Editorial Reviews

Review

"...Engaging work of literary fiction based around the intertwining lives of three female friends in New York. The massive black hole of the title is a reference to the Pseudo-Bosch painting Christ's Descent into Hell which is a major motif in the story.  The author cites fellow Brazilian author Paulo Coelho as a major influence and it is evident in this novel with its narrative that wanders from the sacred to the mundane to the highly figurative." - Mercia McMahon, writer

"Takes the reader into the minds and lives of two shallow, bitter, evil-minded women whose attitudes send them spiraling towards their own destruction, leaving pain and suffering in their wake. It is nearly impossible to really like either of these two women- they are nasty, cruel, bitter, shallow people who seem to go out of their way to make themselves unlikeable, but at the same time Barbosa does a masterful job of drawing her readers into these characters and their lives, making them real people, not caricatures, women who had choices and could have become someone better." - OnlineBookClub.org

"As a former crisis/school counselor, this was a great book for me to read. Homeless & transients can be quite challenging to work with. Great story line, kind of a psychological thriller, quite a few unexpected twist/turns, never a dull moment & great characters. Might even make a great movie. I ended up giving it a rating of 5 stars." - Tony Parsons MSW

"Barbosa's contemporary fiction novel is sometimes reminiscent of Jean-Paul Sartre's existentialist play, No Exit. This is a dark and unsettling novel filled with contradictions and the ever-present abyss.
Massive Black Hole gives the reader lots to think about." - Jack Magnus for Readers' Favorite
