    The classic novel 1984 by George Orwell is once again a bestseller in the US. Nearly 200 cinemas held screenings of the film version of the book as a form of protest against President Donald Trump on Tuesday.

    There is growing concern that the dystopian world foretold by Orwell could be realised under Trump's presidency.
