The Outsider (Roswell High #1)
Max is in love with Liz. He loves the way her eyes light up when she laughs. And the way her long, black hair moves when she turns her head. Most of all, he loves to imagine what it would be like to kiss ...more
Wow! I found this at my local library while seeking out something to read. I just had to grab it because I loved the television series…. I just can’t get over how different the characters are. Michael is a blond… Isabelle is pathetic …gurr! The television versions of the characters are hotter and stronger!!. I had never noticed that the show was based on book until now. I have always been one who has a love hate relationship with books being brought to the small and big screen.

I just adore the TV show Roswell and all of its many characters. I even liked Sheriff Valenti - and yes I realize how sad this is.
This book is very different than the TV show (which makes it a pleasant surprise for me since I know the show from beginning to end). It is a good difference thou ...more

But I couldn't find any of the other books in that cardboard box with "FREE" scrawled on it in big black marker.
I eventually sold the book in a garage sale.
But yesterday, I was going through my AP English teacher's bookshelf for reading ...more
I've just read the book again for a Roswell read-a-thon and it was still good, the writing was a bit understated but I loved it just as well.
Este libro es el primero de la serie de Roswell. Para todos aquellos que vimos la serie de televisión, tenemos una clara idea de la historia, y en mi caso un fiel recuerdo de los personajes. Pero para aquellos que no la vieron, les cuento un poco de qué trata.

Years later, I discovered the show came from a book series and I immediately started looking for them to read them, I read all 10 books from the Roswell High Series as well as the 7 other books from the Roswe ...more

I had to constantly remind myself that the book came before the show, and to read it as such and not judge. But when I pushed all that aside I really did enjoy the read.

Even before starting to read I knew that there were going to be large differences between what was written and what happens during the show – so I wasn’t surprised when there were many differences. I went in well prepared and I lo ...more
Anyway this was an incredibly quick read, not very long at all. I blew right through it. It had good pacing though. It felt a bit rushed at the end though, sort of anti-climactic. If you HAVE seen the series, it follows pretty well. A few things were changed in the series but nothing overly huge, (perhaps Max's appearance?) and I enjoyed it.
If you are a fan of the tv show Roswell, then I think you would get a kick of this book and the rest of the series. They don't follow the tv show, like the Vampire Diaries,and they are a quick read. (unlike TVD)
