Any use? Does he go into his ideological thoughts about what he was fighting for?

Last book I read was aquariums of pyongyang, an account of life in North Korea and its prison camps and how the author escaped, was a very good read

dont read books very often. Cant remember the last time I read one. Hard to get recommendations off ppl as well cos everyone has different interests.
Matt Cooper: What do you think is different this time?
John Delaney: Well we can understand our manager which is great. I tell you what, his English was always great when we were discussing the wages!
