It's been decades since I've read the Venus books, but I also preferred Carson Napier to Carter. He comes across as more mortal and relatable, and isn't as cocky and arrogant as Carter could be (it should be noted that the gravity difference between Earth and Venus is fairly minor, only giving him a slight physical advantage), keenly aware that at any given moment the entire damned planet might try to kill him. He might wake up in a given day, realize that he hadn't been murdered in his sleep, and figured that he was doing pretty well for the day.7) I find the main character more compelling and reasonable.
Also, Duare is a superior character to Dejah Thoris, in that she actually has a personality.
