    I assume it's figurative (unless this is a science fiction book). Do you know what a black hole is? The person feels as if a huge hole has opened up in the room and he or she was sucked into it. I'm not sure which part is the problem. Is it black hole?

    Without more context, I'd guess the speaker felt embarrassed about something he or she, or someone said or did.

    It's figurative - obviously a real black hole didn't suddenly appear. ;)


    Edit: JamesM makes a good point - is it a sci-fi story?
