I don't think anyone should write a chapter that long. God... Really? That's just... So much.

Writing is all about conveying a message and getting a point across. Hemingway got right to the point, and wrote novels that barely scraped the mid-section of other classics. If you can't get to the point in under 15 pages, I have to wonder what you're writing about. (EDIT: By "You", I mean the "general" "you". Not poking at Astinus specifically)
