The Book Thief

  

by Markus Zusak

Arthur Berg

Character Analysis

Arthur Berg is the first leader of the fruit (and vegetable) stealing gang that Liesel and Rudy join. He's fair and generous with the take. Arthur isn't the type to leave somebody stranded on the barbed wire fence if they get stuck.
