Blogger heather thought:

i thought it was cursory, superficial in its characterization, and generally fell short of any kind of dimension, either narratively or thematically. a sprawling structure--multiple stories from a wide array of citizens in a town called ice haven, all of which are intended to intersect--should produce a sprawling work. instead, this graphic novel is flimsier than a free comic book at the dentist's. and the drawings are, despite a nice palette, unresolved and uncomplicated.

i've also heard the entire work was previously published in mr. clowes's _eightball 22_, which i've not read. i don't like that kind of shysterism, either.

so i pretty much thought it bonked.
