I read The Fellowship of the Ring to my 13-year-old son for our nightly read-aloud. It had been a very long time since I read it, so I decided it was okay to include it. Most people are familiar with the story, and since I’m trying to catch up I won’t go into too much detail. It is the quintessential fantasy/quest/battle-between-good-and-evil epic. The descriptions are breath-taking, and the struggle to overcome temptation is inspiring.
