Similarly, the targets for satire - sneering aristocrats, brutal and hypocritical religious zealots, vacuous and self-regarding bimbos, and so on - are worthy subjects but were all so grotesquely exaggerated that it took much of the sting out of it. Also, the style is often gently ironic which simply doesn't fit the story it is telling.
