Sales of '1984' Soaring on Amazon

Following new disclosures about secret surveillance by the U.S. government, sales of George Orwell's classic novel "1984" have soared on Amazon.com.

The book, published in 1949, envisions a future where the population is monitored by round-the-clock surveillance and government agencies control all aspects of daily life.

News of the NSA's massive program to collect and store phone and Internet records boosted "1984" to the No. 11 position on Amazon's list of "Movers and Shakers."

The paperback version of the novel reached No. 101 among all books on Amazon.

A paperback that pairs "1984" with another Orwell classic, "Animal Farm," reached the No. 4 position in the Literature & Fiction category.

And Orwell reached No. 39 among all authors on Amazon.
