Reviewed by Janelle Fila for Readers' Favorite Ketchup on Everything by Nathan Robinson is a weird and creepy tale that had my heart pumping from page one. There are two stories that mingle within these pages. The backstory is the more normal of the two but comes in pieces later on, filling the reader in when they are overwhelmed with questions. When Elliot's son Evan goes missing, his life as he knows it ends. This story is heart wrenching and, as a parent, really hard to read. I could understand how Elliott would feel to lose a child and how his wife would respond by not getting out of bed. I understood the grief that came between them and caused them to drift further and further apart until there was nothing left for them. I could also understand why, years later, overwhelmed with grief, Elliot sold his house, bought a motor home and started traveling the country. Which brings us to the second part of the story (but is actually the start of the story, so the reader is dumped into the scene head first). Elliot stops at a diner after a hard day on the road. It is creepy from the beginning, one of those places where you just know something bad is going to happen (like the Bates motel). Not just bad, but weird like a Stephen King novel, because, sure enough, two crazy strangers come into the diner followed by Elliot's eight-year-old son, looking exactly the same as the day he disappeared. Creepy!

Elliot Tather is a man who has lost everything. He had a good life but one event caused it all to fall apart and now he is a lonely person traveling the countryside in an RV searching for meaning. He finds what he is looking for one night when he arrives at an all night diner and witnesses something unbelievable that changes everything. I’m not even sure where to begin on talking about Ketchup On Everything by Nathan Robinson. This is one great novella, but if I talk about it too much it will spoil it. When I started reading it I immediately fell in love with the main character, Elliot. Everything is described from his view-point and he goes into great depth describing the diner that he goes into and the waitress that is taking his order. You begin to care for the waitress as well as Elliot’s inner thoughts describe the kind of person he thinks she is. In the beginning you also get a quick glimpse of the RV that he is traveling in and I found myself wondering what brought Elliot to the diner and why does he talk like his wife is with him. The story may unfold slowly with very little action but you are so into the characters that you don’t really notice. We eventually hear about Elliot’s past and I found myself wondering would I be like Elliot if this happened to me? When I was half way through the book I was thinking  where is this story going?  Then a whole new story begins that makes you question what happened earlier in the book. This is a masterfully told tale that has a slow build and ends with a lot of action and an exciting climax. Ketchup On Everything combines real life horrors with fictional horrors. This is the perfect horror novella because it preys on your emotions. You care about Elliot and you watch him go through every parent’s worst nightmare and then you get hit with a surprise twist. This book may have an odd title but it does make sense when you read it. The title and description of this book gives no clue as to what comes in the second half of the book, which is where everything changes. Do yourself a favor and get a copy of Ketchup On Everything.  You won’t regret it.
