The Grapes of Wrath

why dos the book have some long full lengthen chapters and other are very short like inter-chapters? Is there an importance to it?

Most of the longer chapters seem to be related more to the characters and the others seem to be more about what is happening to the land/structures.

Yes a lot of chapters are different. Steinbeck inserted chapters merely for general information rather than character description. This historical commentary is supposed to add to the understanding of the "Joad experience" but many readers find it distracting.
