I agree with what, it seems, everyone else has said. Chapter length depends upon what is being written and that there should be a beginning, middle and end. However, I do feel that the trend has been toward shorter chapters, as compared to the earlier days of long, descriptive chapters. Modern-day attention spans aren’t what they used to be. Technology has given us great things (computer, writing software, etc.) but it has also unfortunately created a large population of those who desire and expect immediate gratification! Of course, there are exceptions. And trends are what they are. 😉
