NSA Scandal to Blame for ‘1984’ Sales Boost?

Is the NSA scandal to blame for the big sales boost of the classic novel 1984 this week?

That’s what the writers for Vulture seem to believe. According to them, sales of the 1949 classic novel rose 5,771 percent on Amazon this week. The book is set in the future 1984 and tells the story of a society that’s watched closely by its government and referred to as Big Brother. With the news of the cell phone surveillance, it all kind of sounds familiar, huh?

    I read “1984” in high school — it was required reading ( we didn’t have Kindles, tablets, or anything except the printed page ! ), and it still resonates today. Anyone who blindly trusts government — any government — to look out for their best interests should read this.
