Is the following expression correct
it is not that of much ease

No.  All I can think of that it might be is �it �s not that easy �.

 I think we can say, it �s not that much easy

I agree with Lynne-(Cunliffe),

I �m with Lynne.
@ pinkblossom: "much" is used with comparatives, isn �t it?
Also "it �s not that much of a probplem" comes to mind... but I haven �t heard what you mentioned.
Maybe the key is in the context where "that" refers to something previously mentioned. E.g. "He lives a simple life but it �s not that of much ease" could this be the case? Native-speaking forum people, what do you think?

Yes, your sentence is possible, Sophia, but I would change the �that � to �one �. And to be a stickler, change �but � to �and �.
