Vine and Honey : 100 Best Vines of All Time by Ben MarkA friend had gotten this for me as a gift a while back kind of as a joke. Lovers of Vine and those who wish to re-experience a bit of nostalgia, stay away from this book. The editor/author did not add any original content to the book, and each page is blank except for a few lines of text for each Vine, leading to an aggressive waste of paper. I understand that this is also partially a humorous take on Milk and Honey, although with that said, there are no illustrations as there are in Milk and Honey. If there were at least original illustrations the author could be warranted in selling this book as something that even resembled original content.
Many of the Vines have glaring spelling errors. Although some Vines are warranted in it (where the spelling errors accurately recreate the speech patterns that appeared in the original vine), many of these errors are clearly not intentional, and would have been noticed if there was even a semblance of a read-through by the author or an editor prior to publishing (e.g. page 36, Two *bruuhs* chilling in *the* hot tub, page 40, What the fuck *if* up Kyle.). There are numerous other issues, such as the Shower Time/Diesel Jeans vine showing up twice, once on page 45 and again on page 52, and page 49 is completely blank.
Additionally, the Vines are not properly sourced to their original creators. On page 109 there is a short list of acknowledgements including a few of the Vine creators, although it is not exhaustive and there is nowhere in the book where specific Vines are credited to their creators.
All in all, this seems like an easy and lazy cash grab to capitalize on nostalgia. This book is styled as an homage to Vine, but the thought of that is insulting with how little effort was put into this book. Honestly, youre better off just watching Vine compilations on Youtube; this is a waste of money.
