It really depends on your cultural context. I imagine to most of the Western world, mass surveillance is probably the only relatable thing. But I live in a country that only recently regained independence from a regime where things like rewriting history, people disappearing were a cruel reality, so it was very interesting to compare a fiction book from the 1940s to my parents/grandparents' stories from their real lives. Same goes for Animal Farm - both of those were very relatable. For someone who lives in a mature democracy, I can imagine it would be hard to relate to those things.
