As long as the book was read in its entirety, I consider it a great accomplishment, a success. When readers are curious enough and your writing picks up their attention, you're a successful writer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Massive Black Hole - Andrea's first step to the stars, July 8, 2013
By Alla - See all my reviews
Amazon Verified Purchase
This review is from: Massive Black Hole (Paperback)
I purchased this book because I got intrigued by its name and beautiful cover in Blue & Black. I started reading it and could not stop wishing to know what would happen further. In addition to clear language, intriguing fabula and captivating description of the Black Hole, it is philosophic and makes you think of the essence of life and choices we make every day. The Black Hole is really scary whether it is real or imaginative, and no one would want to end up in this hell.... Andrea is very talented and should continue writing, and she already has me as a devoted reader of her future books. Massive Black Hole by Andrea Barbosa


Andrea Massive Black Hole's 5 star review on Barnes & Noble:

Massive Black Hole


Posted June 6, 2013
This book is great! It's very interesting to see the development

This book is great! It's very interesting to see the development of the characters and their struggle with the situations that come their way! I loved it! The descriptions of the places are great, I can't wait to visit New York and Rio de Janeiro and see the locations for real! The ending is so unexpected and you have no idea what is going to happen. Very surprising, I was not expecting it. Amazing!
