George Orwell's dystopian vision of the future, 1984, has sold out on Amazon after sales skyrocketed during Donald Trump's first week as president. The 68-year-old novel bumped up the bestseller chart throughout the week, finally reaching #1, with the book's publisher, Penguin, rushing to print more copies.
"We put through a 75,000 copy reprint this week. That is a substantial reprint and larger than our typical reprint for 1984," a Penguin spokesman told CNN Money earlier this week.
1984 is not the only classic dystopian novel to have seen a surge in popularity. Sinclair Lewis' It Can't Happen Here and Aldous Huxley's Brave New World have also climbed in the charts.
