting of short stories.
