    Smile comperative adj.

    We say "that book is much more expensive than this one". Can we say much less expensive? I mean can we use much before less too?

    Sure. Much may modify the adjectives more and less.

    We've got much less(or more) money in our savings account than I thought.

    What is the sense of the sentence: "that book is much less expensive than this one" - does it mean "it is cheaper than this one"?
    I think we can use it in right connection e.g."that book is much less expensiv than we thought".

    In many cases, people use "less expensive" instead of "cheaper" because "cheaper" can also imply "poorly made".
