In Death by Landscape Margaret Atwood explores the world of Lois a widowed woman who has just moved into a new home which she covers with pictures The story which develops from this I found was boring and another tale of lost sisterhood by Margaret Atwood One thing which I can applaud is the use of such vivid imagery which I would think is necessary for a story which deals a great deal with the historical Group of Seven from which Lois has developed such a large fascination with pictures of landscapes I found that the story attempted to make the reader see how in the era during and after the war life was tough and the rich began to thrive while those below that class began to fall lower into unending problems It was also interesting to get the perspective a girl has of going to camp because camp is usually associated with boys learning and maturing into men At camp Lois befriends a girl named Lucy who is the exact opposite of her This helps add an interesting twist to the story as the reader sees how two totally different people can exist in such harmony The depth that these characters are given makes them seem realistic and Lois later earn the readers pity for the guilt and loss which she must endure as Lucy supposedly dies causing Lois to mature from this experience Overall this story does have its good points and did show the rite of passage a girl takes into becoming a woman but I can never read a Margaret Atwood story without finding myself rushing to get it over with
