Description
About Gregory

I am Gregory Nassif St. John. I am an actor in Atlanta, Georgia and in the past 5 years I've narrated over 60 plus audiobooks. I have narrated a variety of genres that range from fantasy fiction, to non-fiction, to academic works. Depending on the genre of title and writing - my reading ratio averages 1 hour and 20/30 minutes to get a finished hour. There have been times when it was 1 hour and 15 minutes and in a few cases 1 hour 45 minutes, but never the usual 2 hour ratio. I have always finished either right on schedule, but more often than not - ahead of schedule. I have performed selected public readings ... more of Dickens for the last 30 years, most often and notably, "A Christmas Carol" which has been recorded and will be for sale soon on Amazon. I do have home studio capability. Please visit my website: ww.gregorynassifstjohn.com for more about me. REVIEWS: THE GREAT EXPECTATIONS SCHOOL By Dan Brown Gregory St. John’s performance is spot-on, and he modulates his voice skillfully, both to underline Brown’s indictment of public education in the United States as well as his genuine optimism that determined people can and do make learning possible for kids, no matter the obstacles. A PLACE WITH PROMISE By Edward Swift Gregory St. John’s folksy tone and his mastery of southwestern American dialect are highlighted in his performance of Edward Swift’s A Place with Promise: A Novel. St. John’s performance is imbued with wistfulness and warmth as he voices the story’s characters with a comic touch that never edges into ridicule. THE SECRET LIVES OF THE SUPREME COURT By Robert Schackenberg Gregory St. John performs this audiobook with a wry amusement befitting the eccentric material. THE GREAT AMERICAN FORECLOSURE STORYBy Paul Kiel, Olga Pierce and Cora Currier Performed as an impassioned but reasonable plea by Gregory St. John, Kiel’s piece of long-form reportage uses one homeowner, Sheila Ramos, as a vehicle through which listeners may have a firsthand experience of foreclosure’s horrors. BRANDJAM By Marc Gobe Gregory St. John's forceful, persuasive performance sells Gobe's theories, making them resonate with the listener. THE LITTLE DEATH By Michael Nava One of the things that distinguish this mystery (besides the relatively rare gay protagonist) is the exquisite writing. The prose is spare but elegant, and the smooth, cultured voice of the narrator, Gregory St. John (with whom I was not familiar), though perhaps arguable how well it is suited to the nature and ethnicity of the protagonist, is absolutely perfect for the tone and tenor of the writing. Listening to him turned out to be an ideal way to appreciate the author's remarkable craftsmanship: his understated but genius turns of phrase (so many phrases I wanted to write down to remember later!), his control of the plot, the flow and seeming effortlessness of the writing. less
