Big brother is watching -- sales of George Orwell's dystopian novel 1984 have skyrocketed in the wake of revelations of US government surveillance. The centennial edition of the novel surged 7005 per cent on Amazon, according to the online retailer's Mover and Shakers in Books page that monitors biggest gainers in sales rank compared to 24 hours ago.
